But I’m pretty sure I’m out this month 🙁 we haven’t been trying that long but I’ve been charting for a few months now (not temping though, just tracking cm and opk results). I O’d a day later than I normally do this month and this cycle just feels different. I’m honestly a bit worried that I had an anovulatory cycle. Normally after O I have major mood swings (I get irritated very easily and by pretty much everything) and I haven’t gotten that this cycle, for basically the first time ever. My boobs also usually get very sore and this month they are barely sore at all. I’ve also been getting cramps which is normal for me after O.
The reason I think I’m out is because I’m at 7 dpo today and I got a decent amount of ewcm. I usually get this a few days before I get AF but not usually this early. We did have sex last night so I’m not sure if it’s leftovers from that. Earlier today and for the last couple days I’ve had creamy/sticky cm, which I don’t usually get after O. It’s a decent amount, enough to see in my underwear.
I’m on CD 21 and my cycles are usually 26 or 27 days. I’m not expecting AF until next week which is why the ewcm is a bit odd. Has anyone every had ewcm before a bfp?

I didn’t have any EWCM before my BFP. In fact, I was 99% sure I was out this month. At 9dpo (a few days ago), I had a backache all day…felt like a UTI which I’m very prone to getting but I knew it wasn’t one. Tested that night and had a faint BFP! My boobs aren’t sore either.

Going by cm is a notoriously unreliable way to predict pregnancy. Furthermore, if you had all of those symproms on the cycles you weren’t pregnant – wouldn’t you think it may be a promising sign that you don’t have them this cycle?
All I am trying to say is don’t count yourself out until AF arrives.

I was hopeful until I got the ewcm since I always get that before AF. I’m having pretty bad cramps that radiate to my back and it kind of feels like AF is on the way. I know I’m not put yet though!

I’ve read lots of posts where women got EWCM before their BFP, so definitely don’t count yourself out just based on that. And so many PMS symptoms are also early pregnancy symptoms that you may have very similar symptoms in the cycle you get a BFP.

ugh, I feel you on that! I thought I had another uti yesterday but I feel ok today. I had 2 last month!

Well, I got sore boobs today on CD 22, 8 DPO. Blah, not sure why it took them so long to start hurting this cycle. I also got a bunch more EWCM so I’m 99% sure I’m out based on my CM alone. This really sucks
