I know that clomid dries some gals out -could explain the lack of ewcm. Maybe drink extra ewcm'y producing drinks like green tea, grapefruit juice or V8?

Ok, this is probably a dumb question, but...I took this trigger shot last night at 7:30, so I guess I'll ovulate probably by Friday morning. My question is before the trigger shot I hadn't noticed any cervical mucus yet prob b/c I normally wouldn't ovulate till past cd20, so isn't it going to be hard for the sperm to get where it needs to be w/out ewcm? I guess I am assuming maybe the trigger shot will help start producing some ewcm? Hm. Anyway, we bd last night night and hopefully will the next 2 nights. I'm just not sure about this whole trigger shot and lack of ewcm when we're doing timed intercourse and not IUI. I can see why you wouldnt need ewcm w/IUI, but don't you need it with timed intercourse? haha, I am probably WAY overthinking this.

My dr told me that the trigger would make you ovulate in 24 hours, but that may have been an average. I would BD 3 nights in a row, just to cover your bases;-)

I should ovulate any day now -most likely today. Luckily my body is pretty consistent in O'ing cd11 or 12. Ewcm yesterday & crampy today.

Lol -it must have been a shock for dh to jump back on the bd train! I really hope the trigger seals the deal for you guys. Bring on the Christmas bfps :)

It would be nice to know for sure when to BD with certainty that you will O within that window. FX'd that you get your sticky bean and that it stays sticky!

Awesome! When are you expecting to ovulate? When I told DH it was bd time he's like....didn't we just barely do this? haha, I'm like no....this is a normal cycle length, unlike waiting to O for like 36 days, :)

My husband is going to give it to me tonight! Dr. said to bd tonight and tomorrow night....does that sound good? I wonder if we should bd friday night too... Isn't the trigger supposed to make you ovulate within 36 hours?
