Midcycle Spotting *update

Well.... just to recap... I normally have a regular 31 day cycle and I started spotting (panty liner only) steadily since CD18. At first, the spotting was light brown, so ovulation seemed plausible. However, it didn't stop!!

My doctor was able to see me on day 9 of the bleed (which was only enough for liner but changed in colors brownish, pinkish then darker red). She ran some tests including a pelvic ultrasound on day 12 of the bleeding. Results came in and NOTHING was wrong. She said that the white tissue-like substance that I passed could have been a polyp that triggered a slow early period. But she really can't give me a reason besides a hormone imbalance. 

On the plus side, I now "know" my baby factory is working and after 16days, I stopped bleeding altogether.     Now, the problem is that I have NO CLUE which day of the bleeding to count as CD1!! I guess DH and I will just have to bd every day to try and catch the elusive eggie. lol it's gonna be one heck of a month! Bring it on month 9!! Good luck ladies!! 

Still Spotting ...sigh

I am now on day 11 of light bleed/spotting. (period actually due in 3 days! Psssht!:/) Saw the doc 2 days ago and while I still don't have a clear answer, I feel a bit better. She didn't see anything that was alarming during  exam and said it could just a random fluke but scheduled a pelvic ultrasound for tomorrow to rule out anything major anyway (endo, fibroids etc.)

A bit nervous, but hopeful it's just a hormonal imbalance. I had a weird white tissue-like thing that came out a few days before the dr appt which she said looked like it could've been a polyp... she didn't look concerned, so I'm trying not to think negative. If all goes well in my ultrasound, and my cycle doesnt right itself, she suggested giving me something to kick start a new one.

In the meantime, I'm supposed to keep taking prenatals. Fx'd everything goes well tomorrow. Hope u ladies are well. 

Just emotional

I am now on my 5th day of bleeding and am an emotional wreck!! Started on CD18 (of a 31 day cycle) and just when I think it's stopping there's a few more dark red spots on liner and a thin trail in toilet!! It's not enough for a tampon either tho(only 1/2 soaks in 2.5hrs) but I'm going crazy and find myself crying over absolutely anything for the past 2days!! Wish full blown AF would just show early already so we can start a new cycle. 

Just when you think you did everything right, something goes wrong... sorry... I try so hard to be optimistic all the time but some days things pile up and beat me down. 

Scheduling an appt soon to see where this random bleeding came from and we shall go from there. Negativity over!! Heads up ladies, and positive vibes...

CD 18-20... Light flow! Grrr wth

RECAP-Posted 4/30:

I normally have 31-35 day cycles and spot approximately 3-5 days before AF shows... I NEVER spot any earlier than that. Normal AF lasts about 4days -first 2very heavy(must change "super" tampon every 45-60mins.)  

I am currently on CD18 and noticed a little brown on tp when I wiped. I've never spotted this early but I think it's also too early to be implantation either. With a 31day cycle OD should be around CD17. Am I crazy?? Has anyone experienced spotting this early?? If so, what happened? Did af show crazy early??

UPDATE- Spotting (light brown continued CD18) panty liner was necessary. Spotting became more of a light flow (watery pinkish then dark red) CD19. Today CD20, I'm STILL bleeding!!(dark red). Could it really be OV spotting?? Just seems like too much for that! Ive had to change my liner and there's a light flow into toilet when I have to make shi shi.... Then again, I have nothing to compare it to... ugh, just SO frustrated. I thought I could have Ov'd earlier this cycle and now I don't know what to think. 

Anyway, just venting and was curious if this happened to anyone else. Not sure if I should expect AF on schedule 5/13 or if this is it. Will keep track and make Dr. appt if it doesn't I guess. Sad face. Good Luck to everyone else! 

CD18 spotting??

I normally have 31-35 day cycles and spot approximately 3-5 days before AF shows... I NEVER spot any earlier than that. 

I am currently on CD18 and noticed a little brown on tp when I wiped. I've never spotted this early but I think it's also too early to be implantation either. With a 31day cycle OD should be around CD17. Am I crazy?? Has anyone experienced spotting this early?? If so, what happened? Did af show crazy early?? 

Anyone ever experience swollen vaginal walls??

Sorry if this is tmi... but this was just so different for me. At 6dpo I went to check my cm only to find it really strange, swollen and squishy in there! Lol Hard to explain... no itching, pain or unusual smell. Just wondering if thats "normal" for some woman. 

Thought it might have been implantation since I also had a huge temp dip that shot back up next day but not anymore. I'm now 11dpo and against my better judgement, took a test this am w FMU... bfn. Pretty sure I'm not, but was curious if I should add swollen walls to my list of possible pms. Lol thx, gl ladies!!
