So I've been waiting for the ovulation and nothing. Then this afternoon I've started spotting. What the....? I'm only on CD22. Has anyone else experienced this? My cycles are usually around 30. My projected O date was earlier this week, my temps have been low but I don't get this.

Have you been checking for "O" with OPKs?

I've been dieting, low fat food nothing serious. More of eating healthier. I didn't use the OPK this time and thought I would just rely on the signs which seemed to coincide with FF prediction. But to start my period at CD22 is not normal for me a bit early, and there was no warning, no cramping tender breast, nothing like that. AF was just here on the 1st (lucky me).

Implantation bleeding crossed my mind but I thought it was too soon to be that. However, today, my temp rose, but I didn't take it at the normal time. Mainly because I forgot and was still kinda bummed from the day before so I wasn't thinking about it. Ok, a little tmi, I'm still wearing a pad just in case and there was nothing on it and when I wiped, it was brown. I've just never experienced this before. So here's another question, if I O'd the same day I bd, could the time frame be shorter for implantation? As stated earlier, there is also the possibility that this may be an anovulatory cycle which doesn't make me happy. I don't know I'm going through a bunch of emotions. My 25th high school reunion is coming this year which made me feel old and the thought of going through menopause (because of this weird cycle) didn't help. The thought of never having another baby didn't help either, brought me to tears eventhough we aren't really trying. I'm just hoping it happens with a little nudging from me. My husband thinks he's too old but he's not doing anything to make sure it doesn't happen, for instance, he's not wearing a condom. I know, the emotions are all over the place. Sorry for rambling.
