So, I have a question that I am mostly just wondering about... I use the Taking Charge of Your Fertility software to just keep track of my actual bleeding days, spotting days, and my cm all other days. I don't temp. My cycle has always been very regular, and so this works for me- we conceived DD on the first try.
I'm in a 2ww now... and I'm wondering about how to record some days. There are days when I have basically no CM at all, and then I'll poop and there will be a big glug of creamy, lotiony cm. Obviously, the pressure makes something appear.... but, on the day when I've had 5 bathroom trips that are "dry/nothing" and then one that has "creamy, lotiony" what should I check for that day?
I do know that heavy, thick, creamy, lotiony cm is very normal for me- I've always had it, and have it for more of the month than most other women do. And I don't know how much of a difference it makes in what I'm recording- I don't mix it up with EWCM ever...so...who knows.
Anyway...just wondering what some of you might do in that instance?

When I was charting usually I charted the most fertile cm I saw for the day. This obviously makes a big diff with EW and Watery, but not really with anything else.
I usually update my chart to reflect the most fertile cm I get for that given day. Fertile CM can show up anytime, so only charting what you find when you first potty in the morning isn't always the best. I find things work their way out of my system more when i'm up and moving around.
