Ladies, I need your advice. I am currently in my 18th cycle of TTC. My cycle is 30-31 days, today is CD12. According to several calendar apps I would ovulate around the 29th or 30th. However I got a peak on the CBEFM today. The monitor usually gives me a peak several days earlier then the calendar. I tend to want to believe the monitor as it is testing my hormone level but obviously things haven’t been going so well as we are still not KU!
Darling Husband and I have very opposite schedules and have a difficult time getting BD in around O time. So my question is which dates should I focus on? CBEFM or Calendar? Obviously would love to do both and will try but our schedules are too opposite.
I should mention I never have noticible physical signs of O therefore kind of shot in the dark…

By “calendar” its nothing to do with charting/tempting right? Just an app based on cycle length? If thats the case CBEFM all the way! Do you examine the back of the sticks? I found the CBEFM to be very accurate and so have everyone I know who has used it.
If you want to post a picture of the back of your sticks I dont mind taking a look.
Good luck, I hope this is your cycle!!

@Sea_bass: Thank you! I just checked the back of the sticks (I had thrown them away ) but pretty sure I found todays and the lines were pretty much equal. I don’t temp due to working shift work, so loving the CBEFM (have been using it since June 2012) just frustrated with not getting a BFP yet, thought maybe something was wrong with my monitor. Trying not to get my hopes up but I have felt for awhile that cycle 18 was going to be it for us so I just want to make sure we get everything we can control “right”.
After all you have been through, I hope you get your sticky baby soon! FX

@lonsk: Oh I wasn’t a charter either. There was no way I could with my sleeping patterns. I loved the CBEFM so much. I have wonky cycles and it really showed me how I was O’ing on completely different CDs! If your lines are even then go at it I say! Now and the next few days if your schedule permits.
I so hope this is your cycle, 18 cycles, I can’t even imagine how hard it must be for you.
BIG HUGS & BABY DUST YOUR WAY!
