CD13 CF/CM but no O

So, what does it mean if I had really great CM (what is the difference between F and M?) over the weekend, but no O on the OPK?

The CM was stretchy Thursday and Friday and then pretty much egg whites on Saturday and then back to stretchy on Sunday and this morning but no smiley face on the OPK. What does that mean?

The stretchy fluid is what they call the egg white CM.

My CF was stretchy Thursday and Friday. On Saturday it was stretchy in the morning and egg white-y in the afternoon and I BD'd that evening as well as Sunday evening. Today it is thin but still stretchy...

I don't have OPKs with lines. Maybe the next cycle I'll get them.

I only used the OPKs once a day in the mornings. Do you think I missed it?! If I see the egg white-y stuff, I technically would have 24-48 hours after that to conceive, right?

but you know what i don't understand that if you dtd every other day according to a ovulation chart (predictor or whatever they are called) and sperm live for up to 4 or 5 days.. I do not understand how an egg can be missed??

Surge means that there is an drastic increase in the amount of LH roughly 24 hrs before ovulation. This LH is what the OPKs are looking for. If you look up "Menstrual cycle- wikipedia" they have some very good charts that can help you visuallize how the hormones work through out your cycle. I found that it made it much easier to understand. Mel
