With DD my cycle was 26 days and I O'd on CD 13. That's what I believed happen 2 cycles ago too (I started charting mid-cycle). This last cycle I REALLY suprised my O'ing on CD 10 and then my cycle was only 23 days long.
I started B6 and milk thistle in June to help deal with any extreme m/s (I had hyperemesis last time). That's the only thing I can come up with.

Anyone experience this? Can I O even early this cycle?

I've started taking mega doses of B's and Folic Acid. Had two previous early miscarriages. And I O'd 2 days earlier than I expected!! I usually O on cd 16 and this month I O'd on cd 14.. I think it shortened my cycle from 29 days to 27 days this month! Not sure if that helps but It did shorten my cycle!!

Thank you for sharing that. I wonder what will happen this cycle. I guess I'll know next week...I'm on CD 3 now.

Good luck to you mama!

Other things than Vitamin B6 can change when you O (stress, excitement, dietary changes, upping your soy intake). But it doesn't matter when you O (cd6 or cd22 as long as it happens you should be happy) what matters is that your luteal phase stayed the same, as it should... its a nice length and very stable.

Oh, I am happy . And I know you are right about LP. I am mostly interested b/c we are starting to TTC next cycle and the change puts me O'ing on tour with our band in Japan. So, I'm trying to plan how to DTD when living in tight quarters with our band, the tour manager, DD and our friend, the nanny .

A quick trip to the bathroom? lol... thats what DF and I had to do when sharing a cabin with his parents, sister in law, nephew, cousin and his wife (who is actually cousin to his sister in law), brother (not the one married to the sister-in-law) and my 2 kids.

. Sounds like a plan. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. So sneaky!
