    Hi, I have ovulated this month for the first time in 6 months.
    Using Ovulation sticks my husband and I found out our best two days for conceiving and 'went' for it - however, now i'm confused...

    ...8 days after trying to conceive i started what I thought was 'spotting', but its turned out to be heavier than that. Its lighter than my normal period and is also 7 days before my normal period start date (every 35 days)

    Has anyone else experienced this - i'm guessing this is a sure-fire sign that I'm not pregnant this month (although secretly I can't let go of the thought that maybe, just maybe I still might be)

    Any help, advice, reassurance would be gratefully received as I feel I can't trust my own body anymore to give me the signals i need!

    Thanks
    Sam :roll:

    I can't give you any answers, but can just say I know how you feel!

    This month I was convinced we bd at the right time and I ovulated etc etc. I too started spotting 6 days before I was expecting af, and convinced myself it was implantation bleeding! due to the fact it was only 10 days past ov. Turned out I came on 2 days after the spotting,still 4 days early for af! :? it has been a really light af, but too much to be ib!

    I hope you find out either way soon if it is an early af or ib for you....

    I know what you mean about not being able to trust your body for signs and symptoms! they never do the same thing two months in a row!

    Good luck

    Hi Sam,
    I had very light spotting 1 week before af due which carried on for 3 days...I am normally a heavy 'bleeder' so i thought it could be implantaion bleeding but ho hum my period started full blast today 3 days before af due..... so, i suppose only time can tell, but hope it works out for you :)

    Well..
    my bleed didn't last as long as my period - only 4 days with only 1 of those being a real bleed (sorry if tmi..!) I'm still getting twinges but have no other symptoms that I might be pregnant, so am guessing not.

    But considering this is the first month out of 6 that I have ovulated, I am holding on to the fact that my body is starting to get itself back to some sort of normality (can you tell that I am trying to convince myself that I am staying positive??)

    I've already warned my hubby that we are going to be BD a whole lot more this month!! (don't think he was too fazed) :wink:

    We will get there eventually - Good luck all!!
