We are going to start trying next cycle so I won’t be poas until September 4th if my cycles continue this way. I’ll be following this thread though, good luck bees!

Sansa85 :  That’s great that you’re tracking and learning about your luteal phase. After 9 months TTC I’ve finally gotten into the habit of charting every day; it’s nice to have that extra piece of info in order to confirm O!

My doc is sending me for day 3 and 20 blood tests, which I’m grateful for, and she’s talking about referring us to a fertility clinic once she has all the tests done that they’ll want. If we do need medical assistance we probably won’t pursue it for another year, when I’m closer to being done grad school, but we’ll keep trying on our own until then ๐Ÿ™‚

sassybeee :  woo hoo! Get on it ๐Ÿ™‚

AFM, I’m pretty sure yesterday’s OPK (2nd from bottom) was not quite positive, but this morning (bottom) was. What do you guys think? Was yesterday’s positive, or not quite? Either way, BD tonight! Pic also shows my chart…waiting for the temp jump so I can start obsessing over when I can test, lol.

n00bee :  thanks lol!

Hmmm, your top is definitely negative and bottom definitely positive. The middle one is tricky! I’d say it’s very very close. Either way, you’re good to go now! Have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): we are getting married this weekend and going to start ttc on our honeymoon! I’ve been taking prenatals for about 3 months. My cycles are normally like clockwork and I have very clear signs of ovulation so not planning to temp/ use OPK’s unless we have trouble after a few months.

Trying anything new this month? Getting married and ttc is new!

n00bee :  today definitely looks positive! Not sure what app you’re using for your tests, maybe Glow? I never get mine to show up on there. Have you tried using the app called Premom? I LOVE that one bc it will give me a ratio of how dark the test line is to the control…basically I can attach my test result to a number and it’s great LOL. And it will identify high and peak readings from the cheapy strips. Definitely recommend giving it a try!
