I was SO optimistic that this was going to be THE month!
Alas, AF showed up lightly on Wed and was in full swing on Thurs.... Moving onto Cycle 4.

I sure wish I didn't suck at figuring out when I'm ovulating!

On the bright side.... At least odds are I won't be in labor next July when I plan on sitting in the theatre for the Midnight showing of the final Harry Potter film!

On the not so dark side.... I feel my clock ticking. I heard a baby crying at work the other day... it was a new one (you can always tell by that pathetic/adorable little cry!) and it renewed how badly I want to have another little one!

I'm sorry, Caroline :( I know the feeling, I think that EVERY month is THE month, lol!! I told some others on this board, that after nine months of trying, you would think I would figure out not to get my hopes up, but I must be a slow learner!

Thanks ladies.

I'm really wishing I'd started trying sooner. We wanted to have our 2nd when our daughter was 3... she'll be 4 in April so, if I get pregnant anytime soon, she'll be practically 5 by the time the kid is born! It's just so frustrating... as you all know from your own experiences!

No, I'm not charting. I charted during the month of September but either I didn't ovulate or I missed the signs... I've been using Fertility Friend to keep track of my period and during Sept I did the temping in the morning... however I think my thermometer is not very accurate or I was doing it wrong or something. IDK. I might buy some of the OPK's from the dollar store.

For those of you who use OPK's, when do you know to use one?
