TTC after 35

Too late?

I'm wondering if any of you can weigh in, based on your experience (or just opinion). I know you can't KNOW, but I'm confused. Due to some family craziness in the last week, I've been a little off on tracking. I started using the OPKs on day 12 (I usually start on day 10), It's day 15 now and FF says I'm in the middle of my fertile week. I've gotten 4 days of empty circles. Which is fine, but I'm mildly concerned that I may have waited too long to start testing and the monitor won't pick up my peak? My CM is... abundant today, but I still am getting the "low fertility" empty circle. Do you think I've screwed this cycle up? If I've waited too long, will I just not see my peak (keep getting empty circles), or is it possible the monitor will show peak when it's not really my peak? I may be overthinking this... Sorry if this sounds frazzled. It's been a tough couple of weeks and I think I'm hyper-focusing on this because it's something "in my control" (ha!). Thanks for any input!

Re: Too late?

  • Are you temping?
    Honestly trust your body and if you have fertile CM i would trust that the most if everything you haven't been on top of tracking everything els. . This is just based on my short history of charting.

  • Thanks for your response @KirstenAlecia.  I had been temping, but got off track.  I did get the flashing smiley today, though, so it seems there was enough baseline and enough shift to pick up my surge.  Hurray!

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

    TTC is hard on us "control enthusiasts" isn't it? :)
