This "women's cycle" BS is so dang tricky.... So you might remember it was my goal to figure out exactly when I O this month, even if I didn't get a BFP I was going to count that as gold star. Anyway, I am CD 15 today and my cycle varies from 28 to 31 one days.... so I was expecting it this week. I've been using OPKs, monitoring CM and trying my best to temp trying to figure out the day.

Welcome to the wild & wacky world of ttc!! Lol! I wouldn't worry about not having perfect bd'ing because we've had perfect bd'ing these last 2 cycles & I've got nothing to show for it!! You've got some spermies up there & fingers crossed they get the job done! If there is a next cycle then I suggest you try some robitussin to help thin out your cm. The fact that you have cm is great though :)

Nothing you can do now but sit back & let the "real" crazy start!!! Bring on your 2ww ;) Good luck!!

Sorry to hear it was such a rough cycle Samantha! Hopefully you caught it without realizing it. :) As far as the OPKs go, they are really tricky. I prefer the Clearblue Digital OPK because it gives you a circle or a smiley. Much easier to read than the line tests. You can get 21 sticks and the monitor on Amazon for half price. Just in case you want to try it one month. Don't forget that a lot of women find it easier to test twice a day. Once in mid morning and once in the afternoon because a lot of times, your surge can be super short and you'll end up missing it if you only test once a day. Other women have long surges and will get a positive over several days. Best of luck this month!!
