Sounds like you’re pregnant. I’ve heard of many stories of women thinking they had their period, and ending up with a bfp.

Sounds a lot like implantation bleeding.

Up until day 7-10ish, the fertilized egg is floating around making its way into your uterus, where it implants into your uterine wall to start getting your nutrients right around the time you started to notice the bleeding. We just covered this in A&P lol so this is all very fresh in my head.

Lots of women have spotting they mistake for a period that turns out to be implant-related.

Sounds like implantation bleeding.  Happened to me around 9 DPO (estimate from ultrasound) and I thought it was my period.  It was my first month off BCP so it seemed just like a normal period to me.  More than spotting for sure- similar to light periods on BCP.  So I didn’t take a pregnancy test until I missed my next period.  So got the surprise at my first trimester screening/NT scan that I was 3.5 weeks farther along.

hoogirl05:  What your wrote was word-for-word exactly what I experienced with an ectopic pregnancy I had last fall.  BUT that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what’s happening with you.  I’ve heard plenty of stories of women bleeding for days, who went on to have a healthy pregnancy.  If the doctor’s concerned, hopefully they could get you in for an ultrasound before your trip.  I had one at 5w4d and they were able to see a small mass in my tube.

Usually the first period off isn’t a real period, it’s withdrawal bleeding. Hormonally different. Could be any number of things. I also bleed a few times throughout my pregnancy that was completely normal. In the scheme of things, ectopic pregnancies are pretty uncommon.

This happened to me too – I guess it was implantation bleeding.  All was fine with my pregnancy.

I had implantation bleeding, and mine was a tiny bit more than spotting, could have been mistaken for a light period.

hoogirl05:  I had this exact thing happen with my second. I found out randomly because my OPKs kept coming up positive, so someone suggested I do a pregnancy test and I did just to prove them wrong, hahaha. In my case it was a subchorionic hemmorage, but the pregnancy progressed just fine and I have a happy healthy 4 month old.

If it’s enough blood for a tampon, it probably isn’t implantation bleeding. Statistically it’s much more likely to be a subchorionic hemmorage than an ectopic pregnancy. SCs are a bit scary because they can result in pregnancy loss, but most don’t! I have known a lot of people that have had them, and none have lost the pregnancy. I hope everything works out well for you.

According to beta base, the median HCG for 4 weeks is 129, so I don’t know what planet that’s low!! Hope everything goes great with this pregnancy.

That is totally within the normal range. Now that I am reading this, I remember that my first ultrasound, which was around the 4 week mark, came back with a 2 mm potential pregnancy. They said it was an uncomfirmed pregnancy, a threatened miscarriage, and that I had about a 50 percent chance of of pregnancy continuing. I had betas every 3 days, an ultrasound every week, and by 6 weeks it was clear that I was a pregnancy with a subchorionic hemmorage. Over that time I obsessively tested with a FRER every day, and it did get darker. 

It was super tough to wait, and very confusing. Worse because I was a second time mom so I felt like I should know a bit more, hahaha. Anyway, hang in there. The sac is good, the fact that you just have blood tinged CM is good, an your beta is fine!

That’s actually a really high beta for 4 weeks! Maybe you are 4 weeks and a few days. I haven’t experienced bleeding in early pregnancy but I know someone going through something similar right now. Hoping your situation turns out positive! Keep us updated!
