On CD 13 I had cramping all day on my left side, mild in the morning and working it's way up to strong in the evening. It finally quit around 11 pm ish. The next day I checked CM and it was egg white in the morning and by evening it was sticky, and my temp wasn't above the coverline that morning. It did jump up the next day.

So, does anyone know if you actually ovulate when the cramping is over, or is it only after the temps jumps up?

Cramping is a vague indicator of ovulation. You can cramp during several days leading up to ovulation, when the follicles in the ovaries are stimulated. You can cramp when the egg is released from the ovary. And you can cramp during the days after ovulation, from the contracting of the fallopian tubes in case an embryo needs help making the trip down to the uterus. It's really quite impossible to know what stage you're at just by the pain.

Temperatures can rise just before ovulation or up to 4 days after the egg is released. It tells us about when ovulation occurs, but not the exact day.

When cervical mucus changes from giving you a slippery feeling when you walk around to suddenly not making you slippery anymore, that's the time closest to ovulation. Ovulation usually occurs on the last day with a slippery feeling or within the 2 days after the slippery feeling stops.

Nothing except a daily ultrasound can tell us the exact day of ovulation.
