teacherbee01 :  if you are still going to do OPKs, then I would definitely temp. I abandoned temping after 3 days after AF because I could never remember as soon as I woke up. But it would have been nice to confirm the OPK results. I’m nervous that ClearBlue was wrong.

teacherbee01 :  I usually ovulate on CD17 or 18 and have a 30 day cycle. 

I personally go back and forth on temping. I really hate having to take my temp each morning. I don’t know why, but I hate doing it. And my clearblue OPKs have been pretty accurate from what I’ve gathered. So the only reason I’m doing it is to watch my temp AFTER ovulation for any indication of pregnancy.

Hey all! I was away this weekend and didn’t have much computer access….So I didn’t test on 9/4 as planned because my temp dropped that morning and I was SURE that meant AF was showing up that day, and I’d rather see her than waste a test and get a BFN. But 2 days later, she still hasn’t showed so I think I’m going to test today! I was debating waiting till tomorrow morning so I could have FMU but I don’t know, I think if I just do a long hold, it should be accurate. I’m still not holding much hope for a BFP due to timing AND weird low temps this cycle, but now I’d just rather know for sure so I can stop thinking about it!

teacherbee01 :  Hmm it’s hard to say. Usually I love temping because I feel it gives you more clarification that you definitely O’d than OPKs. And I’ve been doing it for a long time now (way before we even started TTC) so I’m comfortable getting up at the same time every morning and don’t find it super annoying anymore. BUTTTT, when you are having weird cycles (like I am this month) temping is the worst because every morning if your temp is not what you want it to be, it is stressful! At least that’s how it is for me. During a normal cycle, I love temping though. 

beignetwife :  Wait a few days before testing again! 8DPO is def early! And I love your list memes! lol

teacherbee01 :  I would BBT. I am going on 2 days late. If I wasn’t BBT I would be driving myself insane on why am I getting BPN, I am late, etc. I know AF will be here prob tonight or tomorrow since my BBT temp dropped this morning. Also to me its nice seeing the spike to confirm ovulation when the tests only show that your body is trying to get your body there to ovulate.

TeeVee :  I am literally in the same boat as you. I am two days late and I dont want to waste a test. I thought if your temp dips that means AF will be here?

Has anyone used soft cups for TTC? I’m not sure how I feel about them.

beignetwife :  Thanks. I just put my order in for this upcoming month through amazon to try the soft cups since I kept hearing good things. You can get 20 for $12. I figured this would be my trying something new for this upcoming month.

mama2bee71 :  Yeah usually it does mean that! But, mine went back up this morning. Not hugely up though, but right at the coverline :/ so I figured it may be worth it to test if I don’t get AF this afternoon. My body is weird though, there have been cycles where I’ve gotten a temp drop and AF came that same day or the day after. And cycles my temp has not dropped at all and AF came anyway. 

beignetwife :  I’ve not used them for TTC, but I’ve tried them for AF before, and I had a really hard time getting them out…..so I don’t know if I’d want to deal with that again for TTC purposes lol Some people swear by them though!

TeeVee :  Looks like AF is here (super light tho). I hope for you that you get a BFP!!!
