I talked to DH about it this morning (after I had taken another HPT) - about how long eggs and spermies last - I think he found it enlightening (at least he didn't fall asleep haha), and it seems to turn on a lightbulb for him in the sense that - no - it's not an easy thing to become pregnant......if it happens when you're not trying its just luck.
Next month we'll turn it up a notch, and try to bd every second day over fertile window and after surge (I think I'm like you Funchu with a short surge - last cycle the test on O day wasn't quite pos - I assumed that it had happened earlier or even overnight as Calstar had predicted).
This cycle on CD12 I'll test morning, noon, and night - seems to be my day! But now that I've said that it probably won't be haha.
Will also try to take temps more consistently - not sure how that's going to work out - when I wake up, I wake up! It's just that DH has been working really early lately, and we have such a small house that I can't help but hear him knocking around - he tries to be quiet but with our bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen right beside one another.......
Plus he doesn't close the door to the bedroom as our kitties would be locked out - kitties over temps anyway!!!
I think I need a new bbt thermometer - recs??? Mine was just a cheapie off eBay, I want one that's back lit so I can see it in the morning...
12dpo and I didn't test this morning. I don't want to waste my frer tests if they will be negative...
My temp is back up again today. I don't know what to think anymore.
