here's my chart: HereToDream - TCOYF

I've done a poor job of charting this month since we moved and temporarily lost internet/TCOYF, but does anyone have any idea as to what's going on?
I've been tired and nauseous since the spotting started, and I was under the impression that ovulatory spotting would only last 2-3 days at most (is this incorrect?). But these are definitely ovulatory symptoms for me.
I'm going to start doing a better job at charting again now that we're more settled, but this is all I have for now.
It's heavy spotting, but definitely not heavy enough for the "menses" option, and it seems like there's usually creamy or slippery CM when I clean my Diva cup.

Thanks in advance for any advice

Unfortunately, there is just too much missing data to say for sure what's going on. Don't worry too much about what you see in your Diva cup, it's likely just endometrial fluid and not produced by the cervix as fertile mucus is.

This could really go either way. It could be breakthrough spotting, related to ovulation or it could be implantation.

I didn't know that! Is there a way to check my CF while I'm spotting like this, or do I just have to use the spotting as my indicator?
Thank you for taking the time to answer

Some changes happen to the fluids as they move from inside to outside the body, so you can save your Diva for the heavier days and use pantyliners on spotting days instead. That way you can still observe for vaginal sensation, to see if you notice feeling dry or if you notice feeling wetness. Or just always consider spotting potentially fertile and don't assume infertility until you've had 3 days to make observations without the Diva in place.
