Kell - I am sorry you are going through this. I am also 25 and feel like this should just happen so quickly as well. I had some questions about finding my cervix as well. I didn't know what everyone was talking about. I did actually find an opening this month. It feels like a divit in a golf ball, but a little bit bigger. Are you DTD everyday or every other day? Have you tried the SMEP? I have heard it has really good sucess rates. If you attach your chart I can take a look. Also, do you get EWCM near O? If you don't have a lot, you can take things to help with the production. I took mucinex as well as grapefruits and apples this month and there was a lot more this month than last. Hope we can get through this together. I am on CD 15 and I am pretty sure I O'ed today. So you are not far behind me.

how far did you have to put your finger to feel that? and what are your cycles like mines 28-29 but had a 31 3 months ago that threw me off.

I wouldn't stop him either if he wanted it! He he. I don't know when you are supposed to take the mucinex, I was taking it for a cold and I knew it was supposed to help with EWCM. I have had a lot this month. I don't know if it was that or the grapefruit and apples. I don't think you are supposed to take it after O tho. As far as checking the cervix, I think I have to put my finer in almost all the way when it is high. If you press it outward like you are going to pee, it will come a little closer to your finger.

My last cycle 30 days. It was my first cycle post miscarriage. I came off bc pills in april or may. After that my cycles were getting longer each month. The month before my BFP was 31 days.

That's great for feeling what is going on in your body? Was your cervix open? Mine was super open this morning and had to put my whole finger in to find it. Was your EWCM before or after dtd? Did you get much sleep last night? Lol I am not sure if I O'ed yesterday or today. I am trying to find out what the super high and super open means if I have O'ed or will O.

My ewcm was before dtd..thats why i jumped on it lol. i ended up getting plenty of rest. i just cuddled up on dh and passed out i guess i got real comfy. i was talking to someone whos cervix was opened an extra day giving her a 5day fertile period. check it tonite and see if its any lower? i had ovary cramping all day today and i dont want to miss anything so i want to dtd tonite but knowing my egg is available for 24 hrs im tepted to wait till tomorrow. i dont want dh to be over it and i def want to tomorrow idk what do u think?

:(...I wonder if I'm actually ovulating this month...OPK still shows a faint positive...don't have as much CM...only have the 'wet' feeling but don't see anything coming out when I check.
I am taking mucinex coz its supposed to be taken from the end of period till O day and then not to be taken.
I'm just so concerned about CM :(.
My DH is busy with DIY here...fixing stuff and watching soccer...gets to bed tired!!! Aaargh, am so irritated. Since this is CD14 I need him to boogey with me!!!!

dont worry to much about your cm. if you got your timing right then wait out your 2ww and if you dont get your bfp this cycle then next cycle get some preseed or ovaboost (it helps your ovary function to o) i know a girl on here that dosent get ewcm or real wcm and she got pregnant! my dh has been super about bding he was super tired tonight and i didnt feel good but i knew i needed this tonight to so he said whatever you want whatever makes you happy. after we started he was more into it lol. but really dont worry about it you might just o late i did this month!
