No no no terrified 😒😒

Literally just got back from buying my tests and have wiped and there's spotting. Otd is tomorrow and now I'm terrified that this is af.

I've taken photos but not sure if I'm allowed to post here but if anyone would mind me pm'ing them to get an opinion I'd really appreciate it. I'm sat here sobbing and hubby won't be home until after I've gone to bed tonight 😒😒😒😒😒

Please don't let this be af

Hun is it spotting or do you actually see quiet a lot? Spotting is normal, many women have spotting and still get a BFP!!!

So far it just looks like spotting but it might start getting heavier

Just hope for the best, the last thing you want is to stress. If your OTD is tomorrow you can already do the test when hubby gets home today... many many women get spotting I've been reading so much on it lately, spotting is a part of the whole hatching process...

Do you have Af symptoms today? On their own it was a good sign for me but I didn’t get any spotting. But many women do xx

Haven't had any cramps today. All I've felt today is really hot, light headed and nauseous

Until you get full on Af type bleeding then try not to panic. I’m sorry, I know that’s easier said than done xx

I also had spotting last week and it scared the life out of me. It was brown and very light pink... I know its very easy to say as I sat and sobbed, but try not to worry too much. I read online that it could be caused by dozens of things - implantation bleeding, old blood from the egg collection/transfer, pessary irritation, as it's your usual period time your body could just rejecting a tiny bit of old blood... My spotting lasted a few hours and then stopped. The next day i just had a bit of brown discharge after my morning pessary. I've had nothing since (touch wood)... I went on to get my BFP. Think positive thoughts and take deep breaths. Sending a big hug xxxx

I had spotting a few days before my bfp, and i was convinced I was out, the clinic upped my pessaries and put me on progesterone injections. Sadly it ended with a mmc but that had absolutely nothing to do with the spotting, so please take the positive from this. I also think it would be safe for you to do a test now if you can't bare the waiting? Wishing you lots of luck xxx

I had brown spotting on my test day but it could easily have come 12 hours earlier and I got a BFP. Try and stay positive and good luck with the test xx
