I'm monitoring my CM in prep for trying for a baby. I used to have plenty of it at a certain time of month. This month I noticed while it was egg white consistency for a few days on my first few fertile days, it didn't get very watery like it used to. Getting a bit worried that being drier isn't a great sign. Anyone have any insights please? shock

Egg white is the important bit. And the watery is before egg white. Period, snot, water, egg white, gritty glue, period! So I wouldn't worry. Alsorts of hormones play apart, as does your hydration, if you have a cold, stress etc.

Thanks - that's assured me. I'll keep monitoring!

Also, make sure you're drinking plenty of water. Hydration has a real part to play here.

Will do. I never thought I was bad at that but I guess I need to push harder

Ok sorry another question. If I am dry leading up to ovulation though (but I'm still getting slight twinges showing I am ovulating) does that mean I'm not fertile and there's no point in trying? I only am wet for two of my five fertile days - is that normal?
