I went to the dr for my annual today & she told me to do every other day around ovulation...she didn't seem too keen on the every day plan. I am a little nerve racked now because I have not had my +opk yet & I am on cd16. I usually have no issue getting a +. I am starting a log in a day planner but didn't do it last month. Bu I think it was around cd16 last month too. Just thinking too much. We are on cycle 2 after taking a long break of ttc. We tried for a while before our break. So this is a new start for us. trying to get in a positive mode.

@MrsWKJ - yeah, the last two cycles I didn't get a "true" positive (I'd get close) with OPK's, but my temps had the rise that seemed to make it look like I O'd. So, maybe? haha

@beaglemom - for 30 days, fertilityfriend lets you log any info in addition to your temps/cycle like different pains, meds taken, stress, etc for free (after 30 days you have to pay for all the specific info, but notes and charting temps are still free) - which is handy b/c you always have access to it on your phone or computer! (I've tried hand-writing logs, but seem to do a good job forgetting about them!) good luck!

CD8 today - we started BD'ing last night. Also started OPK testing on Sunday. I'm taking all my good vitamins & fertile CM, drinking grapefruit juice and pomegranate juices, eating lots of fruits and veggies, and TONS of water. Feeling very positive and excited about this cycle!

By the way how do you hold it for 2-4 hours for OPK testing when you have to drink 8 glasses of water per Fertile CM instructions? Seems like an impossibility!

Finally got a spike on the clear blue monitor, not a peak. But me and husband seem to be in a funk. Don't know if we can get the deed done. I am just in a down mood.

I have been in that situation. You just need to talk to him and talk it out all the way until the end, until you feel better...that always makes me feel more romantic rather than "horny"...when I have long talks with my husband about my feelings.

We are going to lunch today. He feels bad. I can always tell. But sometimes my bathroom feels like a chemistry lab and I do everything. He just has to show up. But he just gets anxious over nothing. Sometimes I feel like he isn't totally opening up. So how can I help if he won't be totally honest?

I know its so hard to hold pee. Im using CB digital OPKs so they say FMU is ok and it works. So thankGod no pee holding this time. I got UTI twice in two months due to these opks i wasnt drinking enough water and holding my pee.

I think you should talk to him about how you feel and start asking him questions as well. Like i feel like this about it whats your opinion. This way he'll start adding his own input seeing you are giving away your thoughts as well.
The thing is all the times i told my husband that im checking my OPKs and this is my fertile time things never went ok. I didnt feel the chemistry. I think guys love the spontaneous element about sex. So now i try to keep everything sealed. Dont keep OPKs in the bathroom , didnt tell him im following SMEP nor when will be my fertile time. He knows we are trying but hes thinking its the relaxed approach and its so much better this month
Girls have to do all the stuff to make sure they have sex at the right time. We need to admit the fact that there might be one in a million guys who would be as participated in the process as us ladies. So dont worry about that. Its the same everywhere.
