  • If you type in a search engine - there are tons of articles on this!!

    The reason I looked is I was confused and concerned. I definitely had EWCM about 2wks ago, and then got some more today and thought 'WTF?!''
  • ah this may clear it up for me then because i thought i ov'd early about cd 5 and then i wasn't sure as i then got more cm on cd 14! didnt think i was going mad. thank you for putting that up. do you think it would explain y some women get a possitive test early (ie they have caught from ealrier ov) and some dont get bfp for about a wekk later (they caught on later ov)? oh while you are here answering my silly questions what is PMA? sorry but im still new to this and find it quite confusing! im hoping this will be a good month for me (and all of you aswel) as i do think i ov'd on cd 5 and have been feeling like ive been on a boat on choppy water for last few days.

  • Positive Mental Attitude!!!xx
  • PMA = positive mental attitude!!

    You look similar to me then - OV around 2wks ish apart!!

    I think both your theories could be correct - i read that a woman got PG on CD24 of 31 day cycle!!

    I thought I was going mad too!! But maybe not?! It could also explain why so many 'accidents' happen. I always thought it was odd if there was only a few days to fall that accidents happened so much!! I read that some woman can OV 3 times!!

  • haha thank you so much for them. ill save them somewhere for reference! you girls are so helpful,thanks again. my friend told me you can only fall pregant in about 2 days a month. so glad i wont have to ask again-did i ov or not. coz i know now that maybe it just ov twice, hey double chances then!
  • Exactly - here's hoping!! lol xx
  • women can ov at least twice a month - i have on a few months, then not ov at all on other months.... :\( (using ov sticks to test for it)

    interesting articles.

  • Wow S.Y. - nice to hear someone we know has actually seen this!! thanks!!
  • I ov twice in one month where i concieved non identical twins concieved at different times of the month. Unfortunatly it sadly ended at 11+5. Now finding it really difficult that i can not even manage one let alone two
  • I'm sorry Emzyv - that must be hard. Fingers crossed it all sorts itself out for you xx silly question - is 11+5 11weeks 5days?
  • What a great article! Now I'm going to be looking out for ov pains constantly.
  • OMG!!!!! I was wondering if this was poss??? Though I have pains but no EWCM so i do think if I did OV it was only once this month but thank you soooo much for this. Love that i got a mention lol HEE HEE
