Hiya,I'm not in my tww just yet,but will be soon.maybe you could clear something up for me?
see I am really confused as I keep getting different dates of when I am ovulating(my ticker says one thing and other ovulation calendars say another!
since coming off the pill,my periods have been irregular but not too much,first 2 were 6 days late,3rd was 2 days and my last was only one day,so am thinking that if I was to have one next month it may be on time (my usual cycle is 28 days),so would this mean that I will ovulate tomorrow?

hi squibby, im not too sure to be honest? everything ive read says roughly 12 - 16 days before your next af is due is when you ovulate, but ive been checking my cm and cp and i ovulate a few days earlier? my cycle is also approx 28 days, sometimes 26? the last time i got pregnant i only had sex once a few days after af and got a bfp!! its really confusing but i think if you keep checking yourself and recording it you will get to know your own body. sorry ive not been much help? xxx

Don't worry,you've been really helpful.think I am just going to try it the way I have been this time and if it works,then great.if not,there is always next month.it's only my first month of trying anyway.
Could you just tell me though,what exactly am I meant to be looking for when checking CP?just not overly sure what it feels like,could be finding the wrong thing!
I really hope you are preg,it sounds very promising xxx

sorry for the delay squibby, my pc keeps crashing!! if you insert your clean fingers gently up until you feel a sort of bump which feels seperate from your vagina walls, thats what youre looking for, sorry for sounding too graphic thats your cervix, after youve been feeling for a few days you will get to know whether its low or high. while youre there you can collect your mucous by scooping around the cervix (bumpy bit) gently to see what consistency it is and that can also give you a good idea of if youre ovulating or not. it took me a while to get used to it but i find it very helpful, hope you do too. good luck xxx

I am also in the tww....it's that part of the month that passes so slowly. After having tried unsuccesfully for 3 months, I decided to use the OPK. Unfortunately, DH was away the day I got a positive. The earliest I oculd BD was next day. Although I know that my chance of conceiving are weaker this month, I am just being over-optimistic. Maybe one of the sperms did the trick
