  • When you are preparing for ovulation your body will give you signs. At the beginning of your cycle your vaginal discharge will be dry/sticky. As you approach ovulation it will change to creamy and then to "eggwhite". This is clear, stretchy and very much resembles raw eggwhites. Many women will experience cramping around the time of ovulation. Many women don't.

    The other sign you didn't mention was basal temperature. Taking your temperature every day when you first wake up will let you know when you've actually ovulated. Before ovulation you'll notice it fluctuating within a certain range. After you ovulate, you produce progesterone which causes your temperature to rise typically between .5 and 1 degree.

  • The best way to tell if you are ovulating is to chart cervical mucus.

    When the mucus is clear and stretching like raw egg whites that means you are producing fertile mucus and should be baby dancing if you want to be pregnant.

    Many women, including myself, experience abdominal cramping during ovulation. Most of the time it is mild and is on the side you are ovulating from but some women experience stronger cramps throughout the abdomen.
