good morning Ladies!
i think my + OPK on sunday was another false positive as my temps are confirmingalthough i did have ov pains sunday and my skin has broken out, which for me is normally my signs.
but who knows !

Morning Monnie :)
Sorry about the potential false positive hon, how frustrating! I had a false OV last month too with all the classic symptoms but it turned out I didn't OV until 2 weeks later. It's so frustrating how you think you're getting to know your body and then you find out that nope, it's just messing with you a little bit! Keep with the OPKs and temping though and hopefully you'll get your true OV and have it confirmed :)
Hi to all that follow!

Monnie - I'm feeling exactly the same. My temps didn't rise this morning and have been fairly constant for the last 3 days so def haven't o'ved. No idea what's going on! At this rate I'll need to buy more OPK's!!
GOM - Everyone seems to be having trouble with OPK's!
I'm hoping that I do OV this week as I'm off to Belgium next week with work so it would be the law of sod if it happened then.
Hope everyone is having a good day x

Very frustrating Monnie :( I hope its not false though xx
I dont know how you all do the whole OPK thing, it just seems so scientific for me! Its bad enough I have to use an app to remember when im oving haha!
I am pretty sure today is Ov day for me. Had EWCM the past 3 days and DTD last night and Sat night so hoping we've covered all bases.
I went to the doc yesterday to get a new asthma pump prescription and was talking to her about improving my chances of concieving. She said I am a little bit overweight but it shouldnt affect things. She also told me to relax and stop thinking about it because I will put undue pressure on myself. Which is all well and good but hard to follow that advice when I have been tracking my cycles since September!
However, I think she's right and after this month I think I need to take a chill pill and just relax. I'm lucky in that I know I do ovulate and I know I can get pregnant. Its just a case of letting nature run its course I suppose.
Saying that I will be pulling my hair out this time next month I'm sure.
Wow bit of an essay there sorry! x

iv never had false positives before, but this is the first time iv used the clear blue with hormone indicator opks! i think from here forward i will only use their bog standard digital opks

What a beautiful, sunny day. I might take my laptop outside to work today. (Another perk of working from home )
Monnie - sorry to hear you think you've had a false positive from your OPK. Fingers crossed that this isn't the case.
GOM - my body loves to mess me around and play tricks on me now that it knows I'm trying. You would think our bodies would help us, but no!
Mrs V - sorry you're no further forward either. Fx for this week lovely.
AFM, CD12 for me, should OV any day now. Quietly hoping for my body to wait until Thurs for H to be back from his week away. Fx!

Morning Rod, sorry I missed you there. FX for you this cycle too hun, certainly sounds like you dtd at the right times. Hmm, the old relax chestnut...def easier said than done!!

Morning all. Just saying hi as I'm supposed to be working!!! Another crap day ahead of me and won't get home until 9pm so might not make it on later.
I need to do some hen party planning at lunchtime but if I get 5 minutes I'll try and pop on for some personals.
04/06/2013 at 13:56
Monnie - hope its a positive this time and you do ov.
GOM - hi Mrs xx
Mrs V - fingers crossed for ov this week lovely.
Rod - relaxing is def easier said than done. Sounds like youve got a good Plan. I've decide I'm doing OPKs this month but if we are away on holiday next month I'm not going to bother. I really like the control of doing OPKs. With mine and H's ages we don't really have time to hope that we do it at the right time each cycle. We kinda HAVE to get the right time and OPKs help me know when that is. Plus I'm addicted to POAS lol
Figaro - lucky you out in the sunshine!!!
Back to work now. Booooooooo

Gillsy I completey get why people use OPK's and I think if things weren't happening for us in 6 months we would try them. I am pretty sure of roughly when I ovulate though, and I feel I might be even more upset if when I get BFN when I know we've DTD at the right time. Does that make sense?
Boooo to work!
04/06/2013 at 16:02
Rod - of course it makes sense. I'd prefer the relaxed route but I get ov pain for 2 weeks solid which makes it a bit more difficult to pin point. Don't think I could sustain 2 weeks of every other day DTD lol
04/06/2013 at 16:10
Well no fair enough. In all honesty I'm just guessing but 3 days of EWCM tells me its gotta be around about now!
04/06/2013 at 21:14
Quick hello from me, sorry I can't reply to everyone personally as I'm just popping on. I'm still waiting to ov and getting extremely fed up of peeing on sticks. I don't know why I'm bothering when I know I'm not ovulating.
