Sounds like implantation bleeding to me

If you’re still getting dark tests, I don’t think you’re having a CP. My tests became much lighter before I started bleeding. Call your doctor and see if you can get some betas done.

Also, I wouldn’t call that implantation bleeding, because you already were getting positives before you bled, meaning you already implanted.

Lots of women bleed in early pregnancy and go on to have healthy babies.

I had bleeding all throughout my pregnancy and our daughter is 8 months old now. I’ve been told it’s very normal (if very, very scary).

I had some bleeding in my last pregnancy, and my doctor said some women get some sort of a period the entire pregnancy! I hope that’s what it is and everything is okay. Can you get a blood draw and have them check again to see if the hcg is rising?

Call your doctor and have them test your HCG.

Do you know your blood type? If you are Rh- you should have a rhogam shot regardless.

kaligirl1102 :  I would call your doctor and have your hcg tested. It could be a CP, but bleeding during pregnancy can also be completely normal. The only way to know for sure is to get your blood tested to see if your hcg levels are rising or not! 

I’ve had several CPs and for one for one of them I started bleeding but my tests kept getting darker every day while I was bleeding. The tests got darker for maybe 4 days before they started getting lighter. That being said, they never got very dark to begin with! 


Fingers crossed it’s nothing serious ♥ Sorry to hear about your husband, but I’m glad to hear he will be able to have a full recovery!

kaligirl1102 :  I agree with the PP – the only way to know what is going on is to have repeat HCG draws until you get to the point where you can get an ultrasound. That being said, your tests don’t sound like they are in keeping with a typical chemical pregnancy (I obsessively searched for progression test images and looked at YouTube for stories about CPs when I had one in December and the vast majority of them followed the same pattern as mine – several days of faint lines or lines getting fainter over the course of a few days before AF showed up).
