EWCM Question?

Okay so, since I started charting, I have yet to notice EWCM. My cervical mucus pattern usually goes from sticky, to creamy, to wet, and then back to creamy after O.

Well tonight I noticed EWCM! I BD'ed of course, but I'm wondering if this is really O. This would be early for me. My CBEFM says my fertility is high, but not peak. I took an OPK and it was negative, but I think it may have been expired. So I'm going to take a CVS brand after I hold my pee for about an hour.

If this was O, I'm super paranoid because a lot of the semen came out! And I know 5 million people have told me "that's totally normal" I am still super paranoid that the semen came out too quickly... haha grr I don't know. EWCM experiences please ladies!

For me EWCM lasts 2 or 3 days before O. So that may be why OPK is - and fertility is not peak. I bet in the next couple days it'll all line up.

For some women, EWCM is a text book cm but they never really get it. It puts a lot of pressure on us to be what the text book says we should have. I would have it some months and other months not so much. However, like you, I would have the watery cm which is still a great vehicle for the boys to get where they are going. As long as I was using an OPK, I'd know when I was ovulating. Cervical position helps as well.

If you are concerned about a lack of CM, you could try preseed. Some women don't care for it, but I'll say that I used it after 8 months of trying and the 2nd month, I did get pregnant. Another thing you could try would be to drink 2 cups of Green Tea each day from AF until O. I found that it helped a lot and I know it helps a lot of other women increase their CM so they can find that EWCM. Just don't drink any after O.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the input everyone!

Mrs K- Hope you're doing well. :) And I do hope that is what happens over the next few days. I'll keep ya posted.

Lovin- I'm hoping that is what happens with me. This is my first cycle using the monitor so I'm not sure what to expect with it.

Sailorsbelle- I did start using my preseed today! And, I did increase my green tea intake since I got AF. I read that online and decided to try it so I guess it did make an impact! That's so exciting! Haha.

Lex - did you get your positive opk yet? I just wanted to let you know that I had ewcm on 13 and 14 dpo and got my positive opk last night on 15 dpo. This is by far the earliest I've ever been. Usually I'm day 17-21. Hope you get your positive today!

Thanks! :) My test line got significant darker this morning, it looked *almost* positive. I'm gonna take another tonight and see what happens.

This is early for me too! But I can't complain, it's boring waiting 3 weeks for O. Haha.

Nice! I am so pumped about early o'ing... I'm always coveting the girls that O on day 14 religiously. ;) Hey, day 16 ain't so bad either.

Yeah, I took an opk at 7 pm last night and it was almost positive. Took another one at 10 pm and it was super positive. So, keep on testing!
