    i don't bd everyday... my af is due today and if it comes then i plan to bd every other day after the last day of my period and ill also be testing with opks and once i get that positive i will bd for 3 days straight then back to every other day.

    i have heard that bding every day isn't good, it decreases your DH's sperm count.. so give it a try to bd every other day so that way your DH has a chance to build up the sperm count.

    To be honest with you I just use the Clear Blue Easy Digital OPK, it gives a smiley for go for it, and a blank face for not today. It has worked very well for me this month, as there are no lines to go by. They are around $35 at CVS or you can get them online for a little cheaper. I think sex everyday would wear me out, even if my OH was open to doing that. You are a better woman than me, I would be laid out alseep, lol...

    katertots, i have cb digital opks too but i never got a pos. either i missed it or i tested too late into my cycle. how many times do you test a day? i plan to test 2-3 times a day just to be damn sure i get that positive! i want a bfp for my birthday which is in 34 days which is plenty of time to get a bfp before then since my cycles are only 28 days and my af is due today. yup. even though it hasnt came yet but i have a feeling it will tonight for sure. boooo.

    PTR, I tested 2 times a day, once at 12pm and once at 7pm. I did use the cheapies that expire after 30 days of opening (answer brand) and if it gave me a line, then I used the expensive CBE OPK to get a nay or a yay on the line call. That line drives me CRAZY! I cant tell if its on or off. One day I tested at 12pm with CBE OPK and it was happy face, then at 7pm I tested right before BD and it was blank. So it is most likely i O'd over night and it wore off as the day went on. I have my fingers crossed for you, I am SURE you will get a BFP soon!!!!!

    Babygirl, try taking your BBT too. That works well for me :)

    I am doing it orally, but I am regretting that decision. My temps are off the wall erratic, but I read that could be because maybe I slept with my mouth open? I would recommend doing it vaginally if you are comfortable with that. I did not want to waste hose OPK tests either, but when I got the faint positive later that day I figured, what the heck I might as well. You only live once!! :D

    that's true, i didn't think about the open mouth thing.. i dont sleep with my mouth open but who knows i probably do! how am i supposed to know if i am totally fast asleep and dont feel anything during the night LOL. it just would seem awkward for me to temp with a thermometer up my vagina with my DH right next to me? what if he wakes up and sees me and asks, "what are you doing?!?" i would feel kind of embarrassed...

    ahh the things we do to make a baby!

    I completely agree!!!!! I thought about that too, but if it works, why not? LOL. I didnt think I slept with my mouth open either, but I thought that may be a reason for the crazy temp change, did you see how crazy it was on the link to my chart? INSANE!

    He prob thinks I am nuts when he looks over and sees me taking me temp every morning at 6am!

    I know what you mean. I was on BC for 11 years, I quit had a period every month all irregular but heavy, and then last month I was 2 weeks late, but not pregnant, but Dr says hormone levels are normal. That does not sound very NORMAL to me.

    We do it everyday and have been ever since AF left. (We did skip last night). We will do it until I get a positive OPK then we will just go with the flow.

    I have 2 already and we have always done it everyday till I got a BFP! Maybe thats why I have 2 boys. LOL

We just started this on this cycle but will continue to dtd atleast twice a day till i ovulate n i know when im ovulating because i get crampy and usually spot. But hey hubby isnt complaining and neither am i :D
