I was wearing nice pants and thong underwear (in order to avoid the dreaded VPL) today. I was on campus all day (it is 9:30PM and I just got home) and just realized that I am spotting. Thank goodness it just started, because it didn’t make a huge mess. However, it is still pretty alarming to spot red in the
middle of your cycle a week before your period is due.
I plugged the “spotting” into my fertility software and here is what it told me:
“Spotting at this time of your cycle may indicate (and let’s face it, MC, you are not all that lucky as far as fertility-related things go so you really should pretty much just ignore this) that you are pregnant. This is referred to as ‘implantation spotting’ and can occur when the fertilized egg burrows into the uterine wall (endometrium). You are in the post-ovulatory infertile phase of your cycle.”
Holy message. Holy uterine cramps. Holy mind fuck.
p.s. I am trying not to be upset that only two people want cool stuff from me. Come on people!! FREE STUFF!?!?
