Implantation spotting that was more like a period!

Description:
I posted this chart earlier because I thought it was perhaps triphasic. I had what I thought was my period starting on day 23, which was really early, I never have started earlier than day 26. On May 19th, I went to the RE to because next month I was going to try my first IUI with Clomid and Ovidrel. They took a blood test and called me later in the day to tell me I had a faint pregnancy and it was level 13 (I guess that is the beta level, after googling it and pretty low) So maybe this is a chemical pregnancy and will not stick. My real period is supposed to start tomorrow. Has anyone had implantation bleeding that was heavy enough to use tampons and passed small clots. Feeling nervous but also relieved to find that I can at least get pregnant. Will return tomorrow to the RE for another test, and if its gone down I hope I can still do the IUI this next cycle.

It sounds like a chemical pregnancy to me.  Did you take a pregnancy test at home too?  I think I possibly had one last night since I was late and I'm never late.  I'm surprised they didn't do an ultrasound to verify.  Maybe it was too early.  Let us know how it goes.

Update: Went to have another blood test yesterday and my hcg went from 13 to 40 so the nurse said pregnancy is going good so far. I never took a home pregnancy test so I wouldnt have known about a chemical pregnancy. I was at the Dr because I was going to start Clomid. I think that the first test was so light just because it was a brand new pregnancy as I was not even 2 weeks past ovulation. Still spotting which worries me, but I will see the Dr again and take another blood test so hopefully level will go up again. My temp this morning was higher than I have ever had at 98.5. I have heard women had what they thought was a period and go on to deliver so I am keeping faith it is sticking.

This gives me hope.  I'm on day 5 of spotting.  Was wondering what could be happening.  I tested a couple of days ago, probably too early.  Please keep us updated.  Every story is an opportunity to learn something new. :)

Any update?  This sounds eerily similar to my situation so I was wondering if you have any new news?!!
