I have an 18 month old dd and my period showed up about 13months PP. I have been totally irregular since then. They sometimes come 2-3 weeks apart and then occasionally will wait the normal 4 weeks. Well my last "period" I had brownish spotting when I wiped for about a week and half before the actual normal red period bleeding started. And it got really heavy the first 3 days and then tapered off to normal bleeding for about another week. To be honest, the brownish discharge when I wiped looked a lot like implantation that I had with DD (and with DD IB lasted several days). I stopped bfing in mid January. I asked the moms in my PR and many asked if I could be pregnant as it sounded like implantation bleeding. But, then what about the normal period bleeding after a week and half of TP spotting? We are NOT TTC and I'm still on the mini pill but anything can happen. About a week before and while brownish spotting I was always need to pee like every hour (just like when 1st pg with Kynslee). The other night DH and I had intercourse and it hurt at the beginning Sex has never really hurt for me. And before DH got into bed I noticed that I was more open down there? That was about 3 weeks after the more period like bleeding. And, since then I've had faint cramps Do any of you ladies have any of these symptoms and if so - what do they usually mean? Could I have had a chemical pregnancy or early miscarriage and that was what my body was trying to do and that's why I have cramps now? I'm confused!!
I don't really have any advice other than if it'a implantation spotting you should e able to get a positive test 3-4 days later. I have a mini pill baby. It becomes much less effective once your baby is eating solids which I assume yours is. I had cramping early on in all 3 of my pregnancies and thought for sure my period would come any day. As for the other symptoms you described the only one I can really comment on is the having to pee often, with this pregnancy that started for me around 5 weeks where with both of my boys it started around 7-8 weeks. I would say take a test if it's been a few days since the spotting. If it's negative I'd wait a few days to a week and see if you get your period and if not then I'd test again. Good luck and keep us updated!

The thing that seemed really strange to me is the heavy bleeding after the spotting? I didn't have any heavy bleeding with Kynslee. I did have to pee often very early on with Kynslee (like it was one of my symptoms before I got a positive).
Yes, Kynslee has been eating solids a for a while now. I also stopped bfing in mid January.
