EWCM question

I have been thinking PPAF will arrive for months now...but have not ovulated since dd (she is now 2!)I have reluctantly stopped bf (3 weeks ago now) and thought I ovulated yesterday...but my abundant "EWCM" was yellow and not all clear. Does this mean it was not EWCM?

Also, my temp this morning was down from 36.9 to 36.5. Does anyone understand the significance of this? I suppose if there is no upward thermal shift there is no question of having ovulated or conceived?

Hi Torielle:

I'm not sure if the yellowish cm means anything, maybe it's just your cycle trying to kick in. Have you tried any of the OPK's?? Since you might be a bit irregular for a while, that might really help you to know exactly when you are ovulating. I recently learned from another thread that they even have ovulation monitors that really take the guess work out of it. They are fairly expensive though. Someone recommended going on the Clear Blue Easy Web site. I haven't looked it up yet.

I don't know about the drop in temp accept that I know mine varies quite a bit from day to day and I think it's just the thermometer??

Hopefully someone else will chime in with some more info for you.

Hi,


The people over at the Fertility Charting board might be one of the best resources, or you can sign up at Fertility Friend and get all sorts of support there.

I am charting but not recording it online. I will try to start again so I can consult the experts.

Where can I find the Fertility charting board?

It's funny, because for months my temp was about36.8 to 37.1 and for the past 4 mornings it has been 36.5 or 36.6.

I havent yet discovered where to buy opks over here (I live in Luxembourg, Europe and we dont get the same online service as in the States.

Thanks for the advice

Hi,


If you go to the main page for pregnancy & parenting topics then into the TTC section (I think), it will be listed there.
