Question: Implantation bleeding and headaches???


 Wuppy - Mon Sep 26, 2005 12:37 pm

Me and my husband only started trying to get pregnant the week of September 1st. It is now the last week of September and I have constant headaches and light bleeding. Can I be pregnant or are these just signs of PMS??? Is it too early to test? I tested two weeks ago twice and they both came out negative so I don't know if I tested too soon or if I'm just not pregnant... Am I getting my hopes up for nothing and creating false symptoms with the hopes of being pregnant? Also, I've been pregnant twice already and with both I got horribly nauseous and barfed all the time. Is it possible for me to be pregnant and not nauseous at all? Sorry so many questions. I'm really going crazy!!!

Each pregnancy can be different, so you may not have nausea. There are pregnancy tests available at pharmacies that can give accurate results within 2 days after your expected period.

Your best test would be performed by your physician.

I wish you and your husband the best!

I got my last period on Sept. 10. My husband and i hae been trying to get pregnant. Yesterday 9/27 I started spotting very lightly and today it got heavier. I have some cramping. However this is nothing compared to my normal periods. I was wondering if this is implantation bleeding? I hope it is. I took a HPT and it was negative. I don't know if I should wait ? I just don't feel right , dizzy moody, sick at certain odors. Please let me know if anyone has experienced this before.

Too early to tell for sure. Check with your physician or his/her nurse for their opinion since they know your history better.

i have a similar experience. I ovulated on Sept 29 and yesterday (10/10/05) started spotting what a has changed from pink-ish red to a sort brown smudgy blood. I feel very bloated, tired, nauseous, moody, achey, etc, etc so I tested today. Negative. I don't necessarily believe the test though. I have had 2 other pregnancies so I thought I knew what to expect but I'm just not sure. I will wait a week or 2 and see what happens and then test again.
Problem is...does this spotting count as an irregular period now? What do I use as the first day of my cycle? The first day I spotted or the day i was SUPPOSED to start? :?
