Cycle question (maybe TMI)

Hi Ladies,

I thought AF showed this morning which is way early.  I'm CD 26 today, usual cycle is 30 days.  When I wiped after using the bathroom this AM there was blood with a lot of mucus (TMI sorry) so I was yet again disappointed that I was not pregnant.  I also had taken an HPT with FMU about an hour prior and got a BFN :(  Anyway, on several more trips to the restroom there was just a hint of brown looking old blood on the toilet tissue.  So now I'm nervous, this happened back in March when I had an ectopic, I had what I thought was my cycle but it was very light and only 2 days and then 2 weeks later I was pg and losing the baby.   So my question is, is this possible spotting prior to AF starting?  I have never spotted before AF so I'm not sure if it's normal to have brownish spotting or if it's something else.  I know, I sound like a crazed idiot, sorry, I just don't want to be pg and not know and then another possible ectopic.  It's amazing how losing a baby can make you so overly anxious about everything. 

If anyone has any advice it's appreciated, thank you for reading if you got this far!

    I thought implantation spotting like the PP. However, I understand your apprehension. I've had two miscarriages and if I ever get pregnant again I will be freaking out at every little thing I'm sure. Wait a few days and if your cycle doesn't start take another test. Good luck!

    Baby #1 due 2/10/14!

    If it is implantation, I would suggest waiting two days for the HCG to build up in your system and test again.

    Fingers crossed for you--KUP!

    Yep this.  Do you know how many DPO you are? 

    I'm not sure why you would start spotting suddenly but that also sounds like the kind of spotting I have prior to AF.

    I started Clomid 50mg this cycle and while I had a slight shift in BBT I had no + OPKs this month so this is where I am totally  confused.  I'm not really sure if I O'd or not.  According to FF there was no ovulation noted :(  Not wanting to get my hopes up only to be disappointed.

    I had that problem with Clomid - no positive OPK+ for me either.  On my own, I've always gotten a positive OPK+.  But, the software I use for charting detected a temperature shift and says I did ovulate, so I guess I must've missed the surge and it must've been really quick!  I use FF as a back-up and it didn't find my ovulation date either.  So, it's very possible you did ovulate.  Good luck!
