How To Chart Spotting Or Quot Light Quot Bleeding

The Friday before Christmas I had red (tmi) when I wiped. I figured AF was on her way, so I put on a liner. Rest of day, barely enough to color the liner. Same thing Saturday and Sunday. Then, AF hit full blown Monday (nice it waited til after Christmas, I guess). On FF, would I chart those first three days as "spotting" or "light"? It totally changes my ovulation prediction. Any help is appreciated!!!

I would count it as spotting, personally. The same thing happens to me and I've cleared it up for me by charting temps. You can know for sure if it's only spotting since your temps will stay high. They should only drop the day before or the day of AF. Hope this helps!

Light bleeding would be considered part of af.

Just barely started...have three kids, soon to be trying for the fourth...want to know my body better...I never have light bleeding or spotting before my normal period...normally just hits HARD!!! So this was pretty unusual...i appreciate the info...and temping is a good idea. Just that my schedule isn't all that consistent with three little ones! Thanks again!!
