I also posted this on Am I Pregnant board.

AF is due today but two days ago, I started very light spotting in the morning (light pink color). Then it stopped by later afternoon. Then it started again yesterday and continues today. Again very little and light pink in color. I've never had spotting before. I also have had very mild, AF like cramps, on and off for the last two days. I keep waiting for AF to arrive but hoping she won't. Do you think this is a sign of pregnancy? I was on antibiotics a few weeks ago for a throat infection and wonder if that could have thrown my cycle off?

Hi. The most frustrating thing about TTC is that early PG symptoms and AF symptoms are so similar! I think it's a cruel joke of nature.

I don't remember any spotting with the PG's I had when I was younger. But with my last little boy, I had a bit of brownish discharge at 12 DPO, a day before AF was due. It wasn't even enough for a panty shield, then it stopped.

With my next PG, I had the same thing, same cycle day. (Sadly, I MC @ 8 weeks).

And then there are those months when I get some spotting maybe 4 days before AF is due, then it stops completely. I never knew what caused that. For me, my most telltale sign that it is AF coming and not PG is that I feel really mean mean and meaner (I get severe PMS).

I understand your frustration! I so hope it is implantation for you...as I said, from my own experience, it certainly can be. Keep us posted!

It could be a sign of pregnancy, then again, the antibiotics could have messed with you a little bit too. If AF is due today, you could POAS and you should get an accurate reading. If you're not charting, make sure you haven't mis-counted your days between cycles. Good Luck and KUP!!

I haven't been pg, so I'm not too sure of pg symptoms, but other ladies here have had implantation bleeding. Hopefully that is what this is for you. Are you charting your cycle? Do you know how many days you are past your ovulation? Good luck & keep us updated!!!!

I don't know exactly how many dpo I am but when I had my first child, I was temping checking my cm and seemed to O around day 14-16. I check my CM and so I think I probably O'd around the same cycle day. Therefore I would be 13-15 dpo. Still no sign of AF but some very mild crampy feelings this morning.

I had loads of cramping starting from early on with my last PG. I hope this is it for you!

I plan to test Thursday or Friday. AF has been as many as 5 days late on occasion so I figure I will wait rather than possibly waste a pregnancy test. I sort of have a feeling that I am pregnant but at the same time, don't want to get my hopes up.

I can understand that. Those BFNs are so depressing to see. I hope this is it for you, and in the meantime I hope you stick around. We're a small but growing everyday group of wonderful ladies here.
