I'm new -- a question

I'm Caron and I have a 12 month old daughter. I've just started charting (this month) as I *think* we might like to TTC later this year and I wanted to know if I'm ovulating (daughter is still BF). Then I can decide whether to wean.

If I have CF (the egg white kind) is it likely that I will ovulate? Are the # of days of the egg white likely to be similar across cycles?

Welcome, Caron! I have a 12 month old also...Kristopher, born 3/22/02. Aren't they fun right now?

Welcome to the world of charting. Try to get 3 consecutive hrs of sleep before you temp. Doesn't happen for me though...I only observe cm/cp but that's ok since dh had a vas.

As for your EWCM questions...most likely O happens after you've had EWCM but it's not a guarantee that it will happen. That's why it's nice to have that temperature pattern to look at, as your body usually follows the pattern of rising cp, cm progressing to EW, and then O. O generally occurs the day after your most fertile day of cm. As for whether or not you'll have the same number of EWCM days from cycle to cycle, I guess it depends on how regular your cycles are. I think I had pretty much the same number of EW days but I never really counted them ;-)

Nice to have you here...hope you enjoy your stay here! Sue
