    Thanks X
    I feel better than yesterday surprisingly, I think I've just given up stressing about it today lol. I kind of get the feeling the universe is going to arrange it somehow so it happens when I least expect it!

    Despite my initial disappointment on waking, I'm walking around happy as can be this morning because I just got definite confirmation of the sex of our ducks - 3 females and 1 male, the exact ratio we were hoping for! Apparently it's the small things that can make me happy LOL.

    @HillDweller I'm trying the saliva testing this month and am a little confused, yesterday showed a little ferning but none today, not sure if its cause of the amount of saliva I put on there if Im doing something wrong, I'm at CD13 and FF has me at pre-fertile

    It's tricky Nic, I've had full ferning then no ferning, sometimes no ferning in the morning but full ferning at night after partial fern the night before etc. sometimes it's the amount of saliva you use too - too much or too little is no good. I've had some months where I got full ferning the day before O and some (like this month) where I had 4 days of full ferning, then it went back to partial and it looks like I still haven't O'd!

    Now I just assume anytime I start to see a good amount of ferning it must mean my estrogen levels are up and O must be coming sometime soon!

    I had another show no ferning today but there also was very little saliva, I might start checking it at night too, According to FF I'm due to O this week, just hope it's while DP is home, he came home yesterday and goes away again Wed till Friday which makes it hard. Im seriously tempted to stop looking at FF and the saliva tests just to see if it's making me stress about it and stopping it from happening.

    @NicM I know what you mean, I'm not sure whether all the testing makes me more or less stressed! Especially the ones that are ambiguous (and that's OPK's and saliva for me!)

    I really hope it happens for you when your DH is home - I know how stressful that is, and I think it's usually what prevents me from O'ing. I put so much pressure on myself that it has to happen within a certain window that the stress over rides it all!

    AFM - still no temp rise, so still no O. Still getting EWCM though, I've had 6 days of it so far! I'm thinking maybe my body geared up to O, didn't, and now it's gearing up again? On the plus side, DH comes home tomorrow morning....so if I don't O today, maybe there's a chance this month that I thought we wouldn't get..

    Thanks Nic Not that I'll be getting my hopes up, but it would be quite funny if I'd spent all this week panicking and getting upset about O not happening because it was messing up my chances for next month....and then it happened at the right time this month unexpectedly

    Hey NickM and Hilldweller, your discussions about the saliva testing were really good. I never learnt how to use it so that one I bought last year is now still brand new. Anyways, all the best to you Hilldweller with this month's timing!

    @HillDweller, yes it would be I still have no ferning but my cervix has dropped (only know cause DTD is getting painful) and I have been getting some 'O pains, from both sides this cycle, usually its only the right.
    @anewmin I've only had mine a week, still trying to figure it out
