Question about AF

I think AF is starting Sad I got a question. Yesterday I kind of felt icky and when i wiped a couple of times there was just a little red. Not enough for a pad. I mean just a little. The same thing today. I think its AF coming on. SO would I say that my period started yesterday? Last month my period only had a heavy flow like 2 days. It did kind of like it is starting this month. Just a little trace then it was heavy. So I am wondering when I am doing a ovulation prediction thing if I have been putting my period down wrong. Any thoughts on this.

I usually count from the first day of heavy or regular flow. If it is light enough that I'm not sure it's AF then its spotting in my book and doesn't count. For example I would probably put tomorrow as when it started, provided flow does increase tomorrow. What do you use to predict Ovulation?

My RE counts day 1, as the first day of heavy flow. If the heavy flow starts after 6pm, he counts the next day as cd1 (not really sure why?)
Based on that, doesn't sound like you have hit cd1 yet
