My first cycle
I am on CD 24 and have been using OPK's since CD8 to see if there is any sign of ovulation this cycle. I am EBF and Matthew isn't even 4 months old. Well last night I got a blaring + OPK. I also had EWCM and killer O pains. I am hoping this means there is a chance I am Oing this cycle. We did BD just incase ;)

Does anyone know if you can have a + OPK and then not O? In the past when I charted and temped OPK's were always right on with my O date.

I am just so excited to possibly be able to TTC again this soon. We really would love another baby, but are getting a little old to be trying for too long. I am 34 and Dave is 44. It took us seven years to finally have Matthew.

The good news is I can pee on things again in 8 days! I bought 150 internet cheapie HPT's for around $12 on ebay....and I am just dying to test them out :lol:

Re: My first cycle
Good luck! I have never had experience with OPK's but I hope it works for you and you get your BFP soon!
Wow!!! That is a Killer deal to get 150 HPT's for $12!!!! If you get a BFP this cycle I wouldn't mind buying the rest off of you! LOL...

Re: My first cycle
If I get a BFP you can have some ;)

I once bought 700 generic FRER's for $25 with shipping!

Here is a pic....

I think my family was ready to admit me to the psyche ward after that one....LOL I did end up sharing them with the girls on the TTC after Loss board.

I think I have a POAS addiction for sure. :rolleyes:

Re: My first cycle
LOL, wow, thats quite a package! :huh::D

As for OPKs, if the lines were definitely equal in colour then you ovulated otherwise you can get two lines (but not equal, one faint) throughout your cycle with minor surges. LOL...I'm betting you know that though so I am sure your assessment is accurate!
Just keep an eye on your LP. Even though you can ovulate you might not be bavk to full fertility...although I know two women who got pregs at 3mths whilst fully nursing.

And I feel the same with you on age! I just turned 30 and my hubby is 41. TTC doesn't come easy for us (16mths first time, been over 2yrs this time but with inadequate LP). I wanted two children close in age then a third 'in the future' but before 35. Doesn't look like it will be that way if my kids take 3yrs or so to wean and my fertilty suffers for it.
