Pregnant after IF

If you usually spotted before AF, did you spot the cycle you received your BFP?

DH and I have been TTC for 15 cycles. Each cycle, I usually spot 2-3 days before AF rears her nasty face. Each month it makes this TTC roller-coaster ride even worse. I get depressed that I'm out, then try to convince myself maybe it's late implantation bleeding or perhaps decidual bleeding, then get my hopes up again only to be crushed when AF shows. I still spot even when on Progesterone supplements, so I guess it's just something my body decided to start doing after ending BCP over 3 years ago! I was wondering if those of you who have been blessed with pregnancy and usually spotted prior to your AFs also spotted before your BFPs. I'm hoping to slow my TTC Rollercoaster ride down each month! Thanks for any guidance!
Married to DH 10/6/12
TTC since 5/14
Unexplained with (controlled) hypothyroidism and suspected ovulatory dysfunction (but, I do ovulate on my own)
Clomid 50 mg 3/15 (unmonitored) - BFN
Clomid 50 mg + metformin 4/15 (unmonitored) - BFN 
First RE appt. 5/15; Natural cycle 5/15 monitored with 2 mature follicles and Pregnyl Trigger (full dose) + prometrium - BFN
6/15 HSG - clear tubes & normal uterus; great PCT test results
TI - 100 mg Clomid + prometrium (AM & PM) + vaginal estrace (AM & PM) 6-7/15 (monitored) --> no additional response and thinned lining - BFN
TI - Injectables (follistim + Gonal-F, Ganirelix, & 1/2 dose Pregnyl) + prometrium (AM & PM) 9/15 --> 3-7 mature follicles (3 definites and 4+ that could have matured due to trigger) @ O -->BFN + 5 large cysts
BC for 2 weeks due to cysts
TI - Injectables (Gonal-F, Ganirelix & full dose Pregnyl) + prometrium (AM & PM) 10/15 --> 1 mature follicle --> BFN 
TI - Last attempt at injectables (Gonal-F, Ganirelix & 1/2 dose Pregnyl) + crinone (AM only) + vaginal estrace (AM & PM) 11/15 --> 3-4 mature follicles --> BFP!! 11/27/15 @ 13dpo (shockingly, actually waited until then to test)

Beta #1 @ 16dpo (11/30/15) = 1,075
Beta #2 @ 19dpo (12/3/15) = 3,150
One baby: Saw heartbeat @ 5w5d (114 bpm; baby measuring 2.3mm)
