we agreed to start ttc in late July/August in the midst of all the things that happen with a parent (his) dying months before the wedding because I am old therefore have shriveled eggs.
I didn’t start charting til then. I had been normal and am pretty confident my regular would stand.
5-7 days post ovulation (Christmas Eve) I started spotting and am not due for AF til the 1st. I’m still spotting – not enough for me to say I’m early with light cramping. and stress.
So, research says implantation bleeding is pretty much an internet myth and I *know* there’s no point in testing until I am officially late with no signs of a true period butttttttt this is so freakin frustrating. I am open to ideas/suggestions/and possible drink recipes.. (i kid.. .kinda.)

Not a myth but def not as common as it seems on the internet 🙂 I say just wait and see, could be a fluke..:couled be the ever elusive unicorn we call implantation bleeding…who knows just watch and wait. i had a weird 40 day cycle with spotting once and it never ever happened again..:weird things happen.

@MsDontRushME: not sure what sort of suggestions you are looking for? We’ve been TTC since about the same time – these things just take time for some couples.
As for implantation being an “internet myth”, not really sure I agree with that. Lots of women experience it, and you are right in the correct window for it. I myself have been spotting for the last few days (AF is due any day) so I am just going to hope for the best that it’s IB. It’s all you can really do!
Good luck, FX!

Thanks yall, I dont know that there are suggestions … Patience was not a virtue I posses. I think I am maddest at being a silly woman about this … the part I’ll just concentrate on is that I’ll know better by the time we leave for the honeymoon.. I am a horrible “wait-er”!
Thanks for the kind words again!
