Depends on where you are in your cycle; if you’re 3-5 DPO (or 5-7 days before your normal period start), then could be implantation bleeding.  However if you’re closer to your normal period start time, likely spotting/start of period.

Good luck!

Like I always said when I was in the TTC phase, “Fingers crossed, legs open!”  Fingers crossed for you for next month 🙂

I think it depends on where you are in your cycle, but it can vary greatly. For example, I got my bfp at 11 dpo and then had implantation spotting after that, at 12-13dpo. It was very very light, and brown. I don’t usually spot before my period at all, but if I do it’s not brown… that would only be after my period. I think it depends on what is normal for you, as well as where you are in your cycle. Good luck!

Hey there! im currently ending my 2nd pregnancy (4 more weeks!) and I had implantation bleeding this time. With ym first I didnt. I woke up feeling.. well wet (ew sorry) and went pee. I noticed a small dime sized spot of discharge that was brownish. I figured I was getting my period and put a tampon in. 2 hours later i took it out and nothing. it was dry (ouchhhhhh) and had nothing on it.

that evening another spot. Then that was it.

Turns out I had a low placenta which would explain why I experience spotting at first. Everything fixed its self but thats how I knew it was implantation.
