Hope you are all well
Haven't been on BH much since I got AF - I suppose I was a little down - to be expected I think but now AF has nearly left the building I'm getting excited about trying again and have promised myself I will not torture myself during the 2WW.
This is only our 2nd month of trying so not quite at the point where I feel we need to do temps etc but I was wondering about it all, as reading the thread a lot of you mention OPK's and temping can any one give me a quick low down on it all and how helpful it is to use these. At the moment I'm just going by my CM to gauge my most fertile period although it didn't work for us last month (think we DTD too late as was hoping to try for a boy this month we won't leave it so long and we'll get going when the CM kicks in) I'd like to know more as I think I'll start using these from month 4 of trying.
I found the link to the Cough medicine stuff very interesting and might try that next month.
MrsA - How confusing are you pregnant/ have you POAS again? sorry I can't offer any advice but maybe you are UTD
Lannie - welcome to April thread so sorry AF turned up - March was not a good month for us all
Jez - I feel for you honey and it's good to vent we're happy to listen and we all have days like that and it's good for the soul sometimes to feeling a little woe is me - I did on Saturday when AF came and I sent hubby out with the kids so I could have some "me time" and wallow in my our self pity - it worked and I felt better afterwards.
Not sure how much scans cost - but I'm sure medicare will cover some of the cost.
Hi slf2205 and welcome sorry to hear about your m/c and good luck for April.
Funky Mum - wow CD10 you must be getting close to O - does drinking water help CM - I'm really bad at drinking water and do you know if green tea is good for CM? Good luck catching the eggie
Sammy - hope you had a lovely morning sounds like fun
I'm on CD5 - our kids wonderful Godparents are having the kids this weekend Fri to Sunday woo hoo it's a shame I won't be "o-ing" but a little pre practice can't help and if I've calculated my dates right next week is the week.
Talk soon lovely ladies

LYP hunny, OPKS will show you your LH surge, put simply where your hormones are concerned. FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) is high from CD1 preparing your follies and getting them to grow, as one starts to become dominant anywhere over 17mm your LH (luetenising hormone) rises sharply and so does your estrogen level which tells your ovary to pop the egg out of the folli!! Once you detect your + opk ovulation will occur anywhere between 24-36 hours later and then the egg can live up to 24 hours without being fertilised. As the egg released the Folli in your ovary starts producing Progesterone to help build your lining for implantation!! So with OPKs and reading your bodys cervical position and Cervical mucus, if it is all working at the same time you will catch the eggy!!!
hope that all makes sense!!! im a bit of a hormone freak lol lol!!! good luck hun xoxox (I don't temp as I am up at all diff times with DS so its pointless) but with Clomid now I pretty much know when I will O I am just an OPK addict hahaha!!!
keeping hydrated is good for CM and just your all over health!! it's hard when you are not drinking for your opk though!! I go nuts after 2pm and get all my water in lol!!!
I am gunna do my opk a lil early coz I am dying of thirst!!!! hmm a diff brand this cycle shall be interesting!!!!

Funky - I think they both look negative hun, just diff brands and vary slightly..
23-03-2011 14:28 #130
Ky - I think they are negative, but shouldnt be too much longer. Do they both have the same sensitivity? I need to use ones that are less sensitive otherwise I get confused
