    Hi there. My husband have been trying for #1 since february. No luck. I thought it would happen once I went off bcp's, but so far, nothing. I know two months is nothing, But my dh has cousins that arent even trying that end up pregnant.

    I bought an assortment of hpt for when the special day comes so i can be sure :) I even bought 40 ovulation test strips which I am going to start using on 4 days... Cross your fingers for me and my hubby.

    I was looking for someone who is in the same boat as I am so we can chat about ttc our first baby :) Any Takers??

    Have you been trying the opk test strips at all? I tried the first repsonse fertility test that you are supposed to take on the 3rd day of your period and last month it said I was good to go and I took one a few days ago for this cycle and it also said good to go. I tried ovulation predictors last month but I never got a positive. I think maybe I wasnt testing during the right time of my cycle, I was just antsy cause my dh was leaving town for 5 days and I think it was during my o time. I got some strange discharge (sorry tmi) on cd17 and 18, but it wasnt quite how everyone describes ovulation cm ... I guess I will describe it... sorry tmi again... It was very stretchy, somewhat cloudy/faintly brown but still translucent if that makes sense at all. But it wasnt slippery at all. Just very very stretchy. Any ideas?? I also dont know when to really start testing for ovulation?? If what I described was indeed ovulation, It was a bit late in my cycle I thought. Im rambling now... :) I did get my period on cd29, but it was very heavy with lots of cramping and clotting, I had taken a hpt a few days before and it was -. So I dont think it was that.

    Everyone keeps saying that there is never tmi on this site, but I still feel I need to say it after I post something wil tmi in it. lol

    I really don't know much about cm at all :( maybe you could start a new thread about it and see what everyone else says.

    My OPKs are white like a lamb. Which is weird because I have a long LP so I should be ovulating any day... :S

    I just got a + opk today!!! I was so surprised!!

    Are you not getting a control line either??? If not, then there is something wrong with them. Do you have a picture??

    Huh.... what time are you testing?
    They say not to test with fmu, and it can't be hot. Room temperature is what I read.
    Maybe you're ovulating later this month, I know I was surprised I did so soon after af.
    Try testing at 12pm and again at 5 if you can... I hope you get a + soon :)

    If you're using the strips then ya. Its weird. I pee in my designated cup and set the cup in cold water for a minute to cool it down a bit. So far its worked good.

    Yeah I talked to a couple other people from here and you shouldn't have to cool your pee on most of the OPK's. Had a Dr's appt today, I go in on the 15th to draw blood to see if I'm even ovulating. So fx everything is ok.
