I'm 6dpo today, and my temperature went back up (it had dropped yesterday and I was worried). Anyone else get totally confused by OPKs? I started taking them at CD6 this month just to be on the safe side, and they gradually darkened until CD17, and then started fading again. That makes sense since I ovulated on CD 16, but none of them were ever positive. Not even nearly positive. This is the third separate month I have tried OPKs, and I have never once gotten a positive result...even the month I conceived my twins!

Anyway, the line had lightened until it was nearly gone, but last night I took another one and it was darker again! Why would my LH be rising again if I already ovulated?

I have absolutely no idea about opk's...sorry. It wouldn't get darker again if you were pg?? At least you know it can work without getting a positive on opk's!! How do you know you o'd on cd16?
Just an excuse for loads of dtd!

Hello ladies! I will join in.

I am 29 years old with 2 daughters of the ages 10 and 6. I have been married to dh for 11 years. This is our 3rd month TTC. I went to my gyn appointment today to let my Dr. know that I stopped taking bcp in July. He said that hoepfully I will get pregnant within a year. He was haapy to hear that I was TTC. I am 7dpo and I forgot to take my temps since I was rushing this morning for my appt. AF supposed to arrive between the 24th-29th. Hopefully I will be working soon as an preschool aid within 2 weeks. I am just waiting on HR to call me so I can take the background checks and drug testing. This is not what I want to do since I want to be in the healthcare field. Well I guess I have to start somewhere since I do not have any experience. FX for all of us to receive our BFP's soon.

Hi Princesskell! Wow! 5 kids! I'm happy with 3. I'm hoping for a boy, but it doesn't really matter. You have 10 times more chance of having multiples on clomid.
Wishing everyone lots of luck!!
If you didn't have a boy would you go for number 4? Are you doing any special gender things?
If we don't have a boy, it won't matter. I'll be happy with a girl too. This would be our last baby. We haven't tried anything special for a boy. I know they say you should BD on O day or as close as possible since male sperm only stick around for a short while. Since I have such irregular periods, we're just hoping for BFP soon!!

I'm 7dpo now and really getting nervous. I'm feeling a bit nauseous, but it must be some kind of stomach bug because its way too early to be feeling symptoms...right? Anyways, I hope everyone else's cycles are going well!

OPKs would probably get darker if I were pregnant, but I don't think this soon after O. I did another OPK today and it's even darker! I also have ewcm. I wonder if I didn't O yet, and I'm gearing up to O now? Fertility friend tells me that CD16 was O day according to my temps, but I don't know anymore!

Hi momwife welcome! Good luck with your ttc journey. I admire anyone who can find time to temp!
Any symptoms yet?
I hope you've heard from hr, sounds like a good starting point for your real career.
Hope the witch stays away xx

I personally think most of the gender sways are very unrealistic, but then I have heard it work...I suppose it's just 50/50. Sending lots of blue vibes your way.
Any more symptoms?

Thanks Princesskell! I don't think there's any truth to those gender tricks either. We BD'd the way you're supposed to have a boy with our first child and we had a girl. Your chances are always going to be 50/50 no matter what.
On another note, I am sooo confused! I seriously don't know whats going on with my body. I was feeling cramps and crampy twinges since 4 or 5dpo. I've also had headaches on and off since then and my bbs were a little sore yesterday. Today, I woke up with ewcm???!! And my CP is super high. I have used an OPK, but is it possible I didn't O when I thought I did?? I had a positive OPK and all the symptoms I usually have with O (ewcm and O cramps). I think my body's playing tricks on me now.
I feel like AF is coming, but I'm only 9dpo. I'm still feeling little crampy twinges and my bbs are a little sore still. I took a test this morning and of course BFN since its still way too early. I don't know what to do or think!

I'm on CD24 today, and I had two positive OPKs yesterday, and ewcm for the third day in a row today. I think maybe I'm ovulating today? OPK was negative again by this afternoon.

I'm SO tired today...I had to get a CT scan this morning, and ever since then I've felt really run down. Maybe it has something to do with the IV contrast material.

Sounds like I did when I was pg do you remember early symptoms last time? I hope it is. I think I've heard pg symptoms can be similar to o symptoms and af symptoms! Crazy bodies!!
How are you sleeping? I had really vivid dream and night sweats last time I was pg.

I'm supposedly on 6dpo, cd21. We've dtd'd another few times this week since supposed o.
I don't think I will be getting symptoms yet but having tiny cramps every now and then. I'm surprised I haven't made my boobs sore with all the prodding I've been doing to check if they are sore!!
I keep reminding myself I didn't realise I was pg till like 22dpo last time
We go away a week on Saturday for a week, the day af is due to arrive, I have bought a pg test but don't know when to do it??
Happy Friday everyone...how are you all doing?
