Just wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen to them? Here's my story: I have had all the signs of gearing up for ovulation today. I think I will probably O tonight or tomorrow. Last night I had my SO use a speculum to check my cervix. She said I look nice and fertile (cervix is high, soft, and very open). She also mentioned that I had a very, very tiny amount of blood tinged cervical mucous leaving my cervix. Well, this morning I went pee (OPK looked almost positive but not quite) and when I wiped, the toilet paper also had a little blood on it. I had SO check my cervix again this morning and she said there is still a little blood tinged cervical mucous leaving my cervix. I guess I'll call my midwife today for an appointment just to R/O infection, but this is a bit bothersome.

Bloody egg white mucous should be considered your peak day of fertility.

Huh. I had never heard of blood mucous as a peak fertility sign. :

Your peak day is the last day of eggwhite-quality cervical fluid or lubricative vaginal sensation, or any midcycle spotting

Midcycle spotting

About 10% of women will notice that they occasionally have a day or two of spotting about midcycle, right around ovulation. In fact, they may even notice that the fertile cervical fluid is tinged with brown, red, or pink. This is a result of spotting mixed with cervical fluid. It is considered extremely fertile. It's usually due to the sudden drop in estrogen that precedes ovulation, and is nothing to be concerned about. If anything it is a good secondary sign to record on your chart


Hope this helps sending baby dust your way!!

Just goes to show that I've been losing brain cells in the past couple years . I should review TCOYF, or better yet, one of these days I should just get a copy to keep handy. Thanks a lot for the info. That makes me feel a lot better. Oh and thanks for the baby dust too. I can't wait to be preggers!
