I am 8 DPO today. Yesterday I noticed spotting and this morning i feel like i have a full blown period. Cramps, backache and now its red blood. Do you think I got my period a week early or can you have heavy flow implantation bleeding??? Im so confused now.

Sounds like your period. IB is not normally bright red. Ib is normally light pink or brown because it's "old blood".

I read a few articles online and some say you can get bright red blood but without the flow. I have the fright red blood and its not flowing out of me. Nothing is going on my pad. Just when I wipe i notice it.

With my last pregnancy I had an "early period", like full-blown. A month and a half later I found out I was preggo and from a dating ultrasound I discovered that had been implantation bleeding. And with my first pregnancy, which unfortunately ended in a miscarriage, I had 2 days of red bleeding as well. So from personal experience I can tell you it is possible! Good luck!

My last pregnancy I had a lot of spotting for 2 days. It was brown and pink at first, but then it was bright red. No cramping though. DD will be 3 in July. :) I'd watch it for a couple of days and see what happens. If it stops, then wait a day or two and test. If it doesn't stop and it turns into a full on period, then you may have ovulated a little sooner than you thought this cycle. Good luck and baby dust!

It's funny you should post this.  Last month I had what I thought was an early period at 9dpo (on CD31).  It started brown and mucousy then bright red.   Then a week later I had brown discharge for 2 days.. then it stopped.  I'm on CD31 of the next cycle, and my CBFM didn't show that I ovulated and neither did my OPK before the digital holder broke.  I had bad cramping on Tuesday, some cramping on Wed and Thursday, and still no AF.  It's weird.  i want to test but I don't want to jinx.

Wow! I don't know what that would be. I've heard of people bleeding through their entire pregnancies at about the same time they would normally have a period though. I'd take a test just to see. If its not that, then I'd call the dr and get checked out. Good luck and baby dust hun!
