    what is the difference in CM before period and in early pregnancy? ive been getting alot of creamy white cm. I got a very very fainy BFP on a HPT yesterday morning (but still not 100% convinced it wasnt an evap, so not getting too over excited yet..well trying!).

    If you have been pregnant before, what was your CM like before your BFP compared to before your period?

    Thanks!

    Hi, I only just got my bfp, and I had really creamy cm then it turned to water.. but this has happened all the other months, last few days it was like a gross snotty texture, which was different for me, big lumps of it!

    Hello :)

    My CM before my last pregnancy (which unfortunately ended as a MMC) was very wet, creamy...More like a watery texture but creamy in colour. Usually my CM before AF is non existent so it was unusual for me to get so much.

    Good luck testing, hope you get your BFP xxx

    Hi,

    I'm interested to find out what you pregnant ladies say as i'm also getting a lot of CM, this is VERY different for me. I normally get nothing until i start spotting at 12/13 DPO.

    Thanks
    Claire

    Creamy, tinged with brown/pink. Exactly how it looks before my period. Exactly. (I spot for 2-3 days before my period, and spotted for 3 days before my BFP.)

    So that was probably no help! But I guess, moral of the story is don't be discouraged if it looks same as usual.

    Edited to add: In 5 days since BFP, it's just creamy with no color tint, and doesn't seem to be in any larger amount than usual.

    My CM is creamy but there's not a lot and usually before AF I don't have any cm.

    I also have creamy cm and I'm between 6-10dpo (I don't temp just check CM) I tested today and got a BFN but I am hoping and praying and really driving myself insane hoping the creamy cervical mucus means something.

    Trying to conceive our fourth child. Didn't really have to do much with the first three boys but thought we would mix it up this time and do things different.. now I'm testing everyday and making myself a nervous wreck.. suppose to start this Saturday and today I have had very sticky weird discharge. Along with sore blobs back pain acne and food cravings. Every test so far has been negative.. just waiting on a clear positive

    Hello all! I know this is an old thread but thought I would add my experience for any future readers :) I got a lot of creamy and wet CM for over a week before my last period (it stopped in the day before AF came). I could have sworn I was pregnant because that had never really happened to me! I could feel the CM dripping down sometimes!

    With DD, I didn't really notice anything before my BFP. Also, in my other cycles I had never noticed this much CM before AF before!

    So it just goes to show that every body is different and even some cycles are different.

    from what I can see from the other reviewers, the snotty CM definitely seems to be a sign though!

    I'm 7 dpo and I swear I had a FAINT positive this morning, which I'm praying wasn't a ghost line. My lower back is super achy, and I've been cramping slightly, and I've had some thick stretchy tinged slightly yellow cm. I'm hoping someone can give me some feed back... :shrug:

    For me personally, CM has always meant nothing. There are no steady trends.

    BFP #1 - mostly dry CM, EWCM on 10 dpo, and back to dry

    BFP #2 - creamy CM throughout the whole cycle, turned to school glue close to AF

    AF - creamy CM throughout TWW

    I've learned not to use CM as an indicator of anything.

    When discussing CM, is it what you observe as discharge (on your panty) or when actually testing (finger test)?

    Either, sometimes it doesn't make it to the knickers but is still there - I mostly find looking on the toilet paper after wiping is the easiest way to tell.
