Implantation Bleeding Mimicking a Period?

I have a long and complicated sorry that even the head nurse at the obgyn couldn't understand... basically I had what seemed like a period, a week after it ended I started spotting and had a positive pregnancy test. So... could that be implantation bleeding? It lasted like 4 or 5 days. With my son I didn't have any bleeding of any kind so this is all new to me.

Could have been - a lot of women have bleeding throughout their pregnancy that mimics your period. I'd go to the doctor and see what's up. Have them do beta's and a sono (depending on when your period before that was). Best to sit with the DOCTOR and let them figure it out. Good luck!

Definitely could be. When I got pregnant with DD I thought what I had was my period because it lasted a few days. The following month I skipped and tested and found out I was pregnant. When I went into the doctor, I assumed I was only about 4-5 weeks, but I was already 8 1/2 weeks!

I have a sono appt July 2 and a dr appt July 7 - earliest they had available! I would have gotten pregnant from May's cycle - the nurse didn't believe it. Its just so strange. I hope it is only a one time thing... one of the best things about pregnancy is no periods Chat Icon

That happened to me with my second. Got what I thought was my period, a week later got a positive hpt. Went to the dr and pregnancy was confirmed but I had veryyyy low progesterone (not sure if it had anything to do with the bleeding). Got suppositories and Ds was born healthy at 40w2d

With my first I had implantation bleeding but it was very clearly implantation bleeding

Good luck

Re: Implantation Bleeding Mimicking a Period?

Does not sound like implantation bleeding, but could be perfectly normal. As mentioned, many women bleed in early pregnancy. I had a similar situation with bleeding that I thought was a period and then a +hpt, last summer (it did not end well, but that's certainly not always the case).
Good luck!!!

That happened to me. My cycle used to be like clockwork before DD, so initially I was surprised when I got what I thought was my period about 3 or 4 days early. But then it lasted 3-4 days, so I assumed I was just having a weird month. Then the next week, I had to pee every 5 minutes, I was so exhausted I couldn't stay awake and I started feeling nauseous on the train into work, which never happened. Got a positive HPT that week. I kept bleeding lightly though, so I was immediately brought in to the Dr for a sono and I was already 7 wks.
