I don’t know if there are stats on it. 

I didn’t get implantation bleeding. This two week wait time is a killer. 

Theres not a lot you can do but sit back and wait. 

I can tell you that upon deciding to ttc my absolutely regular painless perfect periods went loopy for a few months and I was all over the place with my cycle with spotting and whatnot.  It’s like your body knows the sensitivies to everything now you’re trying. The ‘relax’ advice is hard I know but it’s said for a reason.

fingers crossed for you this month or next.

Are you charting? What are your temperatures doing? 

ETA: I don’t think ovulating spotting must be brown. I think it can be pink for some people.

If I remember correctly, I think only about 10% of people get implantation bleeding. I’ve been pregnant 4 times, never had implantation bleeding. Other bees here have had it every time. 

But your dpo and AF date don’t jive. LP’s are on average 14 days. If your AF isn’t due until next week, that means you have a 18 or 19 day LP, not totally unheard of, but very rare. 

What are you doing to confirm ovulation?

I didn’t have any…but far more common is an increase in EWCM beyond ovulation. Almost everyone I know pregnant has experienced this. I had A LOT and still continue to have quite a bit.

I’ve been pregnant 5 times. I had IB every time. It might be one of those things either you always get it, or never.

I didn’t have it with my first pregnancy but I’m 7 weeks along right now and had it this time around 9-10 dpo. I had pink spotting when I wiped and then about an hour later light brown spotting. That was it so I assume it was implantation bleeding.
