My hubby and I are TTC for baby #2, and haven't had much luck so far. I bought one of those ovulation microscopes, but wasn't able to see a clear ferning pattern... I don't know if I was using it wrong, or if it was something to do with my cycle. But I was excited when AF didn't show up when I was expecting her. As it turns out, she was a week and a half late, started with a tiny bit of spotting, was lighter than usual (the volume of the bleeding) and didn't last as long as usual. All this has got me fairly puzzled.
Any ideas? Or am I just coming apart at the seams?
It could be anything. The only way to know what's it's from is by tracking your cervical mucus. Then you can tell if the bleed is from rising hormones and possibly related to ovulation, or if it's from falling hormones after your body tried to ovulate and didn't go through with it. It could also be implantation, if ovulation occurred within the last 7-10 days.
