Ok so I never tried to do all this checking my cervix and CM stuff before. I was very lucky and got pregnant easily with my first 2. So now I am trying all of it and I am getting confused. I know it takes a few months to get used to what everything is and what it feels like. I have a very irregular cycle. So I have no clue when I ovulate or when AF will decide to show up. I barely get any signs IF ANY when AF comes. It just appears one day. ANYWAY....... I have noticed that today my cervix is VERY high today. (almost impossible to find) BUT it seems like I don't have any CM, and the cervix feels kinda firm still. So I don't know what to think.
I also have been breaking out for some reason and I don't know why. I never break out this badly. Face and CHEST is that a sign of ovulation???

Try charting your temperature as well, that will tell you for sure when you ovulated and when to expect your period (it's been a lifesaver for me, I have extremely irregular periods, so I do it even when not TTC just to know). I never really got the cervix thing, but I do know that you're supposed to check it at the same time and preferably in the same position every day so you'll notice any changes, because apparently it can change during the day as well. The mucus is different for everyone, but fertile mucus usually looks like eggwhites (literally), and there's more of it than normal. The best thing is to monitor it for a couple of months so you'll get to know your norms, and that'll make it easier for you.
