Implantation bleeding


I would like to know, what does implantation bleeding look like and how long does it last. Can it last for +- 1 1/2 days?

Secondly I would like to know if you get abdominal pain as a pregnancy sign - where exactly is it. Is it just above the hair line? Does it feel simular to a light urine infection pain or what???

Thirdly, I have small bumps on my niples, about +- 4/5 on each. Could my niples be preparing for pregnancy? My breast are also feeling very "heavy".

Please advise

Implantation si usually lighter than a normal period and lasts a shorter time. There aren't exact times.
Likewise the pain is not specific.
If you have not missed a period, you will not have any breast tenderness yet. That only starts later in pregnancy.

hi Katey,

If you go down your screen to "search" and type in "implantation" you can see all the previous questions regarding implantation - it is quite interesting! I never even knew about it before I started logging on to this website.
Good luck
