I am 9 dpo and since about four months ago my 28 day cycle turned 30 to 31 days. I am due for AF (period) on this thursday-today is sunday. Today I woke up and took my temp. It spiked up to notches. Before bathing I went to check my cervix which was completely out of reach and found blood instead. Not heavy but definitely red. I put on a pad but it's been a couple hours and not drenched. The first day of my AF is ALWAYS heavy without question and with a lot of cramps. I have nothing but that blood. NO pain.
I'm confused because I am 9 dpo and it's way too early to start my AF. I'm hoping it's IB. Has anyone else had red IB this early and had a BFP? I only want those who have either had red bleeding (not heavy or heavy) or known of someone who had this to answer. I say this because people will post they don't know. I want people that DO know. Thank you.
I had one episode of red spotting with my last two pregnancies. One was at 9 dpo, one at 8. The first time lasted longer than the second, which was only once when I wiped. I was taking low dose aspirin which may have contributed to the bleeding?
Your timing is right- fingers crossed! BTW I got a BFP two mornings later with a very sensitive test, but I almost needed superhero vision to see it ;-)
Chinesebones, I have been taking low dose aspirin also. I wondered if that had anything to do with it. This is my first month using that.
I never have mid cycle bleeding like that unless it's tiny spotting the night before my period. Well my fingers are crossed.
I actually didn't even try to conceive this month. I was so worn out from the past months from hoping. I was giving my brain a break this month so to speak.
By the tme last night came it had turned brown and then stopped. Today nothing just residual when I wipe and I'm sure when I get out of the bathtub that will be gone too. Wow I'm trying not to be excited but it's hard not to you know? Thanks again.
