Ovulation Signs

Hi ladies, was just wondering if you'd mind sharing yr ovulation signs with me? I'm not temping at the moment but am checking for ewcm & my cervical position, but wondered about other physical signs. What do ovulation cramps feel like (last month I had a st_tch like pain on my right hand side but nothing this month apart from a couple of twinges), do you get backache & if so is it before/during/post ovulation & if you get sensitive nipples are these before/during or post? Also how long do any of these signs last for? I know everyone's different but would just give me an idea of what to look for. Thanks very much & baby dust to all!

Hi Becky - it's confusing isn't it!? This month I noticed twinges on the left side. I didn't know I had o'd that day til I took my temp the following morning but I remember noticing and wondering if that's what it was. Sore b___bs always comes 3-4 days after ovulation for me right up til af. As for cm, it's always watery up to ovulation (I don't check religiously but sometimes I've noticed ewcm a day or two before o) and then immediately afterwards goes creamy until af. I dunno, it's hard to tell, everyone is different. I only really discovered all this through temping, then I knew what was happening pre and post-o. Oh and another thing about cervical position, d__n I am never gonna get that down - the only time it ever feels open is during af. During o, it still feels quite closed. weird. Good luck honey x

Hi Naomi, yes it's too confusing!! As you know from the other thread I have NO clue as to when I've ovulated this month!!! I've been having lower backache for the last week (which I normally get a couple of days before af is due) & also have been having twinges down there (which I also normally only get a couple of days before af) but if my cycle stays the same as it was last month I'm not due till 9th March (so I could be ovulating about now) or if it shortens I expect the earliest I'd get it would be 1st March (cd28) I had what I think was an ovulation pain almost 2 weeks ago, but have never got a positive opt!! It's so frustrating. I just wish I knew whether these symptoms were af, pregnancy or ovulation!! Or something else!

Those d__n opk's. I totally gave up on those things - I never got a positive from them and they're bloody expensive. It's a pain not knowing where your cycle will fall this month. I hope it evens out soon so you don't have to go through this every month! I forgot to mention about cervical position, after I ovulate it goes really low, easily reachable with just one finger in just about any position (sorry tmi!). Don't know if that helps.

Ever since I've been feeling cervical position (about 2 weeks now) it's always been high & alternates between hard & soft. It seems to have gone higher this last couple of days though so maybe I am about to ovulate. I hope my cycles sort themselves out soon too, for me it's more like the 5ww, never mind 2ww!!

Aww I'd die if I had 5ww..I can barely handle 2ww without losing my mind.

SarahBeth it's horrible - already I'm wondering whether I'm getting symptoms etc yet I might not even have ovulated yet!! I just wish I knew how long this cycle was gonna be. I've ordered some FertilAid tho so hopefully that will sort out my cycles for next month.
