I got my first PP AF last month. It was basically two days spotting. I'm not sure it ever qualified as light flow but I put the first day as that since it was consistently there every time I wiped after going to the bathroom but never really needed a panty liner. I figured I could start charting now even though I am only currently doing CM. Yesterday I got my AF again. Right on time but I'm not sure what to list it as. It's not heavy enough to be considered light flow and it has all but stopped today (except for a few hours this morning after I woke up). Should I list it as spotting which then continues on my cycle from last month or do I just put it as light and count it since it would be when I was to get my period? Should I change my first one to spotting as well or leave it? Does any of that rambling make sense!?

I think TCOYF considers AF to start the first day of actual red flow. What you describe sounds like spotting. That's my best guess
