Anybody else waiting to O? And lube question

Looking for buddies! I'm on CD9. No sign yet; checking temps, CM, CP, OPK twice a day. Should O next couple of days. Gonna BD, BD!
Haven't gotten any preseed yet. Is there really no other safe lube? I always need a little help getting him in initially. Do you think I need to go get the preseed NOW?

CD 10 here, should O Monday. This is my first month trying preseed, but I am planning on using it once I get a +OPK. Couldn't hurt to use it every time I guess? But is is a little spendy so I'm just gonna use it once we start the BD party! GL!

Preseed is pretty much the best. There is another brand out there but I don't remember it. The only other options are doing the organic methods like raw eggwhite but that kinda grosses me out but each to their own. I would start it now. Use about 2ml or less and try it every other day. Good luck

I am CD 11 thinking O is here or right around the corner. Lots of EWCM today and cervix is soft and high. Excited to get to that 2 week wait.

Tammy, that is weird to think someone would use raw eggs down there. Salmonella, anyone? I will go get the preseed esp since it seems to have worked well for you. Congrats BTW!

We used pre seed this month too. Hopefully you can find it in time for he big O! Someone mentioned they sell it at some cvs pharmacies but most of us just buy it online. If you google the main pre seed website there's a list of retailers by state so you might have luck tracking it down that way.

Last month I wasn't able to get pre seed in time but I found another lube called "slippery stuff" which is supposed to be ok. Obviously it's no pre seed but definitely a better option than all the sperm killing lubes out there. As far as lubes go it was pretty nice & it's not as expensive as pre seed. We'll probably just keep using it as a regular lube when we're not ttc but we'll keep using the pre seed during our fertile window. I was able to find it at a local pharmacy but I'm not sure how widely available it is in the states since we're Canadian

Good luck :)

Thanks!! :) It is really bizarre!! And Gross!! I read they use raw egg white...warm water...then there are actual recipes...some women mix the preseed with the eggwhite because of a ph balance issue. That's a little TOO scientific for me! I could just imagine all of us in our kitchen with our goggles and aprons on measuring ingrediants in beakers and test tubes and than turning to our DHs and saying, it's ready! HA HA HA! :D

Ha ha ha ha ha - you are too funny, Tammy! Raw egg whites do sound a bit dodgey. But hey, if I knew that would do the trick, I'd be whipping up raw egg whites in a heart beat!

I'm on CD11. O'd on CD 17 last month so I'm expecting it on Wednesday next week. This wait is killing me! Glad to have some buddies! :smileyhappy: Oh, and I'm still waiting for the OPKs to arrive in the mail. I keep obsessively checking the mailbox... nothing yet!

I'm still waiting. Starting to obsess that maybe I missed O, maybe it came while AF was winding down...probably not but I'm too anxious to get it on! Tonights gotta be the night! Thought I detected a change in CP this am. SO messed up my temp chart by putting heating pad on me while I was sleeping night before last (he was trying to be sweet, my back was hurting). If I throw out that morning I was up .2 this morning, isn't that a good sign?

0.2 seems like a pretty big shift, but I'm Canadian and I temp in celsius so I'm not sure how that translates to farenheit...

My OPKs finally arrived in the mail today and I got some EWCM this afternoon! Woot woot! I'm excited, but I just came down with a cold so I'm really gonna have to convince DH to get it on tonight! LOL Hope I don't get him sick!
