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.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
