I had all I could handle last night and broke down in tears.
The pups were off the wall- Copper had peed in the house twice - and I spilled my entire plate of dinner on my way up the stairs. Went downstairs to grab some papertowel and stopped in the bathroom before I went back up......and I started spotting. I broke down bawling. I felt like everything was just crapping on me last night and there was nothing I could do about it!
I called DH crying (he's out of town working for the week) and vented to him. He was super sweet and supportive, but its not the same as having him right there next to you to hug you and hold you. He hopefully only has another 2-3 weeks of work and he will be laid off for the winter. Then we will have 4-5 months of baby making while he's home. No more worrying about missed days while he's away. After we got off the phone I cried and my puppies snuggled me and I dozed off for a bit.
Now - for the goofy part. Bare with me, my mind starts going and I have to think of ALL possibilities.
Last cycle, I started spotting just like this on CD32, but I was 12DPO. The spotting continued for 2 days before it picked up into AF. It was a strange AF because in total only lasted 5 days and was never heavy at all. I am counting 5 days including the 2 days of spotting.
I spotted lightly last night, a couple drops of very light light pink and some brown. That was it, nothing else all night. This morning just a couple drops of light light pink after I wiped. Today is CD34? 11DPO? so I started the spotting on CD33 but only 10DPO. (Not going to call this CD1 yet). So I'm close to being "on time" for AF but 2 days earlier on DPO?
So here's where my brain starts going.......... if I was only 10DPO last night, IB is still possible. They say most common day for IB to occur is 9DPO, and still fairly common at 10DPO. If this were IB, I wouldn't get a positive on a test for another couple days anyways. Which would explain the negative tests.
So.........I told myself I have to just wait. No testing- unless this spotting all together quits or stays this light with no bright red. Hurry up & Wait.
Any advice or encouragement is appreciated. And insight on IB if anyone has had it! I know Elle has had it twice at 7DPO?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

I hate nights like that. It really is so hard to say if it IB or not - just another cruel way preg and AF symptoms are similar. . . Yup!! Both times I had IB it was at 7DPO and the spotting continued until about 12 or 14 DPO but I have certainly heard of it at 10DPO before. For me it was very light pink and then brown. I am keeping my Fx for you Kel!!!! I am still hopeful for you!
Oh honey I wish I could give you a great big hug! I already told you what happened with Riley but jeez! I bawled like a big baby! With my chemical I had IB at about 11DPO. Same thing as Elle, it was a light light pink then turned to brown. But I have also had that with AF. I hope this is it for you doll! Fingers crossed!
I woke up at 3 AM with a backache and cramps, so I knew as soon as I got up she would be here. Here we go again, CD1.
I've come to the conclusion that I think WAY too much into everything and I just need to wait things out. This cycle I need to do better about just letting things happen and tame the POAS addiction. Sigh.
