Hello ladies I am new to the TTC forum, My name is Eve, Im 24 and TTC my #2. My predicted ovulation date is the 24th and today I went to track my CM and my cervical position. Yesterday CM was scant and my cervix was low and closed. Today I had some slightly stretchy CM and my cervix was much more opened. I took two OPK's one in the am and one in the evening and both were negative. at the moment Im having some light cramping feelings, am I in the early stages before ovulating? I have never tracked this before, and Ive been taking the OPK's since CD 10. Im scared that I might be missing my window to conceive so I wanted to know if it's just still too early. I want to just go ahead and DTD like right now, but I would like to hold off until closer to ovulation. Should I wait till I have more of a constant flow of EWCM? Thanks for the advice!
i always get EWCM a couple of days before O so you are probably just getting ready. Unless your DH has issues with sperm numbers, etc, then it wouldnt hurt to start BDing early and just continue until you O. Sperm can live up to 5 days in there so even if you dont O for a couple of days you would still have a good shot at it if you started now.

to the board! I agree with the other ladies- you are probably gearing up to O. I always have EWCM 3-5 days before I O. Since sperm can live in EWCM or fertile CM up to 5 days, it wouldn't hurt to BD- is there a reason you said you wanted to hold off? Good luck!
