One thing I used to do to check for spotting was do a cervix sweep with my finger, or press my fingertip into my cervix opening to see if there was any brown. It can take a while for the brown spotting to make it out to your underwear or toilet paper. This was an earlier way for me to tell.
I wouldn't check your cervix one day before AF was due, just in case you are pregnant you could cause irritation or an infection..Of course thats just me and what i would do..do whatever you feel comfortable with. You could possibly test positive on a HPT at this time
