ovulation cramps

i just had a small question, today is my day 17 and i am on clomid 3rd cycle 100mg, i am feeling cramps like pre AF not in ovaries but in abdominal/stomach area, does this mean that i am ovulating today.

In my experience through charting my temperature, I ovulate 2 days after my Mittelschmerz (the abdominal pain at mid cycle). I have read where this pain is not neccessarily ovulation but a sign of it to come very soon. Good luck!

so that means that i am ovulating very late b/c today is my 17th day and i havent seen any CM till now, i am very dry.
this month dr. has upped my dose from 50 to 100mg(4th clomid cycle

It might be the 17th day. One month I didn't ovulate until the 17th day of my cycle and this last month I ovulated on the 12th day. I have heard one of the side effects of Clomid is dry cm so you might try Rhobbitusin (sp) to thin it out. Good luck!
