I'm on CD7 and waiting to Ov. I'm testing around the 13th of August.
I am in the same boat exactly! Do you typically ovulate early, late, on time? I normally ovulate early! So we will see. I am going to start using the internet cheapies on the 9th to start trying to detect my LH surge.
Hey everyone! Im on cd14 and got a positive opk this morning. We are supposed to be ntnp.....but my baby obsession has already turned into ttc and its our first month lol. But im 33 and its my first so im really feeling the pressure. We bd tonite, and hope to tomorrow as well...I wish we had last night but we had a big picnic and were just too beat. AF is due on the 11th, im going to try to wait until 13 to test, id rather be late and not waste money and be disappointed with bfn....then again I seem to have zero willpower with any of this baby stuff so we will see if I make it that far lol. Good luck to everyone and baby dust to all!!
I think BD every other day is better. I agree with pip squeek that from a biological point of view that the sperm needs time to build up.
I have tried BD everyday (during fertile week) and it was exhausting! it put a lot of stress on us both and found that DH struggled, and was really hard.... no wonder that his swimmers were too tired!!
Will defo keep you updated on any symptoms I don't remember get any last time till I got my pfp.
I was told to bd every other day by my doctor as the sperm need time to build back up.
Are you using ov tests?
I am going to use opk this month. I ordered some off the Internet. It comes with a chart to help you know when to start testing. So since I typically ovulate between day 11 and 13 the chart shows to start using the opk strips on day 9 which is tomorrow for me! It is also very clear about using mid day urine. Which can be hard sometimes because you never know where your going to be, but I guess I will figure it out!
Yeah it is definatly exhausting especially bd'ng everyday dont know how you kept up to that haha.
Have you found the opk's usefull? Iv never tried them or charted i find i start to stress too much about it.
Found them useful. The reason being is that after coming off the pill I wanted to know if I ovulated. It was comforting to see the smiley face, but I would not recommend using the clear blue digital everyday. It can get wicked expensive. I would order online then confirm or use digital on projected OV date. Hope that helps!!
