Ladies how would chart CM that feels sticky and watery at the same time? Let me see if I can explain this well...
It's really hard to explain but when I look at my CM for the past week or so, it starts off looking like it's going to be creamy/watery but it also has that crumbly look to it. When you feel it it feels sticky and as the day goes one it I don't really have anything that would resemble creamy. When I get creamy CM I can really feel it down there. This time it feels somewhat sticky, wet and cold. So I've been charting it as sticky and leave it be. Also my cervical position and feel are different than what it's normally like when AF is about to show. Normally I stay low and firm, this time it's changed to midway and medium. I just can't tell if the opening is closed or partially open. I always have a hard time telling those two apart so I haven't charted that for the past few days.
Any help in understanding my screwy body this month is greatly appreciated.
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I think the way you're making your observations might be causing more confusion than clarity. How it feels on your fingertips doesn't really matter. I would actually encourage you to avoiding touching it altogether. How it makes you feel when you walk around during the day is the most important. So if you notice a sticky feeling while you walk around - chart it as "sticky" regardless of how it looks. If you notice a wet or watery feeling while you walk around, chart it as "wet" or "watery" regardless of how it looks. Always chart the most fertile observation of the day.
The touching it thing is hard for me to break since I originally learned a method that had you test the stretchiness of it...but I'm doing better and better all the time at just going off feeling and stuff.
You can stretch if it you want to, but only what you find externally and don't worry about how it feels on your fingertips. The nerve endings at your fingertips are not the same as the nerve endings at the vulva. The vulva is more sensitive to wetness.Don't examine mucus that you find internally.
If it's all just too confusing, you can keep a vaginal sensation record. That will tell you everything you need to know. The appearance, color, stretchability of the mucus is all secondary to how it makes you feel at the vulva.
