  • Ever since I've had kids I can tell when I ovulate. It's like a swollen achy pain for me. Not necessarily crampy like when you're having your period, but not comfortable either. I feel bloated also.

  • Just be yourself and I don't believe you feel anything you just do (ovulate) or get you one of those ovulating test. I personally would wait til you see a clear discharge that looks like egg white then I believe is when you are ovulating but that is just me. If you are trying to get pregnant don't concentrate too much on it let it happen just relax and don't be so anxious. It will happen sooner or later

  • For some people Ovulation pain is before, some are during and some are after Ovulation. These pains are called Mittelschmerz....
