Re: Do I need EWCM to conceive?

Hey Radchick ~
When I conceived baby #2 (currently pregnant), I had lots of the same kind of mucus you are referring to - very abundant and slippery. I think they use the term EWCM so women know it's not just the "normal" stuff that sometimes appears. It is supposed to be a lot. I remember going into the OB for a checkup on a Wednesday, and she said, "Well, it's primetime for baby making time b/c you have 'happy mucus'". I didn't even know I had it, lol.
We then conceived this child on that Saturday...so there may be quite a few days of you having this. (I have a 28/29 day cycle and conceived on day 15).
Also, have you tried using ovulation predictor kits? You can get them at the dollar store. When we conceived, I got a strong positive on day 15 at around 2pm, and it was negative at 8pm...we did the deed that night around 11pm.
Good luck to you and your hubby!
