Well, I think the ideal is as dark as or darker than the control line, right? So ideally you test twice a day, once at noon and once at 10pm. But I have found if my urine isn't concentrated that they always come up negative, no matter what. I think as long as you're spelunking every day, you could probably get away with one per day sometime in midafternoon?

Snow~Pea, thanks! I'm anxious to see what tomorrow will bring in terms of temps. I am thinking maybe I O'd yesterday and we didn't get any Special Spelunk Time in, so like... maybe I missed it AGAIN. But I used the Instead cups, plus everything else this time, plus I am 99% sure I've ovulated already which means it's definitely much earlier in the cycle than usual. And all of those are good things regardless of what happens, right?

binkin, I think your timing is great whether you o'd on mon or yesterday! The day before is just as good if not better than the day of. And yes, it is awsome that your cycle is getting shorter!

We're using no-voc in the house we're building. I don't think it smells much at all!

congrats songbird!

Hey, FF gave me crosshairs! I ovulated monday, so my test day is 11/09 because I only have a 12 day lp. Wish me luck! How's everyone else doing?

Well, I'm officially still in the club

I felt very postive this month. DH works out of town and he was home during all the right time this month and it still didn't work.

I feel horrible, broken and that my body is failing me...

hang in there. Wallow for a few days if you must, but keep looking forward. It's not your fault, it's just the luck of the draw.

I don't know. I had EWCM before my period came last cycle though. Sorry not what you want to hear...

sweetieB, I totally missed that question hiding at the bottom of your post! I don't have an answer for you though. I thought I read here that cm can be a sign of pregnancy, but I thought it was creamy. IDK, hopefully one of these wise mama's has some better info to give you hope.
I will say that if I started to get ewcm at 6dpo, I would probably jump dh just in case I was wrong on my orig o date, or it might be a second ovulation. HTH.

The weird moods can definitely be a result of the Clomid. I was on it two rounds and unfortunately had strange vision changes that haven't gone away. Other common side effects are headaches, nausea, hot flashes... really anything hormonal is probably the Clomid!

I'm on it right now. It definitely gives me hot flashes and mood swings. I've been on both ends of the spectrum....uncontrollable crying and evil, nasty she-devil. Luckily my husband is a very understanding and patient man. ha ha
