I’ve tried to take a step back from TTC this month because I always work myself up and then face a big disappointment. However:
AF is due in four days. My cycles were out of wack until TWO cycles ago, and for these past two cycles I predicted AF arrived at 27 days on the dot. Today, I have had spotting at 24 days. Accompanied with cramps. I don’t usually have cramps when I have AF; cramps disappear few days before.
Trying not to get my hopes up but, is implantation bleeding accompanied with cramping? Also: I had a positive OPK 14 days ago, meaning I am probably 13 dpo (can’t temp, sleep cycles too erratic).

I bet Septcabride will chime in, but implantation spotting is extremely rare. It totally happens, but is rare. I think the cramping is a better sign (if it’s unusual for you). The one month I got a BFP I had major cramping around 7dpo then it went away.
Wiswhing you good luck!!

I second what @JaneyD: said. Implantation Bleeding doesn’t happen very often but the differences from your normal cycle are usually better at predicting a BFP. The month I had my BFP my breasts were SO SORE and they never are before AF. If cramps are unusual, there’s reason for hope:)

I’m confused. You said AF comes at 27 days, and that you got a positive OPK 14 days ago. That would mean you’re ovulating on cd9. Then havig an LP of 18 days. Is that right?
I agree with the other PP’s regardless

It’s so hard to know for sure until you get that positive pregnancy test. Cramping is a pretty common symptom in early pregnancy. I experienced implantation spotting at 13 DPO. Everyone is different though. Good luck and sending baby dust your way!

good luck to you doll. I had implantation bleeding but no cramping at all. i never get middleschmirtz though so if you do maybe it just means you are ovulating. i hope it’s your month!

ah lily I hope this is your month! I did not have spotting, but did have a sharp twingy-thing around when I think implantation was. Then, I had period-like cramping until 8 weeks 🙂

@mwitter80: so when I wrote this I was “off” by one day- af was THREE days early… So got it CD24, with positive Opk on CD10. Not sure what this means as far as Luteal? Am on 5th day of light bleeding, liners only . I an thinking its just a light early period. Cramps never accompany AF which throws me off. :-/
