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.

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!
