Well its one day before AF and I just went to the restroom and noticed some spotting and when I wiped. It was a browish color mixed with a pinkish looking color. :(

Good or bad thing? I've never really noticed spotting though. I only would have a serious cramp go check and will have a full flow. So I'm still tryna be postivie but I kno some of the ladies here had spotting and then the next day or even a few hours came the witch.. Defense!!!!

Not always, but most of the time I do. I used to not though. Not sure why it started happening, but its really annoying. I'm putting another call into my doc to recheck progesterone, because low progesterone is one of the main reasons to spot before AF from what I understand. However, for some people, it can be normal.

I find it so odd that so many of us are spotting before AF. I NEVER spotted before, and for the last 4 months I have had spotting before AF. How weird is that???

The only thing I'm doing different is taking prenatals and of course obsessing.......maybe my obsessive brain is causing my body to give me a warning or something!?!!

Unfortunately I agree with everything Suz says. I never used to spot either but now I usually do a few days before af arrives. The last few cycles were pink & icky brown but this time it was light pink & then light red & the next day full on af. I've got bloodwork scheduled for this month so hopefully I'll get some answers...

Fx'd af doesn't show for you...

I'm sorry...I know it stinks. I have gone through this spotting almost every month while TTC, and I get so angry/sad/depressed every time because I feel like I don't even get a chance to get pregnant because it starts around 8DPO for me.

I know TTC is hard, and only you know the right decision for you, but maybe give it a few days and see how you feel then. Good luck to you!
