hi guys, new to this topic. and starting to chart but wanted help from you experts!

ok im about to or have already ovulated and im just charting to get used to my cycles. this is gross but when looking for EWCM (i usually have a lot), does it always have to be clear? bc sometimes i see VERY stretchy CM but its thicker and white and it hangs out (and stretches really long!) after a BM or just peeing. would i consider that EW bc it stretches for a large length?

ive been BBT'ing, and im sometimes 15-30min late to take my temp (bc i dont always hear my husb's alarm..hehe i use his), and ive noticed the my temps arent significantly different. does anyyone think that 15-30min makes a big difference? guess i already know the answer to that one!

heres my chart if it helps (hope th elink works)

Hi there!

I think that it still counts as EWCM even if it's not totally clear. If it's stretchy like actual egg whites, that is what matters. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

As for the temping times, 15-30 minutes shouldn't make a difference at all. FF will generally give you one of those open circles if you enter a time that is an hour or more off. I think what's most important is that you've had at least 3 consecutive hours of sleep.

I hope this helps and good luck!!

I agree with the other poster. Sounds like good CM. and just enter in the exact time that you too the temp and if it is too far away from the normal time then you will get an open circle.

thanks you guys it does help. my temps are so weird i had a dip then a rise but not for a certain consecutive amount of days, so no ovulation detected yet. my "ewcm" comes and goes during the day and day to day. why cant i have a perfect predictable cycle?
