@idaho1745:  Hmm. I don’t temp but I do track EWCM and such. I know girls that temp say it can take a few month to start seeing trends. Also, your cycle can be really wacky after BC so who knows. But honestly, you BD so much (bravo!) that it doesn’t really matter when you ovulated because you can rest assured knowing you def got swimmer in during your fertile window. Tricky part is just knowing when to POAS. Hopefully you have some cheapies to pee on! Good luck:)

TCOYF says you ovulate on the last day of low temp, where the next high temp is 0.2 degrees C greater than the previous six temps. Hence I’m guessing you prob O’d on CD 19.

ps I find (non digital) opk’s really difficult to read, as it’s hard to tell if one line is darker than the other. Hence why I’m using a fertility monitor and temping – takes some of the guess work out of it.

From looking at your temps I think either CD 17 or 19, but its hard to say with a missing temp in there. Also, I don’t mean this to sound rude or condecending in any way, but I am just asking because your OPK results are very strange, are you sure you are using then correctly? Typically only a day or two of positive OPKs is normal, and in order for it to be positive the line has to be as dark or darker than the control, not just there like a pg test.

I must admit first that I essentially failed the FF quiz on this and ask constantly about when I O’d…but I too vote CD19.  If you have VIP membership you can create a poll on FF for people to vote- or maybe do so here.  I did that just because I was asking and getting confused all over again when my temp changed.  I am going w/ CD19 you can test as early as 9DPO (today) but FMU is best so at the least wait until tomorrow- 10DPO.  Most women try to test at 12DPO+ which would be in 3 days.  Sure you know this all, but FRER are the best tests out there so if you going to test early and seeing a BFN is going to be upsetting use a FRER.  

You should join the charters thread for more info and advice.

One last thing, your BD’ing makes me tired looking at it! GET IT GIRL!

@idaho1745:  Stick it out, I think at 12DPO the rate of accuracy is 70% or so.

CD19 was my guess before reading any of the thread. That makes tomorrow CD12, right? I’d say you could test then, but if a BFN would crush you, maybe give it until Monday? Good luck and fingers crossed!

Seems to me that you ovulated on day 19. Good luck!
