Prettysmile40 :  It sounds like you are spotting – and after reading your other post – that it has been happening for a few days, which is completely normal prior to CD1. It happens because your hormone levels start to crash prior to AF, a drop in progesterone and estrogen will trigger your period. If you tested today with BFN, I suspect it is not due to implantation and that AF will arrive soon. (Although without tracking this month, you can’t be sure when to accurately expect AF). Even if it isn’t the norm for you, it’s possible that your cycles are changing due to factors such as: not being on a medicated/FET cycle, regulating after mc, age, etc. Best of luck to you with your upcoming FET.

Prettysmile40 :  Sure thing. I know it is different for everyone, but here is my experience with IB: I’ve been pregnant 3 times – I had implantation bleeding with 2 that unfortunately ended in MC. The first one, I had brown spotting later in the same day I got my first BFP, until the pregnancy ended shortly after with heavy clotting and bleeding. The second, I got a BFP and then implantation bleeding (dark brown) about 5 days later. It stopped for a few days, prior to my betas dropping and having then bright red bleeding. With my current pregnancy, I had very heavy bright red bleeding around 5.5 weeks – 8 weeks, caused by a SCH. No implantation bleeding…but still bleeding.

Either way, I always got a positive test prior to any bleeding – because the embryo will produce hormones immediately upon implantation, and it generally takes a bit of time for blood to travel down/out the cervix before you see it (which is also why it is brown).

Prettysmile40 :  Subchorionic Hematoma. It’s basically pooling of blood that collects in your uterine lining as the embryo implants and placenta forms. It can either be reabsorbed by your uterus or come out in the form of bleeding. They are fairly common with ivf pregnancies but can also happen in a non-medicate one.
