Just started testing my LH this morning (on Day 6). I hope that tells me if I am ovulating and when.

Wishing you lots of luck with the OPK's. They will help you know when you are about to O. Just remember that an OPK can tell you that you have a surge of LH that stimulates ovulation but it doesn't mean that you will ovulate. Most of the time you will but sometimes our bodies do weird things and we don't. Temping is the only way to know for sure that ovulation occurred,

Thank you Vicki. It is good to know that I may not ovulate even if I get a smiley face.

Thanks, but unfortunately that knowledge comes from too many months of experience.

Geeze. TTC is getting more and more complicated!

I just received an email from my Dr (after emailing her a few questions). She told me she would like to see me on CD3. What do you think that is for? You suggested 8 days after O.

That's a good thing. CD 3 testing is a baseline test of different hormones. I found a site with a little info about the testing

You can ask if she will do the 7 dpo progesterone test too. I know it seems a little overwhelming but you are taking the right steps to get that little miracle. Wishing
