Ovulation spotting and OPKs

A little background info: I usually have 25-26 day cycles, O around CD13, spotting pre and post AF, I usually have GOBS of fertile CM for 1-3 days pre AF. This month I had a hard time determining CD 1 thanks to spotting issues, so I am either CD11, 12, or 13 today. I took a cheap target OPK on the 27th, 28th, and 29th, all were negative. I had ovulation-type cramping on the left side yesterday, and EWCM, but since I had a negative OPK, we didn't dtd last night (I was exhausted, DH has been sick, etc). This morning my temp was pretty low and I had ovulation spotting ( which I've never had before). I'm thinking maybe I missed the LH surge and should have had a positive OPK yesterday:(. Any experience with ovulation spotting? Does it occur on the day of ovulation or on the day before? I'm afraid I'm Oing NOW, and I don't get home from work until late this evening--I'm afraid we've missed the egg this month...

Just bd as soon as you can -they say the egg can live up to 12 hours (maybe longer) so you're not out yet. I'm not sure about the timing of O spotting & actual o, but I would guess it could go either way. Did you have ewcm today or just yesterday?

3-4 days of fertile cm is awesome! Bd your little bums off ;) I'm happy the comment about ewcm was a typo -I was gonna say something about getting your hormones checked but didn't want to stress you out pre-O, especially if you were already stressed you might have missed it!

Go catch that Eggie! Fx'd for a beautiful temp jump soon :)
