As I usually ovulate between CD16 and CD19 (with only one time at CD15) I wasn't planning on starting testing until CD12 (tuesday) but I am having ovulation 'pains' and cramping (weird this early) so with D cutting her nursing down maybe I should test earlier so as not to risk missing ovulation? But then I don't want to waste so many tests either? Do I just stick with trusting on my usual ovulation dates? I am charting and my temps have been up higher (then dropping down so not post-ov yet) but figure thats just cos the weather is hotter and nights sultry.

We DTD CD8 but with work committments unlikely we'll DTD again for a few days (unless I DO know I am definitely ovulating then I'll MAKE time! lol)

I've got 20 OPK's. 3 cycles worth if I only test from CD12 (more left if I ovulate CD16 rather than CD19) but probably/possibly only two cycles worth if I test from now but don't ovulate til later......?

But they are cheap on eBay.....? (lol, pee-aholic talking)

I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!

If you haven't already, I would say you might as well take a test. Especially since Dakota is feeding less, and you've been having O cramps. CD 10 is still pretty early, maybe you'll O over the next few days? Hopefully you won't need 3 months worth of OPKs so I reckon get to testing!!
And keep us posted too

YES! You should defintely start the OPK's now.. Especially becuse you are feeling the O pains... Your body is probably regulating itself after BF for a long time and now cutting down to 2x a day. You said so yourself you're an e-bay pee-aholic! So you won't be wasting tests! It's all for good reason haha. DTD one more time and see if you can catch that O pain eggie!

lol, the enthusiasm is great! But my OPK from yesterday was negative.

And I still refuse to get my hopes up once I have ovulated, but the b'ding part is something we ARE in control of (mostly, woe be the partner who is not in the mood! lol) so is a positive thing.

I do feel different this cycle though.
