So… sometimes I have plenty of watery cervical fluid leading up to O, but no true EWCM- except for the evening of my ovulation day (confirmed by temp dip on O day, then shift the next morning). I’ve read that BD’ing on O day is usually too late- especially if we’re talking the evening before my temp rise. But the night of O day is the only 1/2 day that I have true EWCM when I check my cervix!
Last night we BD’ed, which should be perfect if this is my O day (as my EWCM right now would suggest). But I only had watery cervical fluid at the time. I did use Preseed w an applicator, but still… Unless it’s possible that I had EWCM internally last night, but it didn’t “come out” of my cervix to be visible until tonight? Any ideas on if I still have a chance?

It’s totally possible for EWCM not to “come out” if you didn’t bear down, or for you not to notice it, especially if you don’t check before and after EVERY time you use the bathroom. So you still have a chance there. Also, temp shift does confirm O, but apparently the temp can start to rise a +\- a day or so around O, meaning your EWCM and temp dip day could be O-1 instead of O. So if you can BD tonight too.

thanks. We couldn’t last night bc Darling Husband is out of state (we had to meet at a hotel just to do it night before last!). my temp went up this morning (97.5 from 97.1) and it feels like my cervix is starting to close, but I still had a bit of EWCM. I guess it may still have been up high where needed when we BD’ed, and I was noticing plenty of watery fluid & used the Preseed so maybe that will somehow be good enough

No it’s not too late to BD the night of ovulation, couple of days leading up to it, and a few days post ovulation. Best to have all your bases covered. GL

My 7 month old baby is from evening of O day BD (I was away on a work trip, and didn’t get home til that day!). 🙂 It definitely can happen. Sounds like you had perfect timing, good luck!!

Watery CM is still fertile CM and you could easily have had some EWCM up in there during those days prior to this as well. Sounds like you hit timing well. If he’s around it couldn’t hurt to DTD again today but if you’re tired or not up for it that’s probably fine too. Once you O the egg only lives for 12-24 hours so there is a little wiggle room there for sperm to make it up there depending on when you O and when you DTD again.

I got my BFP with watery CM, so its totally possible that all the good stuff is actually up in your cervix 🙂 I wouldn’t stress it too much and just focus on hitting the days before and the day of ovulation!

TThanks so much, ladies. I really appreciate your help. This morning my temp went back down to 97.1 and my cervix is still soft and high, so maybe I am O’ing late. We BD’ed again last night so hopefully I’m good!
