Yes test in the afternoon or evening (or both) haha
We are totally on the same cycle this month!
if i ovulate early then i would be due on christmas too!!! i calculated it yesterday!
wasn't exactl;y the plan but i will take a chriatmas baby anytime!
i did my first opk last night, haha negative, but i knew it would be but i like to monitor them as i get closer to ovulation.
I am still doing my temps and today i had a big spike, but i am not even going to entertain that i could have possibly ovualted cause i have never had a cycle THAT short. and i got my negative opk last night.
anyhow, i am excited that you and I are on the same cycle sooz! LETS GEZT IT DONE!!! to us
Hey i've M.I.A for a few days, but yes I started my opk's and no positive as yet.
To be honest baby-making has been one of the last things on my mind over the last week or so. We haven't really been bd'ing at all and i've tried my best but forgot to take an OPK every day.
I've been really ill with the flu I never normally say I have the 'flu' always refer to it as a cold but this time it's been so different. I had a very high temp over the weekend of 39.8 and just slept and slept and slept. Never have I felt so ill! Then I got thrush.... AGAIN (only had it a couple of months ago) So had a pessary yesterday and hoping it clears up before I get a positive opk!
still no + opk Day 22 now... It's so frustrating! I am supposed to be having day21 progesterone blood tests (day 21 for average cycles... obviously with my wacky cycles could be day 4543347 lol) but obviously if I haven't O'd yet no point in going....
I really don't think I'm O'ing though. I have cut out caffeine this month which has been wonderful even though i've been going to sleep at 9pm lol The next thing on my list to improve my chances is to gain weight! My weight fluctuates between 102-105lbs which at 5ft4.5 gives me a pretty low bmi of 17.2-17.7 (by medical terms this is anorexic!)
I eat... and I eat and I eat some more but no weight gain! My metabolism seems to be through the roof! When I have fell pregnant in the past I have always been a healthier weight of around 112-119lbs it's only the past 18-24 months that i've weighed so little and i'm beginning to think it may be a problem The Dr has never commented on my weight though (but then she has never weighed me), but I do carry it well... I really don't look like I weight so little. I can't remember if my periods were this irregular when TTC in the past as it was so long ago, but I have a feeling that they were more regular than they are now.
So any tips on how to gain weight anyone? I'm trying to eat more regular by having smaller meals more often but it's hard to eat when your not hungry
hey guys, here is my update.
I had to go to a weekend away hen party this past weekend and i knew my ovulation date was coming up so..right when i got home on sunday the 8th i opk positive...but was tooo tired to BD. So on monday the 9th i got another OPK but unfortunatly my husband was workign night shift and we didn't have any time to BD again....so I texted him while he was working at night and told him to wake me up when he got home to we could BD, soooooo at 5 in the morning (i am thinking maybe 10 hours after i ovulated) we finially BD. I hope it wasn't too late and we can catch the egg
and that is where i am this month. slim but still a small chance.
Sooz, i totally thought that my wieght was playing into things also, 95 pounds. I didn't think i was ovulating - that is why i tried the temping....and found i was ovulating.
i have no helpful tips on gaining wieght, i have never been able to
ugh how frustrating.
Can I join? I am peeing on anything and everything this cycle, CBFM, digital OPK and cheapy OPK. I don't think I'm ovulating but for the opposite reason to you ladies, I'm overweight and think that's affecting my ovulation . I got peak days on the fertility monitor last cycle and I think I had a chemical as AF came a week late and I had a faint positive on an IC, but I'm really not sure. This month I've been temping but I'm not familiar with temping at all and they look all over the place to me! Oh well, time will tell! Hoping this will be a lucky thread!
Hey Krafty, of course you can join, the more the better, our group got a littel small...so it is great to have ya
i temp and use opks.
if you have any questiosn about the temps, let me know, i would be glad to look at your chart.
