Lurker- SO frustrated

Hello everyone. My name is Kelly and I've been lurking this month; but now I'm so frustrated that I need to post.

I'm CD28, 11DPO- BFN yesterday and this morning with FMU (used Answer early response).

Been having IPS - cramps since CD24, extreme fatigue, light nausea. I've been telling myself that it's still possible b/c AF is not due until Tuesday.

Well, today cramps are stronger and I'm SPOTTING! I think AF is HERE. AARRGGHH!!!

Has anyone had AF cramps with implantation spotting? When does implantation occur? Am I too far into my cycle to be implanting? Is the evil hag really here?

I"m really not sure about the spotting. I haven't really experienced it before, it depends on the person I think. However, it could definitely be implantation bleeding. Even if it isn't implantation bleeding, it seems like bleeding during the first trimester isn't uncommon, so while it may seem like a period, it might not be. I believe implantation bleeding can happen all the way up to 10DPO (usually between 6-10 days I think), however, I'm not a doctor, so it might be shorter or LONGER. Also, cramping is common during the first trimester as well, but I don't know what to tell you about the cramping with the bleeding. Try to wait it out and test again on tuesday if AF doesn't come. I wish you +++++ thoughts your way. Take care of yourself.
