Trying to conceive

based on the opks shown in the photo (bottom one was this morning's, the one before was yesterday morning's etc), I am guessing that my positive opk was from yesterday, then i should be ovulating today or tomorrow? When is my 1dpo and when I should BD until? so far I have BD'ed on y, yesterday and this morning.

5th oct was positive, so you should ovulate 6th so the 7th would be 1dpo. Good luck!

Yes one up from bottom looks positive:)
The following day from a positive is classed as ovulation day as it takes 12-24 hrs from first positive for your egg to travel!
The next day is then 1dpo 😊
As for bd it’s the four day lead up to your positive and the day of your actual positive that you are meant to be at your most fertile:)
I carry on until my positive opk fades slightly and u know the surge is over!
Good luck xxx

Thanks Missmyangels! I think I started BDing too late this month, only the day before my positive of my opk and four more times on the following days. Fingers crossed for all of us trying xxx

Your still covered the day b4 a positive is perfect and it only takes one little sperm 😉
My last pregnancy I fell the day before my positive or the day after as that’s when we’d bd closest when I looked at my chart:)

i can't belive I am only 4dpo.
I have 35-40 days cycle and I envy others who have shorter cycles.
I feel I am running out of time - I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago.

I was 40 in January!! You’re not alone;)
I still feel 20 that’s the annoying thing haha 😂 My gynaecologist wasn’t worried about my age at all 😊

I feel 20 too! I have two children already and I fell pregnant very quickly with both of them (within a couple of months of trying). I always think it is my age that is making it harder this time round. have you got other children! Xx

Yes I have 3 Children now 14,11 & 6
Like you was pregnant within 3 cycles!
We started trying for another when I was 37 then came the problems!! Again I fell easily but lost our little boy at 21weeks was absolutely devastated :( I’d had a miscarriage at 10 weeks between my 1st and 2nd children so I was very aware things can go wrong but not at 5 months was such a shock. I’ve got his pram and bottles in the loft as we thought we were in the so called ‘safe zone’.
Anyway we tried again and I fell pregnant 3 More times all within 3 cycles of each other but lost them at 5 weeks, 6 weeks & 12 weeks.
My gynea bloke is brilliant I’ve had lots of tests and all is fine so it’s named secondary infertility
Since my last loss 18 months ago I haven’t fallen pregnant so I had keyhole surgery and again all was normal but my Fallopian tube is kinked basically they damaged it during surgery when I had my miscarriages:/
He said I may fall again I may not so it’s a waiting game but I get very frustrated at the end of each cycle!!
Long history there 😂😂😂😂 bet you wished you hadn’t asked haha
Lets hope we get our babies soon I’ll probably give it a year then stop as I worry about Down Syndrome etc

sorry for your losses. glad to hear that you are ok now and all set to go.

Cd4 here ready to start again 😉 usually ovulate around days 10 earliest and 14 latest with a 26-28 day cycle and regular as clockwork!!
How about you ? X

26-28 day cycles? That's so good
i wish I had a shorter cycle,
i usually have a 35-38 day cycle, I ovulate usually on cd25 / cd26. Quite a short luteal phase. I did my day 21 blood test for progesterone etc today to see if I'm actually ovulating. Hopefully I have really ovulated last week when I got my positive opk.
