I’ve just started tracking my BBT this month, on CD13 and been taking supplements for a few weeks now, anyone else on their second cycle?

Hiya, yep! Me too! I had a loss in january and started TTC straight away after.
I've tried tracking ovulation but not had a positive yet...... LMP was 2/3rd March so hopefully soon. Had CM yesterday and slight spotting (very minimal and very very pale pink) hoping this is a good sign! BD begins (or continues) now! Good luck! Also on all the supplements to support everything x

@ElleJones1 sorry to hear of your loss! Looks like we’re on similar schedule as my LMP was 1st March (although my periods at 8 days long which is normal for me). Currently CD14 and predicted ovulation is CD20 but I’ve started using the ovulation tests to see if it comes earlier or as predicted. I’m using natural cycles as well to track BBT.

keep me updated 🀞🏼 I’m just going to go for every other day BD and every day around ovulation and hope for the best πŸ˜…. Last month I drove myself insane with thinking I was pregnant though so going to try not to symptom spot! X

Ah I totally get it. Every little niggle I think is something! :(
I'll keep you posted, it's actually nice chatting on here because everyone is in the same boat! No symptom spotting, just go with it and enjoy! I need to take my own advice!! x

@ElleJones1 I know right and there's no judging which is nice.

Do you have a day of prediction for ovulation? X

Flo app says 16th March but my surgical abortion was 1st Feb and I had bleeding for 5 days then very scarce bleeding 1st and 2nd March which I'm still not sure was an actual period?? It started red but turned brown very quickly and was so short so I'm a bit baffled by it.
I hope it was so my body is back to normal but who knows?? x

@ElleJones1 oh bless you πŸ˜”. Are you tracking ovulation with the ovulation tests? That would be a good way of seeing if you're ovulating along with temping if you can? X

I've been doing the strip tests every day but they have never been darker to show a positive result. I'm really worried I'm just not ovulating 😫x

@ElleJones1 I found in the first month to test 2/3 times a day to catch my peak when I was nearing my predicted ovulation day. This was what mine looked like but I think I get a two day surge.

My apps are saying fertility likely from now until Sunday! Eek 😬

It's a lot isn't it to get into! I had no idea how consuming it would all be. I'm trying to not become obsessed but I totally am!! I might nip home in my lunch break to open the new CB delivery and see what that looks like and have a go!! x

@ElleJones1 you're not predicted to ovulate until the 16th though, which could mean you might ovulate after. At least if you don't ovulate you know rather than have expectations when AF is due. Im going to Google to see what it says about the clearblue test x

I just entered the details in the clearblue website and got this!

In this cycle, you've missed the ideal date to start testing.
We advise you to wait for your next cycle before using Clearblue Ovulation Tests, as it is possible that you missed your LH surge in this cycle.
In your next cycle you should start testing:
on Day 11 with Digital Ovulation Test,
on Day 8 with Advanced Digital Ovulation Test,
on Day 8 with Connected Ovulation Test.
Count the first day of your next period as Day 1

@ElleJones1 don't apologise hun! Its so difficult when we're trying to learn our bodies and navigate our way through!

I'd keep testing daily, do you have some of the cheap ovulation tests that you could use? Those are the ones I use daily on the run up to predicted peak day. Then use the clearblue expensive ones after your next period if you don't catch this month x

I think I'll give up testing and go old fashioned and just DTD. I find it so stressful waiting on a test :(xx
Hopefully I haven't missed it yet and if I try every day, if it's meant to be, it will be. Last time, we DTD just three times in one cycle so here's hoping!
I will just hope and pray it works this month x

@ElleJones1 I just seen your other message, we're all guilty of this!! 🀣 what about tracking your temperature and then taking the ovulation tests when your temperature rises? Saves having to look at a negative line all the time. I've found it's working for me and I'm able to understand my body more x

My LMP was 2nd March so I'm baffled?? But I'm trying not to over think it, just gonna carry on DTD and hope for the best! I read somewhere that some people test twice a day as the surge only comes up once? And possibly only once even if you do it twice?? Ah well! Mind boggling stuff. I'll go old fashioned I think x
