Sigh...and it says I O'd on cd 12 That is bad...especially since we didn't bd until morning of cd13. Well we did bd on cd 10 or 11 but the kids interupted and DH didn't get to finish. The kicker is my opks did NOT give me a + this month. Is it possible for the opks to just not work? For them to never give a + even if I did O??? And if they aren't woking right then that might explain why it has taken us this long to get a BFP...I've been planning my BD'ing around the opks! AND how do I post my chart from FF? I'll put it in my siggy if someone will explain how to do that

I'm sorry. I don't know a whole lot about OPKs but I didn't seem to have much luck with them this cycles.

To share your chart: at the top of FF you'll go to Sharing and click on tickers, create it there and it will give you a code for sharing. Then you just put that code in your siggy!

I'm hoping FF is wrong...PLUS I didn't start charting until cd8 (dr wants me to chart for a couple months to see what might or might not be going on).

I'm not convinced FF is correct. You are still having fertile CM, and that's not a strong shift. I'd keep BDing! I have no experience with OPKs, so I can't tell you anything there.

Yes an opk can miss your surge, especially if you only test once a day. If you test twice a day, it's unlikely they would miss it...
FF is just basing it off what you have so far. You could very well O in a few days and ff would adjust the crosshairs, if it looks more likely that your O was on a different day. Hope that makes sense, my brain isn't working right. lol. I can't figure out how to word it the easiest; hope you got what I was trying to say! Good luck and hopefully you will O in a few days. I would also keep BDing!!

Everyone gave good advice, but since the lines are dotted then don't take it too seriously yet! Your temp might reveal something different in a few days and FF will adjust.

Ok...I didn't realize that about the dotted lines AND I know I've heard several girls say that FF got their o date wrong before. I don't think I o'd personally. Tonight I was going to "start" BDing for this cycle Sooo...I'm not giving up that easily. I have been Oing on cd 16-18 the past couple of months...so I'm guessing another couple days and I should be getting a + on the opks. AND the past couple of months I got + opks for at least 2 whole days...so I guess I could have missed it, but I didn't know the surge length could change from month to month too LOL Maybe eventually I'll figure all this stuff out LOL

I bet you didn't really O yet! The cycle I got my bfp, FF had my crosshairs placed a week before my body O'd! Keep BD at least every other day! I bet you will see an even more prominent temp shift in a week or so!!
