Hi girls, I'm 11 DPO todyay, and just spotted some EWCM by my cervix. I know it can be a signal of rising estrogen levels ... and that AF is coming. But, anyone out there have this and get a BFP? Just wondering if it's a sure-fire way to tell that there's not hope ... Thanks!

what is EWCM?

 

Lin - March 5

Egg white cervical mucous. Babydreams - it could also be a sign that you've ovulated late. Are you temping? I've never heard it as a sign of AF.

Lawgirl: It's "egg-white cervical mucus."

Hey Lin: Well, I've read that it indicates higher estrogen levels, which happen before AF. My temps have been high for 11 days now ...

Oh . . . today is day 13 of my luteal phase and I always start on day 13 but nothing. I tested this morning and got a BFN. Shouldn't I be showing a BFP by now if I am preggers??

Maybe not, Lawgirl, sometimes they can take days to show up, depending on how fast your body produces the pregnancy hormone. I'd wait two days and test again then using FMU (first morning urine). Good luck to you ...

Thank you . . . I'll do that. I hope to be preggers. I've been constipated and moody and exhausted. I usually have bad cramps on day 13 which always is a sign that AF is coming for me but today--nothing. No cramps at all just intense hunger and a bit of queasiness. Babydreams, high temps for 11 days I've heard is a really good sign . . . have you tested?

Ah, ok. Yeah, I just googled a chart and see that it does in fact rise a bit before AF. Do you know how long your lueal phase is? Lawgirl - sounds good so far! If they're still elevated at 18 dpo, then you're most likely pregnant. It's definitely possible to get a bfp after a bfn, but yes, it is most common to get a bfp by the first day of your missed period. Good luck! I hope you get your bfp!

Nope, haven't test yet! After four months of TTC, I think I've wasted a few hundred dollars on tests (embarra__sing, I know). So I'm holding out for several more days! It's tough, though! I am absolutely stumped on this EWCM-aroundAF-time-thing though. I never get return EWCM before AF, so it makes me wonder, but I guess I've always read it's a sign of AF ... ugh. : (

Hi, just wanted to say that yesterday and the day before, I had what looked like ewcm and my af was due today. It really confused me, even took an opk just out of curiosity. I thought maybe I didn't o when I thought I did. But af came today right on time. So it didn't mean anything for me. I do remember having that type of cm alot during when I was pg last time also. So you never know.

Thanks AshleyB ... that's interesting. I'll let you know how it goes. In the meantime, anyone else have any post-O EWCM stories? Thanks!!

 

Lin - March 5

Ooh, good to know. Thanks for that, Ashley! Babydreams - I recommend buying pregnancy tests online. They're astoundingly cheaper. and so are the opks. I just bought 30 hpts on ebay for $12, including shipping.

Unusual clear or creamy discharge can be sign of pregnancy, often described on the forum as "wet down there", "lotion dicharge", and "running to the bathroom thinking AF....". Lawgirl, you mention half a dozen early signs. I have positive feelings for you. Good luck!

Grandpa Viv, that's interesting! Thanks for the info. My CM is clear, watery, and unusal today. Still no sign of AF ... and I had noticed a tiny bit of pink in my cm at 8 DPO. Hmmm ... will wait and see!!

 

lawgirl29 - March 6

Thanks Grandpa Viv and Lin and Babydreams! I'm starting to think I'm probably not though . . . according to my calculations today is 14DPO and I tested BFN this morning with a $ Tree test. I guess I'll keep testing until AF shows. I'll keep y'all updated. =).
