I was a former butterfly,with tons of ips, then came AF. now cd4, felt very dizzy, wierd, so I pos. IMMEDIATELY the 2nd line came up. It's faint, but there. Strange that my temp never fell below cover, even when AF started. Today it went up .2. I don't know what to think. AF started strange, just brown spotting (which is way wierd for me) then moderate red bleeding for 2 days. Now brown spotting again. I am scared because I have had 4 m/c. Is this a chemical pg? Also, I have started my clomid 150 mg for the cycle, starting yesterday. I also was not taking my progesterone!This is so scary! Please talk me girls!

Oh, Cindy! You poor thing! First, let me say CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Second, please call your doctor ASAP tomorrow and let him know about the test and starting the clomid. This has happened on the clomid board and everything turned out fine with the baby. I'm so sorry for your past losses. The only thing I can offer is that perhaps you lost a twin. Vanishing Twin Syndrome is increasing in diagnosis due to how many women, like us, know so much more about our cycles and are aware of pregnancy much earlier than in the past. Praying for your little one - perhaps you will be able to get a hCG quant test and a progesterone draw tomorrow. Good luck!

Eone, edd twins 11/14

Eone, thank you for writing back. You know, I haven't even let myself get a little excited, but after your post I am a little! I'm just so afraid of the bleeding! Congrats on your double blessing! I will call my dr first thing tomorrow to get labs drawn. Thanks again!

Hi Cindy,


I know what you are going through and it is very scarey. I never took clomid, but from what I have read the ladies saying it is nothing to worry about and you should definitly not let yourself stress too much until you confirm everything with your doc. Need to be calm for that little eggie's sake. When I was a little less than a month preg. with my daughter I had bleeding on Halloween, red the same as the beginning of any AF cycle. I went to the hospital assuming the worst, crying, i was so desperate. So all the doctors did was offer to do an internal exam and they confirmed for me that my cervix was closed and that the baby would be fine..To this day I still have no idea what that bleeding was caused by and she is almost 5!!:) They say bleeding can be caused by stress, strenuous work/excercise and some time even BD'ing.

I wish you luck in abundance and hope everything works out for you:)

Hi Cindy, I just tested +++ myself and I have had bleeding that started on Wednesday and continued through yesterday. It has been like a very very very light period and the blood has been bright red. It seems to cease at night and when I stay off of my feet. I atoo am concerned about the bleeding. I plan on going in on Monday to get a beta HCG done to start checking my levels.

Your temps look good. Mine have really gone up and stayed up..that is what made me think I was pregnant.

Keep us informed and Oh CONGRATS and I hope you have a H&H 9 months.

i have the same thing..faint + on preg test and then AF started... normal flow, and i even had cramping ( maybe m/c?) or chemical preg? i am thinking of retesting again

has anyone ever had AF w/ cramps and still been pregnant? cramps were normal, my cramps are usually pretty light anyways

my only symptom of preg is those small white pimples u get on your areolas ( do these show up w.out preg?)
