  • When that happened to me, and I'm not saying for sure this is exactly your situation, it was implantation cramping and bleeding. I thought it was my period because some of the cramping was really painful but it was implantation. It happened with both my pregnancies but to a lesser extent with my second. If you are regular enough to know where you are in your cycle, that will usually be what tells you what is going on.

  • well AF isn't suppose to come til 16th or 17th. I am usually regular right on time but now im cramping not enough to take my motrin 800 mg and spotting. my AF are generally very painful and extremely heavy. So i will have to take a test if it doesn't pick up. i want to know for myself before i let my mind get out of control. you know what im saying.
