Hi everyone! My name is Brooke, my DH is Ricky, and our DD is Emma and she will be 3 this month! When we TTC her I stopped my birth control and was pregnant within 3 weeks! We are very excited to try for #2 and I hope to get pregnant right away! I stopped by birth control last week and AF started on Monday. According to FF I should be fertile next week and we plan to BD everyday! I ordered 20 OPK and 20 pregnancy tests the other day and should be getting them in the mail this week. When should I start using the OPK? My cycles are usually 28 days apart but I started 2 days early this time because I quit taking my BC pills. So i'm thinking we should BD a few days before and a few days after FF tells me i'm fertile and ovulating. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Last time was such a breeze, but I am ready for a BFP RIGHT NOW! Last time I had the mindset that it would probably take several months and I was ok with that...this time I want it right away!!!

I think if you have a 28 day cycle, it's recommended to start testing on CD 11. Also, a true positive opk has a test lineas dark as the control line or darker. Fertility friend can help you chart. They even have a tutorial for charting which is pretty accurate and awesome. I also like babymed.com and countdowntopregnancy.com
Good luck getting your Bfp! Tons of baby dust to you and welcome!!!
