O pains and CM questions

Hi guys. On AVERAGE my cycles are around 30 days. Half the time they are 28 or a little less...the other times 30-32 days....every once in awhile over 35 (I teach fitness classes many days twice a day so I get long breaks without AF sometimes) DH and I were on vacation these past two weeks. A lot less exercise and more food. LOL! We DTD at 11pm on CD 11. On CD 14 I had very strong stabby twinges on my left ovary for most of the day. On day 13 I had one wipe of what seemed like slick clear CM but that was it. Maybe semen? Maybe EWCM?? Ever since it has been white/thick/hardly there. I'm a teeny tiny bit crampy today. If my cycle was it's "average" 30 days we would have BD the night before my first fertile day. Do

Well unfortunately sore boobs and cramps can be part of AF coming. I'm not ttc and definitely not pg and my boobs have been tender for a couple of days...so about 9 days before I expect AF. Now, if the cramps you're feeling are at the side...that could be different. Did you have round ligament pain with your first pregnancy? I had it a couple of times with my first baby, and started feeling them at just 3 days past conception with my ds. You know, that pulling catch-y sharp pain to one side of your uterus, especially if you stand after you've been sitting a while or you sneeze or cough. Only felt in pregnancy. Yea, for me I felt those very very early, way before he could possibly have implanted. So odd. Well that whole cycle was an odd one, LOL.

Good luck! I hope what you're feeling is a good sign!

Well there's always a chance, if you BD during your fertile window. It's quite possible that you had a whole lot more EWCM than just the "swipe" that made it to the TP. I usually have tons of EW internally but very little externally. (If you want to check internally, squat down and insert a finger or two...you should be able to feel your cervix that way so you can check your cervix and at the same time see what EW there is.)

As for O pain, it's actually not a completely reliable fertility sign. It can occur up to several days before or after O...and you may feel it on one side when in fact you were O'ing from the opposite side. So, without seeing a chart to know what your temps were doing, I can only say that it *sounds* like it lines up with your cm dry-up.

And yes, there's a chance. &&&Fingers crossed&&& for you!
