Background: I am 39 years old. I get my period every 24 days on the dot (I guess that means that I have a 25-day cycle?). I count the first day of my period as day 1. On day 12, I get egg white cervical mucous. On day 13, I get more egg white cervical mucous. After that, I just get watery stuff. On day 25, my period arrives again.
My question: does the EWCM occur WHEN I am ovulating or just BEFORE I ovulate? If it occurs WHEN I am ovulating, then should we be trying on day 10 and 11 rather than on day 12??
For what it is worth, I got pregnant with DD when I was 34 years old, on the second try. We "did the deed" on day 12, - which leads me to believe that the EWCM is a sign that I am about to ovulate, not that I am already ovulating.
We have been trying two months in a row now and no result.
Any other tips, much appreciated! Do I need to bother doing the whole basil thermometer thing given that I am sooooo regular?
