CM help

Postby rcpmelissa » Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:37 am

I knew my body down to a science when I got pregnant the first time, but my body has changed so much I don't know exactally when I ovulate anymore. I usualy have a lot of REALLY think, cloudy CM the 3-4 days before I *think* I ovulate and then I get pretty dry for 2-3 days and then have a little bit of clear CM like the day or two after. Is that normal or am I off in my thinking? I know increased CM is a sign of ovulation but is it a sign that it's coming or that it's happening or that it's already happened. Would I get more before? The cloudy CM is what there is a LOT of, the clear is usally just a bit on the TP when I wipe. Sorry this is TMI but I gues nothing on this site is TMI! :)

I think every women is different but I found a couple of links that has helped me in the past determine what my body was/is doing .... I hope they help:

http://www.ovulation-calculator.com/cervical-mucus.htm
http://infertility.about.com/od/tryingt ... lmucus.htm

In general:
The Stages of Cervical Fluid: Post Menses
Stage 1: Lasting 2 - 3 days CM is Sticky or Gummy (S)
Stage 2: Lasting 2- 4 days: CM is Creamy, Milky, Lotion Like - Beginning of your fertile period (C)
Stage 3: Lasting 1-5 days: Egg white Cervical Fluid - At this time you are very fertile. (E)
Stage 4: Dry, Moist or Sticky (Infertile)

Oh and btw NOTHING is TMI on this site!
