On Saturday (3 days ago) I started getting faint lines on tests, by Sunday morning (2 days ago) the lines were DARK and I got a positive digital a few hours later. 20 hours later (yesterday morning) I started bleeding. It started as spotting and progressed to heavier 1st day like bleeding through yesterday afternoon into this morning. Around 11am this morning the bleeding stopped and now is a drop every few hours. I took another 2 tests tonight with urnine that was actually really diluted and only had been holding for an hour and a half (line and digital) and the digital immediately popped up pregnant and the line is just as dark if not darker than it was two mornings ago. My period was due tomorrow and from what I have read most chemical pregnancy bleeding comes a few days after missed period and lasts for a minimum of 4 days? I would be 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant today. Today was 16DPO meaning the bleeding would have started 15DPO. I am confused because I was literally seeing my lines get darker by the hour basically as the bleeding started and now they are still dark if not darker. Is this possible with a CP? My husband started chemo for testicular cancer yesterday (100% cure, but needs 2 months of chemo), hence why we tried this cycle due to 50/50 never getting fertility back and not being allowed to try for a year after chemo is over. It was a terrible day once I started bleeding. My mom is a doctor and she told me I am not/was not bleeding dangerous amounts and that being I am so early they would just tell me to finish bleeding and come back when it is all done for a check up. I am planning to test again Thursday morning and see what the tests say. Being Saturday night the digital said not pregnant I would assume Hcg would fall back down within a few days to those rates they were a mear 36 hours before bleeding? I hope things work out but I find peace knowing I am able to get pregnant with the sperm that is frozen at the sperm bank which honestly really was a concern after he had a testicle removed 6 weeks ago. I am also taking this as a sign for this to be time to care for my husband if it didn’t work out this time and we can try with the sperm bank in March when he is done. Any input on why I bled for only 24 hours and before my period was due?

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).
