Man....I'm so confused. I thought I had things all planned out to use the Shettles Method and now as I research things, the O+12 method may be the way to go. Anyone out there have any opinions or info? Has Shettles worked for you? What about O+12? BTW, I'm TTC PINK. Thanks, guys!

I havent actually done the shettles method, but know that 3/4 of my boys were definately conceived on O day. Im not sure about my first. I think O+12 could be harder to time, unless you know your cycle really really well.

Thx, Shell. AF has been all over the place ever since I was young so it'll be tough either way. Also I just got my 1st AF back after delivering DS#2 13 mos ago so my cycle is really crazy right now, especially since I'm still BF DS#2. We'll probably use the ovulation test strips starting tomorrow just to get a feel for things. Since we'll start TTC in May (so soon! ...), we'll probably try the O + 12 method and cross our fingers. I just don't know how I'd even make Shettles work for TTC a girl since I'd not know when to stop DTD before ovulation & most likely run into boy territory. I guess we shall see what happens...
