bought another pack of opk's at Target this afternoon and got a definite + (test line was clearly darker than the control line.)
the picture in your signature! Where do you live? We haven't had any snow yet (NC), though we have had one lovely (not) ice storm. Since you got a + opk on cd16, then bd'ing that day and the next sounds perfect, since you usually ovulate 12-36 hours after your LH surge (which is what the opk picks up).
Andrea, man isn't it always an important day that temping gets screwed up?! i hope your temp shoots back up tomorrow and AF stays away.
massaginmommy, hmmm tricky. i can think of 3 possibilities: 1) you ovulated before/right around you started doing the opk's (so if your LH surge was gone by cd9 then you might've o'ed cd 8 or 9, maybe even 10), 2) you haven't ovulated yet. if your cycles are normally 27 days, you could ovulate up until cd17 and still have a "normal" LP, 3) your opk's suck and you surged and ovulated one of the days you took the tests that didn't come out +. well, i guess there is a 4th possibility- that the cycle will be annovulatory, but that sucks so let's just forget about that one. so, how's that for helpful? not much, right?
in any case, if you only have one test and don't want to buy another one i'd wait until cd27.
peilover, yay for healthy baby!!! i'm so sorry about dh's grandma.
mum2be, woman keep your hopes up!! most women don't feel pregnant at 7dpo!! don't know about the hormone testing or the bromelain.
hi becky! darn chart of yours! what is up with these sneaky bodies not being clear?! seriously though, i hope your lower temp today was either a fluke or a late implantation dip and that tomorrow brings a high temp and clean underwear! oh, and of course a bfp!!
sierratahoe, i am so glad AF is hitting the road and that you are in better spirits! i wasn't around earlier to congratulate you on the new house! how very exciting! i loved your story. we had a similar thing happen a few weeks ago. it was actually when i was in the 2ww and my son, who is 4, said "i think it's time for us to have another baby." it was so darling and sweet and i was hoping it meant i was pregnant then, but alas it didn't. still it was darned cute and i'm glad he wants another sibling.
christy, hope the flutters are good news!
well both of my kids are asleep.
it's 6:00 here so i'm not sure what this means for my night. i took them out for a run in the double jogger at 4:30. when i got home a little after 5 they were both asleep. it is way too much to hope that they will both sleep through. oh yes, little one is now awake...
