Question

Implantation spotting or light *early* period

Just looking to see if anyone else has a similar experience. I had my first period, post baby, from July 6-7th. I'm pretty sure that I ovulated on the 21st (cycle day 16) but then on the evening of the 25th (4dpo; cd20) I began to spot. I spotted for 4 days (4-7dpo/CD 20-23) and almost 0 cramping. It never got heavy and I only had to use a medium liner. Color ranged from pink-red-brown (sorry tmi). I've had 4 children and I have never spotted mid cycle, even in the first few cycles post baby. My norm is my cycles to start out further apart, then gradually go back to 26-28 days. Anyway, I'm at a complete loss and don't know if this was heavier ovulation spotting, a crazy cycle, or if it's implantation. There is a very slight chance that we could have conceived, but not a big one as we're not actively trying right now. Any advice would help, because it's very much out of my norm.
