Yep. I think it's a good plan - just hard to execute
We're just doing every 2nd day from after AF to BFP this cycle. So far so good.
So far we've tried:
Cycle 1: dtd whenever, no charting
Cycle 2: dtd whenever, added charting, got sick right around o, so missed it
Cycle 3: Charting & OPKs, dtd every 3 days until +ve OPK, then day of +ve OPK & again 2 days after.
Cycle 4: Charting only. dtd whenever, which ended up being 4 days before predicted o, then day before o, day of o & 3 days after o (this wasn't a conscious decision, I was just feeling "over it" & got sick of dtd for "no reason" - figured I couldn't get disappointed if we only dtd a few times & it didn't work. I was wrong & balled my eyes out as usual when AF arrived).
Cycle 5: Another half-hearted attempt, charting, dtd whenever, which ended up being 5 days before o, day before o & day after o.
Cycle 6: Charting, dtd cd7, 9, 13, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22 & 25 (o on cd20)
Cycle 7: Charting, dtd cd7, 14, 20, 21 & 23 (o on cd21)
Cycle 8: Charting, dtd cd6, 9, 15, 19, 21, 23, 27 (o on cd18 - it was a weird cycle)
Cycle 9 (this cycle): Charting, bd cd8, 10, 12, 14 (so far), 16 (later today ), then will bd cd18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34. Hoping for o on cd18-21, which would make AF due cd34-37, i.e. I'll get my BFP between 29 August & 1 September! - positive thoughts!!!
If this cycle doesn't work, I'm going to take a break from charting.
