So, my BBT has been steadily climbing since Tuesday (CD 14). It was 97.86 on Tuesday, 98.20 on Wednesday and 98.48 today, but when I went to the bathroom this morning I had some spotting. It was pinky red in color and not really a lot on the paper. My husband and I BDed on Saturday, Monday night and Tuesday morning. I've also had some back pain on and off the last two days, and I had a dull ache/pain on my right side. Could this spotting be mid-cycle bleeding? Or is this the start of a new cycle?
If your BBT is rising, then probably this was an ovulation bleed or spotting. If you conceived, the BBT will continue to rise and remain risen at a particular level. If you do not conceive, it will fall back to pre-ovulation level. You can take a pregnancy test after 14 days of CD14. Take care!
