I used to lurk around the wedding boards before I got married a few months ago. We decided to start TTC this cycle, so I’ve been lurking here as well – all your posts have been very helpful but I am still quite a newbie (newbee?).
Just got off birthcontrol a few weeks ago and had my first period a few days after stopping. Of course I told myself I would just take it easy the first few months…not chart, etc… but… it sucks you in right? So I am not temping this cycle since I thought I would “take it easy” but I was using FF to track AF and BDs. And then.. I bought some cheap OPKs at Walgreens. Didn’t start testing until CD11. Got a series of negatives… was getting frustrated that maybe I had missed it or maybe it wasn’t going to happen. Was wishing I was temping!
But then, last night (CD19) got a very clear positive on the OPK! We BD this morning. Checked again this morning and also still had a clear positive OPK.
So this means I will likely ovulate later today? Or tomorrow? I’m a little confused. Should we BD again tomorrow morning (we can’t really tonight…) or is that “too late”?
If this cycle doesn’t work out I will definitely temp next cycle. Or does it make any sense to start now? Probably not because I would have no baseline, right?
Hopefully I used all these terms right… I’m trying my best to relax and enjoy this – promise. But at the same time I do want to give us the best chances.
