Hope this is the right place to ask. We aren't TTC#2 yet, but hope to in the next few months. I am trying to keep track of my cycles so when the time comes we have an idea of when I am ovulating.
I have had af back since DD was 13 weeks old (despite being solely bf) and the first 5 or so, as the ones before her, would start off heavy on day 1 & 2, then medium, then lighter for days 4 & 5.
Lately I have been getting 2-4 days worth of spotting (enough for a liner) before AF starts becoming heavy.
Would you count the first day of spotting as CD1? or not until AF becomes heavier? I am still bfing DD so cycle days are anywhere between 31 & 39 days from when being heavy. They used to be 35 every cycle before she was b-orn

Day 1 is first day of flow not spotting. Technically, if flow starts after lunch, day 1 is the next day

As above except I use 3pm for the cut off rather than 12.

I go from the first flow day irrespective of what time it starts. My cycles are kind of erratic at the moment so 12 hours does not make much difference to me.
