O Symptoms - When did I O??
Sat, 02-25-2012 - 10:35pm
Ok I'm confused on when I might have ovulated, so I can't figure out how many dpo I am. Here is a breakdown of my history...

Cycle 1 was 28 days
Cycle 2 was 27
Cycle 3 was 30 and AF arrived on 2/8

Cycle 4 - used opks this month starting on 2/16. Was light or negative until 2/20 when it got a little darker, 2/21 was a little darker, 2/22 was definitely darker but not a 100% match. That was my last test.

Breasts - sore starting 2/21 or 2/22, really sore and painful 2/23, 2/24 just a bit sore and kinda ok today, 2/25.

CM - was taking Zyrtec 2/18 through 2/21. Noticed lots of cm on 2/23 and a bit on 2/24.

I assume I Od 2/23, but everything I'm reading up on says sore breasts are a symptom of O not the surge. That it's common to have sore breasts or nipples on O and after. So did I O the day before or even the day before that?

We bd every other day from 2/18 to 2/24, so we are covered there :)

Thoughts / advice?

That's interesting. I didn't know about the sore bbs being a symptom of o. I never have sore bbs mid-cycle. I did read yesterday though that you are ovulating when you feel the wettest from cm discharge and that cm color does not necessarily predict ovulation. Some people o when they have clear and never have ewcm at all. I think I messed up this month because I assumed that ewcm appearance meant ovulation, but I had more cm the following week and it was clear. I think that was when I was most fertile because if the ewcm was an indicator, I'm past my 2ww now and still no AF and no BFP either.

Yeah, tough for me to read cm this time around because of the Zyrtec - it dries you up.

The cm I had on the 24th was more white so not the typical o cm.

Cm is always tricky to read...

Last month I was late and no bfp. AF came late. Fx for you though!!!
