Most women need to produce this mucus. Cervical mucus happens when you are ovulating, absence of mucus, means you are probably not ovulating that month. Also an abundance of mucus occurs when you are pregnant. This happens because your body is producing it to create a plug.. If you think you are pregnant take a test closer to your expected period or a day after. Some hpt test don't pick up the hcg levels in you body until you are closer to your expected period. I hope this helps

Well if you are dead on sure you had sex during your ovulation days then the feeling you are getting could posssibily be the start of a pregnancy.

When did this all occur?

I am also on a 28 days cycle, I also knew when I conceived my next baby, I had this knawing feeling the pit of my stomach, also down alittle where my uterus starts. Plus I started cramping a week and 1/2 earlier then usual before my expected period and now low and behold i'm pregnant. 5 weeks :d :shock: :wink:


let me know

Hi
Baby blues,
i think you could devinatly be pregnant. I think I am about to be too =-) I hope you're happy about it, if not we're here if you need a cyber shoulder to cry on. But also I was wondering if you girls smell 'salty' around your time of ovulation. For me my cervical fluid starts smelling kinda like salt water, probably due to it's high water content, but does anyone notice that. I have habit of smelling it when I check.... I know it sounds gross but that tells me if what i'm looking at is semen, if it has blood in it, or of i'm starting to have an infection. Anyhow, I think that my little monthly visitor won't be showing up for a while. I felt definate ovulation pain and i've been charting my cervical fluid and position. I have a hard time w/ my temp. It's very consistant but I wake up 1-2 times a night to pee (always have... Ever sense I was really little) and so my temps are always too high to be able to tell anything. I've had my thyroid checked and everything's fine but anyhow. Does anyone have any experience with any of these things?

Cervical mucus and ovulation
I'm having a hard time getting prego. I am tracking my cycle and testing with first response stix. My question is, i notice that I have CM for 1 to 2 weeks before my period and I always get a negative reading on my ovulation stick. If i am having so much CM discharge...does that mean i am ovulating or getting ready to ovulate? I am a having a hard time pinning the the time frame down. Additionally, i don't have a reg 28 day period. I used to until i began to get pregnant. Now i have a 28 day period and a 35...i never know. One this is for sure there is always a lot of CM discharge, any help would be great!! thanks!
