Part Sticky/Part EWCM?

Oh the joys of charting CM! 

While going to the bathroom just now, I noticed what can only be described as part sticky/part EWCM CM.  Is that EVEN possible?  It does stretch a good inch or two (not as much as when I'm closer to O) but it has some elasticity to it that makes me think it is sticky, too.  Should I record as EWCM?  I'm on CD 9.  My temps are where they should be for this part of my cycle.  Either way I know I should BD.  Sounds silly but then the next day or so after BD I get confused on my CM because it can be close to the consistency of seminal fluid.  AHHH I'm driving myself crazy.

What do you think?

Record it as EWCM, with a note that it wasn't your most fertile cm.  As for the "leftovers" that make it difficult to differentiate your true cm, you can do Kegels to expel it quicker, and you can also put the fluid in water.  If it breaks apart, it's semen.  If it stays in a clump, it's ewcm.  Or so I've heard ;-)
