Lizzie asks…

Help me interpret these ovulation signs?

I typically ovulate like clockwork according to Ovulation Prediction Kits and my period.

This month, I barely got a change (from faint to darker faint, but still not as strong as the test line) in the OPK test.

I think I have good CM today. Am I ovulating?

How do I interpret the OPK result?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Some months I got a true positive and some months I didn’t. In Feb I did not get a true positive. I did however get a dark line but not as dark as the control line. For me when it take 8 minutes for a faint line to pop up I counted that as negative. In Feb it popped up very fast but never got as dark as the control line. I counted that as my positive. I tested twice a day to be sure I wasn’t missing my surge as for me it doesn’t last long. A lot of women told me that I didnt Ovulate caseu the line was not as dark, but obviously I did because I am 5 weeks pregnant. If you have fertile cervical fluid and the line came up quicker than normal I would say yes you are ovulating. Keep in mind that everyone is different, and you should start charting your temp. It will help you track your cycle so you have a better idea of what is going on. Good Luck

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I kept a sort of journal while TTC and here’s some of my notes from when I got my BFP (I just copied and pasted so the writing is from in the moment):

Dec 09-Dec 14: AF
Dec 24: O day

Dec 27-3dpo: Started getting cramps in the p.m.
Dec 29-5dpo: Slept for 10 hours last night and still tired this morning. Was super hungry even after eating but it’s normal for me to have an increased appetite after O until AF. Also had a really stuffy nose when I woke up but went away after I got moving around so I’ll attribute that to poor circulation or something. Had heartburn all day too.
Dec 30-6dpo: Nausea and dizziness while grocery shopping. Laid down to take a nap at 3pm didn’t wake up till midnight.
Jan 01-8dpo: No sore boobs yet and I checked last cycle and I got sore boobs at CD 22/7 DPO so it’s possible they’re still show up. But I’ll take it as a good sign that they haven’t yet
Jan 02-9dpo: Sore boobs on and off and only sore on top instead of the usual underarm area. Last night I went to bed at 5:30pm woke up at 5:00am this morning then took a nap from 8am-10am and now it’s 5:40pm and I could honestly sleep till tomorrow again!
Jan 03-10dpo: Mild AF like cramps on and off; not painful.
Jan 04-11dpo: BFP!!!!! @ 2:30pm

Donna asks…

Should i go by physical signs of ovulation or ovulation Calender? who else is 5dpo?

My last cycle was 33 days,but it varys ive had 27,29,32 day cycles.
Im on CD 21 (5 dpo according to fertility friend)

CD 10 i had physical signs of ovulation, very bad cramps,back pain and little ewcm.
so if i go by this i would actually be 11 dpo.

Should i just go by the calender so i dont drive myself crazy?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I would personally go by what your body is telling you. FertilityFriend has me 5dpo, but I think I’m actually about 6. I had the most ewcm mucus, sho cervix and felt a little pain in my right side. The way I look at it is that no way can a computer be 100% correct, it’s just going by statistics. But, I’m only a day off compared to you being a little more.

Trying to conceive can drive us all crazy!

Good luck!

Helen asks…

Vaginal Discharge After Ovulation and signs of pregnancy?

Vaginal Discharge After Ovulation?
I ovulated around May 12th or 13th, and I noticed today and yesterday I had excess vaginal discharge. It is clear and wet(sorry TMI). It isn’t an infection either. Is this normal or what could it be?

And when did everyone start showing signs of pregnancy?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Your discharge sounds like EWCM (egg white cervical mucous), EWCM usually indicates ovulation.

Generally pregnancy symptoms don’t appear til around the 6th week.
