So I’ve been TTC for seven months now. So far, everything has been pretty normal – with the exception of a late AF here and there. But temps are consistant, AF is consistant (about a 26 day cycle). This cycle, however, is different. I got AF on time…which is good. AF ended and I was expecting my fertile window to show up four days later. I took a Clearblue OPK test and BAM, right away I got a solid smile face, which means I’m at my peak fertility! So I made sure to BD with my hsuband right away, even though this was very early in the cycle to receive a peak fertility result. The next day, I woke up, took another OPK test and I got an empty circle – in other words – low fertility reading. What?? Okay – so I think the smiley face may have been a false positive, so I keep testing. For a solid week or more, I kept getting low readings on both the clearblue tests and the wondfu tests – but I did notice a slight darker line on the wondfu’s each morning – so I started to think I definitely got a false positive on the CB. It’s probably also important to note that my temps have remained low this entire time. Last night I got home from a workout and noticed that I was feeling pretty crampy – like I was getting AF. Well something in me thought we should BD, so we did last night. This morning I woke up, took another CB test and got another solid smiley face and a double solid line wondfu test. Great!! Maybe this means our BD timing was perfect! So here’s the riddle. I just went to the bathroom and when I finished (sorry, tmi), I was spotting light brownish blood. And I’m definitely feeling a bit crampy. Has this happened to anyone else? I’ve heard of implantation bleeding – but if I just hit peak fertility, then I wouldn’t be implanting right now. I’ve never experienced spotting with ovulation before. I’m at such a loss with my cycle this month. I know all I can do is wait and see, but I’m curious if anyone has any thoughts on what might be happening here.
