Hello ~<br><br>
I some questions about ovulation.... I am so sorry for being so detailed here..... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br>
Okay.. I am on CD15 and I have not seen any signs of ovulation until just now! I just used the restroom and when I used the toliet tissue I had a huge mess! My cm was extremely clear and just like egg whites! I have never had it like this before. I have been drinking green tea and takinga little bit of robitussin. I am not sure if this is why or not though. Anyway... at the same restroom break I used a ovulation test and it came back negative??? Now I am extremely confused? Could it just have been from the bd last night? I have used the restroom many times since. ????<br><br>
Also,... just as a side question... if this is it...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx">: and my husband really wants a girl (I just want a healthy baby).... should we bd again tonight? The reason I ask is because I did orgasim last night during bd and I had read somewhere that if you want a girl that the female should not orgasim????? Just wondering.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I would like to make my husband happy with a little girl. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

hi rachel!<br>
yes, this could very well be it!<br>
don't be discouraged by the negative opk. you can have ewcm several days before O, especially when taking the robitussin and green tea. ANYTIME you see fertile cm like this is the time to start bding. as for trying for a girl now would certainly be a good time!

Yes the opks and cm days dont have to match. You have a window there. If you get a positive opk that means that you havent ovulated yet. You should start bding, but you shouldnt ovulated for a day or so after. Chances are that it happened the way Rachels said or the other way around. I got my positive opk, then the next day my tissue was soaked with eggwhite cm. The trick is to bd all those days.that way you have sperm there before during and after ovulation. Before ovulation help better your chances for a girl and here is why<br><br>
Male sperm are smaller and faster, but weaker and dont live as long.<br><br>
Female sperm are bigger and slower, but live longer.<br><br>
If you bd before you ovulate then the male sperm will have made to quickly and there is no egg before they die. The female sperm will be slower and will make it there and all males have died out. If you bd again then you will have an equal chance for ds or dd. And if you bd after ovulation, the male sperm still have time to get to the egg, where as the females wont.

chances are if you already had the cm then you would have gotten the positive opk the day before. that means you missed your chance to get a positive opk, but your cm told you it was time. If you were on cd15 when you saw cm then the opk wouldhave been positive on cd13 or 14 which means you ovulated on cd15 or 16... that is how my body works. I actually o'd on cd15 this cycle.
