Not all luteal phase spotting is implantation spotting. It sounds like yours was probably just regular old spotting. Most women don’t have any pregnancy symptoms until they’re five weeks pregnant, so if the symptoms you describe were pregnancy related, you’d have a positive test by now. False negatives are very, very rare.

FAisms:  unfortunately because of the timing I would think this is pre AF spotting. I had pretty much this last cycle for about 4-5 days before AF then AF Showed up full blast! I too was holding out hope it could be linked to implantation seemed it was just a funky cycle.

FAisms:  If you have had implantation bleeding for four days, you would be getting a positive test by now.  Tests pick up HCG around 2 days after implantation.  I agree with others that this is most likly PMS/ AF getting ready to come and the hormones that you get before your period can cause the exact same symptoms as early pregnancy.  As for the story about your Mother-In-Law, it sounds like she didn’t test and get negative pregnancy tests because she didn’t even think it was possible to get pregnant.  That is way different than someone testing and getting negatives way past possible implantation phase.

I have to agree with the others here, it sounds like pre AF symptoms to me 🙁 The time line you have there doesn’t really line up with IB, you wont have pregnancy symptoms before implantaion occurs, it’s impossible because you don’t start releasing the hormones until the egg attatches. I’m not saying that it’s not possible that you aren’t pregnant because you aren’t out until AF shows but it sounds to me like she is about to. Just my advice, if you don’t get your bfp this cycle you should really look into temping and opks, they are extremely helpful in taking the guess work out of everything. Then you know exactly what your timeline should be, because TTC can definitely take a toll on your cycle and wanting to be pregnant can play mean tricks on you. I have been at it for 15 months and I have many times felt like I was pregnant and ended up getting AF right on time or shortly after. Good luck!
