From what I researched, the dollar store tests like the new choice brand which i use can detect 20 or 25 mui (not sure of units...haha) or preggo hromones. So they are very sensitive. No sign of AF today. Hoping she stays away for 9 mos starting tomorrow, wish me luck!!!!
Thanks sonia! No AF this morning so far!!! And I usually get it in the morning, but that's on BCP's, my spotting for my first AF of BCP's started very late at night. Since no bleeding this AM I decided to test & another BFN!!! This is starting to get to the point where I would be happy to see AF or a BFP now thank you very much! I am still keeping hopeful, as I may have counted my OV day wrong. Really hoping this is it for me. GL to everyone else testing.
This month I have not been tracking ovulation. I've been trying to keep an eye on my cm, but it's hard to tell if it's the good stuff or not because of all that semen! lol. So I just checked on pregnology.com and it said that I should be ovulating TODAY! I have an app in my phone that I use as well and that one says I'll ovulate on Saturday. All the information is the same, so I'm confused!
Anyway... my husband is very sick right now. Probably with the flu, so there will be no BDing tonight. We have bd'd Saturday, Monday and Wednesday, so I should be covered if I am ovulating today, right? I will be forcing the issue tomorrow whether he feels better or not.
And how do you guys recommend timing the bd-ing? We started with the every other day business on CD8...but how long should you keep that up for? I'll probably just do it til AF comes!!
Iím just popping on quickly at work to ask something, so havenít got time to look at all the other posts. Will read through properly tonight Ė just didnít want you to think I was posting all about myself and ignoring you all!!
Anyway, this is waaay TMI, but just had a massive glob of what seemed to be EWCM when I went to the loo (honestly, there was loads)!! Do you think this could mean that AF is only Ďlateí because I havenít actually ovulated yet? Maybe with it being my first cycle off bc things went a little slower then usual (Iím now CD35). Has anyone ever gotten any of this stuff way after ov, or can you only get it before? Iím all confused!
Could this be ovulation coming up now (I also have backache and a bit of an ache in my lower abdomen) and so I should have lots of BD over the next 3-5 days just in case?
Maybe itís just worth us presuming it is and having a go, and then give it till around 18th Nov to see whether AF turns up or not. If it hasnít & still getting BFN, go to the docs then and demand answers!(I would be on CD50!!).
Donít know if I can bear to wait another 2 weeks though, itís killing me not knowing whatís happening!!
I wish I could log on at work, my boss would have a fit and also phone signal at work is poor!
Preshfest - the sperm meets egg plan which everyone seems to talk about on here says bd every other day from cd10 (some do from cd8) until +opk, then do it every night for three nights miss a night and then next night. We are going to try it this month (as AF has just arrived) but DH said let's to one night then one morning then one night and so on for the whole month - he might just regret that!
MaznDave - I would treat as ovulation too, can't do any harm!
So . . . AF definitely got me today so the spotting yesterday was her little entrance! It is very different in terms of flow, consistency etc, sorry of tmi. AND she came early just to annoy me even more - 26 bloody days! So was wondering if ovulated day 16 and had a 10 day Luteal (?) phase, is that quite short in terms of giving a ferilised egg long enough to implant? I'm not too worries as only 2 cycle after bd but be curious to know what you think? Some people take stuff to extend Luteal phase - any ideas?
