Hi everyone,

This is only my 2nd post so bear with me still! We have been TTC our first together now for about 3 months. I'm still trying to understand all of this! I used an OPK on CD 14 got a negative result, OPK'd again on CD 15, got a +. BD'd on CD 16 and CD 17, took the OPK again because I'm not scheduled to O until today but on CD 17 and 18 the OPT came up negative? I know the ovulation calculators out there are not always accurate but it says I shouldn't O until today? Does this make sense? I had CM a few days ago and now I don't, but I feel crampy like I could start AF today and have been feeling sick to my stomache in waves, not constant but I'm just trying to figure out do I trust the OPK or the calculator? Still trying to figure exactly when I O!

Thanks for your help and hope this isn't a stupid question!
Christine

Trust the OPK's hun.
The calculators are just a VERY rough guess which is usually off.
The OPK's test the actual hormone in your system at that perticular time. They are accurate.
You probably O'd on CD 15 or 16

Thanks for your help, I thought that might be the case. So who knows what the cramping is? I thought maybe it was O pains but it feels like AF is coming which isn't due until 9/7.......too soon to test! No stressing! Just keep telling myself no stressin!

About the cramping? Well, i have been having this...not sure when EXACTLY I O'd but have a window CD13-CD 17, however it has been cramping...or rather some pains like O'pains since then. At times I feel like the way one feels at 17-18 weeks of pregnancy when the baby starts moving or tapping inside...like something is slightly moving and at times it hurts!

This morning I was literary gagging when brushing...and the neusea never left me till now, I am sipping lemon flavored water to keep the neusea down...and though all these might not be pregnancy related, given the time, i am hoping that I am not getting some bug in the stomach.

All in all, I wish you the best and I hope those are implantation pains going on in your belly.

I agree. Trust the OPKs. They are much more accurate. Online calculators are not very accurate at all. Good luck to you and welcome to the TTC board! We are very glad to have you join us! Please let us know if we can help in any way or if you have any questions.
