DC1 was unplanned, so I have no idea about when is the best time for ovulation etc.

My last AF was on the 30th of May lasting 5 days (the 5th day was so light I didn't even bother with a tampon- does that count?)
My cycles are 29 days long.

You all seem like pros here so wondered if anyone can advise me on when would be the best time to conceive. blush smile

hi twinkle, I will give that a go and see hoe we get on. It's quite annoying as I'm not sure how fertile everything is. I'll try not to get too wrapped up in cervical mucus etc!

I'm in the same position Courgette - trying not to get obsessed but failing miserably so far grin

Do not get hung up on possible times of ovulation; that way madness lies. It is hard to self predict ovulation with any real degree of accuracy and "signs" can be wrong.

Generally speaking, if your periods are regular in nature you are more likely to be ovulating regularly but even normally fertile women have the occasional anovulatory cycle.

Would suggest you keep the pressure off yourselves and make love when you both feel like it. Two or three times a week throughout the month is fine.
