    Hi again hun! Some of the ladies here have loads of knowledge on these things, but I look for EWCM and slight OV Pain as an indicator, although it happened a bit earlier than expected this month. At least if you get that you know when to start Bd'g a bit more! Hope you get your answers! And look at you doin it all properly! I'm not allowed - OH says it's all to regimented! Boo hiss to him xxx Good luck sweetie :hugs:

    By the time you see your temp rise, it's too late to use your kit as it rises on the day after ovulation.

    As glitterbug says, one of the best signs is EWCM, start using your OPKs when you see that and you'll be bound to catch it. If you don't get much EWCM, I would start using them around CD10 as it's very unusual to OV before then.

    Good luck and lots of baby dust to you.

    EWCM is egg white cervical mucus, because it looks just like that, raw egg whites, it will be clear and will stretch between your thumb and your finger easily to an inch long or more. CD is what cycle day you are on. and with a 32 day cycle you should start testing on CD 16, test every day until you see a clear thermal shift in your chart. EWCM is not a reliable way to know when you will ovulate, I get mine usually a good 4-5 days before i ovulate. i have a 32 day cycle as well, and usually ovulate on CD22, but i have a short LP, most women will ovulate sooner than that with a 32 day cycle. LP= luteal phase, the amount of time between Ovulation and :witch:. also, the ideal time to :sex: is the day BEFORE you get your positive OPK. frustrating i know, but when you start testing go ahead and start BD'ing every other day as well, then every day from the time you get your positive OPK until the day after it goes negative or until you see your shift. good luck, hope this helps.
