Before my AF really kicked in there were ALOT of patches of EWCM and even after AF came in full force b/c my cycles were so long at the beginning I had some EWCM patches right up till the day before AF struck. I actually thought I was PG a few times. So it can be indicative of O coming, or not. It's that cruel. You're temping so that's good, you know when there'll be a rise that you O'd and if not it's just another patch (which it sounds like happened).

Btw- I used both FF and Ovusoft for a couple of months (right up until this cycle actually) and I noticed that Ovusoft is not that helpful for nursing moms. One time it told me that I did not O and it was looking for O right til I got AF. FF had pinpointed it on the day I thought (3 days of sustained temps). Also Ovusoft has a lot of kinks that need to be worked out (like not saving info sometimes, etc.) One month I tried to just record CM and that's when Ovusoft was helpful as FF does not tell you if you O'd just by CM. So all in all, I switched myself over to FF as it does a better job of monitoring you. Just wanted to let you know my frustration!
GL!

Cool, well that's helpful to know that you had multiple patches of EWCF. I guess I just wondered if most people had one patch before AF, a few, or lots. Sounds like you had lots. I know everyone is different, but I'm not sure if I should think AF is on her way soon or not! I get some mild cramping and nausea like I'm PMSing occasionally, so I think my body is just trying to work all the kinks out. :-) These last few mornings I thought I'd get lucky with a TS, but to no avail. Even dropped this morning! (Did wake up earlier than usual tho) I'll just keep charting away!


I did notice a lot of ladies on here using FF, too. I was only using Ovusoft since it's by
