Hi, First off thank u everyone for being such a great help. I am totally new to chartng, and I have no idea whats going on.

My biggest problem is figuring what CM is, i dont think i make a lot of it, and it all kinda looks the same to me. some days i noticed i seem to be more "wet" on the outside than other days. also a few days ago i was checking my CM and on my fingers it looked kinda creamy, but then i went to move my hand and i saw some stuff stretch between my two fingers..not very far, but it did. should i put this as egg white? i think thats they only time its happened. and i cant even find my cervix... any help with this would be great too.

So anyways Im just worried that Im not ovulating this cycle (my luck my first time charting). any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

by the way yesterday and today ive had a slight sharp pain in my lower abdomen, which i would consider ovulaation pain, i think ive gotten this before, but ive never really paid attention either.

thanks again!!

Hi there! It looks to me like you haven't yet O'd. I would keep b'ding and temping. have you ever thought about using those opk tests? they are $18, but can help you. If you get them, make sure you test later in the day--I usually shoot for 6-7pm. I use them to narrow down symptoms, and in conjunction with CM. The stretchy CM is great, and so is the watery/wet feeling. I know this is going to sound yucky, but sometimes the best time to check CM is after going number 2(after wiping ect). It seems to get your CM down to checkable level---know what I mean? Hope that helps a little! hang in there! :D
