I think I'll O overnight or tomorrow, yay! After bowing out last month due to hurting my back & not being physically able to DTD, I'm so super excited!! CD22, have managed to BD every other day, OPK flashing smiley today again. Can't wait to start my 2ww! Hopefully lots of us have a good month **fx to all** **lots & lots of baby dust all round!!** (sorry for all the joy, must be the hormones?!)
Thanks ladies DP is home and I'm feeling so much better .. its hard atm because we are living apart because of work and i only get to see him on his days offs so it's hard emotionally and of course adding Ttc on top of that makes its really hard... but only 2 more months till he moves in with me... so all i have to do is hang in till then.. The support on here really helps! ! So thanks again ladies!!
Waiting for a positive opk and it feels like it's never coming. Normally I would have a visible line by now (cd13) and I'd just be waiting for it to darken up after I get o pains. The last few days I have had a super light shadow line but it's not getting darker. So frustrating. Can't wait for my cycle to just return to normal again.

Curious who is tracking cycles, temping, opks? This is our first few weeks off the pill and just been dtd every second day but wondering if maybe using opks might be helpful?
At the moment, I like temping and OPKs at the same time to help me see a pattern and trust the results more.
Ive found the clear blue digital OPKs help give me the best indicator. No guessing or seeing lines that aren't there. It tells you where you're at with three basic outcomes (blank circle, flashing smiley or solid smiley). Simple & efficient (& better for my mental health!)
I'm a few cycles in to TTC, so much more aware of my own bodily indicators (like EWCM). I use the Ovia app to track data, but am now at the point where my symptoms are even more reliable than the apps algorithms!
Good luck to you! Don't drive yourself too crazy (though most of us do, at least early on!)!

@Me&Smooches I'm using a digital OPK this cycle, not worrying about temping... I used IC's last cycle & Oed a lot later than I thought so going to keep tracking for a while... I'm CD7 & will start tracking on day 11 as I didn't 'O' until CD18/19 last cycle so I'm going to hold off a little!
In saying that, if DH's sample comes back low (DS is IVF & DD is natural) we'll see our clinic in 8th August & use one of our embryos as soon as we can.
Have I missed anyone's dates? Let me know if I have!
