    Question Decided to start trying....

    Hi Ladies, I am an old member here but couldnt figure out my username and password cos i am a duffer haha. I have an almost 3 year old DD and a 7 year old DSS. Me and my partner have decided its time to try for a baby of our own. I am super duper excited about this but seeing as both of our kids were "surprises" Im not entirely sure what I am doing.

    I have been to the dr to have bloodtests to check i am not diseased lol and he mentioned times when i should get busy.

    The first day of my last AF was the 27/12 I am currently having some nice Ovulation symptoms ( I always get cramps and sore boobs and a bit grumpy) I also have what i think is EWCM (been doing a little reading lol), but would it not be too early for me to be ovulating yet? I have no idea...

    could anyone shed some light on this puzzling topic?

    thanks in advance!

    No, it wouldn't be too early for you to o (ovulate) yet. I got my last af on the 25th of December and will probably o tomorrow or monday. I get o pains before I actually o.

    I'm on day 12 of my cycle, so that means you'd be on day 10. How long are you cycles usually? Mine vary from 25-29 days so probably o between day 10 - 14. Day 10 is definitely not too early.

    I don't usually have much o pain (some twinges and very light cramps) but it is usually spread over 3-4 days as well as ewcm...I've read you o on the last day you see ewcm.

    You won't really know exactly when you o unless you do temping/charting.

    Maybe your partner will be feeling a bit better tomorrow morning?

    Even with charting and temping you still cant pinpoint O. Usually down the the 24/36hrs but never down to the 2-3 hours lol.

    If your happy to just play it by symptoms, BD when ever you can. Obviously his illness cant be helped.

    Personally. My symtpoms werent acurate. I had 7 day build up of cramps, sore boobs, grumps, back pain etc .. I was using OPK's had my strong positive and then continued having sore boobs for 4 days later!

    Try a few times and time your cycles (on your phone?)

    Good luck!

    We'll probably be due for af (or testing) around the same time! I'm about 2dpo now.
