I got a positive OPK on cd 14 and cd 15. We BD once a day in the evening on CD 9, 11, 15 and 16. I had ov pain on CD 16. I started taking Folic acid as we started trying in November, I have since swapped to a pregnancy multi vitamin.

Hi Hun

I had been temping for a while so I got to know my cycle pretty well, mainly using temps and CM as a guide to OV.

I had also started to take Evening Primrose Oil mainly to help with PMS but then I also read it helps with CM so I took that from CD 1 up until OV.

I started using OPK's CD9, probably a little too early - I used IC's which were rubbish and never gave me a decent positive, and I also used the Clear Blue digital ones which give you a smiley face. I think my surge was quite small as I got the smiley face on the day I OV'd according to FF.


In terms of BD-ing, we BD everyday from CD12 up to the day after OV (CD 15). That was very difficult, we were exhausted and both said we couldn't keep that up every month!

Before TTC I also read Taking Charge of Your Fertility which recommended the BD every night tactic if your OH has a normal sperm count. I think this worked for us

Hope that helps

Sanatogen mother to be. They are huge but they are what I took with DS and they are on offer in Asda 3 bottles of 30 tablets for 10. Basically buy 2 get 1 free as they are nearly 5 each.

We dtd the day before ovulation and two days before that (as well as a few times before that, but I think those are the two that count!), I didn't get ewcm until a day and a half before ovulation. I used CB digital OPKs and had my surge the day before ovulation, confirmed by temps and ff. I took Sanatogen Mother-to-be, and am still taking it now. Pregnacare made me really nauseous last pregnancy.

A close friend had a miscarriage this week, I feel terrible for her, she had some bleeding at about 6/7 weeks and had been for two scans, which showed hb but it was measuring two weeks smaller, but the day before her next scan at 10 weeks she miscarried. I haven't told her that I'm pregnant yet, so I'm going to feel absolutely horrible when I do tell her. Its absolutely terrified me too, I had nightmares that I miscarried last night, roll on the early scan, I think I'm going to book it for when I'm 7+3 or further, that was the date I had one with DD.
