Withalittlesparkle - no I'm not dabbling in acid at the moment
I just wondered if I'd be removing the winning little swimmer ... or do they go further up? (I'm a novice as you can tell!)
Just started using the CB sticks - got a dark line (but not as dark as the control line) a couple of days ago but now I'm getting pale/not really there at all lines and only on CD 11 so wondering if I've just ovulated super early this month?
Sperm, especially healthy ones and super strong and super sticky!! they arent coming out until they absolutely have to!!!
As for the OV sticks its hard to say, anything can alter the colour of the line, for example if you drank more the previous day OR if your peeing at different times... also your levels may flucuate during the month. Some people have recorded what appears to be dip before a peak... but Im not sure...
How long have you been TTC? and what are your cycles like?
Thanks Withalittlesparkle - I thought that may be the case
Will keep going with the sticks - only a few days in so shouldn't really be worrying yet
TTC for 6 months (didn't think it would take this long as we certainly didn't try very hard for baby #1! Infact I now wonder how we were so lucky!) but had an EMCS so that could be something to do with it?
Cycles have been bob on 28 days but as soon as we decided to buy the sticks I had a 35 day cycle - sods law!
also - I think I had EWCM just after CD6 - we DTD on DD8 and 10 but now I'm feeling period like pains low down and I've been known to have just a 12 day gap in the past so wondering if it's all over for us this month already
