So this is our 3rd month ttc, I have been just using the calendar to guess when my fertile time is since I am pretty regular usually. I have been reading tammy's cervical position lessons and decided I needed better proof of ovulation. So yesterday I checked and imagine my surprise at CD 9 that my cervix was high and very soft. How long after this change in cervical position does ovulation usuallly occur? I am thinking maybe my calender has been wrong I am acutally o'ing earlier then I thought. CD9 just seems early and I wasn't expecting it so soon. Got in some good BDing though and plan on everyday till things change again. Here's to hoping.

Feeling lucky this month. I stopped taking my BC pills on my birthday in December, and if all works as planned Due date calenders estimate due date on my Birthday in December!

I am on CD 9 too. I've been peeing on OPKs twice daily since CD 7 and no smiley face yet. My CP feels low and closed but kinda soft (still new to that too), and I haven't had hardly any CM. Sorry don't know the answer to how long after CP change you should Ov. I think the phone app calendar I use is wrong, it says I will O tomorrow but looking back at my notes I have O pain on CD 11 usually. Keep BDing, girl. I will be too.

Lot's of EWCM today and cervix is still soft and high. Can't wait for DH to get home. Haven't had clear signs of O like this since I stopped BC pills in December. Very optomistic!

Good luck! I hope you get your wish. Baby could have same birthday as you, how cool. How is it having a December/close to christmas birthday? I almost didn't want to TTC this cycle cause I wonder if it's a pain to get Christmas and birthday gifts all in one month, then wait all year for it again! LOL. I like my June birthday, get presents every 6 months!

I'm not sure about cp & ovulation timing but I definitely recommend opks. According to my phone app I should have O'd on Tuesday but I really O'd on Thursday. If I had gone by my phone app & stopped bd'ing on Tuesday I would have totally lowered our chances. Also if I didnt test 2x per day with the opk I wouldn't have gotten my + either.

If I was placing orders a December baby wouldn't be my first choice but I don't care anymore. If we get one I think I'd celebrate a half b-day for them so they can have their own special party with their friends & then celebrate their real Bday with family :)

Time to get bd'ing ladies!! Don't let that ewcm go to waste ;) Good luck!

It is not too bad. My grandmother's birthday is the day after mom and she made sure my mom and family always made the day special just for me. Birthday presents were always wrapped in birthday paper, things like that. Friends on the other hand were sometimes not as thoughtful. and attendance at my birthday parties were always a little low because of vacation. But it is my special day and makes that time of year all the more special.

Ang - never thought of a "half birthday" - that's a cute idea. I too was leary about a b'day so close to Xmas, but after 5 cycles of nothin - I'll take anything!!! Thanks for the great idea. Makes it all that much better WHEN I get my BFP!!!

With all this positive energy getting thrown at the universe how can the universe possibly say no!!! Plus I'm sure there's gotta be some quota of monthly bfps & theoretically speaking *if* a bunch of ladies decided to take the month off then you'd think our chances should skyrocket!!! Lol! I hope the universe agrees with my wacky logic because I'd love to celebrate "half" birthdays with all you lovely ladies for years to come :)
