Be encouraged about ovulating! You are young and healthy, and im sure will ovulate!!! Our bodies are so tricky sometimes and Sometimes our systems can take some days to readjust the cycle post contraception you know. Youre on top of it and i know you'll be just fine !
Good luck with residency! A few years ago, I worked as a trauma floor RN at a level 1 trauma hospital so I have had a LOT of residents work alongside me. It's grueling but amazing just to be emerged like that. What rotation are you on? Are you going into a specialty?

CD 11.... going out for Halloween. Last chance at a slutty Halloween for me hahahaha.... we are all dressing up as different Pokémon. Have I mentioned we are huge dorks?!

34 ttc #1


Hi everyone!
I've read everyone's posts and my journey sounds very similar :-) I'm 34, I work as an RN in the OR. I was previously married in my mid 20s but he was not my true match. I married my true match a month ago after five years and this month we decided to start really ttc. I have been tracking w fertility friend for almost a year just to get my cycle mapped out. This month I used clear blue opk. I got a positive on day 18. I was testing in am but read that first morning urine misses o a lot of the time I decided to start doing it twice a day. Yesterday morning it was neg but mid afternoon I tried again and got my positive. So now it's wait time until Nov 11 . I unfortunately keep reading up on infertility and have started to create doubt in my mind so happy I found this group!

Welcome!!! Congrats on your positive opk!! As much as I loved my iud, I really wish I wasn't figuring out my cycle as I'm TTC... it really makes it hard and makes me doubt everything! So that's awesome that you have a years worth of charting! That will help immensely! I completely understand the infertility concern.. I have so many friends who had a hard time conceiving and it really scares me. I have so much admiration for women who do this for years... in the month that I've been trying I am absolutely blown away by how obsessive I've become... my type A personality is partially to blame but this truly does consume you....

Anyway- I'm glad you joined our lil group! It's been such a great support.

How are you ladies doing today? I drank a little too much last night so today is a lazy day... definitely wouldn't mind getting pregnant and not drinking for another 9 months

I decided I'm gonna start twice a day opk's, last month I had two days of positives but I don't know if that was a fluke or if that's how it's always going to be. Until I know my cycle better, better be safe than sorry...

I'm very happy... I was slightly annoyed because my opk's seemed lighter than last month but today- they definitely darkened up!!! I should be getting a positive tomorrow! Definitely made my day!

Welcome Purple.
Good luck with you opk thejoie.
I think checking the opk twice a day is a good idea as ovulation happens in narrow window.
Afm, I'm not opking just temping this cycle. Still waiting for the cheap ovulation tests to come I the mail. According to my app my fertile days starts today so I should be ovulating soon. Baby dust to you all.

Illa when you check opks twice a day what times do you check? Right when you get up in the morning and just before going to bed at night? I'm excited for you that your fertile days are starting now! I'm CD17 and am thinking I may have ovulated Friday! We were planning to wait until November to start trying but I'm so excited I wonder if he would concede to starting to try earlier hehe. Wishing you all of the best!

Perky- I love the opk's! It's great to compare and find patterns.
BTW I LOVE pathology... pathophysiology was my favorite class...
I test twice a day in the morning and usually after work about 5pm when I'm approaching my ovulation day (about 2 days before) I also have a digital clear blue ovulation predictor which I love because it gives me a smiley face confirmation. I love the encouragement haha!!
