OVULATION QUESTION HELP

LadyD - February 23

Hi, all. Question for anyone who knows ANYTHING about cm and ov. I had my last af on 2/10, regular cycle is approx. 32days. I used an online site to calculate next ov, which is supposed to be between 2/26-2/28, but yesterday I got bad cramps and a little cm down there, not much, I've seen more. My question is: Could I have been ovulating and what are the chances of me getting pg if it was only cd12?

Also I forgot to add that it feels like my af is coming down most of the day but it is not due until about March 13. All I keep feeling is like...a drip, I guess you'd call it, but there is not much in my panties, small amount of egg white cm. (Sorry if tmi).

Egg white cervical mucous (ewcm) means it's your fertile time now! Get busy, and good luck!

Oh good, thank you. When I get home from work, it is baby making time!

Hi LadyD, looks like we are on the same cycle. My last AF was 2/9, due for next on 3/13 (32 day cycle) I too have been noticing cm, but doesn't seem like much and is just clear, doesn't seem like ewcm. I have also been having slight cramps for the past two days on and off, hopefully are O cramps. The charts say I should O on 2/27, but I really feel like may be happening early. DH and I have been bd for past 3 days just for the fun of it so hope something took hold. How long have you been ttc?

 

LadyD - February 24

Jjlo, I have been really ttc for about 1 mth but we haven't been using much to prevent it in the past. We now decided it's time so this is really the first cycle. And you?

We have been ttc for about 3months, I was on the pill untill Sept. then used condoms untill Dec. Didn't really try Dec or Jan, but then paid attention to the signs in Feb. I was really disappointed when AF came on 2/9 because I "felt" things for the two weeks prior, such as cramping, sore b___bs, nausea, and peeing a lot. I decided I wasn't going to stress about it so much. I am worried that we may have trouble because I was on the pill for 10 years. My DH has 3 kids already from a previous marriage, so there is nothing wrong with him. What is your situation?

I haven't been on bc for yrs now. I have a 5 yr old already but haven't been pg since. My DH has a 2 yr old already so I know we are both capable of having kids. I quit cigs about 3 wks ago (yeah!!) so maybe this will make my chances better and I drink occa__sionally, used to do it every weekend. I think that was affecting it. I will be honest, the first time I was pg, I had quit weed, cigs, and alcohol about 2 mths before I got pg b/c I was going into the military and when I was actually in the military, 2 mths later, I found out I was pg. I think it happened the day I left home and I figure that b/c of the edd (expected due date). I actually gave birth at 30 wks and I am anxious again. Maybe you should see a dr. b/c 10 yrs is a long time and it may take a little longer. I am no where near an expert but I would think it may take a little bit longer than the average, but you never know... I'll keep my fingers crossed for you...and me, of course. (lol)

I saw my Gyno when I decided to stop taking bc and she put me on prenatal vitamins, she said there isn't usually complications from bc no matter how long you have been on it. My dh and I quit smoking too, right after Thanksgiving. Congrats to you! It hasn't been easy because I've been trying to lose some pounds too in prep for a baby. My doctor says I should lose at lease 25lbs. I was doing good until I quit smoking, now instead of an after-dinner cig, we have pie or cake :) With your first pregnancy, did you try at all or was it accidental? Did you have any early symptoms?

 

LadyD - February 24

Good that you quit too.Congrats.My 1st was a BIG surprise. My story is kind of long, but I'll make it brief. I left home on 1/25 (which turns out to be about my conception date) and I did have s_x that m'ning, took a pg test be4 I left NY b/c it was mandatory for basic training, it was neg., took another mandatory 1 in SC less than 6 days later, neg., also. About 1/29, I threw up salad dressing, but still was clueless. I did not get a period since 12/26, but thought stress and different enviroment did it, so I was still ok. Now, on 3/17, I went to dr. while I was still in the military b/c my back was hurting and I needed xrays. they would not let me take them until they took another pg b/c I did not have a period. Sure enough, I was pg...and they sent me home. I was glad and blessed. I think my daughter is a blessing. Maybe I would've died at war or something. I did not have ANY symptoms except I wanted pizza and fish, and I HATED chicken and it used to be my favorite food. Maybe that was a sign... chicken made me gag at chow time.

DO you think that alcohol can affect conception. I know it can hurt the baby during pregnancy but what about before or when implanting? My dh owns a bar & grill, so we are there quite a bit and frequently have a few beers. Not every day and not enough to get drunk. Just wondering if you think it can affect conception or even the swimmers? Also, what about coffee? Have you heard anything about that? I have at least two cups every morning. Are you charting or doing anything to help w/ttc?

I know someone that smokes ALOT of weed and cigs all day, everyday and she's been pg 3 times in the last yr and a half! (Obviously had abortions) I know someone right now that party's hard ( drink and smoke) and didn't believe she was pg, guesss what? She sure is. I guess it has to be your time. I think it may make the process slower but look at my friends. Would you call that luck/blessing? I don't know. You don't have any kids, I am a__suming? I don't know what it is with this baby obsession for me right now. I think it's the fact that I had my 1st when I wasn't fully prepared and now, as I am getting a little older, I think I am ready and I actually wanted my kids back to back but I was only 18 when I had my 1st.. she snuck up on me right before my 19th bday. I use www.mymonthlycycles.com to keep track of my pg and I just watch my body. This site has helped me determine when I ovulate. I never knew why cm was always there, I thought a woman's body was just designed to secrete fluids (I know I probably sound dumb, but trust, I am no where near stupid, just dumb to this ov thing (lol). Honestly, I don't have the patience for the kits and stuff. Whenever GOD is ready for me to be a mom again, it will happen....I hope he has me in line soon. I also think too much caffeine is a no-no. Try 1 cup a day if you can, try to cut down or out anything you think may be preventing the egg from getting fertilized for a little while and let's keep our fingers crossed. I started taking vitamins, too.

 

jjlo6479 - February 24

I agree. I have been reading on this site about how the egg only lasts for 24 hours after ovulation, so each month you really only have 2 days to conceive. I find it amazing that some people who aren't even trying and some who are even on bc can still get preg, I hope they realize what a huge blessing that must be! Sorry if this if tmi, but what do you consider ewcm to look like? The only thing I have ever noticed is clear and slippery, but not necessarily strechy.

 

LadyD - February 24

It looks lotiony, egg coloredI hear people say it is stretchy but I never actually tried to investigate it that deep (lol). You? Really, I guess when people ger pg, it is for a reason only known by God, b/c there are so many kids that people don't want and it's so sad b/c the people that do want are not always blessed when they want it, some can't have kids at all.

 

jjlo6479 - February 24

Thats definitly true. My neighbors were trying for a long time and ended up adopting a baby from Russia.

 

LadyD - February 24

Well, I wish you the best of luck at ttc and keep me updated, I'll do the same. How about we try to keep in touch true this forum and see how we progress this 1st mth or so? Have you ever been pg before?

 

jjlo6479 - February 24

That sounds great. I would love to go through the wait with someone. DH is very supportive and wants us to be pg, but he also doesn't want to hear about it every day. Last month when I was having all these symptoms I kept telling him I thought I was preggo but he kept saying I was crazy and not to stress out. This month I hope I don't get stressed out. I have never been pg before. Did you say you live in NY? I live in MI near Ann Arbor.
