I had a positive HPT yesterday morning and again this morning, but a couple of hours ago I started bleeding. Less than a full-on period, but definitely more than mere spotting. And if I hadn’t been charting, I would have just thought I was having a light and late period. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
Has anyone experienced actual bleeding –not spotting–and managed to stay pregnant? For what it’s worth, I don’t have any cramping so far. And I normally get pretty bad cramps with a plain old period.

I’m so sorry Hun!! When I had my CP I had a positive for 3 days then started bleeding. It was pretty light at first but then turned into full on bleeding. I had a feeling it was happening though because my tests were getting lighter instead of darker. When I got my 2nd BFP and called to schedule my appointment they told me to call immediately if I had any bleeding and if it was after hours I needed to go to the ER. Might not be a bad idea to go to the ER. but on the reverse side of that, my SIL and my mom (with me actually) both had normal periods their first month of pregnancy, so there is still a chance of a positive outcome. Wishing you all the best! Hugs!!

@PlusOne: I’m so sorry to hear this lovey. I have no advice because there’s nothing you can really do but ride it out right now. I’m hoping with all my heart that this is just early pregnancy spotting and your little bean is still safe and snug in there. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you tonight. if you need anything, you know where I am. *hugs*

Thanks so much, guys. Your responses mean a lot to me. I knew this was a very real possibility, but I’m surprised nonetheless by how scary and disappointing this is. I know I’ll be able to pull myself together after the initial letdown.
I think the pregnancy wasn’t at all real to Darling Husband at this point, so he’s not as phased by it. I know he doesn’t mean it that way, but some of his remarks are making me feel like he thinks I’m being silly about the whole thing.
I’m going to go make myself a cup of tea and crawl into bed. I’ll deal with tomorrow as it happens.
Hugs to you all.

The bleeding tapered off for the most part by midnight, and this morning it’s just brown spotting so far. My doctor’s away, so I’m at the walk-in clinic now, waiting to see a nurse-practitioner. I’m so out of it, I almost forgot to do up my fly after collecting my urine sample. I’m just grateful I caught it before I headed back to work!
I don’t expect I’ll have any answers today. This weekend is going to be a nailbiter.

They ordered an ultrasound at 6 weeks, so two weeks from now, to see if there’s anything still in there. There’s nothing to be done until then. I just hope the bleeding was my little bean whipping out the power tools to anchor itself in there nice and firmly. But for now there’s no way to know for sure one way or the other.
You guys are the bright spot in all of this. Thank you for all the support.

I’m so sorry to hear. Unfortunately, the same thing happened to my sister and it ended up being a MC. Hope that is not the case for you. My sis got pregnant the next month after her MC though and is having a very healthy pregnancy! 🙂

I started bleeding around 4.5 weeks. Wasn’t much (more than spotting, less than period), and there was no cramping, but it was bright red, so I was freaking out. It started around 8pm. By the morning it had turned to brown spotting. In the morning I went to the ER, and they did an exam. Said my cervix was still closed, so they didn’t really know what was going on.
Now I’m 20.5 weeks, and just found out it’s a girl. My Dr said it was probably just the embryo burrying deeper into my uterus.
