you need to buy a bbt thermometer jet. most pharmacies ought to have them but I remember none of the ones around my area did and I ended up ordering one in (well the kindly pharmacist ordered one in for me). mine was $14.95. you need a special bbt thermo as they're sensitive enough to detect temps to 2 decimal places. you basically check your temps at the same time every day as soon as you wake up. like literally, open your eyes and get the thermo in yore gob. don't get up, go to the toilet etc. it needs to be your resting body temp. and it needs to have been after at least 3 hours of sleep (but if you toss and turn and have the odd crap nights sleep well what can you really do). so I set my alarm for 6am each morning (for work) and just temp when it goes off. if I snooze after then that's fine but it's basically my bbt alarm. you also need to temp on weekends so you'd need to set your alarm for the same time. I've slacked off temping lately but will start again from tomo. I'm on cd 9 now so will continue temping til I'm sure I've ovulated.

this kind of cervical mucus (cm) is most friendly to sperm and facilitates it swimming up and meeting your egg to say g'day. it's alkaline and doesn't kill the sperm.
at other times of the month, your cm will be gluey or sticky etc...this is more acidic and hostile towards sperm and not ideal for conceiving.
watery cm is also ok but not as ideal as ewcm.

Ok cool I don't think I have ever seen this (I wasn't looking for it either I guess lol)

Throughout your cycle you will have different types of cervial mucus.
When you are reaching your fertile phase your cm will change to ewcm, which is the same look as egg whites. You may notice it when you wipe after going for a wee. Once your cm changes to a creamy, thick gluggy consistency then it is safe to say you have finish ovulating.
Don't worry i didn't know any of this when we first started ttc
@cuky Keeping everything crossed for you! Hope this is your month!
