Well, I counted my CM in the middle of the cycle as my EWCM; it wasn't the best quality I have ever had (last month, when I quit the pill, I had Niagara Falls so I knew for sure). I'm new at totally analyzing my cm though. I have a lot that I wouldn't call sticky but I wouldn't call true EW, and it's not the creamy kind so I just don't know. However, what I thought I should consider EW this month coincided with a thermal rise and happened on day 16, which should be about right as my cycles are normally about 28 days. Also, I had 2 days of very light spotting indicating ovulation....so I figured that was it. But now I definitely have that lotiony kind and my temp has gone from over 97.9 back down to my coverline of 97.7. And I can say that most of my temps, though I never get 3 hours of sleep beforehand thanks to DS, have been right where they should be. It's just confusing, I've never paid so much attention to CM before LOL.
Last month I had a really long cycle. I was on the minipill but near the end of the cycle I suspected pregnancy (I had messed up the pills and had some weird symptoms) so I stopped the pill around day 22 or so just in case. I apparently ovulated shortly after that and had a 6 week cycle (obviously wasn't pregnant LOL).
So that's it in a nutshell. I've been charting online too just to get more input. Though where BD is noted we were using protection when I was fertile.
