How was everyone's weekend?! I hope better than mine!!
I have a feeling I ovulated over the weekend, in which case I would have totally missed the boat. We had a pretty crappy couple of days (dh in a car accident - he is ok, but it was stressful, I had food poisoning, ds had a problem with his eye which resulted in a late night hospital trip...). We just didn't have the time to do the deed!! We did on Friday, so there is still a chance... but I don't have a good feeling about it

@princessleah Awww *hugs* I understand how you feel everything has been going wrong in November. Found out I was pregnant then lost thr baby after our first ultrasound Then spent 5 hours waiting in emergency to see if I did infact loose bubs to be told I did and kicked out then our 11week old puppy broke his leg when I got home while we were playing with him which cost nearly $800 at the emergency vet.
Poor dp had to go to work at 3am which ment no sleep and he's a truck driver. Was such day and month. Hope you didn't miss your window and still have get your bfp and things start looking up.

Hi we have just started trying. Well af has just finished so we are all set to go.
Based on cycles in the past i will be testing 14th december. If i last that long anyway as im a poas addict and read too much into every single sign my body does.
We will be using opks which with my last daughter was very successful in falling within the first couple months.
Looking forward to going on this fun journey with u all and hopefully we all get the bfp for xmas
I dunno why but I just don't think I'm going to get AF this month... :-( which will ruin everything... Usually I have cramps etc by now...
I hate this...
Quick question... Does an unusually long AF push out my O day? I'm normally spotting at day 7, but this time it took a while for it to get started and it feels like I'm only half way through. :-(
Does everyone count day one as the first sign of spotting or the first day you need a tampon/pad? I've been counting the later one...

I can't answer that generally for a normal person...ie 28 day cycle regularly.
But for me, the length of my af determines when my next one comes...so i assume for me it would affect o.
My af is due exactally 28 days from when she finishes...so a 3 day af means a 31 day cycle. 10 day af means 38 day cycle! Etc I'm expecting 33 days this time. My last af went for 5 days.. I ovulated cd 17 am expecting a 16 day lp. May test early at 14dpo.
Cervical Fluid - look for slippery, clear, stretchy and wet - TMI I know, but it's very educating!
Even though I have a normal 28 day cycle I don't necessarily ovulate on day 14, which is apparently a bit of a myth created by someone who just assumed that the average persons cycle is 28 days and therefore guestimated the 14 days! It's apparently been imbedded into us all over many years of learning about fertility, and it turns out it's not always accurate.
So the best way to find out when you're ovulating is chart, chart and chart - it seems a bit daunting (as I'm only just starting this myself), but no doubt I'll get the hang of it and in no time it'll just be something I happen to do every day.
I hope this helps :-)
