Implantation bleeding

Just looking for some advice from my glow community. 
Have any of you experienced implantation bleeding? This is my 11th month TTC for first baby with husband, and I have been having different feelings but then yesterday I started spotting. Everything I've read makes it sound like IB. It was brown, only lasted a couple hours and now gone today. I just don't want to get my hopes up.
AF due Friday, the 19th. 
Now, I usually spot a few days before AF but never this early and it's not normally brown but rather red. And when I start spotting, it continues every morning until AF starts. So there are some differences. 
Just wanted to hear real women experiences. I read a lot on google but it's not the same as hearing from y'all. 
Anything helps!
