Re: August WTO

  • I am here! Just hanging out waiting to ovulate!!! When did you ladies start doing OPKS? Like during your predicted fertility week or like a certain calendar day after AF? 
  • I'm here too. IVF cycle for me, so retrieval and transfer will be the last week of August. So I'll be here for a while...

    @Mamaof2beautifulgirls I start doing OPK's around CD11 and I usually ovulate between CD16 and 20.

  • Thanks @ruby696! Fingers crossed 🤞 for you this cycle! I have never used OPKs. I alway just watched for body signs. 
  • IMO, they're nice because they confirm what your body is telling you. Also, I've had the most luck on cycles when we HIO right before the OPK is truly positive. And then for like 4 days after. 
  • Here now, as well. I usually start opks around CD 9 or 10 and I generally O around CD 14-16.

  • @Mamaof2beautifulgirls I agree with @ruby696 that opks are nice because it's just one more thing confirming what's happening with your body. I usually o cd18-19 and I start opks around cd13


  • I just keep reading about how to use them and I am like how am I going to do this teaching!
  • @manillabar @splashmountain and @ruby696 I am believing so hard this is our month!!! ❤️

  • @Mamaof2beautifulgirls each person is different but I never had trouble catching my surge if I tested when I got home from work (around 6pm most days). There’s no way I could inconspicuously test during work hours.

  • I too only test once a day and catch my surge every time.


  • For the last 4 days I have gotten blinking smiley faces. I am ready to see a solid smiley face! 😆

  • I can officially be in WTO! CD 1, AF finally arrived! Never thought I'd be so excited for that.

  • @Mamaof2beautifulgirls saw your post in TWW, FX for you! 
    Mamaof2beautifulgirls
  • Yay @ottergirl81! Fx for a great cycle

  • @splashmountain thank you! I think this cycle will be more about getting things back to normal but never know! 
    splashmountain
  • CD 1 for me today. Booooooo. 
  • @tyrion_ Oh poop! I'm sorry to here that. 
  • Thanks @ottergirl81!!! I think I am waiting to test on Friday or Saturday. Just not looking forward to it! @tyrion_ I am so sorry!!!! That just stinks all around!

  • I wasn’t ready to leave you sweet ladies yet anyway 😘

    This is the worst part of the cycle for me. It’s boring and there isn’t anything to do but wait. But I was super pumped to see my cycle regularity percentage jump from 20% to 52%! I had two similar back to back cycles and FF likes that way better than my crazy cycles. Maybe I won’t get five “cycle warning” lectures from FF this month.

  • According to my period app I use for tracking, because I have been temping, I O'd yestezrday. I am currently self-benched, but this is good to know for when we are actively trying again next cycle. Just thought it was interesting. Will be trying OPKs as well for the first time to see how well those work. I sound like a big newbie to all of this and sort of am. In the past I thought I could just "time" things right, and now I just feel like I am running out of time. Am on CD 14. 
  • @ottergirl81 Good luck with the OPKs. This will be my third cycle using them and I found them easier to use/read than I was anticipating. I used the  cheapies from amazon.

  • @tyrion_ I just got some from amazon that I'm looking forward to trying🙂
