Share you biggest/best DIY project (baby, wedding, home, cooking) to date: ugh I wish I had some fantastic picture to put here but I really don’t…I am not a DIY-er. I love looking at all of the creative things other people make and I just always buy them rather than attempt to make it myself. Lame I know…

@FreckledFox: I tried the OPK too but my doctor advised against it. I know, initially IK was like “why???”. He said, well, if you don’t get anxious when you use the kit, then go for it, but if you get anxious your anxiety alone could cause your ovulation to be delayed (again imapct of stress). Because I was seeing myself getting anxious for an O date I thought it best to avoid.. I think I may just reduce my temp frequency..
WOWWWW gorgeous cake!

@proudcatlady: I get crazy but I have never O-ed BEFORE a + OPK, so its helps me to narrow down my O window. 🙂 I usually POA-OPK starting CD15 since I’m a late ovulator. It helps to pass the time until O!
Hi Lady!!! 😀

Share you biggest/best DIY project (baby, wedding, home, cooking) to date: My wedding would be my biggest. I had alot of diy. I’ve also done random stuff around the house like a couple of wreaths. I also refinished our dining room table. Not exactly super amazing but it’s a nice upgrade to a $35 Craigslist find. 🙂

charters – need help…
FF is saying that yesterday and today are my fertile days yet it is still showing fertile days for later in the month on the calendar. HELP LOL – so confused?
Post # 57
also – what do you ladies thing about this OPK? Looking at on here, it is looking negative to me…took it with FMU though…
Post # 58
@katie395: that’s a negative OPk. Needs to be as dark or darker than the control line to be positive. Maybe test later tonight and see what it looks like. A lot of people on here test twice a day to make sure they don’t miss their surge.
FF is just making guesses. It bases its data off of the information it has And averages of people. Since you haven’t been charting for very long, it doesn’t have a lot to work with. As you add more data each month, it gets more accurate. Any time you have wet CM or EWCM it marks your calendar as being a fertile day even though you may not O for A while.
I generally get lots and lots of wet CM and this days where FF says I’m fertile, yet I won’t O until days later.

@katie395: Not positive yet but it probably will be in a few days!
From the front it does. The back was a mess though which was fortunately hidden in my hair! Also the clip that I glue gunned onto the back fell off when we were getting ready so I had to also stitch that back on. Did not look nice but it worked! I have my fingers crossed for you so hard! I hope this cycle is it for you, or that at least you get some more answers to get you closer!
That sucks that the time makes such a huge difference for you. If temping is stressing you out that much though it seems like OPKs couldn’t help but be better? at least you wouldn’t be losing sleep!
wow that cake is amazing. You’re so talented!!

@katie395: Hi, I agree with @Glasgowbound:
… it’s probably a negative OPK for now as they say for OPK the line needs to be as dark as the control line. FF will keep trying to guess your fertile day/O until it actually catches a temp rise – it kept guessing mine for the next 7 days! Hang in there – FX O will come soon!!

@Utopia4us: Well, I still think you did a great job on it. Thank you, girlie. I am hoping this cycle just hits us all with BFPs. I think we waited long enough, right?
