Trying anything new this month? I have been temping and charting carefullt for the last 3-4 months and last month (yes, my first cycle trying) i was feeling a little too anxious and overwhelmed.. So i decided to abandon temping! Ive been a little more relaxed this cycle. We are also trying to bd every night throughout the fertile window.

So far we’ve bd cd6,8, and 10. We weren’t able to yesterday (cd12) which kinda bummed me out. I’m so paranoid about missing the “right” day. Sigh. So picking it up again today at cd13. I’m so over ttc you guys 🙁

What day do you guys start to use OPKs? I have no idea what I’m doing. Do you pee in a cup? I’m a hot mess over here…

dispup :  Are you using Fertility Friend or another app? If so, I’d start using the OPKs on your fertile days according to the app. If not, I’d start right after your period ends and keep going until you get a positive. I’m doing the latter anyway because I’m really not sure when I O… even though I’ve been using FF for the past few months. Oh, and I prefer to pee in a cup and dip the stick! 🙂

Cote1590 :  i think thats pretty good timing so far? When do you usually o? I told myself we would bd oed this month but the beginning of the month was rough, we were tired..we only hit cd 4,5,12,15… So theres a big gap in between! But then my fertile week we bd cd 16,17,18,19… And still havent gotten a positive opk, so i feel yah. Im also scared i o’d early and missed it but who knows! It sure is overwhelming and tiresome!

CD15 over here. Gotten high readings on the advanced OPK the past two days. So if I follow the pattern of last cycle, I should get a peak reading tomorrow or the day after. I actually feel really good about our timing so far too. 

So am I the only one who thinks about things like If I’m pregnant this cycle, I can announce it with this holiday announcement and if I get pregnant next cycle, I could announce it this way, etc? I also tend to do that with the due dates. If I get pregnant this cycle, their birthday will be a month from their cousin’s or next cycle it’ll be close to this event or whatnot.

littleonewrites :  you are not the only one haha, my dh thinks im nuts for planning so far in advance! The worst part is that I plan it out so well in my head that when I find out im not pregnant, im kind od disappointed I cant do it! For example, if i got pregnant last cycle i was planning on having dh hold up a onesie that says “best gift ever” in sept when its his birthday to announce it… Buuut that wont happen lol.now ive ordered a tee shirt that says daddy since 2017 and hope to give it to dh for our anniv if i get pregnant this cycle… I know it sounds crazy!!
