Trying to conceive

Okay ladies. So I think I might be around 5/6 dpo but it's really difficult to tell as I don't temp and just go by cervical mucus. This is my first cycle after having D (7months) and our first cycle TTC. So the past few days I have had a lot of translucent runny, sticky EWCM. More than I remember being usual for myself. So we have been DTD lots over this time. The past few days I have also had very sore boobs and today I have had more frequent visits to the toilet.
So as of today my cervical mucus has changed from EWCM to a thicker, creamier, white, lotion texture. However, I have just been to the loo and when I wiped, the CM was the same but instead of being white it was a light brownish colour. What could this be? My heart is telling me, maybe it's implantation bleeding. But my head is saying not to get my hopes up. I took a test yesterday and it was negative, but I am aware it is far too early to test.
Do any of you have any experience with this brownish coloured CM?

My CM was creamy and lotion like and still is at 5+ 4. Can't comment on the brown though.

Not to get your hopes up even more but...
I had lotion like CM with my first pregnancy didn't notice it so much this time around.. The brown CM might be implantation bleeding! Fingers crossed for you!

Straight after ovulation, I never have any CM - not trying to get your hopes up but it does sound promising... Fingers crossed for you xx

If it is implantation remember your body will only start producing the HCG (hormone you are testing for) after that so even with the most sensitive tests it would take 2-3 days before you could possibly get a BFP.

Okay ladies so the creamy lotion consistency has changed to a clear runny mucus with brown streaks running through accompanied by some very light cramps. This is a good thing right? I'm really trying not to get my hopes up but this could be it!

Sounds promising to me!

Good luck xx

Well it turns out I was wrong ladies. AF has decided to show 6 days early. Trying to keep my head up. But I feel silly for getting mine and Hs hopes up over nothing. I guess it will take a while for my cycle to get back to normal after BF. :-(
