Hi! I'm new to the site, but hoping to get some advice!


I O'd on Friday: I've been charting BBT and using OPK, so I'm at 5 dpo. I've been having cramping 4-5 dpo and today had pink CM after BM (sorry TMI).


Am I out for the month? Anyone know what's going on? I think it may be too early for IB...

It does seem early for implantation bleeding, but I wouldn't count yourself out for this month!  It's also early for pre-AF spotting.  It could be something totally harmless.  Hang in there a few more days and maybe you'll get a BFP.  upsidedown.gif

Thanks for your input! We timed things pretty well - so I'm hopnig it's our month!


I usually don't have any mid-cycle spotting (I had a little bit more today) - so it's very strange for me
