    Default Has anyone ever been pg and still got their first period?

    I read on this site that it is called breakthrough bleeding.

    I had a HCG reading of 7 on Friday the day AF was due (13DPO) (doc said it was still positive but extremely early) - I was not showing up on HPT's at this stage.

    Two days later (Sunday) AF showed up (which I thought was a sign of miscarrage as I assumed I was pg - Blood Test showed HCG level of 15 (15DPO) (Different Doc said this was a negative result and I was not pg).

    Finished bleeding today (Wednesday) and got a nice BFP on HPT. The line started showing on Sunday but only very very weak and only with first morning urine. It is now showing up nice and strong today. Also was vomiting on Tuesday morning from 5am - 9.30am.



    I am convinced it was my period because it must have implanted so close to when AF was due and I didn't have enough of the chemical in my system to stop it from arriving. I am feeling a lot better now but still a little on guard.

    Please let me know if this has happened to you.

    Thanks

    This happened to me with my first pregnancy. Apparently it's pretty common. Since your BFPs are strong i would say it was a breakthough bleed and nothing to worry about. Some women even get it every month until birth.

    Thanks for all the reassurance ladies!!!

    I am off to see OB today so hopefully he will be able to ease my mind.

    Other than feeling a bit squeemish in the mornings I don't have a lot of other symptoms - no swollen or sore BB's etc. Maybe it is just because it is still early days???

    Thanks again!

    I don't have swollen b's either. They are sore a little but only when my DS attaches for a feed. Its worse on one side too. So it a good chance its just poor attachment when he feeds too...
