Ow!!! I forgot that the pain of running a half marathon is nothing compared to the pain you feel the next day. Ow!!!
Morning all Only CD4 for me and AF is buggering off already, which is highly unusual. Must be because it's been such a horrid period, it must have been all condensed in to pretty much 2-3 days, if that makes any sense? Another week before I start the OPKs, and Uni means that I won't be on much. Hope to see loads of BFPs when I do pop back in.
Hope everyone is having a good week, hi to all who follow

you ran a half marathon during AF?! that would be grounds to cry off in my book!! horray for an end to AF though. good luck at uni this week.
cd16 for me. saw a tiny bit of ewcm on Friday but not taking any chances and will keep dtd for the next few days. my cycles are irregular and 35 days is not uncommon. just realised yesterday that OH's b'day is cd31 this month. wouldn't + news be a nice b'day present?
happy Monday everyone - hope it's sunny where you are.

Well done on the half marathon Saffron! Really excited for you to start TTC again!
Veecee - That would be an awesome present! FX for you.
CD14 for me. I couldn't take my temperature yesterday morning (night out, lots of alcohol, hotel room with friends!) so not sure whether it would have dropped back down (after spiking up on Saturday). Its still semi-elevated today so I think if it is around the same again tomorrow FF might give me ovulation cross-hairs (for ovulation on Friday, as it dropped a little before going up on Saturday). I'm not convinced though - still no positive on IC OPKs and no EWCM (or sore boobs which I always get before / during / last cycle after too!). DTD everyday and will do for the next few days anyway so FX.
Here is my chart;

At work so will come back for personals later. Just wanted to day hello!
CD10 for me - last month ov was cd15, so will wait a few more days to start opks.
Feeling grumpy though - dark foggy Monday mornings are not nice!

Saffron, well done on doing the half marathon. I hope Uni is going well for you.
Veecee, fingers crossed you’ve caught ov and can give your H that b’day present!
Pepperoni, that does look like quite a rise on your chart so that maybe ov, strange about no positive opk though. Its only CD14 for you though, maybe it’s still to come?
Lola, hope your Monday improves!
AFM, CD18 and still no ov!! Still using the CBFM and getting highs. I checked my temp this morning just to see if it was working and I got a definite pre Ov temp. I’m thinking maybe my cycles have decided to become longer! This would explain why I was 3 days late last month though!

Dolly - I really do think it is still to come! I *always* (OK, two cycles now, lol!) get a positive on CBD advanced OPKs 3-4 days before the IC OPKs so I think I should get a positive on them today / tomorrow (hopefully). I'm noticing my CM changing as well so really think I'm gearing up now rather than having already ovulated. Agree the temps alone look like they are saying different though!
Hope your monitor goes to a peak soon for you. Are you using anything alongside the monitor? I've read online (when researching to buy this myself) that first cycle the monitor is still getting to know you, and its not uncommon to not 'peak' in the first cycle whilst it does this. Plenty of people have still been successful whilst their monitors just shown 'high' though so FX and keep DTD! :-)

Just popping on before head to gym will be back later
CD 3 for me, seem to be having a lighter af than usual

Probably too late for personals but not much new for me. It's CD 12 for me. A negative on my opk but, like you Lola, the last 2 cycles I've ovulated on CD 15 so I'm thinking Thursday might be the day so dtd every other day until then. This week is the crazy week as I ramp up my boy sway diet. I'm not usually a big fan of beef (it contains a lot of testosterone) but it's been interesting trying to create a week's worth of meals with virtually the same meals. Certainly keeps me on my toes & I'm not sure if the woman in budgens believed me when I said I needed my 10 lemons to have a lemon a day with hot water to have a healthy start to the day (I'm glad I did the scanner checkout at waitrose for my main shop as who normally buys 7 cartons of V8!!!). Good luck to all x
