Do These Dates Match Up

My lmp was May 26 and I usually have a 30 day cycle. I did an O calculator on fertilityfriend.com and it said I should have O'd on the 9th, and the 3 days prior were my fertile days. So I bd'd on the 7th and the 11th and didn't think anything else of it. Well last night I did the O calculator on babycenter.com and a few other sites and it says that I should have O'd on the 11th (good thing I bd'd on that day) and the 3 days prior were my fertile days. Does any of this sound right to anyone? I haven't been charting anything and basically using these O calculators as a guide. Plus, I've had jelly like cm from the 7th up until yesterday (7 days) when I only usually have it about 2 days before O and then I dry up right after. Thanx for your responses.

5/26+30=6/25... 6/25-14=6/11 The first site you used calculated 14 days after your LMP, but it is better calculated as 14 days before your next period. Even then, there are a couple of days kick and slide in either direction. No idea why your ewcm continued several days longer than usual, but I would not take that as a sign of success right away. Good luck!

If you've got a typical luteal phase length of 14 days (the part of your cycle from ovulation to your period), then you would have ovulated on cycle day 16, which would have been the 11th, so that sounds about right. You don't know your exact luteal phase length (which is the same every month +/- a day or two), so you're best giving yourself a wide margin. Luteal phases can vary from woman to woman and are typically 10-17 days in length; so If you're eager to conceive, then you might want to temp for a couple months to determine your luteal phase. Then you'll know the exact range of dates each month in which you should try.

Thank you very much Grandpa Viv and Lin. I'll test in a few weeks and hopefully it's a bfp!
