I'm not sure if this has been asked before. I'm just curious. I have had such a hard time temping due to my DS waking at all hours of the night recently. Doing an OPK may work but I've tried one once (years ago) and I remember that being a pain and expensive. This past cycle with my spikey temps it was hard to tell when I "O". BUT I had great EWCM during the time that I would normally "O". I base that on when I charted while TTC both #1 and #2. So can you go by CM as an indication that you're ovulating? Or not? AF's dog Spot found me today anyway. I'm just hoping next cycle goes better.

the answer is ... yes. You can have ewcm and NOT ovulate. That's why just checking cm isn't a good way to find out you are ovulating.

Have you thought about buying something like the the saliva microsopes? That's a cheap option.
