There's nothing when I wipe or anything, but I just checked my cervix wit a speculum and noticed very light spotting around the cervix. I'm due to ovulate approx. tomorrow or the 23rd and just started getting dull cramps in my lower abdomen.


Does anyone else get this? Is it normal? I read somewhere it's a "great sign of fertility", but who knows. Any input is appreciated!

When you are fertile, your cervix turns pink from all the blood collecting in your cervix.  As your cervix opens, sometimes those tiny blood vessles break and bleed a little causing spotting.  So, yes, that's a good fertile sign.  Good luck!
