IB?

DH and I had our first cycle of actively TTC in my current cycle. I am at CD 24. Late Saturday evening, I had a slight pink show when I went to the restroom. Yesterday (CD 23) and today, I am still having very light brownish spotting. Minor cramping off and on, but nothing that is concerning and definitely nothing like my typical AF. My cycle days over the past four cycles have averaged to 26 days, so I'm guessing that my cycle is about 26-28 days. I am expecting AF by Friday.

Could my spotting be IB? I took a HPT and had a negative answer, but I think it's still too soon to test. I've also had slight sensitivity in my chest off and on for a few days and last night, I was nauseous for a bit, but I contributed that to a major headache I was dealing with. I promised DH I wouldn't test again until Friday or Saturday morning.

Thoughts?

It could have been IB or just some spotting since you are almost due for AF. If it was IB, then it would've most likely been too early for a positive on a HPT since the HCG doesn't start increasing until after implantation occurs. I'd definitely say test again this weekend if AF doesn't show. Good luck!

I think I'm just hypersensitive. I plan to test next weekend sometime. This cycle was just weird, but it's only my second off of BC, so it's bound to have its ups and downs. Thanks for the insight.

Coming off BC could definitely be part of it as well. I hope your cycles get straightened out soon so you can have a better idea of what's going on.
