<p>I've been charting for 65 months..yeah, long time.  Anyway, I am noticing a lot of creamy-ish fluid now which is highly unusual for me.  I am 6 dpo.  I usually get a bit for 1-2 days before my period, but usually I am totally dry after ovulation.  My LP is usually 12-13 days.  I was dry for like 4 days and the last 2 days I have this.  This is our first month TTC and I'm new to the boards so I don't know if this is a sign of anything or not.  I'm actually not reading into things like I assumed I would, but I thought I'd ask.  I have had heart burn the last two days which I NEVER have.  I have no idea if that means anything.  I know pregnant women can have that sometimes, but I assumed that was later in pregnancy when the baby is taking up room.  Thanks.</p>

<p>Could be early pregnancy signs or just something random. It's so hard not to over analyze everything when you're TTC. Pretty much anything can be a sign and you drive yourself crazy, lol! Not that I'm recommending it, but I always end up testing starting at like 7 dpo even though I know it's too early. Good thing there's Dollar Tree tests!</p>

<p>I've read that a lot of women get a second surge of hormones about a week after O, which can cause some extra CM.  However, I've also read (don't ask me where, I read waaaay too much stuff about TTC online) that pregnant women can get an even high second surge of hormones, causing more of them to get the extra CM.  I don't get the extra CM every month, but I do fairly regularly.  I hope for you that it's a good sign! </p>

<p>I think the creamy cm is caused by progesterone. So it means your progesterone is higher than usual. This can be caused by pregnancy,  but it could also just be...more progesterone. I had this i my last two cycles. I wasnt pregnant, but my luteal phase, which had been short, got longer <span><img alt="shrug.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/shrug.gif"></span></p>

<p>I have heard a lot of women see that as an early pg sign, but also second the comment about over analyzing being your first month TTC. You could always get it and just never paid attention until now! LOL Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks Ladies.</p>

<p>I actually have been surprisingly not looking into things because I really think there's no way in %$#@ that I will get a BFP.  It is probably nothing, but it is odd for me.  I charted really well in the past because DH and I used charting to avoid pregnancy while I was ill (long term medical stuff) so we abstained whenever there was any fluid.  We shall see.  The only possible pregnancy stuff I have right now (only 7 dpo) is heartburn (highly unusual for me, but I think it's the fish oil pills), peeing more (but could be more fluid intake), and the CM. </p>

<p>As far as patterns...hmm...like what kinda things?  I'm a bit of a weirdo since I was sick for so long so take my thoughts with a grain of salt.  My personal pattern is that I get my temp spike 2 days after my peak day of EWCM instead of the next day.  I tend to get some CM just before my period.  I am low in DHEA and taking it helps me ovulate on time.  I have ovulated every single month for 65 months except 2 months in a row when doc put me on estrogen (needless to say I stopped taking it).  If my ovulation is late, my luteal phase tends to be shorter resulting in me having a similar length cycle.  I had short LP's before using progesterone.  High stress tends to lower my temps.  I have thyroid issues so I notice increases in my temps when I have increased my thyroid dose.  Not sure how helpful my patterns are...</p>
