    TTC5 it took me a month or so to figure out where mine was, LOL! Looking at the links Atomic posted with the pics will really help. Since I got pg so easily I never bothered to learn anything about my cycle; that is one thing about swaying that I really love ... I have learned so much about my own body :-)

    Yes, that's great if you're TTC a boy, you'll need to dry it up if you are TTC a girl.

    You get EWCM for SEVERAL days around O, not just on O day. That is perfectly normal and in fact that's how sperm stay alive for several days, they hang out in the cervical crypts in a nice bath of EWCM.

    Are you swaying blue or pink?? I"m sorry I can't keep track of everyone in my mind.

    ANY watery or stretchy CM is good for blue. Both are forms of fertile CM and fertile CM is what you want for TTC a boy.

    For anyone TTC a girl, they should try drying that CM up somewhat through diet and antihistamines.

    SO helpful.

    One of my questions in my intro thread was about CM and temping. I think temping is not going to be an option for me. I wake up a lot, I sleep weird hours, I sleep in a cold room, and I sometimes sleep with my mouth open.

    The thing about the CM is that I think I have way, way too much EWCM from about day 8-18 of a 28 day cycle. Around day 19 is when it starts to dry up and get thick before finally disappearing. Because I have so much EWCM, it is hard for me to spot the exact day and time of ovulation because the very clear and stretchy stuff is hard to notice. I wonder if I'm having anovulatory cycles...

    you could try it and temp vaginally instead of orally. It's much more accurate to temp that way. You might find that disturbed sleep doesn't really affect your temps either - I have VERY disturbed sleep lately with a LO who wakes random times. There have been a few nights even in the last week where I haven't got more than a 2hr block of sleep, yet my temps are still quite consistent. If you can still take the temp at the same time each day and try to not move around much when you stir, that will help.

    If you have regular cycles it's very unlikely that they're anovulatory. Perhaps you're just "lucky" to get lots of fertile CM? Temping is the only way to prove (at home) that you've OVed before AF/BFP shows. Normally you'll OV on the last day of fertile CM, so you probably OV on CD18.

    Wow, thanks again for the ideas.

    For temping vaginally, use a digital oral thermometer and don't let anyone else use it ever? I've never considered doing it that way, but like you said, maybe that's the best way.

    There are days around suspected ovulation that I usually literally soak through panties because of all the mucous. I'm sorry, that is probably TMI. I never had this before until the last year or so.
