    So confused? Implant or early period?

    I'm trying to stay sane but this months cycle has been very strange! I'm 11DPO and since yesterday I have had some light brown "colouring" when I wipe and have had mild cramps on and off. My AF isn't due for 3 more days and I've never had them early. I know spotting is quite common when implantation occurs but is cramping? Surely cramping isn't a good sign? I'm so disappointed!!! When's the best time to test?

    Could be implantation. I would be testing with your FMU in the morning. Cramping can be a good sign actually as long as its not accompained (sp?) with bright red blood. Brown blood is a sign that its old blood or implantation. HTH

    Thanks for your advice MM! I did a test this morning using FMU and I got a very paint BFP!!!! I'm 12-13dpo so will test again tomorrow and see if it gets darker. Very excited but also very nervous as we had a miscarriage two months ago at 5 weeks...

    You are so sweet MM! I'll re-test tomorrow to make sure the line gets darker. Can I ask about the cramps? Do they last long? I don't remember having them in my first pregnancy. They do worry me! Thanks again!
