egg white discharge with specks of blood in it "normal" before period? (posted in ttc also)

my husband and i are ttc. i was fertile according to ovulation kit and physical symptoms around may 23. i am due a period saturday. several preg tests indicate negative. tues and wed i had egg white discharge with a few specks of blood in it. it was thin and otherwise clear, not clumpy or thick. it came off on toilet paper (sorry tmi). i am not hurting cramping itching bleeding or otherwise uncomfortable. called my obgyn's office and the receptionist indicated this is normal before a period. in 17 years of periods i've never had that happen. i did have the egg white discharge very early in both of my pregnancies though, but it didnt have the blood specks in it. anyone else experience this?

  • my first pregnancy and 3rd pregnancy I had this. I would wait a few days a take another test...or go in for a blood test. Blood tests are much more sensitive. also my 4th pregnancy and last, I had taken tests even the early prediction ones, all came up negative even after being 3 days late.
    5 days after I was late I about puked over the smell of some cheetoes my husband was eating...That was how I knew I was pregnant with my son!

  • thanks, that really makes me hopeful! i'm trying not to get too excited but i know it's definitely not something i've experienced with a period ever before.
