Hi everyone! I introduced myself on the TTC board earlier and have gotten so much support already!! I love this place so far
My husband and I have been together for 8 years and married for 5 months.
I stopped birth control Feb. 7 and we are now TTC
We are so new to all of this and we don't really know what to expect, but we are so excited!
I bought my first ovulation kit this am (I am now on day 12 of my cycle) and I got a negative
I had a pretty normal period... 7 days... Pretty heavy flow... Just like it was before I got on birth control 4 years ago.
I hope this cycle is "normal" enough for me to ovulate. I don't know how long my "normal" cycle is though, because I have been on BC for a while.
Hoping for some kind of positive results soon!! And I want to meet all of you... I need the advice and support!
-Jill

Hi Jill I'm Amanda. Im new to this forum as well. So far I really like it to.
Don't get frustrated because you opk says you didn't o today. If you don't have a regular 28 day cycle you probably won't o day 14.
I o on a different cd every month. I check my cm and use bbt to track mine. This month I will be using opk for the 1st time. We have been ttc 1 off and on for 2 1/2 years and the last 2-3 months we have been getting very serious about it. We are trying the sperm meets egg plan this month. I just learned about it a couple weeks ago. I have asked quite a few people about it and it's highly recommended so I'm pretty excited to give it a try.
Good luck and baby dust to you

btw I would not consider myself an expert but I have been doing quite a bit of research for the last 4-5 months. If you have any questions I will gladly help in any way I can

Bd every other night starting cd 8
start using opk on cd 10
When test is positive, bd that night, plus two additional nights in a row
Skip one night, then do one last try
