So something really strange just happened. I’ve been having a funny feeling in my stomach for the past hour or so like AF was coming. I finally went to the bathroom. There was bright red blood in the toilet. When I wiped, there was bright red blood on the tp. When I wiped again there wasn’t anymore. I am only CD19 but I O’ed early this cycle so I am about 8DPO. I’ve had spotting prior to AF come as early as CD23 (it happened twice) but never on CD19 and not like this. I’m a little scared and nervous.
Is this AF coming really early? Could all the RE testing I had at the beginning of my cycle caused this to happen?
I’m afraid to go to the bathroom again to see if more blood is coming out. I did not feel any wetness in my underwear prior and I don’t think I am now. There was no blood on my underwear either.
Would could possibly be happening?

Did you have sex during your FW? The timing is right for it to be implantation bleeding. Otherwise, it could just be a fluke– our bodies do weird things sometimes!

I would say implantation bleeding is more likely than early AF at this point – do you know how long your luteal phase is normally? If it’s normally not short, 8DPO would be super early for AF to start. FX for you!

I used to have really light periods and that sort of thing has happened to me. I wouldn’t worry about it.

OldMrsMcDonald: yes, we have been actively trying for many cycles. i’m keeping FX that is it implantation bleeding.
SadieBee: i think my LP is usually 13 days, but everything has been so wonky since we started TTC. every cycle so far has been something different. FX you are right that it is implantation bleeding.
RunnerBride13: thanks, every cycle of TTC has been different for me so i never know what to expect.
i did go back to the bathroom and there was nothing, so i’m hoping as the 2 PP’s mentioned that it is implantation bleeding.
any experience with implantation bleeding? if that’s what this is. is it a one time quick thing or does it occur over a few days.

Update: my spotting today is back to “normal spotting before AF”. so now it is just a matter of waiting if AF arrives or not.

ajillity81: I hope that spotting goes away. Did you test by any chance?

candy11: no. i would only test on friday, maybe saturday. that is if AF doesn’t come today. otherwise, i’ll just let it play out naturally on my trip and see what happens.
