ok ok ... I'm going to try not to be shy about fooling around in the bathroom. I think it's the "talkers" I hope don't come in when I'm in there.

I actually just got my tests from that site and got 10% off. Fast delivery.

Thank you for your help! I bought the 50 pack of OPK's and used the coupon code! And I don't have any problem using the OPK's at work. There is only one toilet in our restroom, and its all women who work there. Although I will have to devise a case to put the unused ones and the used ones in. =P

Well, now that you put it that way I'm not sure. Maybe you should start a thread to get more input from opk users. I only remembered reading that the women on the Infertility One-thread usually went then next day or so, but now I can't remember if it was after the first positive or last. Sorry.

Name:Rothmom(Mindi)
Date:8/24
Chart: nope
Where are you in your cycle: CD25
Symptoms if they apply:my boobs hurt, just kind of an achy feeling, like when I was nursing and they were felling full.
Testing: AF isnt due until Thursday so I want to wait until atlest then, my last cycle was 35 days though instead of 28 so I might try to wait until a week from Thursday because that will be cd35
Thoughts: I really want to be pregnant this time, but I dont know if it will work out for me. We DTD lots of times when I am pretty sure I was ovulating, but DH pulled out every time. He wants to wait a few more months before we REALLY start trying, but I'm hoping it'll happen anyway. I guess we'll see, okay I dont know why i tested, but i got a BFN. Dont know what I was expecting, I'm only about 6-10 DPO. It could still happen, but I douobt it.

Where are you in your cycle: CD19
Symptoms if they apply: sore boobs
Testing: probably not
Thoughts: I think I might have ovulated! I haven't been charting very well so I don't have enough temps to say for sure, but it looks like my temps are up. Plus my boobs hurt, which is always a 2ww symptom for me. I'll try to temp the rest of this week to see if it stays up.

Might as well try out the maca now and see how your system responds to it before your df gets back. Then you'll know if you should keep taking it when you start ttc again.
