I kind want to have a few things up my sleeve if it doesn't happen easily after a few months?? We plan on keeping the romance alive Otherwise really would be just going at it like
This is our 4th cycle ttc #1, going to use OPK's (which I used last month as well, but don't think I did it very well) and temping for the first time. I'm so confused with the OPK's though, some say use fmu while other don't. It's definately easier for me to use fmu so I am consistant. What are peoples opinons, is this ok?

They say your LH level peaks in the afternoon which is why most tests suggest not to use fmu, since it may be to early in the day to detect it. However I have heard that some do, like the Target brand OPK's apparently do say to use fmu, maybe try that brand to get accurate results if it is easiest for you to test in the morning. I am new to OPK's this month too and have been asking a lot of questions on here about them. Also when you get close to your O, they suggest using one every 12 hours so you don't miss your window.

FF Question


This is my first month temping and using FF... before I had any temps entered it set my O date for the 21st, which is what my other tracker was predicting too. But then on CD 8 it updated it to the 19th... still too early for the crosshairs... why would it have changed it? Is it basing it off of some trend in my temps that I don't see?

Either way we are getting close to my O so we have started BD every other day and once (if) I get a positive OPK I think we will BD 3 days in a row then back to every other just in case it comes late. Does that sound reasonable? I've heard it's best to do every other day for best and then once getting a positive OPK to 3 days in a row to try and catch that egg. Since OPK's give you a couple day window.

I'm thinking I could set my alarm for 3am take my temp, then poas (since I always have to go around that time and can't hold it till I get up for work) and go back to bed and check the results at 5:30 when I get up of work.

I would just hate to have to sit in the bathroom for up to 10 mins to get my test results... it will make falling back to sleep harder the longer I stay up. Would the results change color after an hour and a half and not be accurate?

That way when I get home at 3pm from work it will have been 12 hours cuz I think I like the idea of using an OPK every 12 to make sure I don't miss my window.
I think the window for ovulation after an LH surge is 4 hours for it to show in your urine and 12-24 before ovulation. So the OPK positive (if my early morning math is right) would be 8-20 hours pre-ovulation. Someone correct me, if you've seen different ranges.

The O date is estimated, since you didn't have previous cycle dates. Mine used to be estimated at day 14, because of my 28 day cycle and now that I have a previous ovulatory cycle on CD 20, it's estimating CD 20 for this one. It will also "reschedule" your anticipated period date, after ovulation, based on average LP length, until it knows what yours is.

I think I finally have my new routine figured out!! Thanks for the help!

My husband has it so easy! I know I don't HAVE to do all this stuff...but if it gets me my BFP faster it will be worth it!
I wait out the 5 minutes, then add it to my collection for this cycle, as I still don't know if I'll ever see a real positive. You are very welcome, I'm still only a few cycles in to this, but also know what a big difference the information gained each cycle has made!

And yes, the guys appear to have it easy. I was joking with an offline friend of mine, also ttc, that they seem to have it made, because we do tons of work and cannot (in good conscience) refuse them. At the same time, they get TIRED. Last cycle, no complaining from my dear husband, but he did express relief when he got to take a few days off!
