Trying to conceive

Above is a snap of my cycle tracker. I ovulated on the 5th Nov, HOPEFULLY conceived on the 6th Nov & yesterday (11DPO) was my AF due date when I started getting what I believed to be Implantation Bleeding. I am testing on Friday 20th if the spotting I am getting doesn't come to anything.
4-10DPO: I experienced a thick creamy discharged that was either light pink or light brown/tan coloured. My BBT has stayed elevated throughout this time & ranges from 36.7c - 37.0c. I've had niggly little cramps, some breast tenderness & frequent urination this week however I don't believe any of these symptoms to be necessarily related to pregnancy, its just what I was feeling.
11-12DPO(now): I had no symptoms all day yesterday & then at bedtime 9PM I experienced a small amount of pink/dark red & some light brown spotting. It was only a couple of drops on the toilet paper. What made me check was the AF like cramps which weren't like the niggly ones I got before, they're like AF cramps but weren't as intense. For me when I hit the first day of AF when its full flow & heavy, I get severe cramps. These were the same feeling only less painful/ intense. Today I experienced dark brown/black discharge when wiping but then it disappeared & some little drops of dark red/brown blood appeared & again disappeared - this spotting is very intermittent. My breasts don't seem bigger but my nipples seem to have doubled in size & are purple in colour. There are definitely noticeable blue veins on my breasts today & they feel tender (my partner was joking around & tried hitting my playfully in the boob, I turned round & slapped him one! LOL they were surprisingly sore!).
So far that's my story & this spotting is definitely not like my regular AF. Its very light & it comes & go. Whereas my AF shows me dark brown discharge 4 days before & then is very bright red heavy, incredibly painful & knocks me for six!
In regards to Implantation Bleeding I know a lot of people reading this will say you cannot get implantation bleeding on the DAY your meant to get your period but I believe you can from what I've seen. Implantation could have happened days before & the bleeding is only trickling out of me now as it takes time for the blood to be expelled from the body. A lot of women have said they've gotten IB around the time they expected their period. Due to my spotting being so light I am hopeful yet!
Please comment below & tell me all your experiences. If anyone has had a BFP tell me your story & congratulations!
