Wow brunette 11 days late to get a bfp...that must have kept you guessing. I know of a lady who took 2 weeks to get her bfp.

I won't look at your chart as I've never charted so wouldn't have a clue.

Just been sending myself crazy by taking opks the last few days and then analysing then to see if they are going darker, which they aren't so now convinced myself I can't be pregnant even though I'm only dpo 8. Think I might get my hubby to hide my opks and pregnancy tests until at least Monday. Xx

Just got started!


Can I join?! My daughter is almost 20 months and my husband and I just started ttc this month..she was a surprise so I'm confused on this whole ovulating thing and could use some help. I took my mirena out in January to give my body time to get "normal", we've been using condoms since. If my periods are 5-6 weeks apart and 6-7 days long how do I calculate when my fertile time would be?

Hi and welcome

You could try google-ing ovulation calculators online and that will give you an idea. You would have to insert your cycle length, your lmp and it will give you the most likely days that you will be fertile. Also, you could check your cm and cp. Some ladies find this very gross, I know I did, but after ttc for a while, I guess we would try anything and everything.

Good luck and sending you lotsa baby dust

Hi Harleighsmom - my son wasn't planned and this is my first cycle trying so it's all been a bit confusing but I think I've got my head round it. You would likely ovulate 14 days before your period so let's say you had a 35 day cycle (5 weeks) then you would ovulate around day 21. Do you check your cM? I really recommend you do, I checked my cm daily and I saw real changes in it as I approached ovulation, and on the day I had lots of ewcm I got a positive opk. It's a good idea to test twice a day when you approach ovulation as you can miss the surge otherwise. I can't advise on temping, I did buy a basal body thermometer but as my body seems to clearly tell me when I'm ovulating I'm going to stick with cM charting and opks.

Good luck, there is alot to think about and it can be overwhelming but I found Google and reading lots meant I was very prepared and now I know my stuff. I'm one of these people that likes to be fully prepared. Feeling very impatient, I know it's only my first month but because I didn't have to try to conceive my boy I feel like it should happen NOW! Lol

Thanks ladies! I've tried a few ovulation calculators but I guess I just have a hard time trusting them since I'm not the average 28day cycle kinda gal. I don't check cm...I've just been keeping up with my periods since they were not regular in the past. I have done a ton of reading but it is so overwhelming it is hard to wrap your head around! According to the ovulation tracker I should ovulate tomorrow!

Hareighsmom - I have irregular periods too, they range from 35 days to 60 odd days...that's why I think cm charting is important because you really can't be sure when ovulation will occur.

Brunette - the website is countdowntopregnancy.com but if you click on my ticker it will take you to the website, just create an account and then go to to ticker bit.

Ok think I've got line eye, not only is my last opk significantly darker (thought it wasn't but it looks almost positive) and I swear I can see the faintest line on my hpt. Worried I'm making something of nothing...time will tell I guess.

I've got an account Hun. Just wasn't sure which ticker it was

Oooo fingers crossed!

I have a really crampy uterus today and lower back ache! Is that a sign of ovulation or is the dreaded AF coming early? I have water CM so I'm guessing ovulation!

Watery cm sounds like ovulation, mine was very watery prior to getting ewcm so keep an eye on it. Fingers crossed its ovulation.

I shall try not to get my hopes up, I want to say I'll wait til Sunday to test again but not sure I'll make it. Will try not to read too much into the opks, might be having a weird lh surge and It's making me see a faint line on the hpt. Mind playing tricks and all that.

I think I clicked on countdown in the ticker drop down. X
