Check in: 6/10/13

I thought I might get one of these going. How are you ladies doing?


 


I am CD29 and according to my FF calendar I should start AF today. No sign yet though. 3rd cycle off BC and so far things have been regular so I'm taking that as a good sign. Last month AF was one day early. It's my last full cycle before we TTC and I'm a bit anxious. I'm the fittest I've been since before I met DH, I haven't kicked my coffee habit, but I have been good about my prenatals. 


I've decided to hold off on temping for now, but I do have a pack of OPK's. How do I know if I O without temping? I've been trying to sense that feeling people talk about around the time I should be O'ing but idk, sensing a feeling is so unclear!


According to FF my forcasted fertile days are CD11, 12 and 13 and my forcasted O is CD14. So I guess I start checking OKP on what? CD9 or 10? and BD when I get a smiley?

Hey ladies,


@ nicole, I would suggest OPK on CD 9, I am testing 2x a day noon and evening, so that I won't miss the LH surge, and yes do the BD as soon as you get a smiley and continue to do for at aleast 3-4 days if possible.


@athena, I have thought about delaying TTC, and have done so to start my MA, but I really don't want to delay it anymore,it's been 3 years already, and a lil one running around our apt will be so fulfilling. :) 


AF, TTC is driving me crazy!!! I have all these weirds thoughts going through my mind, am I fertile, can I have babies, do I have a problem, making me very anxious. I did things a lil bit backwards and jump on the TTC bandwagon with no opk, no taking of the bbt, only did it according to my FF calendar, that didn't work, so I will now resort to both opk and bbt.


I came off depo April 23rd, I had a period on May 8th for about 5 days, however I have been jump starting my period with a natural vegetable cmpound that's suppose to regulate your periods, I am currently on CD 34, no AF, however tons of cramping, bloating and EWCM and tender breast, so I am guessing she's around the corner. Tons of BFN. 


I am thinking should I just wait to start getting regular periods, before tempting and charting, just because this cycle has been so long I wouldn't even know when to tempt???


Lots of baby dust to us all!!

MK: temping isn't something you do on certain days. You do it every day of your cycle, so if you are going that route start temping on CD one and continue until you get a bfp.

I am currently on cd 22, 4 dpo. I usually have certain things happen after O(swollen/tender bbs mostly) but I am feeling nothing this cycle. My temp confirmed that I did but i'm not sure if the lack of symptoms is a good or bad thing. Guess I'll find out next week.

CD 20, Im not too sure if I o'ed this month. I didnt see EWCM (except on CD 6 and 7). I started using OPKs this month from CD 9,because I have a 28day cycle,but all read negative till CD 18,at which point I stoped checking.


Anyone else have this scenario?


Anyways, Fx for next week..

Oh!!! I used opk's this month, and just tested once a day, by 4pm each day. Could I have missed my surge that way? I see some people test 2 times a day. But I was told that LH level are more detectable between 10am and 8pm. What is the correct thing to do?

Awesome ladies thanks for the OPK advice!


@MK I had a few friends on depo and I know their cycles were all over the place after coming off. I know it's tough while TTC but try to remain patient. You've been off for a very short time, I'm sure it will regulate soon. FX!


FX @KWoodrn!!


@nenyibabs Sorry I'm still so new to OPKS and not sure I understand them fully yet.

Hi Ladies,


I got my BFP on CD 26 (13 DPO) and now I am 4 weeks and 1 day preggo :) I have a confirmation appt next monday, so hope and FX that this bean is a a healthy and sticky one!!!


@nenybabs: I'm not a great help regarding OPK`s because I only used them one month and never got a real positive on these. They were either white or only a faint second line. But I think the most Ladies take them twice a day. And I hear that you don't have to use your FMU because it could make o wrong outcome. HTH :)


@Kristina: I cross my fingers and toes that your 3rd round of clomid will bring it for you!!! You know all good things came in threes - so hope this month is it!!!


@Nicole: So glad that your cycele came back regular so soon. No longer wait till TTC!! Are you already excited to finally start next cycle :) ?


@MK: I think like Nicole said that it is a really short time since you came of from depo. I only was on BCP so I really don't know how long it will be in your body. I know denny`s were on depo and I seem to remember that it take her three month before she got her BFP. So maybe next cycle will be a lucky one for you. I cross my fingers for you that you will not wait too long for your BFP!!!


@athena: I can't see your entry anymore :(

@nenybabs, I would recommend testing 2x a day, if you can at 12 and 6 or 8pm... I think I am going to do, 10am and 6pm..

@Nicole - I would start your OPKs around CD10 if you aren't sure what day you O :) And depending on how many you have, I would do one at night and one in the morning.... you'll find that FMU is not the best for OPKs.... that's why I normally do one in the morning and another at night/afternoon


@Kristina - crossing my fingers that this is your cycle!! Stay positive!!! :)


@nenyibabs - I normally do 2X during the day, but that is just personal preference. You may have missed it, because some days I would get a :) in the morning, but not that afternoon. But, it's whatever you prefer. FX for you!


@GermanBride - SO happy for you dear!! FX for a sticky bean :)


 


AFM - I'm currently CD6 - AF ended yesterday. SO I just started taking pregnitude (thanks June1bride!!) and drinking my fertilitea from amazon yesterday. I'm trying really hard to relax, and I'm thinking about booking a massage next week ;) This weekend DH and I are going out of town to visit a friend so I'm hoping that will take my mind off of things as well :) Next week will be my O week, so I'm just trying to take it easy and wait until next week!! I feel like I'm always waiting for something... either to O or test lol :) FX for everyone this cycle!!!

Hey all!


@nicole: it depends on what kind of OPK's you have. If they came with instructions, it should have some kind of chart included that tells you what CD to start your OPKs based on your cycle length. I used to start my regular CB digis on CD 11, but now that I used the 'advanced' ones, I start around CD 9 for my 29 day cycle. Temping and bloodwork are the only sure ways to know you're ovulating, but OPKs have been pretty accurate from my experience. Although there was one month they were wrong because I was sick and my body delayed O. Good luck!!


@MKC: I think it's totally normal to have worries and doubts about TTC. Also...I think the CB digis are meant to be used once a day. They don't really come with enough to double up, and purchasing two packs would be super pricey. Normally they're supposed to be used in the afternoon, but my CB Advanced Digitals say to use FMU. Best of luck to you--I hope your body regulates itself quickly:)


@KWood: Good luck, lady! I've heard some women say that they were sure they weren't pregnant b/c of lack of symptoms and then bam! BFP. I hope that's the case for you! **baby dust**


@neny: What type of OPKs are you using? I had such trouble with the non-digis. They always looked negative to me. Maybe the digitals might be easier for you? Good luck, I hope you did end up O'ing!


@German: so stinkin' excited for you, lady!! A HUGE congrats on that BFP:D I hope you'll come back and tell us how your first appt went.


AFM, I'm 14 DPO and got a solid smiley on my OPK this morning, so Oing right on time! Yay! So it's business time tonight and tomorrow, then the dreaded 2WW. 


DH and I also had a talk last night about the stress of TTC. We decided that if this isn't our month, we'll be taking the summer off. Part of me feels like that's crazy and I'll be wasting time, but the other half of me thinks it would be lovely to de-stress and enjoy the summer. It's so short, and we have so much fun stuff planned, that I want to fully enjoy everything. So if it's a BFN this month for us, I'll be taking a break from the boards, temping, and OPKs until the end of August.
