I have only had 1 ppaf since dd2 was born 15 months ago, so my cycles may still be a little wacky. Anyway, I have been trying to keep track of mucous type and when I have ewcm, and it seems that the only time of day I get ANY mucous is in the morning right after I exercise. Five or six mornings a week, I jog around my house (yes, kinda dorky I know..but it is the only way I can exercise while still watching my kids in the winter when it is too cold for them to sit in the stroller), and it seems afterwards when I go to the bathroom I will frequently see mucous...sometimes it is ew and sometimes more tacky...but really the ONLY time I see it is after I exercise, and than the rest of the day I am "dry" or maybe a sensation of "wetness" but no discernable mucous.

Has anyone else noticed, that they only get mucous after exercising. I am wondering if it is cervical mucous I am seeing, which is "shaken down" from jogging around/mixing with sweat. I have had 2 vaginal births and I have read that many woman never totally close up in the cervix after giving birth, so even if it is open just a little could the exercise be making it come out..even if it isn't totally related to fertility? Or maybe, my body just isn't make enough mucous now, and that is why I get so little and only after exercise when movement and sweat makes it come out??

I don't chart temps, so I don't really know when I ovulate..I pretty much just try to keep track of mucous..since right now we are really neither TTC nor TTA..just kinda going with the flow.

I've noticed the same thing. The one time I've ever seen any real EWCM was right after a workout. I'm charting, and it was a couple days before FF pinpointed my ovulation. I've never had children, so that's not a factor in my case.
