We have been TTC for almost 3 years and recently, my cycles seem to have regulated and I'm ovulating earlier and my AF is more like an actual AF since I've been taking rub-in progesterone cream after I ovulate. We are both 34, TTC #1.

SO, here's our story:
CD9 - BD
CD10 - BD
CD11 - slept
CD12 - BD
CD13 - suspected o day - BD
CD14 - literally, a gush of bright red blood in the evening. Enough to cover the TP entirely when wiping.(I thought, *** is this?! Was I having a period?!) In the past, I have had super light spotting around ovulation, but it hasn't been every cycle and it was nothing like this.

1DPO-7DPO - nothing special, felt normal, no cm to speak of, no spotting, nothing.... but I started applying my progesterone cream the evening of 1DPO to give myself time to ovulate just in case it didn't immediately happen right before the spotting showed up.

8DPO - Today! This morning I went to use the restroom when I got up and when wiping, I had this thin/watery light brown cm with tiny brown specks in it when wiping. No flow. I am still having traces of it now (5 hours later) when wiping after using the restroom but am having no cramps or anything additional.

My question is what is this super light spotting? I know I ovulated already and this appears to be the right time for implantation bleeding if that is what this is. We are so hopeful that this is it for us, today when I mentioned what was happening, DH was all excited and talked about how cool a little girl would be. I am over the moon hopeful... please give me some advice here. I am completely out of the loop here and so excited about the possibility that this cycle might be it, I think its clouding my ability to be a realist lol.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you ladies for your time.


__________________________
Update 3/19/13:

So I think I might be off by a day or so on my #DPO.... I think today I am 11dpo according to my calculations, I apologize if there was any confusion.

As an update, I am still spotting, light light pink/light light brown. It stopped for a day over the weekend but came back. I have no cramps, no nothing other than breast soreness. I have no idea if its the progesterone cream causing the breast soreness or not.

So, this morning I took two Wondfo (blue) dip strip tests with the second potty trip of the day. Here are the links to my pics.

http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...lleryid=109259

Now I've heard that these blue strips when compared with the pink ones, will not show up as well as on the pink. I saw someone post about this very same thing (the blue showed nothing, the pink CLEARLY showed two lines.)

I am so ******* frustrated, we have been trying for years (!) to have just one child and nothing seems to be working out. We are both healthy, our bd is right on schedule etc, etc. I am just so heartbroken if we didn't conceive AGAIN this month.

Can anyone help, give advice, insight or their .02? I am grabbing at straws!!!

Updated 3/20/12.

My period is due in 2 more days, but I am still lightly spotting today. It is the same amount as its been since the spotting started, there has been no change in "flow" as its only when I wipe (its clearish/pinkish/brownish/occassionally a watered down light red). I put on a liner yesterday thinking after the bfn tests that my period was soon to show.

So this morning I caved and put in a tampon thinking it was just AF on her way. Took it out 5 hours later and theres virtually no blood on there, like its not even "filled" just dotted with topical spotting.

I also decided to check my cervix while I was doing that and my cervix has gone weird today. It appears that its turned posterior and raised up a little, like just enough where I have to reach deeper to touch it. Also, my OS feels tightly closed, as I usually can feel the "split" when it drops low ready for AF but this doesn't feel the same as that. I also have no cramps. Both of my breasts are still very lightly sore, usually I only have one that's sore lol.

I am pretty sure I am 12 dpo today. I took another wondfo blue dip strip test this morning with FMU and it was a clear negative.

Please help.

I can only talk from my experience but I am 10 dpo and I started spotting on Monday which I would of been 6dpo and it lasted until 8dpo I seen my Dr on Tuesday and he said that it was a very good sign that I could be pregnant and not to worry about it and to test on the week end.

And I did not have any cramping until the second day that i was spotting and it was very light cramping and as far as the spotting it was only there when I wiped sorry tmi ..there was nothing on my panty liner but like I said it lasted 2 and half days. And we are also very hopeful that we did conceive this cycle. Fx for us that we both get our BFP this cycle

Sounds good if you are certain your ovulated. Do you have a chart you can share so I can get a better idea?

OMG i wish i seen this post last night. I was going crazy like you were at 8DPO.. i had some pink CM with red specks in it last night and then it stopped nothing else so far. I am hoping it is IB I would say that cheapies do not pick up as early as FRER or answer so maybe use FMU with one of those I think I see something in the second link!!!

Have you also had vaginal dryness too?! I had a huge glob of CM come out 2 days ago and now I am pretty dry... I think it is my excessive peeing that is doing it for me.

I HOPE THIS IS A GREAT SIGN FOR BOTH OF US!

I had spotting for 2 days when AF hit me in full force this morning. I literally had my cervix drop WAY low in a matter of a couple of hours so if it is getting higher then that is a great sign I could smell the AF musk I knew she was going to come the next day.. sorry!

12 DPO is still early especially if the spotting has not stopped. I would wait it out until Friday and see if you get AF and if not TEST
