O'ing this week!!
29
Mon, 07-04-2011 - 11:39pm

I'm trying to temp this month and so far, I'm not off to a good start... I keep forgetting to do it. I done it saturday and it was 36.51c, this morning it was 36.23c. right now this doesn't make much sense to me but I'll try and see it through for the whole month and then decide what I think of it. I've been drinking my green tea daily in place of my morning coffee. Fingers crossed!!!!

I should O this week, too...but it will probably be Friday or Saturday. I get up too often in the night to use the bathroom (always have), so I haven't even attempted temping. I'm just using OPKs. Fingers crossed this is our lucky month!!

Looks like we have a nice group going! What's everyone doing to detect O? I'm temping and using OPKs. And what do you guys plan to do as far as BD timing? We did it 3 days before O, day before O, and (assuming I actually O today) I'm going to try to see if DH is up for one more romp tonight.

I'm hoping to O this week too. Today my opk is still neg but looks like it's starting a slow fade-in pattern....hopefully by Friday I'll finally O (I'm on CD24 now...)! I'm trying to get in EOD Bding this week, but DH just started a new job/just moved...you know....life is pretty much chaos right now.

Yay...I like waiting in groups! :)

I am just using OPKs, watching CM, and listening to my body...usually I'll start getting achy before and when I O.

Right now the plan is to just BD when we can around my fertile time. In the past months, we have tried everyday, every other day, every way you can think of and haven't gotten it right yet, so just going for it is my plan. :)

What a fab 'lil O posse!!!

Good luck with the temping -it can take a while to get the hang of it. In the beginning, I would get anxious & dream about it or keep waking up ready to temp but now it's become 2nd nature. Almost addictive! I didn't temp when I went away for the w/e & was so bummed looking at my incomplete chart! Don't worry about the #s not making sense right now -individual temps don't really matter, it's the pattern that's important

Suz, I think "just going for it" is as good a plan as any!!! We've had "perfect" timing for months & nothing to show for it

Good luck ladies!!

Sydney- Oing a little later isn't always a bad thing, with my DS, I Oed on CD29 and that's the month I got my BFP.

Amy- I agree with Angela, Temping does take a while to get used to. I used to wake up early or not be able to sleep because of temping. Or I would snooze my alarm and forget to temp. But now that I've been doing it for so long, it's second nature. I even used temping to avoid getting pregnant the last 15 months! Having done it for so long is making TTC easier for me this time around. I've never used the $ store OPKs, but if you like them, let me know so I can save some moolah!

Suz- I wish I could be as relaxed as you. I really don't need OPKs or even temping at this point to know when I'm Oing either, but I have a curious (read obsessive) nature and I need to be 1,000% sure. LOL.

Ha! Well, I don't know if I'd say "relaxed." :) I totally understand obsessive - I am using 2 kinds of OPKs - digitals and internet cheapies! Why? Because I was faithful to digitals at first, and thought they were 100% right. Then, one month, I decided to use the first response ones with the lines...I couldn't make sense of them and the line was dark for longer than I had ever had with the digitals. SO, I am running an experiment this month to see how the 2 match up, or if the don't match up, or whatever. So, yeah. ;) Any my "just going for it" with the BDing is more like "just WTH ever at this point!" LOL :D
