I started having the egg white this morning. Does anyone know approx. how long after you start having the egg white that you ovulate? Or once you see that does that mean you have already ovulated? DH and I bd night before last. Hoping we catch the egg this time around.

Thanks!

I have looked at a lot of charts over on fertility friend and it seems like some people just of EWCM one day, usually the day they ovulate, or they may have it for a few days before hand. If i were you I would also get busy tonight!

Good luck I hope you catch the egg!!

i would definitely consider yourself at your most fertile when you see EWCM! for me, sometimes i don't get a temp shift until a day or two after ewcm dries up, but that just means it took a minute for my temp to rise, i am pretty sure i actually O'd on the day of the fertile mucus.

sounds like it's time to party for you good luck! hope you catch the egg!!

absolutely positive it's EWCM? considering that you DTD last night it could be something else?... I'm still learning to differentiate. I had EWCM in the am and immediately did an OPK which was positive. Good luck!

ditto, i have ewcm for several days *sometimes*

this month seems to be one of those.... can be maddening b/c just like the temp shift, you have to get past it till you know... but hey, more than one day is good for the sperms, so i'm not complaining!

I get 4 or 5 days of EW before O'ing, and then usually another day or two after O.
