watery vs creamy CM confusion - first cycle TTC


Hi!! This is the first cycle TTC #1 with DH (I'm super pumped) I've been tracking CM and doing OPKs every day since AF to get an idea of my full cycle. I thought CM would be straight forward, but there appears to be a margin of error that I didn't expect. So, immediately after AF CM was decidedly creamy, and thinned out over the next couple of days.

But today, CD 11, I'm confused.

Because it's like... significantly more moisture all around down there and 90% watery with a little tiny little weensy bit of lotion-y creamy-ness. So do I classify this as watery, or do I classify as creamy?

I've had negative OPKs daily since CD 8 as predicted. Regardless of CM or OPK result, I'll be doing the do with DH from today onward until CD 16-17 ish. It's just a matter of curiosity, really, and I'm curious as to whether there are other ladies who have this watery-but-not-entirely-so CM. Are thre other ladies out there who have a couple of days when it's watery but not totally clear?

Thanks for your feedback ladies!!!

My CM can go all over the place. There were a few cycles when I never got ewcm, but still ovulated, or where I got ewcm a few days after O. Where it's nice to know what our bodies are doing know that CM isn't a tell-all. It's best to pair it with OPKs and temping to pinpoint your O day.

Good luck!

That's good to know! I'm thinking back and wondering if I've regularly seen any EWCM randomly over the years. I'm sure I have sometimes, but it doesn't seem like I get it regularly. I suppose I'll just have to be patient and see... TTC is really a test in letting go of control, and learning patience. It simultaneously sucks and is amazing

It really is! Also, if you take an antihistamine that can take CM away cause it dries you up. Gotta love our bodies.

that's also good to know! Fingers crossed we won't still be trying when antihistamine is relevant CM today was definitely watery, without a trace of colour. So let the trying begin!!! *does little dance*

It's already relevant where I'm at, but my body doesn't seem to care about it and still produces cm (my body is weird).

yay for watery CM!

Mine did actually thin out. I had EWCM for a few hours last night and I was like oh yay but then this morning it's watery again. Research tells me that's nor abnormal though, to have EWCM come and go.... This is less straight forward than I thought it would be!

I have EWCM on Monday and ovulated on Wednesday with watery cm. Sometimes you don't get it on the day of ovulation. From what I've read each woman is different, but so is each cycle. That's why it's best to track all of your symptoms together, including temping.
