Finally got a +opk tonight!!! Day 17 today. Crazy for me!! I just feel so relieved that I finally got it. I can't imagine what its like to O on day 45! I will continue to temp to confirm O (hopefully it will be tomorrow) then finally start my progesterone supplements in a few days. It's so crazy that I'm supposed to start them tomorrow. If I wouldn't have been tracking I would have had seriously compromised our chances this month! DH is gone right now, don't know if we'll be able to BD tonight, but we will tomorrow night for sure!

I'm sorry AF showed today :( Its great that your lp is 14 days! 9 months would have been better, but its a start!!

We're once every couple weeks people, so TTC is tough. Please note that I would like it more...

I figured out my crazy temps. My brand new thermometer is dead already. It won't even cut on long enough to register. BUT I saw EWCM today, so hopefully that means I O soon.

I really wanted to track this month because of starting the progesterone supplements, but I I think I always tried to figure out O in the past because if we TTC with our regular DTD schedule we'd never get pregnant!!!

Today is the third day in a row I've gotten a +opk. My temp went up a little this morning but not a huge jump. Guess we'll just keep BD'ing. I'm BD'd out this cycle!

That really stinks about the new thermometer! Ewcm is a great sign, though!

Yay!!! Temp jump this morning! FF actually gave me crosshairs this morning and I wasn't expecting that. FF says I O'd on Thursday CD17. Now I have another question, I took an opk that day at about 2:00/2:30 pm and it was negative. I knew it was getting close so I took another one at 5:30/6:00 pm and it was positive, so it was likely the beginning of my surge. Is it possible that I still ovulated that day? I still got +opks the following two days (digitals). I'm not worrying about it too much, I'm just glad I finally O'd! I'm just more curious than anything. I'll probably wait to start the progesterone until tomorrow.

OPKs were never very reliable for me (if I remember right) but my temp was always very telling...can you post a link to your chart?

After my temp this morning FF changed O to Friday, which is what I thought all along. I feel more comfortable that its right now, so I started the progesterone tonight. I surprisingly feel pretty relaxed yet, despite the weirdness of this cycle. I'll try to attach my chart. I'm on my phone, if it doesn't work ill do it again tomorrow when I'm on a computer.

I agree with Lora. I could never get anything with OPK's. I just temped except the cycle I actually got pregnant I stopped temping until the very end as I got frustrated with it so I am not sure even when I O'ed that cycle. But we BD'd every other day as my OBGYN suggested instead of every day like we were doing and obviously something worked.

Your chart looks great, Shawn! I'm so hopeful for you!!

AFM--We're all still sick. DS got a diagnosis of the crud and a double ear infection. I'm not too far behind him. But DH has been in a more amourous mood, so we'll see how this month plays out!

Thanks! I'm so glad I ended up charting this month. With O being cranky and showing up late this month I would have had no idea when to start the progesterone. Speaking off...I took my first one last night and 45 minutes later I was out like a light on the couch! It might just be a coincidence. Guess I'll see what happens tonight.

I'm sorry you're all still sick!!! My goodness you've had a terrible time kicking the sickness out of your house! Hope DS is feeling better soon. And I'm glad DH is coming around a little bit :)
