how often?

Hey ladies! I finally got a + on my OPK today (been checking since Sun-FF estimated my O-day as yesterday). DH and I have been MBB (making baby batter as he likes to call it!) Sun, Mon, Wed and today. Should we keep trying? TMI- but we are a little worn out!! This is my first month charting so I don't know how to analyze the data. BBT showed a slight increase this am. Anyway, thought I would ask "the experts"! :-)

My understanding is that it is more important to BD BEFORE the OPK+ than after (sounds like you have that covered). But, if you really want to cover all the bases, I would also try Sunday (assuming you tried today, Friday, right?). But honestly, I think you are already covered and if you are tired, may be best to knock it off. I was tired like that last month since I think we BD'd 5 days in a row which is a record for us older folks ( I am 41 1/2 and DH is 51)...but it may have worked since I got BFP today (waiting for blood test to confirm)...

Hi. I see you use FertilityFriend. One thing that is cool is to go into the chart gallery. You can put in things to search by like women your age and with similar BD patterns... and you can tell it to show you only pregnancy resulting charts or all etc.. it's pretty cool and will give you a great idea of the patterns of BD that resulted in pregnancy.

LOL at the baby making batter! I'll have to tell Mike that one. hehe

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

How often depend. Are there any known male factor issues? If not you can do it daily or more if you have the energy and time.

Best wishes,
