I'm on CD 8 and just about to start the joys of fw and OPKS again for cycle 6 of ttc #1
Anyone else approaching/in fw and got any new tips/ideas you're trying this cycle? Or anything you did different which resulted in BFP? How often if everyone dtd?

Me! I'm on cd 12. Haven't had a positive opk yet as I don't tend to ovulate until around cd 16/17. Overall aim is to dtd as much as possible! Didn't do it enough last cycle.. only once in fertile window

Merrz Mon 04-Dec-17 14:16:35

I was the same last cycle, only dtd once around when i think i ov. I haven't had a +ve opk for a few months now so hoping this is the one fx. The build up to fw is almost getting as bad as 2ww confused

Me!! I’m 9dpo today so same as you I think. Last month I didn’t ovulate until day 20 though but body still settling after coming off bcp so hoping this month will be shorter.

We are going to try the Sperm meets egg plan this month!! Meant to start at 8dpo though but DH was too tired last night...not the best start haha

HellaBella0 Tue 05-Dec-17 18:30:42

Oops sorry meant cd9 not 9dpo!! Still getting used to the lingo blush

Merrz Tue 05-Dec-17 19:07:15

Hi HellaBella yes cd9 too. I'm starting using opks from tomorrow. I'm going to try and do eod starting tomorrow, I suspect I will ovulate around day 16 so don't want to wear the out too early

LoveTheBear85 Tue 05-Dec-17 19:13:06

I'm only CD4 (cycle 2 TTC #1) but I have bought a thermometer and just want to check that I am ovulating so will be tracking temps this month. To be fair, we have literally only just start trying but with my cycles being a bit nuts, I just want to understand a bit more about me.

Sealaplace Tue 05-Dec-17 19:51:30

Can I join in?
CD12 of cycle 1 ttc#1. Totally new to this but becoming quickly obsessive! Not using opk or anything this month and seeing how it goes but joining on here to see if anyone has advice.

HellaBella0 Tue 05-Dec-17 20:54:02

@LoveTheBear85 that’s what I’ve been doing. I just wanted to see if I ovulated etc as before I went on the pill my cycles weren’t very regular. It seems I am ovulating but going to carry on as there are still a little bit unpredictable. What cycle is everyone on? We’re only on #2 (although temping since Sept) so newbies really

Merrz Wed 06-Dec-17 16:05:24

This is cycle 6 for me. I actually have to set my alarm for 10 mins early this week between temping and opks confused it's mental.
This is my 1st cycle temping, i also just want to check if i'm ovulating. Will be interesting to see everyone's charts after ovulation.
Sealaplace Hi! Have you just come of bc?

HellaBella0 Wed 06-Dec-17 16:33:22

Here are my charts so far in case you’re interested. The first one (Sept) is straight after bc so is quite long at 40 days. The second one is October (second month off pill) and was a bit shorter at 32 days.

Hi guys Cd 16 today and got a near pos opk smile been doing sperm meets egg since cd7, however didn’t do it last night so hopefully will do it tonight, then get pos opk tomorrow then dtd for 3 more days in a row. smile

Sealaplace Wed 06-Dec-17 16:55:18

@merzz yeah I just got the copper coil taken out a couple of weeks ago but cycle seems to be undisturbed! Fingers crossed x

louella99 Wed 06-Dec-17 16:56:03

@Gem173 same here, doing SMEP. I'm on cd 14 and haven't had my positive opk yet. Anticipating ovulation on cd 17/18 so will do the 3 days in a row and see what happens!

louella99 Wed 06-Dec-17 16:56:53

(Will do the 3 days in a row when I get my opk obvs, I don't mean we're starting now)

Gem173 Wed 06-Dec-17 17:16:02

@louella99 good and yeah I understand same here just hoping my opk will darken tomorrow morning, if not then I won’t have ovulated :/

Gem173 Wed 06-Dec-17 18:13:39

Yay got my pos smile top one this morning, bottom one just now, cd16

Sealaplace Fri 08-Dec-17 09:34:25

I think we've done all we could in fertile week haha! Now the ttw begins. Feeling really rubbish today, been nauseous all morning and was sick after my coffee. I think I'm overly anxious as I just don't feel very settled. Hope everyone else is feeling a bit more positive!

Merrz Fri 08-Dec-17 09:49:26

Hi guys, sorry i have stopped getting e-mail notifications for MN so didn't notice these posts.
Yay Gem173 so satisfying when you get a proper positive opk isn't it!
I'm cd12, dtd last night and going to try every day and a half haha for the next week.
HellaBella you're September chart is good with the sudden dip before ovulation, that would be handy for predicting ov is coming rather than just seeing it has happened.

Gem173 Fri 08-Dec-17 10:25:34

Had a positive yesterday as well as day before. Haven’t tested this morning yet but doubt I need to as had pains last night. Have done the deed weds, thurs and possibly tonight too just in case. Although last night wasn’t very good as oh already relieved himself earlier on in the day :/

Merrz Fri 08-Dec-17 11:34:21

Sounds like you've timed it perfect Gem fx.

Owlpatrol Fri 08-Dec-17 18:36:18

Just about...currently cd5 can't blooming wait! Af week sucks!

Girls need your opinions on sperm friendly lubricants....has anyone had any success with these?

Merrz Fri 08-Dec-17 18:53:33

I'm with you Owlpatrol af week can feel as long as 2ww sometimes. I haven't used lube but I hear pre seed is good for the swimmers

Gem173 Sat 09-Dec-17 12:47:07

Tested opk today, got a neg, tested yesterday and think it was negative (was in a rush so didnt wait for it to fully develop, but no line showed within time frame. So think I ovulated cd17 which makes today 2dpo

Merrz Sat 09-Dec-17 13:06:11

Good Stuff Gem how long are your cycles? When will you poss?
I'm CD13 now, neg opp yesterday will keep testing but suspect will of around CD 16
