TTC an April Baby!!
Hello. My name is Kelli, and we are ttc this month. I am currently on cycle day 9. I think I ovulate on cycle day 16. That is when I notice a lot of EWCM. My first son was a surprise, so I have never tried to get pregnant. So, when should I start using OPK's? Do you use them twice a day? Also, how much bd do you recommend? When to start bd? Every day or every other day? I am really hoping for an April baby, and am excited.

Thanks in advance for your advice!!! :)

Hi Kelli! :welcome: I can't answer your opk questions because I haven't started using them yet. Today is Cd2 for me. But I wanted to say hi. :)

I would start right now. Looking at your charts you have O'ed sooner than CD 16 and you wouldn't want to miss it! Some people test twice a day if they know they have a short surge. So it wouldn't hurt, if you have enough tests... Good luck!! :)

So, when should I start using OPK's? Now

Do you use them twice a day? Once in the afternoon should be enough. But if you want to do it twice a day you can... just know that you have to hold your pee for at least 4 hours to get an accurate reading and holding your pee that long twice a day can be difficult.

Also, how much bd do you recommend? When TTC DS DH and I BD every other day until I got a positive OPK then we did it everyday. We did that for this cycle too. This is our first cycle TTC #2

When to start bd? Now! Have fun!!

I use the OPK's twice a day because some surges only last 12 hours and I dont want to miss it. BUT i would recommend charting your temperatures, i started that this month after 28 months of TTC and really wich i had been doing this all along! It takes out all the guess work! Well, afterwards anyway. Use teh OPK's, have sex from day 11 to 16 so you dont miss it and use the temp chart so you know exactly what day it happened on!
