I’m new here. I heard that this website is full of supportive women. Hubby and I are ttc (just not seriously active yet – don’t want to stress) and here is what happened last month. Some background first – I have not been charting and only use a calendar to keep track of my periods. I use an app on my phone that alerts me when AF is due. Anyway, my cycles average 34 days now. Last month, I used an opk and got a positive late afternoon on May 26th. We didn’t BD until about 30 hours after the positive (late evening on the 27th, past midnight on the 28th). Before we BDed, I actually used another opk and found it negative.
Fast forward to this past weekend, June 8th, saw spotting (bright red) that became pretty much like AF but not full force like usual. My periods last 3 days and can be heavy but this one was not as heavy. Could it be implantation bleeding? I was looking at an online calendar after filling in my information and June 8th was the most possible day for implantation based on expected O day/conception. Or was it really AF? I can’t tell! I read some people’s experiences about implantation bleeding and they thought it was their period early until they got their bfp days later. It lasted only 2 days and stopped yesterday morning. Yesterday morning and today, I am seeing more spotting but this time, it’s brown. I read that that’s usually the color of implantation bleeding. Then what were the previous days? Lol.
I have been obsessed with taking pregnancy tests and I took one on June 8th, 9th, and this morning. All three were negative (and these were with an FRER, because like I said, I am obsessed). My period is not “due” until tomorrow according to the app (which is not always accurate). Symptoms I have been feeling are lost of appetite, fatigue, moodiness, etc. But these are all really normal for me too.
What should I do? When should I call it a loss and accept that it was AF and it came 4 days early? I also took my temp since yesterday and it is low (97s) and I heard that when you’re pregnant, it’s usually in the 98s?
