@confusedbridehere:  I’m sure you’ve done this already, but for straight facts, I highly recommend http://www.fertilityfriend.com  You will get all your answers there instead of hearsay– I know the O and consistency of CM is a VERY time sensitive thing so I wouldn’t want you to get the wrong info! 

check out their videos!

I agree with PP that you might want to check out FF’s website for info or do a little “googling”. You’ll find a lot of info.  

For me personally, I have two or three “patches” of stretchy CM between my period and the time I ovulate, but that’s probably because I ovualte kind of late compared to the average woman.  See my chart below:

On CD 14 I first noticed stretchy, eggwhite-like CM, so I took an OPK.  That came back negative, so I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to O, but we BDed anyway just in case.  Then, a few days later, I got a longer stretch of fertile CM (both watery and stretchy). On those days my OPKs were getting darker so we kept BDing.  I DID get pregnant that cycle, but unfortunately it ended in a chemical. 

Long story short, if you end up with more than one patch of fertile CM, you might want to double up with OPKs to check whether or not it’s due to ovualtion. 🙂 

Good luck!

It’s not an exact science, but it generally means that your body is preparing to ovulate or just ovulated. Patches of stretchy CM are also common for some women (e.g. – getting a few days of stretchy CM, then a break, then more stretchy CM right before ovulation). 

It’s nearly impossible to predict exactly when you’re ovulating via CM alone (you can tell the general time period, but it’s hard to pinpoint an exact day). It won’t necessarily be exactly the same from cycle to cycle either.
