Just wondering...*IB mentioned*

Just curious if based on the following information if what I have experienced is IB or not..Thanks to all for looking!

LMP: 08/28/2011 (Cycles are 33-36 days/ O'ing 14 days before next period or around cd 20-22)

ON 09/16/11: had teeny tiny red spot of blood on underwear--this with extemely sensitive breasts and nipples; increase in sexual desire although the boobs were hurting to much to be touched

BD'ed: 09/17/2011 (Late night)

HPT taken on 09/26-BFN; HPT taken at Clinic on 09/28-BFN; HPT taken on 09/30-maybe I see a line???? FRER

Spotting a couple of times on 09/29-10/3 (mostly pink/brown) except for 10/01 and 10/02 (both days one instance of a red blotch on tp this preceeded by 3 drops of blood (donut looking and mucous with streaks of blood in it on 09/30) Wore a pad all of these days--nothing on pad except some small brown spots. 10/04--spotting completely ceases in the afternoon-notice some yellow cm on tp. 10/5-Nothing

Cramping off and on very lightly--nothing AF like for me. Pressure feeling on 09/29 and 09/30 and intermittinly over the last couple of days but not like it was those 2 days--not painful at all--just felt like some pushing on my uterus around where my c/s scars are.

I hate to spend money I do not have to get more bfn's...Anybody else gone through this or know of someone who has??? If it wasn't IB--what was the said cause to be?

I have been extremely moody the last week or so, breasts don't hurt as they did when possible O' may have occurred--appetite is hit and miss; fatigued but can't seem to get to sleep at night and when I do-I have woken up the past two nights at 3 am to use the bathroom..

Thanks A Lot, Steph

If you had a BFP on 9/30, then the bleeding you had 9/29 - 10/3 wouldn't have been implantation bleeding because your body does not make the HCG necessary for a positive pregnancy test until after implantation has occurred. From what you said about your cycles, it sounds like that is the time your period would have been due. So, if you really feel like it wasn't a normal period for you, test again. As far as what would cause your period to be abnormal for you, it could be a number of things, ranging from stress to hormonal fluctuations. Since you already think you saw a positive result though, it should definitely be positive now if you test again. If it's negative, wait a month and see what happens with your cycle this month.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!!

Thanks a bunch for your reply... Seems today I had a couple of "hard" cramps and some very dark red bleeding. I haven't bled a whole lot today and other than this morning-no more cramping. I did take a couple of more hpts (Dollar General-1.00 tests) and both times the space that should show for a BFP looks like an evap line-it's thick like a bfp would be but no color except on the ends of the "test" line on both. I am chalking it up to either faulty tests as I have never had any kind of evap line on them before or just plain and simple BFN's (I guess either way--they are BFN's...) I am ok with that and will just have to wait it out and see what becomes of it. My dh keeps telling me not to worry because I did the same thing when I was pregnant with our dd. *That does not put my mind at ease-but he's a man and doesn't understand that comments like that only make me wonder more*...

Thanks again, I will keep ya' updated if anything "new" should happen..

Sorry about the BFNs. Are you guys trying to have another child? Have you checked out the TTC boards here on iVillage? I hope you get that BFP soon!
