Brown spotting...the end?

So I'm 12dp3dt and have had brown spotting on and off since Sunday night. I had terrible pains in my lower abdomen on Sunday afternoon and again last night. It's like a sharp stabbing pain. It's not like my usual period pain but then I've never been on so many drugs before! I usually get spotting before period starts so I know that I'm out. Despite that I keep clinging on hoping for a miracle. Test day is tomorrow with bloods at clinic on Thursday. Anyone else had similar and still had BFP?

Hi. I usually get brown spotting before af too. However it doesn't necessarily mean that you're out, it could be implantation spotting. As a general rule brown blood is old blood too. Unless af arrives full flow then please try to keep calm until otd 🤞xx

Thanks for your supportTugsgirl. It's really hard to believe it's anything other than bad news, especially with the pains I've had. I think the only thing keeping full on af at bay for now are the pessaries. Who knows! Roll on tomorrow for test day, can't come quick enough x
