Hi Ladies!

I'm new to ttc and have a few questions about Ovulation.I will give you a brief summary about my cycles and you can tell me what you think.

I have normal 30-31 day cycles and this month i finally caught my first smiley face on a clearblue digital opk which was on cd 14

Totally normal! Lh surges vary in length -I'm on the short side too. When I opk'd I would get the positive in the afternoon & O sometime during the overnight (verified with morning bbt temp). More than likely you O'd but you can't officially confirm unless you are temping or get b/w to confirm. Sometimes our bodies gear up to O & you could get a smiley & then your body could change its mind, not O & then gear up & O at a later date, usually if you're sick or under stress. Keep an eye on your cm -it's generally watery or ewcm & then dries up after O or gets sticky & creamy.

I've also had pink spotting too & I think it's from dh hitting the cervix when we dtd when the cervix is in certain positions. Nothing to worry about. Other girls have gotten it too...

Good luck

Thanks Angela! I just wanted to make sure this was normal.One more question?Does drinking alcohol interfere with impantation?

In general, alcohol doesn't affect implantation, assuming you're not getting blackout drunk throughout your 2ww!

Many women get knocked up & drink & do lots of other things they probably shouldn't & still end up with bfps & healthy babies. Some gals choose not to drink during their 2ww while others "drink til it's pink".
