Hi everyone! I'm new to these boards and I hope this is one where I will feel welcome; other boards I have tried have gotten me rude and snooty responses. This is only my 2nd month TTC, so I still am figuring out everything.
When charting my temps (this is my first cycle doing this), I noticed that I possibly ovulate a tiny bit later than average, at CD 17. I am now at CD 31 and waiting for AF...for the past few days, I've been feeling like I'm about to start, but I haven't. I never cramp with AF, but my legs get achy the day of or the day before. My achy legs started a few days ago but no AF yet, just a little bit of light brown/pink CM when I wipe (not normal for me, even before AF). I researched a little and found that implantation bleeding usually occurs by day 12.
My question is, since I did not ovulate until CD17, is it possible that I am having implantation bleeding now at 14DPO? Or is it more likely that this is just an odd start to AF?
Also, I'm not sure how long my cycles are because they are different (I've only kept up with it a few months, but here they are) Cycle lengths: 27, 30, 26, and I'm currently on cd31
Thank you for any help and sorry if that ran long!
Hi and welcome! If you're sure you ovulated on CD 17 this cycle, then my guess would be you're having an odd start to AF. However, lots of ladies experience spotting or bleeding during pregnancy right around the time their period should come. So it *could* go either way.
In any case, you could most likely take a test at this point and get an accurate result. Good luck and let us know what happens!
