I took my first positive pregnancy test a week ago today. I take a new test every 2-3 days because the original lines were so pale, barely even visible and the lines have been progressively getting darker as well as another very dark like today.
I’m still waiting for my ob appointment and with an irregular schedule it’s difficult to tell how far along I am but 10 days ago I had a negative pregnancy test. I had some strong cramps last Wednesday as well as some pretty extreme bloating, both of which have since gone away.
Over the past 24 hours I have had some light bleeding (not enough to show on a panty liner but enough to show after using the bathroom) so of course I’m stressing.
I’m hoping for some reassuring words from women who have had bleeding during their first trimester and have gone on with successful pregnancies.
Or, maybe this is how miscarriages normally start? There is so much conflicting information, I don’t know what to think.
