Simple question, did you have it?
This is only our 2nd cycle trying… obviously I didn’t have any implantation bleeding the 1st cycle since we’re still trying. But I feel like I have it stuck in my head “If there’s no implantation bleeding, you’re not pregnant.” How true is this? Did anyone not have any signs of that, but still end up pregnant? I’m just curious.

I’m currently 6 weeks pregnant and I did have it! However I read that most people don’t get it at all. So if you dont get it don’t let it stress you too much ok 🙂 it’s different for everyone 🙂 I guess it made it easier for me to know quite early along.. But it’s making the first trimester drag because I’ve known that I was pregnant from so early lol

Never had it, and a 9 month old child is proof that you can be pregnant without having the implantation bleeding.

That is good to know.. thanks ladies! I’m not trying to be a crazy lady about it, but of course when you’re TTC any little sign that you’re pregnant is welcome!

I had it (26 weeks pregnant). For me, it was only a tiny bit, and I doubt I’d have noticed at all if I hadn’t been expecting AF and checking the toilet paper every time I wiped. I had one tiny spot of blood when I wiped one day, and the same the next. I also felt exactly like AF was coming, so I just assumed it was the spotting I usually get the day before my period shows up. However, a couple days later and there was nothing else, so I tested.
Only about 30 percent of women experience any implantation bleeding, so obviously that’s a huge percentage of women who show no symptoms at all. Don’t freak yourself out looking for it!

I had it! Mine was a small amount of brown spotting for 3 days from 8-10 dpo.

I had it with my first pregnancy, it was just some brown spotting for me at about 10 DPO. I never, ever spot before AF so I knew immediately I was pregnant. I also had an implantation temperature dip. With this pregnancy I had absolutely nothing at all…zero spotting, no temp dip, so I was sure I wasn’t pregnant…I figured if I had it before I would have to have it again. I was wrong!

I had ovulation bleeding (just a TINY bit each cycle) but nothing I can totally say was implantation bleeding – I was also a pre-AF ‘spotter’ once I got off of birth control, so if I would have gotten pregnant the first cycle, I could have thought the spotting was implantation, but it was just something my body liked to do – haha…

I had a fairly obvious implantation dip in my chart but no bleeding. And I have an almost 6 month old little girl. 🙂

I think more people don’t have implantation bleeding than those that do.
I did have it, but mine was even more unusual because it lasted 3-4 days and I thought it was my period…so it was more than just spotting! I had pretty light periods FWIW on BCP before I went off and became pregnant so I just assumed it was my period.

Never had any and I have two kids!

I was pregnant once and I miscarried very early but I did have implantation bleeding. it happened about 10 DPO. As soon as I saw it, I knew what it was. My period wasn’t due for another week and though I usually spot before, I never spot a whole week before! It was light red/pinkish, just a spot when I wiped, and another tiny spot the next day. Then I had brownish spotting closer to AF which I normally get…but the light pink bleeding earlier in the week was my cue that I was pregnant 🙂
I know it’s not common to have implantation bleeding, but I”m a big “bleeder” (eg when I was on the pill always had breakthrough bleeding) so I sort of thought that when/if I got pregnant, it would happen to me. But every woman is obviously different, and it sounds like every pregnancy is different too, so a woman can have implantation bleeding with one pregnancy and not the next.

Again, thanks everyone! It definitely sounds like there’s a good mix of those who got it & those who didn’t.. so I’m going to *try* and not think about it, and let whatever happens happen 🙂
