Just curious b/c Sunday, I had a tiny, tiny amount of blood. It was hardly noticeable, and if I hadn't been checking CM, I probably wouldn't have seen it. I've never had that before. I usually never have spotting at all. So I'm wondering if that could be ovulation spotting. It would've been CD 14, so I guess it's possible. I had/have lots of EWCM. Does the spotting happen a few days before Oing or like right when O is happening?

I have never had O spotting myself, but what you are describing sounds like it could be O spotting.

O spotting is actually very uncommon. Usually if it is true O blood the only real way to see it is if you check your cervix and even then it is pretty uncommon.

Thank you HeatherW for my beautiful siggy!

I had implantation bleeding with both pregnancies.

With Xander, it was only enough to see on the TP, just a tinge of blood.

With this pregnancy I had a little spotting on a mini-pad, less than the size of a dime.

Both times were right about the day AF was due.

edit: nevermind, sorry was thinking 'implantation' not 'ovulation' spotting. DOH!

Someone said O spotting is uncommon. Well, maybe I'm one of those who is "uncommon" LOL, but I have had it a few times in my life. And, yes, it usually comes during my heaviest ewcm days and 1-4 days before my temps jump up. Fwiw, I had it during the cycle that I got pregnant with this one and if I remember correctly, I also had it with one other pregnancy. For me, it must be a good sign that I'm extremely fertile.

I hope it means I'm really fertile this cycle, too! I've never had spotting like that. It was VERY faint, and I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been checking my CM.

I have been wondering myself about ovulation spotting. My past few cycles I have noticed that between day 15-17 of my cycle I have been spotting, everytime it happens I think maybe its implantation spotting but its not! so i was starting to wonder if its ovulation spotting, I dont do charts or anything but my cycles are usually around 32-35 days and it seems like those days could be o days!
