Confused

AF started for me on Tuesday, so thought for sure that was it. But so far, AF has been very very strange. I had one episode of pink spotting/bleeding but only when i wiped and it was once. Otherwise, i've either had nothing, or slight brown spotting. No cramping. Today is day 3 for me, which is usually my heaviest day, if i still get only the brown spotting or nothing at all, i might take another test tomorrow morning. Any advice or thoughts?

Hmmm. My af came along on feb 5th, and was light, not bad cramping very mild. What seemed unusual to me, was 3 days before it came I had a trickle of pinkish blood which stained when i wiped. Then it went away up until af started. The past 2 days I've felt mild nausea on and off. Very weird. Sounds like your period symtoms look interesting as well. It could be pregnancy. Try taking a test.

Looks like it's taking its time lol. It doesn't sound like it was a full flow so I wouldn't even call that cd1. When's the last time you tested?

Well, that is normally how my CD1 starts. For me, my flow is usually like this- CD1 light brown/pink, CD2- red with some small clots, but not heavy, CD3- heavy flow, red , CD4- medium (like CD2) CD5/6 light brown spotting. Sometimes i don't even make it to CD 6.

last time i tested was Monday with the FRER i posted.

Hmm not sure, I'd test again just to rule out a late implanter.

well, i just went through my temps on my Ava, and they are dropping since I "started" on Tuesday. Maybe i'm just having an odd cycle. Spotting seems to be picking up, although its still brown, no red at all.

Update- I guess CD4 has decided to be the new CD3. I'm having a fairly heavy flow today. Temp has steadily dropped since Tuesday when the spotting started. Here's to next month!
