chart and opk help
Mon, 03-01-2010 - 11:03am

Hi guys,

I worked on cd 12, this cycle, not able to do an opk. On cd 13, I felt REALLY fertile, so I did an opk at 0900, after being awake for an hour, drinking 32 oz of water, and holding my pee for like, 15 minutes. It was stark positive. I feel like it probably would have been positive on cd 12, had

It's so hard to tell b/c signs could really point to both!! I hate to say it, b/c I would love for you to be 2 days further into your 2ww, but I think cd 15 is a better O date... if the drop on cd 14 weren't so drastic, maybe cd 13, but.... and based on your previous charts, you always have a very dramatic rise with O and the cd 14 rise is just not as huge as the cd 16... not to mention, you're usually a little bit of a later o-er, so to drop to cd 13 is a pretty big hop in o dates...

with that said, i'm no expert on this stuff and i think we really have to listen to our inner voice... so if you feel you o'd on cd 13, you're probably right :o) either way, your bd timing was great!!!

hoping you get a bfp and the o date doesn't even matter!!!!

Haha, you ladies are right, of course. Once you start speculating and changing things about, it gets too confusing. CD 15 it is. Which makes me 7 dpo today. I cramped like crazy yesterday, but nothing today, and my temp's up a smidge....

I vote for CD15, too. I was going to add that even if you had done an opk on CD12 and it was positive, that doesn't mean you have to O the next day. I've had this the last 2 months and it's maddening. I had pos. opk's that I DID see, then a temp rise the next day......but it turned out I didn't O till one or two days later. Cycle before last I had 4 days, I think, of pos. opk's! I O'd at the END of it, of course.

As for the lack of is normal to O on the last day of fertile CM or the day AFTER, also.

Either way, you're good, but it's nice to I'm off to post about my wonky cycle. ; )
