My discharge this last week has been....mixed. I feel very wet, and then just stretchy and then wet and stretchy...but when they talk about "sticky" I don't really know what that is. Is that the stretchy snot looking stuff? I know I'm not ovulating since I'm due to start my period tomorrow so its not that and I o'd about 10 days ago.
Question #2 my boobs hurt. But I'm curious, when they talk about tender breasts, are we talking about a bruising feeling or sharp pains for what? Its been almost 6 years since I have looked for these symptoms and I just don't really remember what I was feeling. I'm getting sharp pains, but then at times it feels like someone just boobpunched me!

I'm not sure about the discharge, last time I was pregnant I didn't have any after ovulation!
As for boob pain, I didn't get it my last pregnancy but in my first they did feel sore. It was only very mild though, until the milk came in and then it felt like someone had jabbed me really hard at random places in my boobs. I've been having that same bruised/jabbed feeling for the past two days myself so I'm hoping this is a positive sign for me. At any rate in my experience the pains are kind of sharp.
CM is always different for me in the luteal phase. One day I will have watery cm, the next day lotiony/creamy, and the next dry. It's rarely Egg White CM (which is the stretchy snot stuff) during the luteal phase. The word "sticky" also confuses me. I think its somewhere between dry and creamy. Haha.
Boob pain can happen before AF and is also a pregnancy symptom, so thats a hard one. I usually get boob pain anywhere up to 5-7 days before AF. But its barely noticeable and usually happens on the sides near my armpits. However this time...I got boob pain at 3-4dpo. AND, they are painful...I feel like a 6th grader again...ouch. I know that's crazy to even think it could be a pregnancy symptom since its so early. But I can't help but be extremely curious.
So gross, BUT when I wipe it kind of looks like someone with a cold blew their nose into the toilet paper. So disgusting, I'm sorry lol
I don't remember what the discharge was like at the beginning of pregnancy, but I would describe the boob pain to be more of an ache. Kind of like when you exercise too much and your muscles are achy. That would happen before AF too, but it is much more pronounced at the beginning of pregnancy.
