Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I stopped BC July 25th had my withdrawal bleed then my first real period was cd 27 the next was day 26.. I've decided to try use ovulation tests. I had taken one on 26th and 27 this month, there was a line but not dark. I took one again on the 28th and the line was darker, I took another one the same day and it was still dark but not as dark as the control line. Ive taken another one today and its gone back to light again. Would you say I have ovulated? Those days the lines were dark was cd9 so is that a little early to ovulate?

Can anyone help?

Cd9 does seem pretty early to be ovulating as the phase after ovulation only usually lasts around 14 days which would give you a really short cycle!
Did you have any other signs of ovulation like ewcm? Or do you use an app to help track ovulation?
I would say continue testing and dtd every other day.

Thanks Netty, I did have ewcm to and my boobs have been very sore. My period was only for 4 days.. I don't know. Like you said, I'm going to carry on testing. I am at my fertile window, that's what my calandar says although its cd 12 now. Will see how I get on. Thank you for your reply. Much appreciated.

Ah signs of ovulation look good so maybe your cycles will differ after coming off bc.
Ived used the cheap test strips for opks this month and my test line never got as dark or darker than the control line. But the day i had a slightly dark line i also had ewcm so im taking that as my positive (cd17). Since then ive had no line or very very faint ones.
Good luck x

Sorry I realised id called you Netty. I mean I can see in Google a few people have ovulated early but I don't know. My calander says Saturday will be the day I ovulate so I'll just keep testing for a week or so see if they are any changes. They are only cheap packs that I'm using to from home bargains. I hope I get my bfp this month. How long have you been trying for?

Hi may I suggest using a clear blue digital £15 in Asda very accurate too!! I've ovulated on day 10 with a 25 day cycle I'm now on a 28 day cycle and ovulate day 11-14!! My opks are very up and down but the line has to be as dark or darker generally for a definite yes here are mine from this cycle
i use cheapie so twice a day from day 8-9 through until the cheapie line is pretty dark then I confirm with the clear blue for 2-3 days then they last you 3 months!! Hope this helps x

Ahh thats okay babydustx,
Yeah keep testing just incase, dont want to miss anything. I just use the ones off amazon, i only test once a day so possibly miss my surge so i might look to test at least twice next time to see if my line gets stronger during the day.
This is my first month ttc number 2, it took about 6 months to concieve our first but i didnt use opks then or track cm. Just had an app and dtd on the right days. Im hoping it doesnt take too long this time as ttc can make us ladies go crazy lol on cd20 and twitching to test already haha but guna try wait til AF due/late!!
How about you, how long you been ttc? Aw me too, hope you get a bfp 😊 x
01/10/2015 at 14:25
The darkest line i got was on cd17 and then after that they started to get light again. Ive got a 30 day cycle so didnt think i would ovulate that late or any later than that anyways. Will look into getting clear blue if i dont get my bfp this month. Smiley face seems to be easier to understand than the 'is it isnt it' a positivr line haha

Thanks missnyangels thats useful. How long have you been Ttc?
Nelly, it's my 3 cycle ttc. I find myself very disturbingly obsessed! Haha. I need to ban myself from Google. It doesn't help that my sister has just had her ds. It makes me so broody. I'm only on cd 12! 🙈 My boobs have been sore since CD 9 any reason why that might be?
01/10/2015 at 17:54
Aw it does seem like everyone else is having babies when ttc, hopefully it wont be too long until its your turn.
Oooh tell me about it, so hard no to google everything! Its so useful but so bloody annoying at the same time haha.
Sore boobs can be linked to ovulation, so that coinsides with your opk!! Looking good hun, its also a sign of pregnancy but think it would be too early for symptoms! Although everytime i get a belly twinge or i feel a bit sick im like oh is this related, isnt it, arghhhh roll on testing day x
01/10/2015 at 17:55
I had a mc in November at 20 wks so been trying properly since Jan fell pg twice more and mc again! This is the final try as I'm 38 and clock is ticking!! I do have 3 children though already but would love one more then that's definitely it!!!:)
01/10/2015 at 18:07
Yeah definitely early for testing. I'm exactly the same, having a cold or even just a headache I'm like ooo another symptom! I think quite a lot of people don't actually have that many symptoms when they end up actually become pregnant. So when are you planning on testing?
missmyangels I'm sorry to hear about you mc's. Its such a shame isn't it. Thats another thing I keep seeing, people finally getting there bfp and then having a mc. Makes me worried. Are you at your tww yet?
I wish you both the best of look! You'll have to keep me updated. ☺️ Xxx
01/10/2015 at 18:27
Aww really sorry to hear that missmyangels, hugs, hope it all goes well this time and you get your sticky bean.
Babydustx, symptom spotting is a nightmare isnt it, especially as pregnancy and AF symptoms are so similar. Im going to try my very best to wait til AF is late, its due on 12th. Ive got a batch of internet cheapies in my draw though so i dont know if i'll be able to wait that long! Ovia has me testing in 10 days time.
When you testing? X
01/10/2015 at 18:52
Oh god, I think I'd break having tests already on one side. I say when AF is due but I highly doubt I'll wait. My partner doesn't want me to test without him but I know I probably will do as harsh at it is. He's more calm about it all but with me, I can test everyday if I wanted to haha.
01/10/2015 at 19:10
Who would have thought peeing on a stick was so addictive haha. I know im so tempted to do one even though i know its wayyyy to early and be negative regardless.
So would that be around 15th? Eee my maths is so bad! Good luck, make sure you keep us updated! X
01/10/2015 at 19:23
Very close Nelly! Haha, I'll be due the 17th. I've got ages to wait yet, boooo. I'll probably test earlier if I'm honest probably a few days before. So how many dpo are you? I will do, you to! It's so exciting isn't it.
01/10/2015 at 20:36
I'm only 2dpo!! Be another 10 days at least until I test!! I've got 10 cheapie tests from Amazon in my drawer!! 1 clear blue and 1 superdrug own test all 10miu so should pick up a pg if I suspect I am early!! Roll on the tww:) X Good luck to us all
01/10/2015 at 22:35
Ohh good. If I did ovulate on cd9 I'd technically be 3dpo today. But who knows, I'm just going to hope for the best anyway. Good things come to those who wait as they say. ☺️ X
02/10/2015 at 07:15
Im not too sure how many dpo i am, ovia has my peak day as cd16 and i got my darkish opk on cd17 so im just going to go with that, so i think im 3dpo. Oooh so we should all be testing around the same time-ish. How amazing would it be if the 3 of us got our bfp. It is very exciting.
My oh told me to try not to think about it until test day hahaha
