From the article: 5 Signs You're Ovulating
When you ovulate, your body gives off certain signals that ovulation is about to occur. Some women are able to calculate ovulation using only these physical signs. So what signs do you use to tell when you are ready to get pregnant? If you're trying to conceive, what signs are you looking for and how do you look for them? What advice do you have for other women who are looking forward to conception and pregnancy? Share Your Signs and Tips

Ovulation Signs

Hello, I've been TTC for over a year. I had a miscarriage last January (2013), and then an ectopic in May :( I am now (December 2012) trying again, and this month my nipples hurt SO bad, and my breasts were very heavy & full. I also had some slight cramping in my abdomen and headaches. I believe these were my ovulation sigs at 16, 17, 18 & 19 days into my cycle. My cycles are not always regular. Sometimes they've been 33 days, and sometimes 36 or 37, but this time I really feel like I ovulated, though I didn't do any other testing for it. Any thoughts from anyone out there????

Moody and horny

It's weird I don't want to become pregnant but when I'm ovulating all I want is sex. I become frustrated and my body spasms any odd time with or without stimulation.

During ovulation

My libido is just WOW like I REALLY enjoy sex the most during ovulation. I have whiteish (I know that's not a word) discharge. Although I enjoy sex most during ovulation sometimes i'll have a little pain in my stomach while doing certain positions that I wouldn't usually have.

This Cycle

I already had a good idea when I ovulate by using OPKs. I get a positive between day 8 and day 13 (in a 21-28 day cycle). + OPKs don't guarantee that you ovulate, but I'm being tested for infertility and the progesterone a week before my period showed I'd ovulated. This cycle, I noticed a swollen, itchy feeling in my left hip (ovary?). Then I noticed a swollen feeling inside (uterus?) and mild cramps/ pressure. I felt travel sick in the car. Then I noticed pink cervical mucous in my underwear. My cervical mucous is watery or egg white in consistency and there's plenty of it during sex. My cervix is high, soft and open. I am more likely to wear pink or red, shorter skirts, make up, perfume. Hungry for fruit! I can get tender in the lead up to ovulation, but is very easy and pleasurable during.
