Help with ovulation question

Postby dragnflymomma » Mon Apr 28, 2014 7:27 pm

I know this may sound weird but it seems like I have ovulated all this month. I haven't been keeping strict track because the last time I did, the stress prolonged my cycle, drove me crazy and messed with my head. So no charting, no temps and no CP or CM checking.

Last month,I had a very short period in duration (seemed to last about 2.5-3 days with no clots, and spotting for roughly 2 days, which is unusual sorry for TMI) and about one day after the spotting stopped I constantly felt "wet" and my underwear would have a large moist spot on them. I do not recall ever having this issue before with the thin watery wetness and having to change my undies constantly.This was abnormal for me so I thought maybe I was ovulating, maybe my body was changing and so my husband and I got busy (which was nice not having to use any extra

Anyway, the wet, thin, watery mucus stopped for about a day or two and then it was the egg white consistency for about 3-4 days. Then it went away for about 2 days. So, yesterday and today it was egg white again, slimy and now I have really bad cramps in my left side and sometimes my right (but it is mostly my left side). I used to get cramps only during ovulation and could tell which side was releasing the egg just by the cramps. This feels like I am ovulating from the left ovary right now.The past couple cycles I didn't have any cramps so I am assuming I didn't ovulate or release any eggs even though I had EWCM. This cycle seems more jacked up so far because I do not recall having this much mucus in the entire cycle and the cramps are a bit more painful.

Could it just be hormones and my age or what (I am 41)? I don't think I am due for my period until about May 6-8th. I had one long cycle in Feb which throws off my average cycle length to about 27-28 days so not sure when to expect AF.

Could I have ovulated twice this month or just ovulating late?

I forgot to add that I decided to DTD with hubby today even though I had the cramps and it was so uncomfortable and sore. It felt like everything was swollen and tender inside (if that makes sense) I guess it could be actual ovulation and the other times were just hormonal changes?

I am also wondering if you have any news on how you are doing.
