    Default Positive Pregnancy Tests and Bleeding

    Hi,
    Yesterday 5 days before my period is due, I had what I thought was implantation Bleeding, as it was light, brown, dark red and for 2 hours.

    Today I took 2 pregnant tests, both positive, but in the evening while taking the test I noticed bright red blood when I wiped. But now no blood.

    Any experts can read this? Pregnant? Chemical pregnancy?

    I am 43, have a 3 year old.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm no expert by a long stretch but I know for sure that it is VERY common to have bleeding in pregnancy, and it's not necessarily always a bad sign.

    I am 42, pregnant with my first, and had a significant bleed just over 4 weeks. And I'm currently almost 23 weeks along!


    ETA: Many years ago my Mother fell pregnant naturally at 44. She bled several times during her pregnancy, yet my sister was born perfectly healthy. My best friend is also 42 years old and is pregnant with her first, and she's bled several times so far to the point of soaking through her pads. She's still 15 weeks along and bub is doing fine, so there IS hope!

    Wow. Thanks for the reply Blossom.
    My daughter finished breastfeeding just before she was 3, so I waited a few months for my cycle to go back to normal, if I am pregnant, which I think we are, it is from 2 months of natural trying, same as my first child.

    No bleeding today, but nauseous and can't eat my favourite lunch, no appetite which is unusual.

    I had something just like that when I was about 5 weeks pregnant with my third.
    It turned out to be a hematoma where she had implanted.
    Since it's such early days for you it will be difficult to see much.
    Just keep a close check on how you're feeling because I did know of someone who had bleeding with positive tests and it was ectopic.
    Maybe you could go and get your hcg levels checked to start?

    Best of luck!
