  • you only ovulate one day. did you have the clear cervical mucus from the 5th to the 7th? i have read on fertility and TTC websites that the clear stretchy cervical mucus often starts 2-3 days before ovulation, and then the last day of it is the day of ovulation. :) i would say that any cramps could be implantation but honestly i think it's too soon for implantation. good luck! i ovulated around the 3rd, so i know how you are feeling. the waiting sucks! you might want to join the trying to conceive group here on cafemom. there are a lot of ladies with a lot of TTC knowledge there. :)

  • Ovulation is always accompanied with "raw egg white" cervical mucus it may be "streaky" but mostly clear. Most women will switch to a creamy or slippery mucus shortly after ovulation. (Yes kinda looks like lotion). The cramping could simply be gas or it could be residual pain from ovulation (example Mittleschmerz) Like I suggest to all TTC women you should check out the site I gained insane amounts of knowledge concerning fertility and my cycle. The free trial is something like 6 months and after the 6 you are put on a "basic" version but many of the features are still available for use.
