I am trying for #4 and this is cycle 2 for us also. It is sooo easy to become obsessed with this whole process! I am trying really hard not to stress it too much because Im pretty sure it doesnt help.
I am using this site, mymonthlycycles.com to track, its pretty easy, you just enter the day you get AF and you can track symptoms and blah blah and then it calculates your cycle length for you and gives a fertile window and an estimated ovulation date. The account is free and Ive used it for years, really like it. You can set it up so you get a reminder in your email inbox when your fertile time is approaching or your AF is on her way. I also use OPK's I get the clearblue ones. I have a 29/30 day cycle so I start testing around CD13, this cycle I ovulated on CD16. Wow... reading this back... this whole TTC thing is a lot of work..lol.. all worth it in the end!
anyways... sending you lots of baby dust & best of luck!
You are so right!
#1 - was a surprise! no trying involved
#2 - got pregnant on the 1st try
#3- took about 18 months on & off trying. We would try for 3 months straight and then wed have to take a break for 2 months & then try again for 2 and take a month off here and there. It was heart breaking to get AF each month, it was getting tedious and I was spending a fortune of EPT's and I was crazy obsessed and stressed out. I decided to take EPRO & robitussin and use OPKs and got pregnant that month!
#4- we are on cycle 2, last month we just didnt use protection, BD around the time of O but nothing happened so this month I went back to EPRO & all that jazz.. used the OPK, O'd on the 7th... and we'll see what happens... cant test till the 19th! hope I make it!
