This is my first TTC post. I havent been posting after my wedding last year. But now I am back on the hive looking for knowledge and support.
I had Mirena taken out on 02/13/2013, have had two periods since.
No real clue when I ovulated, since I am just now starting to monitor everything.
I am having a hard time trying to identify CM.
Right now is kinda creamy/lotion like, but I am expecting to get my period sometime this week.

@peacockchris: There is a TTC board (under “Nesting”) where I’m sure you’ll find tons of support.
Have you already read “Taking Charge of Your Fertility”? If not, the first thing to do is score a copy of that. It’s hugely informative.
If you’re coming up on your period, it makes perfect sense that your fluid is creamy and lotion-like. You are not in a fertile phase right now. A couple of weeks after your period, you will probably start to notice it get slipperier, like egg whites. That’s fertile fluid.
Are you going to chart your temperatures? That will help too, and there are sample charts in the back of the TCOYF book that you can use. It takes a while to get into the swing of charting, but it’s worth it.
