Doesn't hurt to start opks a bit early, I ovulated cd11 last month so I need to keep an eye on mine. This cycle is dragging really badly. Need something to keep my mind off it!

Welcome, Jennifer!

Tui, I feel your pain (not sure if that is the best way to put it) on the BD marathon right now. I think ovulation should happen today based on OPKs even though my monitor didn't show peak this morning (I think due to a nighttime bathroom visit).

Nikki, did yours show up peak yet?

Hi girls,
I'm 35 and ttc #1 with opks for 4 cycles now. I really started to try in January. Recently, because I guess 35 is considered old, I've had some testing and now see a specialist. I would have waited a few more years but my dr scared me into getting going RIGHT NOW. Ughhh, so stressful.
I had a progesterone test done on day 21 last month and had a good level of 23.65 and today having another day 3 with FSH and Estrogen. I should have that back today although I had one last month but the dr's like to order duplicative testing...
I did find out today through an ultrasound that my ovarian reserve is low, only 4 eggs this cycle. It's scary to me. This might not be a big deal, maybe they'll just give me clomid to kick those eggs into gear, but there seem to be so many more tests before they'll prescribe. An x-Ray on day 10, more blood work around day 12, post-coital around day 12, blood work any day of cycle but at dif lab. How can a woman work and go to all these appointments (none of which are close)?! Sorry to go on... Can anyone relate?
Btw, I have a shorter, 25 day cycle too. Currently on day 3, usually O on day 12 with a 13 day luteal phase.
Good luck to all of you and while I hope we can all offer each other support, I really hope your stay here is short!
Best of luck.

Hi minime, welcome to our nice friendly bunch.

Sounds like you are in the middle of a testing whirlwind! Sorry but I can't help you with all that. We are au natural and blissfully ignorant right now. If nothing happens in a couple more months then we will see what the doc suggests next. I'm feeling the stress already, so I sympathise with you.

Well I got two identical dark lines on my opk this morning. Thank goodness. A couple more days of dtd and we can relax (well as much as the tww will let us)!

Booger, looks like we are doing the wait together.

I got my positive on an internet cheapie and a egg symbol on my CBFM today. Seems like everyone is getting a positive on the same day

Welcome wantaminime and Jennifer - I will be 35 in 8 days and I am scared as well but have hope that everything will be okay. Good luck

Booger - I got my peak today. Lately I have to get up at night to pee and usually it doesnt annoy me but just because I am testing for ovulation, its getting on my nerves. I am trying to limit drinking water before bedtime but doesnt seem to be helping. I took antibiotics for a UTI a week ago so maybe thats what is causing it.

How many days of high have you had.I think you will get your peak tomorrow. Good Luck

Yay cycle buddies, makes the tww go quicker. Here's hoping for a super lucky BFP thread.

Welcome minime! I hope all of your testing leads you to some answers and helps you get to being where you want to be. It is so hard to be patient. At least you have a normal luteal phase even with your shorter cycles.

Nikki, the number of high days I get seems to vary each month. Which is annoying. This month I am at 5 so far. Hoping that is it!

It will be nice to have a group to TWW with this cycle. I haven't told anyone I work with or any close friends that we are TTC so it has been hard to wait alone!

Thanks for the warm welcome ladies!
I'm pretty new to all this, but a friend recommended a few apps to me to help monitor my cycle. I like that it keeps all my "recordings" in one place. I had two dark lines on my OPK on 4/12, we bd 4/6, 4/8, 4/9, and 4/12. AF is pretty darn regular and is expected on 4/24. We'll see. Crossing fingers she doesn't show up.

Hi wanta !
It's a lot of tests ! I'm the same as Tui, I try the natural way, with some vitamins. I guess after 6 months trying I'll go to the doctor and talk. I'm 35, but they say the average is 1 year trying..
I would stress out too if I had to go through all the tests and appointments.
Girls you're ahead of me, I'm CD10, should O around CD15.. But I'll be around during everybody's TWW !
