Bleeding between period? Ovulation? Implantation?

Hi all! I am 29 years old - my husband and I just starting trying to get pregnant. My last period started nov 27 and my cycles are usually 29-30 days. Next one is due dec 27. We have had intercourse the past several days as I am due for ovulation. Late last night I got some spotting, very light, and that has continued today with light cramping. I never get spotting between periods and it's making me a little nervous... What could this be?! Thanks for any help!!!!

you wrote this a few days ago so im wondering how you are going? have you had any more spotting?
spotting around the time you had it sounds like it could be ovulation spotting but you will need to wait a few more days to take a test to see :)

Thank you for your response. The spotting lasted 2 days off and on. Since then I have had (sorry for tmi) gas, constipation, loss of appetite, major bloating, and mild cramping in my lower belly - off and on but every day. Took a test today but got a negative. Very sad but I still have 7 days until my period. Hard not to be discouraged though..

i know the feeling but dont be too discouraged until your period actually shows up... its not over till then :) between now and then, act like you are pregnant and do everything as if you would if you knew you were pregnant :) do a test on the day of your missed period and if its still neg, wait another couple of days-pref 3 n if still no period try again...
good luck! let me know how you go :)

Here's a little update. I have had symptoms off and on for the few weeks following ovulation. Same as my post above and also mild heartburn and nausea. AF is due today. Nothing so far though I did have some AF like cramps this morning. We shall see what happens. I will update either way.. Fingers crossed!!

I had the same thing call it odd but the pregnancy test showed positive before all other test had. I am spotting now an taking my test tomorrow but all your signs I will say yes u are as I had them with my daughter. Take the more sensitive dollar store test that needs just very little of the hormone and I am sure ur results will show. The other more expensive test do not show positive till 4WKS but the dollar store test showed right after spotting, Good luck
