If you are TTC (trying to conceive), you are most likely paying close attention to the changes in your body throughout your cycle. It is often small changes such as sore breasts or abdominal twinges that give us a gut feeling that we may be pregnant, even before the pregnancy test confirms it for us.
One pregnancy indicator can actually be spotting or light bleeding 5-10 days after ovulation. At first you may think you are about to get your period a week early, but it will never fully show itself. Instead, you will notice a pinkish discharge after you wipe. This usually only happens for 1-3 days and can be confusing or alarming to some women.
However, this may be implantation spotting/bleeding, and it happens to about 20% of all women who go on to become pregnant. The spotting occurs when the embryo imbeds itself into the uterine wall.
So if you notice some very light, mid-cycle bleeding, you may be on your way to a BFP (big fat positive)!
