• Would I go by 26 or 28 days when figuring out O?

    Hi everyone! TTC over a year now, one MC in June. Since bc has been out of my system I am on a 28 day cycle, so regular that it happens on a Friday between midnight at 10am. In November it was a 26 day cycle which threw me for a loop. When trying to figure out O this month, do I go by 26 days or 28? Thanks in advance! Good luck to everyone... show more

Any advice would help, thanks. ps-I know not to test before period but I was getting excited; our one year anniversary is next weekend

    I have been charting for 5 cycles now and I am confused as ever! My cm was most fertile 11/20-21 however I took opk yesterday and today and both are positive however my cm is creamy. Which is more accurate? I stopped birth control in June, was on Ovcon 50. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

Anway, I felt the pain on 8/29, I know it was it, same place, sharp pain. My question: I am using Fertility Friend.com and even though I put my information in every day, they think I ovulated 9/3. Can you ovulate that late after feeling the pain. Hubby and I have done the bd 8/22,24,26,29, 9/1 and 9/2. What are our chances? I am so confused any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Ladies, hope you are all doing well. I am frustrated. This is our second month TTC and I am confused. I only went off the pill 6/20 and got my first period 7/18 but nothing is going smoothly. I chart my BBT daily, I don't understand it so I joined Fertility Friend and guess what...they don't understand it either. I'm at day 30 right now, no period but I took a First Response pregnancy test Friday which was negative. I know many of you on here have been TTC longer than we have and I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I don't understand it. None of the old symptoms of ovulation are present in my body yet so I have no idea if and when I did. My temperature is all over the place and it's taken within 2 hours every day. No real question here just venting and asking how do you do it month after month? I am ready to stop the BBT and just throw it all out the window and let Mother Nature take it's course. Suggestions, comments. Baby dust to all!

Do I put my parents names on one candle and the grandparents on a separate candle? Or do we each get one? I am confused. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
