tiffanybruiser :   cadillacbesos :   ladycomfypants :  thanks guys. I think I was just spoiled by the bfp at 9dpo in the summer and now I feel super disappointed. My app is telling me to expect AF sometime between Sunday and Tues so I guess I’ll know more then. On the plus side, one of the amazing bee mom’s from my November 2015 group is mailing me all her extra hpts, so I’m excited to get that package 🙂

mrscorgi :  in the same position as you right now! Having pos opks (still) but hoping I don’t O for at least another day or so!!! I wish I started them sooner so I’d know what my normal positive looks like lol (as in if my lines are strong leading up in the days before…) cause it’s so dang early. Oh well. I’m hoping Darling Husband can make it home before he goes out tonight so we can BD just in case 😬 …. possible chance for when he gets home but I may be in bed by then.

Do you guys start OPKs earlier than your FW as opposed to when you think you would ovulate just in case? My ovia app was pretty accurate last month but I didnʻt get OPKʻs until my FW and this month I am prepared.

danakxox :  I start using them once a day when I first notice EWCM, which is usually around day 8 or 9. When I feel like O is impending (usually day 11ish), I crank it up to 2 or 3 OPKs a day (3 is overkill but I can’t control myself).

ETA: The first cycle that I used them though I started sooner – pretty soon after AF ended actually cause I had no idea what to expect and didn’t want to miss my surge. But now that I’ve used them a few times I feel confident that I can wait until EWCM appears to start busting through em.

amanda1988 : tiffanybruiser :  never felt EWCM but I donʻt stick my finger up there :/ I should! last cycle  (first one off the pill) was 35 days so I ovulated around CD20 but I was a total noob and just got lucky catching that O. On the pill my cycles were 28 days so Iʻm wearing of resorting back to that and missing my FW altogether. Tomorrw is CD11, I might start then just in case.

danakxox :  Lol I stick my finger up there all the time during the FW…I have no shame at this point. Also, Too Much Information, but I’ve found the best time to notice EWCM is right after a Bridesmaid or Best Man. Anyway, if I were you I’d start with the OPKs tomorrow on CD11 just to be safe.

FYI, my first cycle off the pill lasted 32 days. Since then they’ve been 24, 26, and 26 days (and I think the current one will be about 27 days). So yours might be shorter this time…. I think it’s pretty common to have a longer-than-usual cycle when you first come off the pill.

I’m out! AF arrived today. Left me with an 11 day L.P. (by OPK’s), not sure what to think of that?!
Feel a bit gutted, our timing was perfect this month, kinda had myself convinced this would be it after the MMC in Sept.
Anyway, on to December! GL everyone who’s left and congrats to all the BFP’s!!

amanda1988 :  Thanks! I think I will. I have a lot of LH in my system at all times I think. Iʻve never gotten a stark white LH, and even had pretty good lines before AF well after O in my 2ww so I may have to be weary of false positives which I wasnʻt even aware of last cycle. I got digital O testers this cycle if I get a positive LH strip.
