    Default Implantation bleeding - how heavy?

    Hi everyone,

    Another hubber under cover here

    Im just wondering, for those of you who experienced implantation bleeding, how heavy it was?

    We were TTC this month and on monday i had the start of what i thought was my period, with normal flow and cramping, it lasted just three days and never really got heavy like normal, but was still bright red. So i just assumed it was my period.

    Anyhoo, i had a test sitting in my cupboard and since we were going to start TTC again until mid next year i thought i'd just get rid of it, i didnt want it sitting there staring at me for the next few months, mocking me .

    The test came up with a BFP!!

    I couldnt believe it really, since it was a forelife test and i have heard that they are known for giving false positives, so i went and bought a first response and it came up BFP straight away!

    I know i should be excited, and i am, i guess i just cant believe it since i had that big bleed. When i was pregnant with my son i never had anything like that at all so im just a little worried, not sure if i should get excited or not i guess.

    Has anyone else had anything similar to this?

    Was it a strong bfp? I'd say that a trip to docs for confirmation and congratulations are in order

    Mine was just a little brown discharge a few times when I wiped for the one day, the first time I have had it myself so I thought I was out!

    Default Implantation bleeding - how heavy?

    I had very red blood for 3 days too and it was quite heavy like a normal period aswell so I thought it was just a weird short period but with the time frame and the description I gave my doctor she thinks it was an implantation bleed! I'd be making an appointment to confirm! Good luck!!
