Aww, you know I actually find the beginning of the cycle more stressful than tww but maybe thats because i've not actually timed it completely right before so might be different this cycle.
Is it only me or do you find opks hard to read?
What do you reckon of yesterdays? I think + so bd last night, also bd'd Tue am if that makes any difference, I dunno
Hoping for bd tonight aswell but depends on DH and what kind of mood he's in!
How you feeling NJ, are you feeling positive this cycle?
Universa_2k, I don't know of they're positive opks :-/ oooonly because in my 1st loooong cycle of ttc I had loads like it, until I had my positives last cycle and boy did I know they were positive! Mega dark! BUT lots of people have said that they don't get dark lines and have ended up pregnant. I think it's just one of those things - say if you'd been doing opks for months and they were the darkest you ever got, then I would say he'll yeah they're positive, but I'm just saying don't be surprised if you get darker in the future like I did. God I'm waffling on now lol! I just wanted to say what mine were like, but also that other ppl have lines like yours and end up preggers ;-) just make sure you're bd'ing!!!
I'm CD12 today so I'm bd'ing every other day from now lol wish me luck!!
I started OPKing two days ago and only yesterday I got this really whimpy line, so I┤m not sure how a fat positive OPK looks like but if I had gotten your lines Universa, I┤d be bd like crazy lol
JZ!!! TWW that┤s awesome!! And yeah I also think the bigining of the cycle is far more stressful, It┤s like a mixture of disappointment+pms=total depression TWW is exiting so fingers crossed for you JZ!!
DH wants to go out of town to visit his parents this weekend, that┤s pretty much when i┤m expecting my big O day... I┤ll try to convince him to go next week.... wish me luck with that!
Aawww girls!!! It┤s great to have you around to share this process!!!
Hiya, keep doing the opks so then you know what "your" positive will look like - think that's what I meant above in a less waffly way lol!! I'm hoping to O soon fingers crossed!! I've put my foot down today and said we have to BD every other day now and my fiancÚ is like ohhhhh what a shame lol xx
Universa- I've only used digital opk bc I'd stress too much with reading the lines.. like how dark they are and what not so I spent a little more and get the ones that just have happy faces on my o days so the guess work is out.
Love- I'd Def use some power of persuasion to convince him to go next weekend instead and stay in and bd as much as possible! You can do it...
Kath- my husband feels the same way.. but I think the trick is that you have to not relate it to baby making every time and just make them feel like you want them just bc. I know for my dh when he thought I only wanted it bc I was o or trying to get pregnant he didn't enjoy it as much and felt more like it was a chore. Now I don't tell him when I o but just put the moves on him and tell him how much I need him lol. (not mentioning baby making), he has yet to realize its more so around certain times of the month and lives that in want him so much.
I'm on cd16 and trying to stay sane. If everything is right I o'd on cd 12... either way I'm going to try and bd every other day for a little longer just in case. lol
GL and baby dust to all!!!
Btw- I'm loving this thread and having all of you.
