What times of the day are you testing? I've been testing once a day since AF but I will start testing 2xs a day soon. I never got a true positive OPK last month so I don't want to miss it again. I want to see a true positive this month! Oh and that is interesting about the Preseed being inserted w/an applicator! Good to know - I never heard that part mentioned before!
Yes, it really makes perfect sense now I've received the preseed! I thought it was just a lube that you use externally. But it's an internal lube specially designed for ttc to help make a good environment for sperm. I thought it sounded good especially as I haven't noticed ewcm that often.

I'm definitely going to use it while ttc now ive researched it and seen the success rate.

As for opk testing, I always do it twice a day too. I'm so glad I did it earlier this cycle, I don't know what made me but I thought why not?! At 5pmcit was positive. Then the following day it was negative.

It's so important to start testing early and until late if you don't get a positive. I would definitely recommend Clearblue ones with a clear smiley face. I tried the Internet cheapies for months and was tired of trying to decipher them.

Also with the IC you have to pee in a pot, leave it to get to room temp. A lot of fuss for people who are busy/work. The CB ones are like hpts, you just poas and wait 3 mins.

What cycle day are you? I would suggest testing at 10am and again at 5-6pm that way you won't miss the surge. It's a good idea to be bding before anyway

Xxx

I am on CD9. I am going to go buy the Clear Blue today after lunch! I did the twice a day before with the First Response. I used to do one POAS in the A.M. and one in closer to dinnertime or right before BDing.

I will have to see if I can go buy Preseed somewhere in a store near me ASAP. Otherwise I'll wait until after this cycle and order it online.

Looks like I should pick up several boxes of OPKs! Not cheap, but I do admit I always want to POAS nowadays!

The O.C! Awesome, how is the weather? It's currently snowing here and bloody freezing!

Glad you got your preseed! Remember just apply 15mins before sex.

I'm really happy to see ewcm, does that mean I was ovulating yesterday?

Oh I really hope you're right!! We've been bding all the way up to ov day, which is so important. I had great ewcm too, but if I hadn't checked after wiping (sorry) I would never have known!

Keep an eye on your cm and take two opks a day, again, I would have missed my positive if I hadn't.

I've had ov pains all day today (I think) in the lower abdomen, in the middle. Never had this kind of pain before, but maybe I'm noticing it because I'm watching out for it?

That's really awesome about the EWCM Ocean Pearl! Sounds like you guys are doing everything as best you can to get an BFP this month! And definitely sounds like you were OV. Yes, the OC has been HOT this week - upper/mid 80s Farenheit, except for Monday when it was cold and raining.

j1405 - I am very aware of my OV symptoms too since I got off BC. OV and PMS symptoms are all heightened since I got off BC. Are you testing everyday once or twice a day now? I plan to start OPK twice a day starting tomorrow. The EPO is making CM more slippery now I think! I'm happy with the results so far.

j1405 - where are you from?

Yes its weird, after bc i also became more aware of my o time since before i was ttc. I always had pressure and slightly painful o and my boobs started to get sensitive around that time. Maybe the surge in LH does that?

From tomorrow i'm testing twice a day.. I'm a little my o date migt move.. I've been very stressed this last week but i've just noticed that my cm is clear and stretchy so thats good! Its not aundant yet but better than yesterday! I'm going for a nice massage tomorrow to help me relax a bit and also help with bloodflow.. Good to get the bad stuff out ur body!

I'm living in sunny south-africa! Its summer here now so enjoying the weather!

We're nearly in the tww!! Yay!! Its been quite a journey so far these past few weeks hey
