Ok - here goes, forgive me, as you all know, I'm a newbie to pregnancy!
I read this on another website:
"Your baby has found its home — your uterus. Once there, it burrows into your uterine lining and implants — making that unbreakable connection to you that'll last the next eight months (and a lifetime after that). You might also experience implantation bleeding, a common (and harmless) light pink, red, or brown spotting that can occur when the egg settles into your uterus. Once firmly in place, the ball of cells undergoes the great divide — splitting into two groups and making you 4 weeks pregnant. Half (now called the embryo) will become your son or daughter while the other half becomes the placenta — the lifeline that channels nutrients to your baby and carries waste away. "
I will be 4 weeks tomorrow (based on LMP) but had IB on Thurday last week! Does this mean I may be farther along that 4 weeks? Now I'm confused because my LMP was on July 10 (however, it was EXTREMELY light and only lasted 2 days.) I was also charting my O and according to the OPK strips I O'd on the 24th.
To be honest even though doctors go by LMP you can't really go by it. Ultrasound is going to be the best way to date it because no one really knows the moment conception happened or when implantation really occurred. I'd stick with that one for now until you have your first ultrasound.
i agree with that.. a lot of guess work goes into it. but once they can see the yolk sac on the ultra sound they can measure and get a much better idea. I know none of this will make the jitters of the light bleeding you had but im going thru the same type of thing with having to wait until an ultrasound can tell me more. good luck!!
It wasn't even bleeding. It was weird ... it was just little red tiny dots (like smaller than a pin head) on the toilet paper last Thursday. I had taken a test Thursday morning and got a BFN ... got a faint BFP on Friday and the lines have gotten darker since then!!
