Hello all,

I am new to the board and I know this would sound strange, but what do you count as CD1 is it the first day you notice spotting or the first day of real menstrual flow? I appreciate the help TTC #2, I have a 5 year old girl and she came as a surprise fro DH and I. :)

Welcome to the board Lola! You would count day 1 to be the first day you have bleeding, not spotting: http://www.ivillage.com/what-normal-menstrual-cycle/4-n-127784

We have an ovulation calculator if you want to try it out: http://www.ivillage.com/ovulation-calculator-fertility-calendar?ice=iv:mb:msg:mm

Good luck!
