Well, we have had a really, really unwelcome surprise today.
My appointment to get my BFN or BFP isn’t till next tues, right? On the second or third IUI cycle, my AF arrived early so I never had to have the BFN bloodtest. During that cycle I was on quite a low dose of oral progesterone.
I have been cramping mildly for four days now but we are still only day 9 post egg transfer. So imagine my horror this afternoon when i saw what looked/s like a period. I was in the loo at 4pm about to leave work and I looked down as you do… And gasped out loud. And then cried.
I’ve never experienced spotting, so I don’t really understand if it is only literally dots, or whether it can be more. It’s now four hours since I saw it and there is still some stuff coming out, but it seems it has definitely slowed down now.
My baby A came home early to be with me and I lay about crying for a couple of hours. I just can’t believe it. For a while earlier today I was absolutely convinced my period was here (even though I am on such a massive dose of progesterone in the form which last time delayed my period by several days).
The jury is still out a bit. The clinic sounded very surprised and told us that it is basically far too early to be a period. Did I forget to take any of meds? What colour is it?
No, and browny black respectively.
They told me that it happens. I must continue the drugs and let them know whether or not the flow stops. The colour is funny compared to my usual periods, for sure, but these last few years they have had a little prelude before the full Aunt Flow gets going.
So is it a weird unexplained bleed, or an inexplicably early period? Either way, I don’t get it!
