    I never really notice ewcm at a particular time. Only normal 'wetness' when having sex- sorry for the tmi but just wanted to reassure you. I found OPK's the best way for me to pinpoint ovulation.

    Don't tell anyone else just make it a special time for you and DH. Other people really have no idea how these comments can make you feel! They are obviously bitter about something- who is to say your parenting journey will be anything like that? Not to brag but I got plenty of sleep with my DS. All babies/pregnancies/parents are different.

    Wow. That's a bit harsh! What on earth made them feel justified to do that to you two?

    Ignore it, hun. They're obviously unhappy themselves and in that situation, you'll never be able to convince them otherwise. *hug*

    They told me that it's a huge step ( do I look stupid) and said they weren't trying to be rude but do I have health insurance ( they don't!) do I have thousands saved, have I thought about a check up and how I will get no sleep and her and her boyfriend were rock solid before a child and the first year almost broke them and he cried for 3 months straight. But it's fun. Then told me about orange sized clots and you can die.... But it's fun. I regret ever saying anything and now I fear she will go tell everyone which I don't want. The first reaction was. :-I really? So put off

    Crafmy: we have the same issues with my inlaws. . We have had a general talk..i would not tell them before i am 3 mokths pregnant as they dont understand.. they dont really like me and think am a gold digger, what do i know about kids? I must be stupid.. then i tell them i was an aupair for 3 kids in the states, show them my bank statement and tell them to not talk about how useless and stupid o am ever again. . Also said that if i ever have kids and they dont put in an effort to accept me than they wont be seing their future grand kids much.. so much effort. .and it hurts as i am norwegian and have all mu family back in norway.. his family is all i have so i do everuthing i can for them to like me.. but am not gonna sit there watching them treat me like ****.. its hard.. but thank god for supportive dp and friends♥

    All the best to u.. everyone know parenting is hard but most people also say they would never go back. I wish u all the best and am sure u and ur partner will be great parents, and thatcthe family will change their attitude

    We will be facing disapproval also, but I know ultimately the news will be accepted and then enjoyed. Just gotta get through all the stupid questions just like above. Are you sure you're ready, this is a big step, you don't understand what you're doing etc. they won't know until we are actually utd, but we will tell them fairly early still. I know DHs mother will be initially against it, but really she just wants us to be happy. When she comes around she will be ecstatic.

    Ewcm is an indication that you are ovulating, but no ewcm doesn't mean you're not ovulating. In saying that, it is an aid for the sperm so when u are ttc maybe consider a lube to help replicate it if you don't produce it. Don't ever use normal lube though as that kills sperm.

    Aw hun please don't get disheartened. She is projecting her experiences onto you which is not fair and unrealistic.

    Ladies who are first time ttc be prepared for lots more of what crafty is experiencing- everybody has their 2c when it comes to pregnancy/parenting. Just take what you want from their advice and leave the rest- it's your own journey
