Anyone read this? It is a free leaflet on iBooks.

It basically says a lot of people stop trying too early after their positive OPK, and that ovulation can be delayed, so to try for 5 days after (missing day 4).

I'm trying it this month, anyone currently in their fertile period want to join me?!

Good Luck!

I read about this when we were ttc this baby. Hard going imo, but I know a few people who have succeeded.

Obviously I won't be joining you, as my muffin is baking! Good luck with it all smile

I'm in lottie!

Read it in my lunch break! DH is in for a shock!!

babyrose Wed 08-May-13 17:48:49

It sounds like a good plan! Think will give it a go.

CrazyLottie Wed 08-May-13 17:53:20

Skelosia - thanks! I read a bit more about it today - apparently in a test group it increased success rates by 40%. Well done with your muffin btw!

Beccadugs - great to have a buddy! What cycle day are you on? I'm on day 14, second day of High Fertility, expect my Peak tomorrow. BDed last night and even that caused an argument as DH was so tired!

Beccadugs Wed 08-May-13 20:51:03

I'm on CD17 of 33 so two days into peak fertility! DTD tonight and then for next two, as due to OV on Friday according to app. Also spotting some EWCM today.

Thought the book was v interesting about testing early and 60% of fertilisationsnstill not working shock

I also had a big row on Sunday with DH as he was tired!!

CrazyLottie Wed 08-May-13 21:18:23

Babyrose - sorry missed your post. Please do join us! What cycle day are you on?

Beccadugs - keep at it after OV! The tension can get bad can't it ... We've been trying for about 12 months, I am on every supplement going, charting, fertility monitor, Conceive Plus and just bought a Femmecup! I don't think guys understand how much of a mission it can become. Fingers crossed this is our month. How long have you been trying?

babyrose Wed 08-May-13 21:48:45

I'm on cd4 af has stopped and had cramp tonight which is strange for me.

It certainly does become a mission! I'm starting early this month not missing a chance this time!

CrazyLottie Wed 08-May-13 22:52:42

Good luck!! Keep me informed!

This is our first month, after not really trying for six months last year and then stopping as we got screwed over by some builders and left with half a house! House now in the home stretch so trying with earnest! Having put our lives on hold for 9 months I am keen to give my self the best chance!

Sadly DH is working late so no DTD tonight... But will go back at it tomorrow when I think I'll ovulate...

CrazyLottie Thu 09-May-13 23:49:38

Weird coincidences - also been renovating a house and got screwed over by builders (including a campaign of harassment after we sacked them) - and I got another High Fertility today, so pretty sure I will ovulate tomorrow too.

Beccadugs Fri 10-May-13 08:42:21

How weird!! I am patiently waiting for my ovulation, I can usually tell as I get dreadful pain! I did have the pain on Sunday and am worried I might have ovulated really early... No positive opks since, but I did forget this morning!! Oops!

CrazyLottie Fri 10-May-13 13:18:48

Got my Peak today, let me know if you test later!

Beccadugs Fri 10-May-13 18:58:05

Negative OPK... V confused as plenty of EWCM... Will test again tomorrow...

CrazyLottie Mon 13-May-13 21:14:59

Did you test again yet Beccadugs?

I used Boots OV tests this month along with my CBFM, no positives, along the line was definitely stronger on the day I had my Peaks with the monitor ...

Chandelierforagirl Mon 13-May-13 22:54:03

I don't have an ibook, can anyone tell me the basics? I'm about CD 5 or 6.

Beccadugs Mon 13-May-13 22:58:31

Hi Lottie! Finally for a positive yesterday, so DTD! Second day today has been scuppered by me splendiferous most of the morning in AE with a biliary colic attack! All fine now, but excruciating and frightening at the time.

wrighty2010 Tue 14-May-13 20:37:11

Hi, I think it was worth a try. A friend of mine said that she missed her ovulation and tried 3 days later just in case and got caught, so may be worth a try?! Good luck xxx

CrazyLottie Tue 14-May-13 21:19:15

Chanderlier - The basics are - start BDing on day 8 and then do it every other day until you get a +ve OPK, then do it 3 nights in a row, miss a day and then one more time. I might have messed up this month though, didn't do the 3rd night or the night after - and my DH is out tonight! Although did manage a couple of nights before I got my High Fertility on my monitor, which I'm hoping has increased my chances!

Beccadugs - you okay?! Sounds terrible - maybe rest tonight and get back to it tomorrow!!

Wrighty - I am gutted I've missed the last few nights, would have forced the issue tonight but DH is out :-(

Chandelierforagirl Wed 15-May-13 19:15:33

Thanks Crazy!

Beccadugs Wed 15-May-13 22:58:09

Much better thanks now thanks!

And hello to the new SMEPers!

If you want more info chandelier I think if you google it all the info is freely available in the lady who wrote its website! I'll try to post a link when I'm not using my phone!

CrazyLottie Fri 17-May-13 20:52:27

Okay, I'm officially into my hysterical symptom-spotting phase. Funny tummy today for a bit, hoping implantation and not another early AF (21 day cycle last month!)

Beccadugs Fri 17-May-13 21:58:46

Me too!

Pain in my lower back, nausea, crampy feelings!

Nightmare wink grin

CrazyLottie Mon 20-May-13 18:39:39

Tested today (3 days before period due) - BFN :-(

Beccadugs Mon 20-May-13 23:04:10

Ah sorry Lottie! But remember it is not over until the fat lady (in this case AF) sings.

I am feeling very crampy this evening so think AF might be on her way a whole week early :-(
