How do so many of you know when you ovulated?? Are you super regular, or did you take those OPK tests? I see so many posting about 10 DPO and 14 DPO, etc...I have no idea when I ovulated other than an approximate week or so.
Generally you have.to be really trying to know the exact day you o'd. My DH and I had been TTC since may, so I was charting my bbt and checking cm. Those are the most accurate was to recognized ovulation. I think lots of women do the OPK too. After two miscarriages we decided to stop TTC for awhile, so I stopped taking my temp. Based on cm, cramping, and dates I know I either o'd the 6th or.the 8th, but not sure because no temp.
Since I had DD, my body shows really clear signs of ovulation. I knew without a doubt when it was happening. I wasn't charting and we weren't trying...just not preventing. But I do know the exact date of conception because the only time I'm even remotely interested in DTD is when I'm O'ing.

We were seeing a fertility specialist so I know exactly when I ovulated because I was getting ultrasounds every other day the week of ovulation. One morning the follicles were there...the next they weren't. =)
I took my temp every morning at 630 and charted that plus my CM. WHen I saw a consistent rise in temp, I knew I ovulated on the day before my 1st raised temp. I tested positive 12 DPO. Some women get a dip in their temp when implantation occurs. I did not. I didn't even have "sexy time" the day I ovulated (not that you really wanted to know that) so I had given up on a sticky bean this month.
I have no idea either, the only reason I know when I conceived is because that's the only day that my SO and I DTD anywhere close to my ovulation days. I honestly thought I had o'd the day or two after we DTD because it would have been in the very beginning of when I should have o'd. My cycles aren't regular and we certainly were not ttc so I wasn't charting anything.
