    Track your temperature that is the sure way to pin point the day you ovulate. It just doesn't help if you are trying to gear up for ovulation.

    It's way, way, way too early for symptoms. As pp said, trying every second day means you've got it covered. It can take a few goes so try not to get your hopes up right away.

    Good luck.

    Well it's 4 days before my period and I have light brown cm. I just don't know. I know people that only took one cycle! I'm trying to do everything right. The brown cm has to be period what else? I don't think implantation bleeding. I have had lower back ache and cramping for 2 weeks! Pretty bummed if period 😒

    If you have a textbook cycle Dec 11 sounds about right for o.

    Opks sometimes worked for me but didn't the month I conceived my ds. So I don't like using them anymore. I love temping.

    Brown cm could be the start of af but not necessarily. Unfortunately ttc can take some time...I wish anyone who wanted to could concieve first go! Good luck!

    Please try not to read too much into 'symptoms'. When I was trying to conceive my daughter, j had symptoms the first month and AF arrived right on time. The next month, a different set of symptoms and AF arrived. This happened was every month, and every month I was convinced I was pregnant. The month I actually fell pregnant, I was so sure that AF was on the way, and I got my BFP. It took me 9 cycles to conceive her

    It's not that you haven't got your ovulation right, it's that there's only about a 25% chance of conception each month, even in a best case scenario where you've got good eggs good sperm and good timing.

    If you and your sister are in your early-mid 20s then it'll probably happen pretty fast but if not that's ok too it just might take a few months.

    Try not to stress Hun, this is coming from the QUEEN of symptom spotting!!! It will happen when you least expect it, I know it's hard but try not to think too much about it. I feel so much better that I'm not overthinking about it. Everyone has different outcomes. This is my 3rd month. Our time will come very soon ☺️☺️☺️

    Not everyone is lucky enough to fall pregnant first cycle. Seriously, try to relax about it (easy for me to say, and I never relaxed either). I was the biggest stress head and symptom spotter. DD was conceived while we were away on holiday and just enjoying ourselves, without any thought of ttc
