    I made this post last night, and no matter what I tried WB wouldn’t let me post it. Sorry for the lateness!

    @OldMrsMcDonald: Hi lady! It took me a couple of days to clean our one bedroom apartment, so I know what you mean. I guess we did a good job and got our deposit back even with two cats. I’m sure you would love the extra space.

    As for this week, we just took the car for an oil change and brake check, we just need to clean it inside, make sure the tire air is optimal and get our things ready to hit the road to our trip to Cali.

    @livelaughlove628:  Wedding that’s exciting. Planning our wedding was a lot of work, but it was totally worth it. We had such a beautiful time, the best time of my life πŸ™‚

     @octoberbaby: You had an interesting temp drop at 5dpo. I just want to let you know that I’m can’t wait until you test and update us as you feel right doing so. FX you get your BFP this cycle….we really need some BFP news in this board πŸ™‚

    @4littlekitties: Sorry about AF.

    @NonannaS: I’m glad something is doing the job and you’re getting fertile CM. I have been contemplating the idea of buying a Clear Blue to test for LH surge. I feel like if I wait until I get +OPK, it’s too late to BD because I could only BD like one time. I think I’ll have to look more into this Clear Blue Easy Test. πŸ™‚

    @Franette: I took B6 to help me increase progesterone or at least I read not so much to lengthen my LP. I took it for the entire cycle, and as far as I know it does no harm even if you get pregnant, but it’s a good idea to double check with a doctor.

    @emsy3110: Just to add to your question, texture is very important.

    Sticky- It usually is white as in clumps and it stays in your fingers. It doesn’t slide or stretch.

    Creamy- It’s like a diluted lotion. It slides between your fingers but it doesn’t stretch.

    EWCM- It’s usually clear and stretches between your fingers. Similar to your nose mucus.

    Watery- It doesn’t slide quite as much, and it feels like water. It tends to dry faster and it should be clear.

    This is the fertility order as well. Ideally, you should move from sticky to watery up to ovulation, then some women get creamy and rarely EWCM after they ovulate. Maybe some sticky before your period added to the mix.

    Please anyone, if I’m wrong, correct me. This is from my experience.

    @FreckledFox:  Right? Oh I don’t know, I think we could all get textbook perfect looking charts and it not mean anything, what a tease!

    @candy11:  Thank you, you’re very sweet. I really want to wait until Sunday minimum (12dpo) because once I start to POAS I can’t stop lol

    @Turtle83:  Hahaha! Honestly that sounds like something I would do because during my planning I am also planning when I will be 12 weeks to tell work and obviously I look at due date! FYI this cycle would be November 18! I honestly can’t tell DH because he gets just as excited and starts planning with me, we get so worked up we’re almost calling our parents to tell them we’re pregnant even though we have no idea yet lol!!!

    @Turtle83: You are like me, I was planning my schedule in case I got pregnant. Luckly this is my last semester taking courses, so I am done!. All I need to do is finish my dissertation πŸ™‚

    @octoberbaby:  I know what you mean. My goal is to wait until 14dpo, but I’m not sure I can wait that long. That’s why I am estimating to POAS on April 1st unless I ovulate this week πŸ™‚

    EWCM for me today!  O must be nearing, hooray.  BD is already scheduled for this evening (sad but true), and now that I have EWCM, I’m going to ask that we switch over to ED until it goes away.  Trying to get all of our horses in the race this month!

    @octoberbaby:  If we were all textbook, then we might not be charting and then we wouldnt have each other to lean on during the TWW!  πŸ˜€

    @candy11:  Thanks for your detailed explanation. At this point, all I seem to get is either dry or watery CM. I can’t seem to identify anything that would be creamy, sticky or stretchy. Maybe with practice I’ll be able to differentiate between them, or this is all due to the fact that I am not ovulating.

    @emsy3110:  Some women only have watery CM and that’s their fertile sign. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you’re not ovulating! I took a Billings Ovulation Method class and the instructor was like, “You’ll have to get to know your own cervical mucus changes because not everyone gets EWCM – for you, wet might be the sign of ovulation.”

    @Franette:  Thank you guys for the advise. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who is a terrible sleeper. :/ I will continue to temp into my next cycle and I hope to still be able to pinpoint my O day like you guys do. Thanks! πŸ™‚

    @FreckledFox:  I am sure that it is the different times that it is making them like that; however, I don’t know what to do seeing as I literally wake up at all hours of the night. πŸ™ I’m just going to keep doing what I am doing for now and see if I see a pattern my next cycle!

    @KatieBklyn:  Thanks for the reassurance! I think TCOYF briefly talks about that too, that fertile CM may not be the exact defintion of EWCM and that it may be more watery. I think I’m just really worried with my possible PCOS diagnosis and I am really anxious to know if I am ovulating or not.

    @candy11:  April 1st! That seems so far away yet close, its funny when you think in terms of POAS dates or O dates, time seems like fly by, we’re already in March and I feel like we just celebrated New Years! I have fingers and toes crossed for you lady!

    @FreckledFox:  Haha this is true.. although is would be a lot easier to anticipate!

    @OldMrsMcDonald:  Yay! Good luck! I know it’s weird but schedule BD but unfortunately very neccessary. When you get your DD/DS you will know that they were carefully planned for and very much wanted πŸ™‚

    @candy11:  It was because I tempted so late. It went back down this morning.  I only have one day off a weekbut usually don’t sleep in, yesterday was the exception and I enjoyed it thoroughly

    I think I’m out this month- after I was finally feeling a little positive.  Last night I had a spot of blood when I checked CM and was a tiny bit crampy.  This morning I noticed another spot so I put a pad on just in case- nothing is on it though.  But I have a feeling AF is on her way.  Ughhhhhh this is so hard- onto the 9th month.  Frown

    @candy11:  I am actually going to post a review pros/cons post about the Clearblue later because I have had like 4 Bees ask me about it. And when I first started using it, it was confusing os I read a lot or reports about it online….. be on the lookout for it!
