Yeah, my last pregnancy I tested at 8dpo in the afternoon. But anything before AF should be taken with a grain of salt. Were your levels low or did you just ovulate later than you thought that time? Also, if you do poas in the am do update I started po my first signals. I have like 40. Haha. It's like how you can takes shots of water out of a shot glass and get a satisfaction out of it. I just need to pee on a test lol

I had 3 consecutive days of ov + as well, but got a circle on the 4th. Did you still test after the 3rd day?

Hm have you been tracking O before? Just because you are due 5/15 doesn't necessarily mean AF comes that day. I know my lp is 13/14 days from previous charts. Or maybe you O really early? Although my cycles are always 27/28 unless something drastic happens so I don't have any reap insight. But I hate opks

Dobby, are opks unreliable? This cycle is my first time using them. Ttc #1 we were just sort of winging it, so decided to use opk this time. My cycles can be 27-32 days. Most of the time it's 29 though.

Anyway, I'm thinking I'm out this time. Been having my usual af symptoms of fatigue a week before, lower back pain & heavy feeling in lower abdomen.

They just never worked for me. I would get a ton of almost positives or multiple surges. So I would rather temp. Esp since I wake up at the same time for work, and weekends I just fall back asleep after. you're not out until AF shows. Early pregnancy symptoms and pms symptoms are annoyingly the same haha. But timing is never an issue. SO usually has a high drive. This month has been stressful at work so we haven't been all over each other. As for me, I get insatiable around O, so if I BD those days it usually ends up being 24-48h before I O anyway. So I'm less concerned about predicting O as I am about confirming it/ anxiously watching my temps post O

Can I join? AF is due for me around the same time. As far as symptom spotting I have had some tiny cramps and yellow snot like cm when I wipe. I don't remember if I had that with my son. I am only temping because it is hard to do opk's while my toddler stares at me when I pee.

Hello ladies! I'm 7dpo in my 3rd cycle ttc. I plan on testing on the 9th but af isn't due until the 12th. I've had cramps the last 2 days and my bbs are tingling this evening. I really don't want to look into it bc when you're ttc you notice EVERYTHING.

Oldermommy- I used mirena for 3 yrs and it took a very long time for my cycles to return to normal. My cycles use to range between 40-90 days so I know I wasn't ovulating. I'm sure each case is different but don't get down on yourself if it takes a couple of cycles.

haha that is funny! my 7 yr old tries to follow me still if he isn't paying attention to what i'm doing. I go in the bathroom and turn around to see him. I'm like "ummm buddy I'm gonna go potty now. I got this one by myself dude thanks" haha. Kids funny. I definitely notice everything. My most prominent sign right now is that I am usually a very nice, calm person...even when I was pregnant with my son, it was like it made me even more calm. But the past two days I swear I wanted to bite people's heads off and chew them for breakfast. My poor OH I was so grumpy

Hhaha me too! I was a b* to SO all day yesterday. He went riding with his friend and didn't text me they were running two hours late. And then he didn't text me when he got home. I was like WTF I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU WEREN'T HERE AND I JUST EFFING ATE BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T TELL ME YOU WERE COMING HOME RAGE. Then, I cried and flung myself on the couch like a child. He just stared at me and said, "I'm going to let this slide because I know you're hormonal, but there was a more constructive way you could have said all of that." And as a smart man, he fed me schwarma and got me pink berry hahaha
