Hey Pix, I know it won't make you feel any better but after my TR surgery my AF was all screwed up for a while after too.

Hey Pix,


This is very common and usually (but not always) an indication of AF right around the corner.

For those of you keeping score at home...still no AF.

I get a blob of EWCM before AF due to the drop of progesterone and the increase in estrogen.

I am not sure either, but my temps also usually drop just before O, so it could be possible, depending on what your temps looked like throughout the month. Or it could just be gearing up for AF. I have had EWCM at nearly anytime of the month, though unless it is at O time it is usually just a small amount for a very short period of time. Keep us posted on how things go for you.

Pixie,
If you didn't have a two phase chart, I bet that you are ovulating super late. That is what just happened to me. I bet that in 4 days your temps will go up...

Hey Pix - my BBT always drops just before I ovulate - is it possible you could be about to ovulate. I've never had EWCM before AF - I say BD to cover your bases!

Good luck!

CM can certainly go back to EWCM just prior to getting AF....it's actually pretty normal, but maybe not as profuse from month to month, maybe that's why you haven't noticed it too much previously. When my cm goes back to clear, then I know she's on her way.

I have not personally experienced that but after being on these TTC boards for 4 months now I believe anything is possible with our bodies!! It is very frustrating though when you want AF to show and move on to next cycle and you get that instead, very strange!
