I bought myself a pack of stuff off eBay this morning: a bbt thermometer, 50 opk and 20 pg sticks so I'm interested in the ins and outs of taking your temp!
I have not tried OPK's yet, i think if we are unsuccessful this month i will buy some for next time.
Is there a particular brand i should be trying? I've been looking on ebay and there are so many different options.

Im wondering if the dip in my temp has anything to do with the fact, that we have had the aircon on the last two nights as its been really hot here.
This morning i took my temp and it was even lower 36.10c, i turned the aircon off any stayed in bed for another 20 mins and took my temp again and it was 36.21c.
Or is it possible i ovulated early or am going to ovulate late.?
I ended up ordering some opk's from ebay last night, so will try them for next month if we aren't successful this time.
Curlybird- I have a dip about 2 days before O so could be your body given you a heads up or you could be Oing a day or 2 early. Only way to tell for sure id wait for temp to go back up.
I'm usually the one having a bit of a freak out at the idea of another baby. I have three already from my first marriage (DH has none) so I kinda know what I'm in for & that scares me a little - although I obviously also know it worth all the effort! DH is the one who always focuses on the bright side but since I mentioned that I didn't think working 50-60 hrs a week for no pay was reasonable he's gone funny & says we're not in a position to have a baby. I guess I'm frustrated that he's choosing his job & long term financial gain it might bring over our chance to have a family. The old "no one on their death bed wishes they'd spent more time at the office" doesn't seem to resonate with him.
I just bought a opk kit from the chemist as i thought i might as well since i'm due to ovulate and nothing has come up, even the control line hasn't shown up.
@Legeyt that sucks. So is ttc off the table now or just something he's talking about. I totally agree with the statement that no one ever regrets the children they have, only the ones they don't. Is there any way he can change his situation so he works 50-60 hours a week FOR money?
@curlybird that's weird, all mine have always shown up with a control and a very faint test line when neg, and the line gets darker when O time. And they're just rubbish internet cheapies. You may have a dud
As for me, I took a test, negative on a stupid internet cheapie as that's all I had. I still feel nauseous. I hate my body, it's totally trolling me. Tomorrow is day 45 of this cycle!! I'm going to buy a FRER tomorrow to use on fmu Wednesday if AF still hasn't arrived, but this late and negative tests, I think it might be time to count myself officially out
