OK I'll start this time... I am still waiting for O. Cycle Day 17 with ewcm for the last few days. I am VERY crampy today. I'm hoping I will O in the next couple days! We acutally aren't TTC this month but like I've said before I'm trying to lengthen my LP so that maybe next month we can start trying. Of course if I O in the next day or so it is theoretical possible! Anyway, hope you all are having some luck in this department!!

I'm on CD 8, and witing to O as well. My husband's planning on going skiing next weekend with some collegues, so I hope I O before that...

Hi Ladies,

I've got a short short cycle, and probably should have O'd already but my OPK's have not come up positive so I'm confused. We're doing the BD often enough just in case....
Good Luck to all.
Chelly CD 11 (cycle 22-24 days)

Well, I'm here, after a 22 day cycle on CD1. On to month 6!

I have a question. I know the Luteal phase is not supposed to vary very much, but is it possible for it to do so anyway? Two months ago, I O'd around CD 13 and had a 15 day LP (with a couple of negative HPTs). Last month, I O'd around CD 12 and had a 10 day LP. This is all according to Fertility Friend. These are also the first two months charting. So, I guess I'm confused.

I'm just so frustrated and want to know what is wrong with me.

Bec - Just wanted to say that I've found that Fertility Friend is not very accurate with when you O. It doesn't seem to follow the rules set out in TCOYF

Hey Abylite,
We're catching each other all over the place!! :LOL

I'm using the OPK's for the first time this month - I've got a TON of them so I've not been shy (I bought 30 on line)
I actually thought I was O'ing earlier than it seems I am........ so in previous months I had given up and was on the 2WW already.

Hey Ladies
Cd 6 for me. Nothing exciting to report!
I'll start with the opk's around cd13 or so. I usually o late. This month though we have decided to bd every other day that dh is home (he's a pilot). And when I get the + opk, if he is scheduled to work, he's going to call in sick!
This part of the cycle is boring, but a nice break from the stress of the 2ww!
Chelly- keep testing because the line on the opk is supposed to be as dark as the control to be considered a positive. Usually what happens with me is the line keeps getting darker until the 2 lines are the same, then the test line gets lighter again.
Baby dust to all!

well those of you who have read my posts know that I was going to wait until next month to TTC but I am so frustrated with not O'ing yet I think I'll just seduce my husband any time I feel the urge and not really care. Maybe I'll actually get preg! I saw so many preg women today and I realized that I really wanted to be them. of course at that time I thought i wasn't going to O this month but lo and behold tonight I have ewcm again! Who knows when I will O but I'm not avoiding getting preg this month anymore. anyway, we'll see what happens. sorry for the vent.

cd 11, and not in a hurry because I apparently O anywhere from cd 16-19! Cycles have gotten longer since dd I guess.

Wolfmom, I say go for it!! Also my temp doesn't go up until a day after I've ovulated, maybe you are the same?

bec - my luteal phase has varied from 12-15 days. I wasn't worried because it's long enough to not be a problem. Where did you read it should stay the same?

I will use on line OPKs this cycle too. I also do the saliva testing, looking for ferning. And cm, bbt, and such. All together, they should give me a pretty good idea when I ovulate I hope!

Nice strong ovulation vibes to all!

I have a question.
I've been using OPK's for about three days now - and every second day before that since day 8 or so.

I started to get a second line two days ago, it was slightly darker yesterday but not as dark as the control line, now today its lighter again - whats going on? should I test again? did I O already and its fading out again?

I had cramping this morning, HORRIBLE cramps so I'm not sure if it was O or something I ate - I could hardly SIT down.

Very weird and very confusing.

HELP!!!
Chelly
I'm on Day 13 of a 22 - 24 day cycle...

Hi all, cd 1 (bummer ) here. I used OPK last month and thought we timed everything just right so I was really hopeful, but no. Well, I will do the OPK thing again this month and hope - I really hate the wait though.

Hey guys--this is OT, but not worth a whole new thread, so...I was at the dollar store last night (getting a little mending kit), and I saw they have pg tests there. For $1. Too good to be true?

Hello...

Chelly....I'm new to using OPKs too. I got a faint line yesterday CD12 and today it seemed darker to me. I'm wondering if when you tested there may not have been enough hormone to detect? I also checked again this afternoon while I was at work (I still am... and the line was lighter than this morning. I also couldn't HOLD IT IN any longer (pee) and tested anyway.

I'm CD 13 today and usually have a 30-31 day cycle...my dh has been a "good boy" so he says...we actually BD this morning...hung out with my pelvis up just in case. I don't want to "waste" anything!! Does anyone start BD 2-3 days before O?



Wolfmom...I've never had naseau during O. I do get little twinges usually on the L side.

Mamawannabe- have a great time on vaca! I hope you catch the eggie!

UmmNuh...I don't have any feedback on the dollar store HPTs..although I wonder. I don't have any patience to wait...so I usually waste $ and get the sensitive HPTs...Last month I spent a small fortune...

Let's make this a good month!!!! Abylite

This cycle I start on the clomid and the prog. suppositories. Hope that's not tmi.

Fertile vibes to all of you!

Thanks Abylite, I'm guessing that I must have O'd already, and perhaps with testing only in the evening, I might have missed it when it would have been a dark line...... well I hope so anyway..........

Chelly
Should I be on the 2WW already then? probably

Count me in too! CD8 and counting. Bought one of those OPK this month, so we'll see if the little souls are more attracted to this uterus when I pee on a stick! TTC is so surreal sometimes...
