    Hi. Just wondered if anyone out there, probably those of you who have already been pregnant, know if egg white cm (sorry tmi) is an early sign of pregnancy.

    my period is only a day late but i would normally have spotting and cramps by now and there is still no sign of the witch. What i do have is quite abit of egg white cm which is extremely unusually for me at this time of the month.

    any advice / previous experience would be appreciated.

    Hi there =)

    I have heard that "all women are different". For instance I am also a day late, and am having little to no CM, when it does occur it is clear.

    With my last pregnancy, I had the same. Little to no CM when usually I had a lot of CM before period. About a week after testing positive, I started getting LOTS of creamy CM.

    So there's really no saying until you TEST.

    I am hoping to test tomorrow morning to be safe. Maybe we'll test around the same time and both end up getting the results we want! :happydance:

    BABY DUST TO YOU!!! :dust:

    you just said it all.... thats how it was for me too. before positive hpt i had creamy but hardly any of it and after i had tons and tons of white creamy cm...

    but never forget every woman and every pregnancy is different...

    good luck!

    I have some EWCM today and I am 7 DPO. I rarely get it during my fertile time too. It is caused by an estrogen surge that happens during the Luteal Phase; it doesn't indicate anything about pregnancy.

    I'm a day late too! Hope we all get BFPs :) Let me know how the testing goes.

    With regards to the EWCM I had that too around and after O, but I always do. There was just abit more this time, I thought AF was coming at one point!!

    well i am on day 30 today and am normally 28 days. i still have quite abit of egg white cm (tmi). i usually start spotting about day 26/27 with full period starting day 28 (normally) but i have nothing so far.

    anyone else feeling like this ... i cant stop going to the loo to check !!!

    I am trying not to think about the whole thing "am i pregnant, arnt i" coz last time i did this i am sure i delayed my period by a couple of days but it is so hard to keep my mind off it !

    does anyone know if stressing like that can actually delay your period ?

    just wondering when to test ... i am usually 28 days but occassionally have been up to day 32 so i am telling myself, i am not really late until day 32 !!

    anyone going thru the same thing ?

    just in case anyone is following this thread and hasnt seen my latest one

    i got my :bfp: this morning - 2 of them in fact. i felt crampy pains last night and just assumed witch was on her way ... this morning, still nothing - so i thought what the heck and did a test. did internet cheapie first, got bfp - couldnt believe it. i had a tesco one in as well, so did that two - and again got bfp .... i cant take it in !!!

    so i guess from my earlier question, egg white cm is obviously an indication of early pregnancy (or it was for me anyway)

    i do have a slight crampy pain which i have had all night so i am abit concerned about that and feel like i cant celebrate just yet - i am hoping that this is normal ... any feedback would be appreciated.

    :hugs::hugs:

    hi claire 911. went to docs this afternoon and she said the cramping is nothing to worry about .... only if it is very severe on one side and with possible blood loss. so i have my fingers crossed for you and that the witch stays away

    ps - i feel like i am still dreaming all this .... i have been wanting a bfp for a very long time !

    Congrats Fizz, that's awesome!! I tend to get ewcm after Ov and just before AF... I totally agree re delaying AF from obsessing though, a watched pot never boils etc!!
