My preseed arrived today If I ever get to have another cycle (), I am ready to also start temping again and trying preseed. I don't really have any other suggestions unfortunately....

Sorry for you too Kittykat!
I'm not sure but have read that most women test in the afternoon, or even twice/day - once am and once pm, so they won't miss the surge. I only used one OPK in this cycle, tested in the afternoon and got a clear positive (and then tested again a few days later just to see how a negative one would look like, lol)
Thank you Ill just keep testing and hopefully will get a positive reading xx

I have somehow managed not to test yet... I still have 5 more days until AF is due. So hopefully I can hold out a little longer! Ahh I hate this TWW!!! Love the idea of this group especially because I didn't know you aren't able to see/participate in the same forums once status changes. :-) id love to keep all this support!

Well, 'ello, 'ello, 'ello, fancy seeing you guys here!

How are we all doing? I'm not having an awesome month to be honest. About a million bfn's and to top it off, af is late now, so I can't even crack on with the next cycle. This is about the first time I've been late in over 18 months, but if I was pg, it'd show positive by now

We only had 2 bfp's off the old thread, so here's to hopefully getting lots on this one x

I always wince when ladies say they just started prenatals when they got their BFP. It's so important to have that folic acid in the system for a while beforehand.
I'm glad you tell ladies that!

Instead of about it (which I may still do) I'm going to plan for the next cycle. I'm going to get on FF to start charting, buy a BT, some OPK strips and Preseed. I will also have DH start taking vitamins.

Any suggestions ladies? Any suppliments I should be looking at getting?
I think the charting will help you a lot, and show you a lot about your cycle. And so will both you and him taking prenatals/vitamins, good move there.

My spouse is on multis, fish oil, calcium, vit D, and B50 complex. I'm taking chromium, multi, fish oil, vit D, B50, vitex and, depending on symptoms, acidophilus and cranberry.
The B50 is to stop my pre-AF spotting, and the chromium is to help with insulin levels.
I really wouldn't recommend you use vitex if you have regular cycles, it will mess you up; and depending on why you spot pre-AF, B50 might not be a good idea for you.

Hi Ladies- So a little on what I've learn the past 2 months... with opk you want to test in the afternoon/evening since your LH levels rise awhile after waking. It's tough though b/c you shouldn't take in a lot of fluid before testing yet you want to stay hydrated so that your cm stayed fluid. I learned that last month when I found I wasn't peeing like I should have and was dehydrating myself. I did the cough syrup thing last month too but MAKE SURE it only has the Guaifenesin as the main ingredient, antihistamines will dry you out and you don't want that for EWCM. Cervix position is another key thing to watch for when trying to determine ovulation but that's a personal choice. Took me awhile to figure that one out

For temping make sure it's specifically a basal body thermometer and you need to take it upon first waking up within about 30 mins each day. I totally recommend the Nexcare one b/c it has a light (Amazon). Since you doing it first thing in the morning, it'll most likely be dark. Most of them have a memory recall so you can always look at it later if you don't have one. Don't get up, move around or anything. Once you wake pop it in your mouth and wait. I also keep it under my pillow since our bedroom is cool and it can affect your temp if the thermometer is cold to start off with. Every woman's temp is different. You'll develop you're own pattern so don't worry about what everyone else is.

I think we all worry and wonder way too much and it causes undo stress. I've read that stress can totally delay AF if you have a lot going on. I also read "What to Expect Before Your Expecting" and it really, really helped me out a ton on understanding my body and what's going on. It's been a long time since I was in 5th grade

Also, I'm on Metformin for my PCOS and I also take a prenatal, D3 (calcium), Fish Oil w/DHA. I check w/my physician and she's ok'd all 3 supplements.

Thanks Angel for starting this thread and good luck to all the lovey ladies ttc!!

Sorry, I wish I could help. I am not an expert with this since I have only been TTC for a few months. Every woman is different though. I think stress is a huge factor for BFNs. Try not to stress!

Thanks for the invite, unfortunatly my AF has come and gone, starting again now, first time using ovulation sticks, any tips on when the best time of day to test?

xxxx
Most kits say the afternoon. I used mine at night because I have such a weird work schedule. FMU is usually not recommended.
