Welcome to the group! Congrats on starting to TTC, it's a very exciting time in your life. I will caution you that the apps only give you the days which most women ovulate. I am not the average woman and followed their recommendations for quite a few months before realizing that I ovulate later in my cycle than the average woman. The best ways that I've found to really track ovulation is by doing BBT's and or OPK's. Once you have the temp rise and know that your progesterone level is increasing, you know you've ovulated. It can be a little labor intensive though and you may not be the route you want to go. I wish you the best of luck in TTC and lots of baby dust your way. Feel free to join the Newbie buddy group down below. There's a wonderful group of women who can answer most any question you might have. Welcome to the group :)

Yay how wonderful!!! We just started too! The other poster is right, unless you know your exact cycle length, you usually get the 'normal' 28 day cycle. I like to do the range from a short cycle through a large cycle and try all throughout that period! That way if I'm somehow wrong, I'm still getting in days! So excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
