I know it's my own fault that I'm confused, because I'm not temping or charting anything, but I'm wondering if I completely missed O'ing this month.

It's really hard to say. I hated going by FF or another websites estimates on when I ovulated because going by that, I would have missed it everytime. It took me about 3 months off of bc to really get my cycles straight enough to know when O was coming and when AF was coming.

If you're not "charting" or checking CM or temps, OPKs, etc. than I would suggest trying to BD every other day or at least every couple of days until AF arrives. That way you always know you'll nail it. ;) It sounds like you're doing a pretty good job! GOOD LUCK!

I understand not wanting to temp or OPKs or anything. But maybe you should at least keep track of your CM, which is a very good indication of when you O. The pp advice was good, BDing every other day or every 2 days should cover you whenever you O. As for this month, if you did O on the 29th or 30th, the BD on the 29th could get you pregnant. But, just basing off of cycle length is really not a good way to figure out when you O.

I agree with the ladies. If you just want to do the bare minimum, check cm whenever you go to the bathroom. You're most fertile once it gets watery & when it turns to ewcm -typically you O very soon after ewcm...

Good luck

I do somewhat keep track of my cm, and based on that I think I O'd on the 2nd or 3rd. I just wasn't sure if that was as good an indicator as some other things. I'm still new at this. But, my cm was really watery Saturday, so if I go by that, then I would think our BD'ing was actually timed pretty good!

Cm is definitely one of the best fertile indicators. Generally, cm dries up after O & then may get sticky or creamy in the 2ww...
