don't count yourself out because of this Barbie girl. I have had no fertile mucous for a long time now, including my pg cycle. It's not the be all and end all. Try Pre~seed if your worried about being dry. I've been using it the past 6 months, and again used it on my pg cycle.
One word of warning - don't plan your sex schedule around all of these 'signs' (or lack thereof) as that can cause you to miss the crucial day. Keep having regular sex (even past the day you suspected you ovulated) every three days, and once a day around ovulation day (i.e. day before, day of and day after). Twice a day around ovulation is too much imo, I'm a firm believer that the soldiers need 24 hours to fully replenish.
The ultrasound tech said something interesting yesterday. She says she does 'follicle tracking' as part of her job (presumably for IUI's etc) and she said she has seen many women who got a + ovulation test and then went on to actually ovulate 3/4 days later! She reckons that could be a reason why I'm measuring behind. She said women can put too much faith in the kits, i.e. getting a positive today means ovulation tomorrow, not always the case says she. All the test does is demonstrates that the hormone that will MAKE you ovulate is surging, it's doesn't confirm if or when you ovulate. interesting stuff.
