    Default Please help! Spotting five days before AF but lasting three days so far!

    Hi ladies, as the title suggests I've been spotting for three days now, it's brown no red blood, but I need your help! AF is due in four days, I've been getting cramps (very light) and everytime I go to the toilet there is always spotting there
    I know I shoul go to my doctor but I cannot get an appointment tomorrow or over the weekend! What should undo and what's going on??

    Could be implantation.

    Have you tested with a hpt?

    It sounds like implantation. I think it takes a few days (3-5?) after implantation for your hcg to be high enough for the test to detect. How many dpo are you? Maybe you just tested too early. Fx you get your BFP!

    I get brown mucous spotting before each period normally and I also got it with my last preg (ended in misc) and the preg I just found out about.

    I always tested the day or two after it became a lot less/went away. The months that I wasn't preg it would build up until a period came.

    Hope that helps

    Hi OP, any progression? I have had strange spotting before periods which has never happened before to me - acupuncture has really settled it down, but I'm still having a few issues. I got my period on Sunday... But when I got up thismornig it was gone again and I've had nothing at all today :-S

    Really not sure what's going on! It's just bizarre to me that I never had these issues until now - just when I want to TTC!! Why?!!

    Hi there, yes I'm the exact same! This is only my first month TTC so just like you I have no idea about anything..
    When you got your period did you have cramping? I got mine Sunday early morning with the worst cramps and excessive bleeding.... Now it's still going but not as many clots .. I had a very faint BFP Sunday but haven't tested again... Hopefully next month will be the month

    I had similar cramps to what I usually get... But the 'real' period just didn't happen. Nothing all day today... Less than 24 hours of brown discharge, I can't really consider that a real period, can I? I'm temping and my temperatures are as they should be when I have my period (dropped on the day my period was meant to start and have stayed consistently low like they did during my period last cycle)


    Arrrgh! Everywhere I look I see pregnant women!!
