16 dpo, pinking brown spotting

I'm ttc first child. AF was supposed to start Monday 2/25. Had bad cramping and sore bb's but AF did not show on Monday. Tuesday (15 dpo) woke up with light brown discharge. Ended by the afternoon. Took HPT = NEG. Twinges in stomach overnight. This morning (16 dpo) no spotting, just twinges. About 12 pm had pinkish/brown spotting on TP. Is this sign of period coming, or could I still be pregnant? Anyone else have similar and then turn out to be pregnant? I had a neg HPT yesterday...should I give up? Thanks.

Never give up :)

If you started any fertility drugs, these can change the length of your cycle, so you need to keep that in mind. If nothing else happens, I would take another test in a day or two and if still nothing, call your doctor to get bloodwork done.  Sometimes, on the drugs, I would get the same thing (spotting a couple days before AF showed) I don't know why.  

I hope you get your BFP!  SSBD and good luck!

Oh thats sounds promising and i would definatly not give up. I didn't get a positive while i was 4 days late. Are you usually regular with your periods. Sometimes it takes a while to get a positive result it depends how strong your HCG levels are. xx Keep me updated and i would test again in a few days. xxx

I hate to say this to you but prepare yourself if the AF coming.  I am sure  AF will come either tonight or tomorrow.  Be strong and try for next cycle.  

My AF came on Monday 2/25 which suppose not to show up until this thursday 2/28.  On Sat 12DPO i have brownish spot.  I thought for myself it's implantation bleeding because it's on 12DPO.  have some thought i could be pregnant.  On sunday 13DPO i had brownish/reddish spot.  not alot, but just barely enough to touch the pad.  I surely ok with that.  On monday 14DPO whatever inside of me came out alot (sorry tmi).  I knew then it's AF.  it's got heavier and heavier next day until today is my CD3 and it's getting light.  

I know it's so hard to accept af is coming.  If you are in 14DPO or 15DPO and have neg on pregnancy test, start plan for next cycle.

I am not trying to be mean here.  I was disappointed when af show up on monday.  i am still feeling down since i have so much positive signs last cycle.  but i tried to pull myself out and said, "what's the heck, try next month then.'  

I hope you get your BFP.  Even though i said this, but in my heart i still hoping that i am wrong so you can have BFP.  Take care and good luck to you.

something similar happened to me this month as well.....14dpo nothing but cramps one spot, 15dpo another brownish spot again like the size of a dime then nothing for the rest of the night. 16dpo horrible cramps at 5am still no flow, then today at noon the river started flowin. AF shows her ugly face again. I took 3 hpt's as well from 12dpo all negative. Such a disappointment.

i also had to wonder since my periods are very regular if this month in my excitement and anticipation if I prolonged the wait. I've heard of females getting stressed and pushing their periods off a day or so in hopes of pregnancy.

Anyways I feel your pain, good luck next month sweetie, sending baby dust your way:)

yeah. im not sure what's going on. it's 5:45 pm and still no AF. no more spotting. but still have twinges. took HPT about 5 min ago, negative. ive given in to the fact that im not pregnant this month, but on that note, i just want stupid AF to come so I can push this aside and get ready for next cycle. i was really excited to be late - it all seemed promising - but the neg HPTs are pretty clear. I guess i just have that small hope that im one of those people who needs to test a week after AF expected for a positive test. who knows. =/

AF will visit you soon.  I noticed this.  All my other cycles I stressed out and my mind never stop thinking about TTC.  during those cycles, my afs were irregular.  sometimes af visit on CD35, other time afs visited me on cd40.  last cycle i took off medicine and meditate myself and try not to think about TTC or anything at all..  AF visited me on CD28.  

I think jenneyfer976 is right.  when we are stress out, our cycle push off and give us irregular af.  

I started using med this cycle.  yesterday i stared clomid 150mg along with Repronex injection.  It's sting when the nurse inject that med.  

Take care

Just a quick note - your period is determined by your luteal phase and when you ovulate.  So, it has already been 'pre-determined' when your period will show weeks ahead of time - stress won't delay your period, after you have ovulated.  It's just an old wives tale!

:)  Good luck to you and hope next month is your BFP!!!
