Trying to conceive

As it says really, almost finished my first pot of folic acid.
Plus all the lovely new plants my parents got me as a moving in present are dying or have died.
Plus my silly friend/man at work (who knows I am trying - I know, stupid to tell him but at the time he was my really good friend) made a comment to me on friday along the lines of "aren't you pregnant yet - all this bonking - shouldn't you be by now, what's wrong with you?
Silly stuff to get to me I know.
Anyway, seeing as you ladies have all been so super-helpful when I post, I wondered if I could ask *amother* silly question?
roughly 10-12 days after my period I get what my friend calls *tmi sorry* stringey-egg-whites? So this is when I am ovulating, yes, which makes me think I don't need an OFK kit. Are those days the most fertile, or before or after? When I#ve googled this I've become a bit overwhelmed with information. Can anyone recommend a good website for this kind of information?

Keep taking the folic acid.
Don't worry about the plants - all mine die too.
Egg White Cervical Mucus (EWCM) is normally just before ovulation and poss the day of ovulation. Once you see it DTD. OPKs would confirm your LH surge around that time.
Not sure about any websites. I tend to use a whole variety of ones when I'm looking for information. I just google.

People can be really insensitive sometimes. Hard to do, but just ignore them. I have it all the time, even when people know i have had a MC, they naturally assume that its easy to get pregnant again, when infact for some people its anything but easy. I just say to them now 'its not that easy for some people' and they seem to shut up. Try not to let it get you down, hard i know.
I get EWCM too, i don't use OPKS to back it up though, we just DTD every other day and we are usually covered. I would say if you notice it being a regular thing every cycle on those days, i would personally just DTD every other day from day 8 - day 15, obviously if you haven't had any EWCM then just carry on with that pattern, but if you are getting it regularly on those CD's then i would personally say you will have done what you can, without having to do the OPKs.
