Question about CM really long, tmi-sorry

Hi Girls,

Wow it's been a long time since I've posted and I'm not quite sure about the board change. It seems kind of hard to follow sometimes, but oh well, I don't think that I've missed to much, I hope.

DH and I are on a TTC break, we are not doing anything to prevent it, but ttc was just consuming way to much of my life, and I was getting super discouraged, and depressed, so I had to try and give it a rest. Well I'm on my 2nd month of giving it a rest, and I have a question about cm. I'm not really sure what day my cycle started on this month. I started spotting 3/23 and didn't have a heavy day until 3/28 or so. I went on vacation 3/26-4/1, so I don't know if that could have possibly screwed it up or not. My cycles have been around 26 days for the last couple of months. I figure that I'm on cd10-14 somewhere in there. Well anyway in my ttc rest I've been kind of paying attention to cm, and kind of not, because I wouldn't be upset if I ended up pg. One day last week I had some what I thought looked like ewcm and it was very stretchy, (of course I forgot which day it was). This next part might be tmi ---- So today I feel like I have a water faucet running down below, but everytime I go to the rr my pantyliner is dry, but when I check cm with tp I get quite a bit of cm, but with chuncks of super stretchy cm - what kind of cm is this? Do you think that it would be considered sticky? The chunks themselves are stretchy, but it's strange. Sorry if this was tmi.

Wow I can babble on and on, this must be what happens when you don't post forever. Anyway, I would appreciate any insight that you might have. Sorry that this was to long, and probably had tmi. I wish you all the best and lots of bfps! Congratulations to all the women that have gotten them, and positive thoughts and hugs to the women that have to deal with that stupid red beast that seems to think she's "blessing" us with her presence.

I wish you all the best no matter what!!



PS - The new TTC website - looks great!

Hi, Julie! Nice to hear from you again! My own opinion, from what you're describing I would say that it's EWCM. Mine gets like that too....kind of watery with globs of stretchy stuff. That was probably watery cm last week that some get before the EWCM. Talk about TMI! I really don't think there's such a thing around here!

JMHO!~ Tara

Tara and my June bug!  ;o)

ITA, any time you have lots of CM and it is stretchy it is considered probable fertile CM, especially if you are between CD10-14. Go for it and BD away!
