In terms of CM – you’ll want to look at the scale of fertile CM. Right after you ovulate, in theory you’ll be dry.

There is a graphic visual here if you’d like to see.

Basically egg white, watery, stretchy CM is an indicator of ovulation.

Also, the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility is a really easy, worthwhile read. Not just for TTC, but in general for a female to know. I think you’ll probably be fine without temping unless you’re TTC for awhile and want more info, accuracy.

You could say we BD’d every day for the 5 days leading up to O 

I’m in awe of ladies who can tell when they ovulate based on their CM. I’ve never been able to work it out. For me, the most reliable methods have been OPKs (which tells you that O is approaching) and temping (to confirm that O happened). 

I’d second reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility, it’s a really helpful book.

I literally went back and put 13 months woth of data into Fertility Friend.  It was a b* but I think worth it.  Any updates?
