I decided it was time to take the next step in my TTC journey...I was lucky with my DD a few years ago, and it happened shortly after we started trying....and I actually got PG again in August of this year after a short time, but that sadly ended in a C/P. Since that occurred, the last few months didn't pan out as I hoped....So, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and proceed with the next steps on trying for our second.
It makes me a little nervous, though, as I wonder if I am doing it at the right time, it is reading me correctly, etc...as my CD1 was yesterday. I have to do some more research on how to read the temperature spikes and drops, but I'm just glad that I made this decision to start charting:)
I also think I'll start with OPKs, but my only question is they advise you to start using them around CD9 (which I think is fairly early for me from my CM that I check), but I was just wondering that when you get a positive on this, will it start showing you the positive a few days before ovulation (up until ovulation day), or it will only be positive on the actual day you ovulate, and the next day you test, it will be negative again?
Just wasn't 100% sure, and I apologize if this is repetitive...
You guys have always been great to my posts in the past, and I appreciate any and all feedback!
Also, Fertility Friend is a GREAT site for charting, and doing your temps will assure that you know whether you did for sure ovulate.
Awesome! Thanks! I feel so behind since I'm not a 'newbie', but I'm very new to this aspect of TTC:)
Great info, thank you! I started researching some info. on fertilityfriend, as well, as created a chart for myself with my first 2 days of temps:)
