Hey ladies, I know I said I got AF the other day, but now Im not so sure. I woke up and had a sudden "leak" of red blood on the day I started but that was pretty much it. I am on day "3" of this and have only had faint pink discharge since then. Is this spotting or a period??? I am so confused. I have this fairly sticky/stretchy discharge that's only pink tinged. I POAS last week and it was clearly negative. We've been dtd much more often then usual but pulling out or using a condom. I don't think I'm pg? But if I am it's an increddddibly slim chance. I would appreciate any thoughts!!

Oh wow, well i don't have any experience with this so i really don't know what to say but do you have another test? Since you said you POAS last week i'd do it again if you have another. I know you're saying it's a slim chance but if it was me personally i'd probably POAS again. Good luck!!!

Is this "period" right on time? Or are you bleeding earlier than usual? I had implantation bleeding with my 2nd baby and had light pink/then brown spotting one week before AF was due. It certainly doesn't sound like a regular period.

It could be that your body has been trying to ovulate/be fertile for a while. The lining of the uterus will build up and build up and build up in hopes of having an implanting eggie but there's no egg. Eventually the lining will be so built up that it has to shed at least a little, so you will bleed and in a sense have a period. But it's not technically a period if you didn't ovulate. So you could be having anovulatory bleeding or it could just be a really funky first period. If it's not a period, your body is definitely gearing up for one! You may have some more weird bleeding and then finally ovulate and have a real period. Or you could have ovulated and your lining may have been thin (hence the light bleeding) because your hormones aren't back to normal yet. I hope that made sense?? Lol

ETA: Shelley, this would be her first PP period.

I have had several "leaks" this go round. I will think that it is AF and the only spot for a few days. It sounds like Jo is right.

I think Jo gave some good explanation on this. I chart so here is what happened to me.

My first "period" was very light and I'm pretty sure it was an annovoluntary "warning" period. The period following that was very very heavy and I definitely ovulated, although it was still a weak one. My 3rd period, which is ending now, is finally more normalized but I had a very clear and strong ovulation. So your body is likely just gearing up to get back to ovulating regularly. Either way, take this as a sign that you are fertile and take precautions if necessary.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the help I took an OPK test today just to see if I got anything and I got a very faint line, so I think yall are probably right. I am definitely producing LH... when i took a series of OPKs a couple of months ago, they were as blank (in the test area) as can be. Definitely gonna keep charting on my phone app....

Gooooooood luck!!

My first period was last month and it was normal I'd say. I didn't have ANYYYYY cramps whatsoever so I had NO idea it was going to show up EXCEPT that I felt myself ovulate 2 weeks earlier. LOL. I hope next month goes as well. I was a super crampy mess after having DS1.
