Hello my name is Lisa and I am new here I am so confused as to when my official day of ovulation is? I run 28-32 day cycles and I got a ++++ opk on cd15 and I had egg white cm from cd15-cd18. So which day is o day? Am I 11 dpo or 8 dpo? I have take a test everyday since cd21 (big let down) Duh!!! LOL. Big fat ------When can I expect a bfp if am pg? Any thoughts would help?

There is no way to tell exactly which of those days was O day. Are you temping, too? If so, it is most likely the last day before your temps went up. You might also see a temp dip on that day. Unless you've got early pregnancy tests (25mIU/ML), then you won't see a bfp until at least 15 dpo or so. If you've got the early tests, it's possible, but unlikely, to see one as soon as now. Your best bet is to wait until 15 dpo (not that I can even take my own advice on that!).

Thanks Lin It's helpful that I'm not crazy in not knowing for sure. Unfortunatly I do not temp b/c i have a crazy schedule and It doesn't work well. I've tried. Are you in the 2ww?

Yep, I'm at 5 dpo myself. I've been really good at not getting my hopes up the last couple months, but this month it's hard, because today I've been really moody (when I'm normally a super-rational non-emotional type of person), and I have really bad cramps! I've never had that before. I would almost think that perhaps I miscalculated O and it's here late if it weren't for the fact that my cp & cm say definitely not. So, I'll probably just get my hopes up and go on a testing frenzy in a few days time!

Wow you sound like me. I think I may have set myself up for failure this month. I am having a really hard time this month myself. I Told myself there was no doubt I was getting pg this month almost the whole cycle now i am being really neg. I am for sure on a testing frenzy, but I think that might be making it worst. I to have been soo emotional crying at some stupid stuff and losing it in rage at the littlist things. I'm not normally this way either . My dh normal calls me his little block of ice! LOL How long have you been ttc?

This is actually only our third month, and it's my second month charting. It's amazing how different the two charts are, though. It makes it much harder to interpret. My follicular phase temps are higher, and my luteal phase temps are lower than they were last month. I also had a dip in the luteal phase which I a__sume corresponds to a secondary estrogen surge. How about yourself?

lillamb, sorry to cut in here, but if you are finding temps difficult to chart, then the cervical fluid method may be the best. Toni Weschler (sp ?) has written 'Taking Charge of your Fertility' - it's a very well known book and her three signs are cervical fluid (egg white consistensy or stretchy at least and very plentiful), temps, and soft and open cervix - also harder to chart maybe ! Check out www.tcoyf.com !!! I bought the book on amazon and it is so interesting.... not just about how to get pg but also how to avoid it if you want to stay on natural methods which a lot of people want to do between babies !
