It COULD be implantation bleeding. My last pregnancy i had implantation bleeding the day before my period was due and I thought "oh here's my period starting". i was actually pregnant. It depends what brand of HPT you used that would tell you if you are pregnant or not yet. Some of them pick up as little as 25 units of HCG so you could be early on and don't have enough for an HPT to pick it up yet. One of Andrea's postings a while back has the different HPT's and how much HCG they pick up. you could get one of the more sensitive brands and try again. if you use your first morning urine you will have more concentration in it if you are pregnant...but i've also just waited 4 hours w/out going to the bathroom and picked up a positive on an HPT before w/out using first morning. I also don't drink a lot of water (i should lol) but anyhow! Good luck to you! =)
I am due on the 25th too. I am praying so hard it does not come.
Good luck to you,
I didn't experience implantation bleeding, but I did wait until after my period was due to take a HPT. I know that it's hard to wait, but if you can make it, wait until at least 3 days after you were supposed to get your period. I used First Repsonse and EPT which are supposedly the best tests for early detection. Good luck!!!
Hi Maggie. Af was due yesterday for me (never late). Three days ago I tested clear blue easy and all four(yes, I know!!!lol) had faint blue line. Tested with others and they were neg. I'm going crazy. Tested this morning 8/25 w/another brand - neg :( Went to Wal-mart for Equate (recommended), am going to test in hour. If neg, going for serum tommorrow. Only symps I have are swollen breasts, witchiness, sensitive to odors and unsatisfied cravings. Wish I had a little cramp or some bleeding, but nothing. No one knows what I'm going through except you guys. DH hasn't a clue, thinks I'm Pmsing
Good luck to you Maggie, it does sound like implantation!! :) and Thanks for listening.
Oh yeah, in case I haven't made myself clear, I soooo want to be pregnant!
Thank everyone for your advice. I really appreciate your support. Like all of you, this is all that has been on my mind this weekend. I discuss everything with my husband, however, there is only so much that he can handle listening too (I am sure you guys know what I mean!). He is a man...that should be all I have to say!
Anyways, I am bleeding even more today. I am really getting concerned because it is not anything like my AF. I still have not filled a pad, however, I am bleeding a lot when I go to the bathroom. I called my DR. today, and they are going to try and fit me in to come it today for a pregnancy test and to see what it going on. Has anyone experienced this?? When I go to the bathroom, it is a lot of blood that comes out...but not on my pad throughout the day...and it looks like my period. I guess I should just assume that it is my AF I guess and just stop hoping this month.
