Can I join in the fun here? We weren't able to REALLY fit the SMEP last month, but we are this month so far. Started a little earlier with the every other day (CD 5...we couldn't wait until CD 8 - thankfully I had a short period this month!).

We've opted against the 10 OPKs though. I keep track of all the biological signs and temping, so we're going with that. I have a few OPKs from last cycle that I'm using to verify (and got my first smiley yesterday). Praying this month we catch the egg...

Welcome Aboard ProfWife! And Happy New Year!

So with the smiley OPKs...do you need so many in a row? Or does the 1st smiley mean "get busy"? lol

I'm using just the cheap internet OPKs...so just waiting for the line to get darker.

The smiley usually means (for most people) that ovulation should happen within the next 48-72 hours. However, I've had several in a row and multiples separated by a few days. So, in reality, we are just using it to confirm what the EWCM and temperatures are telling me.

I'm planning on keeping going every night as long as I have EWCM until my temperature shifts. (He has no known issues, so we're operating off that idea.)

First of all, welcome!
Next, sounds like a good plan to me! I had my first pos OPK today, and mine say 24-36 hours, but I believe mine happens in 12 hours from the first pos, we'll see if my temp spikes tomorrow.

I hope you get your positive OPK soon! Fx'd!!! I had a good number of negatives before I even started to get a faint line (9-11 were completely white and CD12 and CD13 barely had any lines at all), it actually progressed rather quickly. I hope the same happens for you!

Hey guys do you mind if I join?? I have been thinking a out trying smep for a while now and always seem to have a trip or hubbie getting flu getting in the way of good pre -o bd'ing!! Well this month I am totally determined to get smep going - currently cd 1 so 7 days till action stations!!

Baby dust to you all sounds like you have good plans in place!! Talking about men and when they are in the mood.......hubbie and I bd'ed twice last night just because he felt like it.......why can that never happen during my fertile time!! I usually get a smiley opk the day that my hubbie has the worst day at work and its nearly impossible to get to bd!! Sod's law I guess!!

Nice to meet you all and baby dust to all. Xx

Welcome twinkletoe!
We always get plenty of BDing in, but just haven't caught eggy. Thought it was worth a shot. I'm unsure if we'll 100% succeed with the plan, since we went on CD14 and I got my pos OPK on CD15 so tonight is night 3 in a row. Not sure if I'll be able to convince him to go tomorrow too. Especially if work is tough. Tonight won't be a problem since it's his day off and we finally get to go on a date
Good luck to you and lots of to you as well!
