Period was a week early. Implantation? Pregnant?

So my husband and I are TTC. We definitely had sex during the time I was ovulating. I wasn't due for my period until this Saturday but last Thursday I started having some light, brownish spotting. This went on until about Saturday when it turned red. I've been bleeding since then, but no cramps. Just a mild backache and headache sometimes. And it's definitely been lighter than a normal period. Usually my period will start full on, not with spotting for 2 days. My breasts are not tender or anything, there's been a few days I've been queasy and I am super tired all the time!



I'm pretty sure the same thing happened with my son, but I honestly don't know what to think? Could I be pregnant? Has this happened to anyone else? I have heard of cases where implantation bleeding can range from light spotting to what seems like a normal period. And I know some women have what they think are periods months into their pregnancy. Just wanted some insight before I "waste" a test on a hunch. Thanks!

Hi, so what were the results?
I'm going through similar things. My period came 5 days early, and it wasn't as heavy as normal. Then I feel like vomitting every time my head hurts. It's been hurting for 3 days now.

This is just really odd for me b/c my cycles are always on time. Certainly not a week early. I am def keeping track of when I get them too. The bleeding abruptly stopped yesterday. Usually it would taper off into light spotting.

I've noticed I still have the fatigue and I am now getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. I know your body can do some wacky things so I'm just trying to stay calm and wait. I think it would be too early to get a positive on a HPT. But maybe this weekend when my period was actually due, I should try testing?

well thats how with my 2nd child. I was bleeding, but it wasnt heavy, it would come for a day, then go back up for like 3 days then come back down.. so i went to the hospital and the doctor told me that i was pregnant, and i said how is that possible when im still having a period. he said most women have periods all year round.

If it's red bleeding, I'm guessing you're not pregnant, but the only way to know for sure is to take a test.

it could be - i had red bleeding off and on for the first 3 months. i had miscarried before so it worried me but the dr kept assuring me it was quite common. i'd wait a couple days and take the test if it's still going on and you're still feeling like that

That's what I hear but it's so hard playing the waiting game and getting your hopes up! This month definitely feels different though.

Women usually have pretty good instincts :)) I kinda had a "hunch" with both of mine.
