  • December 2-7 was a normal cycle for me. I ovulated on the 16th of December. I was sexually active on the 8th, 11th, 14th and 25th of December. Then I had another period that started on the 30th -Jan. 5th. Which seemed normal until I started spotting on the 6-8. Am I pregnant? Which LMP should I use to Calculate in my pregnancy tracker? When should I get a HPT?? Symtoms: Fever-fluctuating Soar stomach and light tenderness to breast Spotting Urinating more frequently Constipation

    Please, I need an answer.

    to The Baby Corner.

    That seems pretty normal to me. The average menstural cycle happens every 28 days, with ovulation happening about every 14 days. The first day of your period is Day 1, so if your period started on Dec. 2, you'd ovulate on Dec. 16 and your next period would start on Day 28 (Dec. 30). That's pretty textbook perfect, friend.

    You'd start counting your LMP on Dec. 30 for this next cycle. If your cycle follows the same suit as last month, you can expect to ovulate around Jan. 13 and test around Jan. 27.
