I often spot 7-8 dpo, but sometimes it only happens 2 days before AF. I've been this way for years, but really didn't pay attention to it until I started TTC & charting. Then I started to worry... But then I found this thread, so now I'm not as worried. :-)
Started vitex & b6 to see if that would help, but I'm not sure they've done anything. My O day has gotten earlier in my cycle, but i doubt if that's statistically significant since I only have 3 charts to compare.
DH has an appt with his PCP Monday for a blood pressure check & he's thinking about asking how to go about getting an SA. It's a easy enough test to get out of the way even though we haven't been TTC a full 6 months yet. A couple guys DH works with had trouble TTC & have told him an SA is no biggie. They're really rooting for us to have a kid... I think just so we can feel their pain (lack of sleep, etc.), lol.
I haven't told any of my girlfriends about TTC though. I'm more shy about it. :-)
I haven't told anyone. And now it's been so long I'm glad we never told anyone! Although I do always think some of the people we are close to should have guessed by now and stop asking such inappropriate questions!
Hi AlicesHatter! I've recently joined this thread too and it's great to hear other people's experiences!
I was a couple days early in saying AF had arrived on Saturday as I had thought it was here but it was just a couple odd bits of bright red spotting (sorry tmi). So I am CD4 today and am sticking with the plan of just taking things easy this month. Got my CBFM sticks this week and ordered preseed as I'd tried conceive plus but thought we would see if this is just as good/better!
Jspods, good luck with the new regimen this month!
Alice, my spotting pattern is similar. It starts either a week before, or a couple of days prior to AF. My dh also brought up getting a SA recently. He's going to ask his dr. because mine (who's a fertility specialist) won't run any tests until we've been trying for a year (I'll be 32 next month). I've been off the pill for 9 months and we've been trying for 7.
This cycle has been strange. I O'd two days later than usual so I think it's pushing my AF back. Lately I've been having 26 day cycles, which means I would've gotten AF yesterday. Because I O'd late I'm thinking I'll get it tomorrow. I got a little excited when it didn't come yesterday even though I don't have a good feeling about this month. I tested this morning (11 dpo) and BFN!
