    Hi Kristi! I'm going to be the first to take you up on your offer!

    Well, last week around thursday i should've been ovulating. I'm not temping and don't have much CM to speak of, so I'm just basing that on my cycle length - thursday was day 16 out of a 30 day cycle.

    So now, I'm in the dreaded 2WW. On Monday (day 19) i got a huge glob of cloudy white CM, not at all "stretchy", actually it reminded me a bit of thrush. Eeewww!

    DH and I BD (you have to cover your bases, I know...) but now I'm wondering if it could be an early sign that we got the eggy? Wishful thinking, i know! What do you think?

    Hi Kristi - you little CM expert you!

    I have a little question - I always seem to get EWCM the week leading up to Bruce - eventhough I have already ovulated around CD15 (29 day cycles). Is that normal?

    Also, after O and EWCM days - I seem to get CM that is kinda 'claggy' it's clear but it seems to stick together in a clump - does anyone get that?

    Ok - so maybe it was 2 little questions!

    Watch for changes in Cervical Mucus You can detect ovulation by watching for changes in your cervical mucus. Your cervical mucus increases in volume and changes texture as your monthly cycle progresses. At the beginning of the menstrual cycle, the mucus is sparse, cloudy, tacky and dense, and when you ovulate this fluid becomes more plentiful, clear and slippery. The consistency of fluid when you are ovulating is described as being the consistency of raw egg white.
    Fertile signs


    Cervical mucus: this is a reliable way to know when you are fertile. The secretions become slippery, elastic, and egg white in character.
    Cervix: By feeling the cervix at the same time each day you can tell when you are fertile. When it is high, soft, and open, this is your fertile time.
    Basal Body Temperature: Don't become obsessive about this. Pregesterone causes a rise in temperature of about 0.2 degrees celcius immediately after ovulation. This should remain high until menses begin. Other conditions cause raises in temperature; infections, stress, medication, drinking alcohol, of lack of sleep. A temperature that is consistantly below 36 degrees celcius during the follicular phase may indicate an underactive thyroid (lethargy, weight gain, sensitivity to cold). A high temperature before ovulation may indicate an overactive thyroid. If your temperature does not change throughout, it may point to a luteal phase defect, or that you may not be ovulating.
    LH surge: This takes place just before the egg is released. Some women ovulate immediately after the surge. Do not wait to have intercourse. These are kits that come with sticks you urinate on daily.
    Sex Drive: This is a simple and wonderful indicator of your fertile time. When you want it, go get it!




    hopefully that helps!
