Ive had increased sex drive, sleepy, and lots of slimy egg white discharge, a tiny amount of reddish brownish too and increased appetite. I reached LH surge yesterday afternoon thru evening based on kit. I had sex each day 2 days prior to surge. So my guess is I'm ovulating today. My surge is not detected by OV tests today.
