Hi ladies,
I am a frequent member of the Aug. 08 PR and we are trying for our second. I asked this question on my PR's board last month, and lots of the ladies told me that this board is awesome for questions about TTC, so I thought I'd ask you all! Hope that's okay

My cycle is pretty normal, every 30 days. However, when I start my period, I spot very lightly for about 3 days and then I get a normal/heavy flow. My question is, do I count the very first day of my period as the first day of my cycle even though it's only light spotting? Or do I count the day that I got a regular flow as my first day?

I am planning on buying an ovulation kit this month, but still not sure when I start the testing!

Any advice would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks SO much!
Lauren

CD1 is first day of regular flow, don't count spotting. And my particular doc swears only by clear blue easy digi smiley face opks. Hope this helps! My cycles average 32 days and I test days 14-21, usually Oing around cd17

Agree, everyone told me count from the first real day of flow.
The first time I bought tests I tested from day 8 cuz I knew something was going on and on day 9 I got my smiley face.. So I o On day 10 or 11..

You'll find out pretty quickly tho! Good Luck!!
