cm decrease but havn't got a pos opk yet

Hi,

Am currently cd14 of what is usually a 30/31 day cycle for me. Ok, since cd8 dh and I have been bd every other day, I have had an abundance of cm for the past several days , it is at the ew stage right now, but today it has decreased significantly. I did an opk just after 12pm today and the surge line is somewhat lighter than the control line although visible. The surge line I might add was the same yesterday too, but today it appeared quicker when I tested, it should be getting darker shouldn't it?
If I am due to ovulate am wondering why my cm has decreased so much? Sorry if tmi, but I have felt physically wet in my underwear for the past several days where there was so much, but today nothing in there.
Sorry to be a pain but I am utterly and totally confused, feel my body is heading in one direction one day and another the next.

My cycles are exactly the same! I get the fertile quality cervical mucus, it diminishes, then I get a positive opk result. My thoughts are to take advantage of the fertile quality cm and then supplement your cm with pre-seed or eggwhite when the opk is positive. Your body usually gets pregnant from intercourse prior to ovulation. Also, an LH surge can happen in just a few hours so it is possible that you missed it on the opk if you are testing just once a day. And it is best to test in the afternoon because that is when the LH is metabolized into your urine. I hope this has been helpful. That's how I had my two little ones. It really works.

hi,

Big thanks for your speedy response!
I have literally (just now at 3.20pm) re tested.....there is a very very faint line there now, not as dark as the 12pm line though?
Does that mean I have ovulated?
Bd last night and the night before with dh as he is away overnight tonight.
I feel a little stupid asking so many questions as I already have 3 children (after previously losing 3) so I'm no stranger to getting pregnant.
But this is the 1st time I have been checking my cm and using ovulation tests. So I'm being thrown by conflicting things. I just got back from taking my dd to a birthday party and my underwear is a little damp so something is still happening. Am wondering if the lack of cm is due to the mirena coil I had removed at end of Jan this year or if it's just because I've ovulated? think this may be the first month I'm ovulating too since having coil out.
