Good luck for Thursday Jillybeanz, don't worry if you can't see much, sometimes you can just see the sac early on, or maybe the fetal pole but no heartbeat yet, the way your tests are getting darker is a good sign though xx
Faith I think I know too much now and some months it still doesn't help me figure out when ov was
I'd say it sounds like the clomid definitely does something for you Faith, last months progesterone level was great, they do say it has a cumulative effect as well so it might work better on month 2 and 3 even so fingers crossed this month you'll get that egg xx

CD 15 and still no wiser I've done 5 OPK's now one with yesterdays FMU, then one with midday, one at 4pm and one at 8pm and then one this morning with FMU and they all look the bl**dy same
Totally confused as after ov mine normally just got back to faint quite quickly but these all have half strength lines on them
Plus after checking CP and CM (TMI again ) my CP is high and soft but my cm was a mix of quite a lot of ewcm but some sticky white cm as well
and my temp was a bit low first thing but has suddenly gone up in the last hour. So I give up with the guessing what's going on.
I suppose I could have had my surge Sunday and ov'd yesterday
I certainly had enough pains, and left side ones as well which I almost never get
In which case the ewcm should definitely be gone by tomorrow.
Annoyingly BD last night didn't happen as the OH was tired and his arm had been hurting again, he also wasn't in the best of moods as he'd been putting up with an overseas customer he doesn't like and a delivery had turned up 5hrs late so even my powers of persuasion didn't help there
So if I did ov yesterday (Monday) then we've only BD once on Sunday so I'm not holding out any hope at all really I was a bit annoyed to be honest as I've only ever had left sided ov type pains about 3 or 4 times while trying (although some months I get none so I could be ov'ing either side then ) but it makes me feel a bit better thinking I could be ov'ing on the side with a tube and then we 'waste' the opportunity
But I've learnt with my OH that any sort of pressure around ov time just really puts him off
I'm just a bit confused by the lines on these OPK's as they really are still very strong compared to my normal post ov ones and are all pretty much identical instead of fading Just seems a bit weird
Hopefully I should have more idea tomorrow either from cm or maybe the opk will be much fainter
I saw those digi ones in Boots when I got mine Faith couldn't believe the price over £40 for 20 Even the cbfm sticks don't cost that, although you do have to get the machine and you can only test once a day with that, but still I couldn't use those because I test too much around ov time, I'd probably use a box a month xxx
Oh I saw some new fertility lubricant as well ladies, it's a spray that claims it contains something that makes sperm more motile
Not sure how it would work, it said to spray the entrance to downstairs just before BD but then how would the lubricant get to where the sperm do
It's called Balance Active fertility spray if any of you want to have a look at it though

Hi Ladies, well it sounds like everybody is busy- Faith i see you have dropped to 25mg clomid this month good luck!! I have had to postpone my Clomid this month as my MRI is today for the prolactin issues. At least we will get to the bottom of why it is so raised!!
DL05 you are so full of information which is great...My cycle was very strange this month, AF came 2 days early and lasted only 3 days so I am all over the place as to when I am fertile etc. So I will start testing and chance my arm. Cant wait for next period as I can start clomid 25mg on day 5 yay
Baby dust to all, Dr P does seem to have good success rates I hope his good work - works on me!!!
Good luck all

Ladycake I'd just presume this cycle will be normal when it comes to ov testing, anyone can have a one off random long or short cycle and generally your cycle will go back to what's normal for you the month after
It might even have been the clomid making you ov earlier if you took that last month
Good Luck with the MRI xx
Well I did another OPK at 2pm and still exactly the same as this morning
I really do give up now
I've still got one left for in the morning but if that's the same I'm not getting any more because I sort of feel like I probably missed my surge on Sunday which would be early compared to last month but about right compared to my other cycles recently so I'll just wait and see what my temps do Might try and pounce on the OH later just in case ov was late on yesterday although the chances of catching an egg from yesterday are minimal now but it can't hurt to try
have a great evening ladies

How are you all? Well i hope.
I have have now got the hang of those opk results. I thought i may have ov-ed early this cycle due to taking soy and miss reading the opk results. But i stuck with them testing only daily though but today cd17 i got a proper positive the test strips were both equally dark. So the good news is i have been busy enough and will be for a day or so to give us the best chance. To be honest i dont expect miracles so soon, but i would be disappointed if we didn't try . OMG i am obsessed already what will i be like in a few months? I keep telling myself i should give myself till March, but the truth is if i am not pregnant by then i will be devastated anyway i will have to deal with that if it is what happens.
Much baby dust to us all xx

Lisa I was exactly the same Good luck for this cycle xx
Well still having OPK issues myself This mornings was yet again exactly the same as every other one for the past 2 days, still no temp rise and still got a mixture of very stretchy ewcm (sorry for the TMI) and some white cm
So now despite Mondays pains I doubt I ov'd then as my temp would have risen by now and I wouldn't be getting ewcm still
As I'm still not sure what's happening I am going to get more OPK's today as I do like to know when I've ov'd just so I don't get excited thinking AF is late if for nothing else .
Still no BD since Sunday so if I didn't ov Monday and it happens in the next few days I think I can safely say we'll have missed any opportunity this cycle anyway
It's just very weird how exactly the same they all are I've never had so many the same in a row as once the lines get to the strength these are I normally get my positive one a few hours later

It's all relative to you Faith, my pre ov temps is typically 98.4F but I have a higher than average temp and can't use the charts on fertility friend etc. as they don't go up to my post ov temps
Don't worry about too high or too low, all you're looking for is a change after ov, which can be anything from .3-4 of a degree up to a full degree or more, mines typically 99.2F after ov so mine goes up by about .8 on average. Once you've had a positive ov test it can take a day or two to rise so don't worry if it doesn't happen right away.
I started with the temping before my op because I wanted to make sure I was ovulating and also to find out when I was ovulating as I had 30/31 day cycles so I knew it probably wasn't the quoted typical cd 14 and sure enough it was either cd16 or 17 back then and between the OPK's and knowing when I got my surge and the temp rises I could pin ov down to pretty much the day
It's not the best for prior planning but I found it reassuring to know when AF was due and to know I had definitely ov'd. If you're taking the clomid you might see some extra low temps while you're on it because it increases oestrogen which keeps your temp low before ov and you might get a bigger rise after as well if you release more than one egg and have extra progesterone, I had some sky high post ov temps on soy, 99.9F or even just over a 100 a few times Good luck xx
Hiya Mand how are you getting on, not long to go now Hope you're not feeling it too much with looking after little Mia as well
I don't even know if there's been an egg yet Mand xx
Well the obsessive ov testing continues I did another about 12 and it had a stronger line on it, not much lighter than the control but still a bit narrow, so I thought yayyy finally about to get my surge, managed to hold off testing again to 4pm even though I was tempted because I was getting right sided ovary twinges and the bl**dy lines back to how it was this morning if not a little bit fainter, starting to wonder if my stupid body knows what it's doing this month or if I keep almost getting my surge and then it backs off again for some reason
As I've had clear cm since cd8(last Tuesday) and ewcm since Saturday cd12 (and TMI my OH got very frisky then which is normally a sure fire sign ov is imminent )and in the past if I've ov'd late then all the other signs of ov are late too, so I've never had all this for so many days beforehand
It is driving me slightly nuts now, but if I do ov late as long as it's over the weekend I don't mind because that gets my cycle back on schedule as I've ov'd on the weekend every month apart from last month for over a year now and it's much better timing for us So there is a silver lining, plus I know from past experience the more wound up you get about ov not happening the less likely it is to happen
