Implantation Bleeding During Pregnancy Is Scary. Reassuring Facts About Implantation Bleeding.

Implantation Bleeding During Pregnancy Is Scary. Reassuring Facts About Implantation Bleeding.


Facts about implantation bleeding during pregnancy. Educate yourself about what is implantation bleeding, when does it occur, signs, symptoms and much more.

What is implantation bleeding?
It is not unusual that some women experience implantation bleeding in the early stages of pregnancy. Any bleeding outside implantation bleeding of pregnancy is classified as a threatened miscarriage, meaning the pregnancy is threatening to miscarriage. About 25 of all threatened miscarriages settle down and a normal pregnancy happens.

How long does implantation bleeding last?
Implantation bleeding occurs very early in pregnancy as a direct result of the fertilized egg (your growing baby) burying and snuggling its way into the lining of your womb. Implantation bleeding occurs about 10-14 days after the egg has been fertilized or when conception occurred.

This is also around the time when your menstrual cycles would be expected. Most cases of implantation bleeding last for a few minutes to a few days. If implantation bleeding lasts more than a few days then it may be a sign of infection or a threatened miscarriage.

Signs of Implantation Bleeding:
Signs of implantation bleeding can vary from one pregnant woman to another. It normally mild in nature and is much lighter than a normal menstrual period.

What does implantation bleeding look like?
What implantation bleeding looks like depends on how long it takes from the blood to travel to the outside of your body. The color of implantation bleeding can vary form bright red to brown implantation bleeding. Bright red implantation bleeding means that there is an active area of bleeding within the womb and blood is flowing from the site of implantation to the outside of your body very quickly. It may indicate that implantation has just occurred.

Brown implantation bleeding is the color of old blood. When you get brown implantation bleeding it normally means that when the fertilized egg buried it way into the womb, a little blood was released. The bleeding that occurred at the moment of implantation stayed in the womb for some time so by the time you see it on your underwear or when you wipe yourself it showed up as brown implantation bleeding.

How heavy is implantation bleeding?
Heavy implantation bleeding is unusual. The only thing you might notice with implantation bleeding is a pinkish or brown discharge when you wipe yourself after you go to the bathroom.

Cramps with implantation bleeding:
Cramps with implantation bleeding can happen. You may even experience cramps with or without bleeding. The reason you may experience cramps with implantation bleeding is because as the fertilized egg buries into your womb, it caused the muscle of your womb to contract. These contractions press on nerve endings and may result in mild to moderate menstrual like pains for 24-48 hours.

What to do if you have signs of implantation bleeding:
Do not panic if you have any of the above signs of implantation bleeding. Remember 50% of all cases of implantation bleeding end up in a normal pregnancy.

Know your blood type. Depending on your partners blood type and if you are a rhesus negative blood type then it may be necessary to have an Rh-immune globulin injection within 24 hours of any pregnancy bleeding.

If you suspect you may be pregnant and your bleeding is from implantation bleeding then do a home pregnancy test. This home test should remain positive. If it is positive and you do not know your blood Rhesus factor, then call your provider for consultation for possible Rh-immune globulin.

Never insert a tampon, douche, or have intimacy while you are bleeding.
Keep track of whether the bleeding is increasing or decreasing and how many pads you are using.

If you feel your pregnancy bleeding is heavier or lasting longer than the above ranges then call your health care provider for consultation immediately.

Bleeding during pregnancy is scary. Your personal fear is picked up by your unborn child. Intra uterine fear can stay with your child for a lifetime, so constantly reassure your baby that he or she is wanted and loved.

Pregnancy can be an extraordinary experience for a woman. Everything you think, say or do during your pregnancy has a profound effect on your pregnancy and your unborn child. The outcome of any pregnancy depends on many factors.

Pregnancy has a huge emotional, mental, spiritual, and energetic side to it. The more you understand these aspects, the easier and less symptomatic your pregnancy will be. Learning how to connect with the emotions of your unborn child will allow you to enhance your pregnancy experience and surrender to its normal physiological process and reduce miscarriage potential.

Hi ladies,
I had been looking ALL over about this topic to see if what I was experiencing was in fact implanatation bleeding. Exactly a week before I should have started my period I had spotting and it seemed like a period. I told my husband I was so confused and it JUST didnt make sense. I always had accurate periods and thought it was due to stress, starting a new school year, trying etc...
IT WAS IMPLANTATION BLEEDING! I am pregnant and the symptoms I had were exact. If you are having any dull cramps, fatigue, headaches and spotting before your missed period...I bet your pregnant. I didn't have to use ONE tampon so I knew (or thought) that there was no way that this bleeding could have been my period. I wante dto tell all of you to be patient and wait to take a test until your missed period date. I took one 2 days after my missed and it was positive! (9 days after I started the weird bleeding)
GOOD LUCK!

I'm having a hard time trying to determine the difference between all of this. Am I having implantation bleeding, miscarriage, or just a period. This past week I have been having cravings like crazy, nausea, headaches, mood swings, bloating, tender/swollen breasts...but now I am bleeding. I'm cramping in the front/lower abdominal area (I never cramp there.) The blood went from brownish pinkish to bright redish pinkish and back to brown. Started off extremely light, stopped, and now it is just bloody. It isn't heavy and thick, it's almost at a watery consistancy but very vivid. Help???

I'm in the same boat as you. I had un protected sex 2 weeks ago. My period was due in 12 or 13 days from there. On day 12 I started, but its weird. Light , spotty, pinkish brown, but bright red sometimes. Very light and spotty though. I've been thirsty, acne, nausea,off and on, backache, tender breast, moody but I'm not sure if its normal period or implantation. Light cramping any ideas?

Hi ladies, I feel a little bit better after reading this articles and many of your comments. I am still very confused and scared though!
I am 5 days away from starting my period and this morning I was wiping myself and I saw this thick stretchy mucus with brown and red and it's been there every time I wipe after going to the bathroom
( sorry tmi ) . I don't know if it's implantation bleeding I don't remember having it with my first baby.
Unfortunately I had a miscarriage 4 months ago that's why I am so worried this time around.
I did take a pregnancy test it came out negative I guess I'll have to wait to see if I get my period to take another one. Wish me luck.

Is it possible to get pregnant right before your period? Then 3 days after period finished to bleed again? And its not spotting its full on bright red blood.
