What is up with my body?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys...I am confused about what is up with my body. I have been having close to 28 day cycles lately but they vary from 25-32 or so. No matter the length of my cycle, I always have felt confident in the past that I have O'd on CD14, going by CM mostly, sometime crampiness, crazy libido surge, etc. I don't temp or do OPKs. This month I "should" have O'd on Monday but I haven't noticed a bit of EWCM this cycle, just creamy. We dtd  twice unprotected over the weekend and the only thing I can think of is that I O'd earlier than usual (Fri or Sat) and mistook my CM as semen or something. I know for sure it was creamy Sunday and only when I woke up on Monday did I have a little..gush? of watery CM and that was it, has stayed creamy. Have I just not O'd yet or did I probably O early? Since learning about CM and signs of O, i can't think of a time where it was never noticeable. I usually have at least one day or more of EWCM. Are anovulatory cycles very common? I know this is totally normal conversation around here but I'm not too used to discussing my CM with others! Thanks for any insight...I'm really trying to figure out what might be up AND if my chances of being pregnant are way higher or lower than I expected. Unexpected is okay with me, but not as much with SO.

I think its hard to say especially if you don't temp or use OPKs. I know some months, if I'm dehyrated or something I don't have a lot of EWCM and other months it's very obvious. But, for me I honestly can't tell just based off of my CM. My O date ususally is the same reguardless of how long my LH phase is, too. If you are wanting to conceive then I would just keep having intercourse every other day for the next couple of days, ya know? Is there a reason you don't track with OPKs or temps?

Thanks for your response! I didn't think about dehydration as a possible cause. It just always happens. I know there is really no way to tell without having charted. I don't temp or use OPKs because we're not actively trying, but obviously not preventing all the time. Timing would not be so good right now, but so far, I haven't seen a time that really is :) So, if I O'd early and didn't notice (weird) and the chance is higher than I'd have thought-- it's okay, but I do think SO would probably freak out a bit. On to the superfun TWW, I guess... (unless I haven't even O'd at all yet!!!)

Not knowing even roughly when I O'd is bugging me more and more-- I've been crampy and suddenly in a ragey mood, but shouldn't start/test for over a week. Ugh, just had to whine. I'm usually way more in tune!
