Im new to the whole Swaying thing, i already have a son and i would like to have him a brother
So here is some basic info
Ive been following the boy diet and testing my alkalinity levels .. So far everything is going fine
My periods are regular , i got my last one on the 9 th of march , and on the 22nd of march evening (9 pm) i got some ovulation pains , did the test but it was a faint line
The pains didnt stop and on sat 23 rd march afternoon (5 pm) got a dark line
Kept monitoring every 6 hours << stalker lol
Line kept getting darker after 24 hours of last +opk ( 5pm on sunday 24th) with SEVERE pain
Pains suddenly stopped around 11 pm , i think i saw ewcm but what im sure of that im not as dry as i was earlier in the day
Tested and i still get a line

Im not planning anything this month, im just practising, but i want to try next month for sure,
So my questions are:
Did i ovulate or not yet?
I got no pains, does that mean i ovulated?
And if i did,shouldnt the opk show negative?
When to dtd when swaying for a boy?
Ive read in another forum that dtd after 24 hr from 1st +opk and 48 hrs also is perfect for a boy, what doyou think?

Sorry for the very long post but i want to make it right
Thanks in advance

I would chart your temps and pay closer attention to ewcm. If you dtd 12 hours after ovulation it sways for a girl. So you need to be careful. I would chart cycles for a few months so you can see how the opks work with when you ovulate.
Thank you cavewoman for my beautiful siggy!!!
