Egg white discharge?

Do you definitely have egg white like discharge when ovulating? How stretchy does it have to be? I am frantically trying to track ovulation. Got a sort of ok from a predictor kit on day 12 , today is day 14 and I have increased discharge which is a bit stretchy (i.e. a few cm) whereas the description I read said you had to be able to stretch it for a few INCHES. We're DTD every day anyway but I am getting obsessed. Thanks all.

I'm not sure I've ever managed to stretch it a few inches blush
I think you just need to track for a few cycles to figure out what's normal for you. Hopefully you'll get pregnant before that though!
If you're DTD every day anyway then you'll be covered.

Probably everyone is different. I am sure many would not even try stretching their discharge! I could always stretch mine a good few inches. I also always got a tummy pain just before ovulation (it was either left or right side depending on which ovary etc). I created a lot of charts. Never managed to get pregnant though and ended up with IVF twice! Don't over think it. Ohhh, and (going back a few years) the recommendation was to be DTD every other day. I recall about a 5 day window for stretchy discharge and getting pregnant. What I do know is that however long your cycle is, from the day you ovulate it is (on average) 14 days until your next period. So if your cycle is short, it could only be a few days from period ending to ovulation time. Good luck.
