I’m in exactly the same boat at you @preppysouthernbride! This will be our second try and I’m planning on doing pretty much exactly what you’re planning to do. Last month I did OPKs, prenatals, fish oil, BD eod, cut out alcohol and caffiene and ate healthier. This month I’m adding in temping & charting. Good luck to you!!!! Hopefully we’ll both get lucky this month!

preppysouthernbride:  We’re on cycle two too! Currently 8 dpo. Planning to test Saturday. Good luck! No real advice. Just trying to not get too worked up if it doesn’t take the first few months.

preppysouthernbride:  Thank you! It’s still very early. I think 4.5 weeks. Just hoping for a sticky baby 🙂

My cycles are also 25-26 days; I started using my OPKs on the 7th or 8th day after the first day of my period. I figured with a short cycle, sooner was better (though I didn’t get positive OPKs until day 12/13).

I got pregnant on the second cycle. On the first cycle I did prenatals and digital opk tests – I had two days with positive OPKs – BD’d both days. Nonetheless, AF came two weeks later.

The second go-round I added temping and Fertility Friend to my previous regimen. We ended up BD’ing the day before the OPK gave the go-ahead, and again on the day of the first positive. It was kinda cool because I could see that my temps of FF corresponded with the OPKs. Twelve days after ovulation, I got a BFP.

I dunno if our change in timing or my heightened awareness of my fertility signals helped out…or maybe it was just luck!

preppysouthernbride:  I got pregnant on cycle 4 of TTC.  What I had done differently that cycle was 1) lowered alcohol consumption and 2) stopped caffeine consumption.  I was already taking prenatals, eating pretty healthy/clean/whole foods, and charting.

If it didn’t happen that cycle, I was going to add OPKs.

interestingly, we only BDed on O or O-1 (I’m not 100% sure of O date, but it was one day or the other).  Also, we hadn’t BDed in over a week, since there was a mix up of my temps, and we thought we were past O.  So less stress, too?
