Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic,
Yes occasionally light spotting does occur a day before expected period and it is normal.The bleeding can occur in few females at the time of ovulation and not during implantation.

Is light spotting one or two days before the expected period a normal thing?

Normally my periods are regular but since we have been ttc i have started to spot and cramp a bit five days before my expected period on two occasions. We have been ttc for 8 months and this has happened two of those months. The first time my period came normal flow on the 28 day after spotting on and off for the five days previous to that. This time i just started spotting and cramping today but period not due until the 10th. What could this be if anything?
