It's the little things... — The Bump
TTC after 35

It's the little things...

For the first time, I saw a very definitive positive on the wondfo OPK this morning.   I still feel so insecure about temping and analyzing the secondary signs, so this small "success" is making me happy this morning.  Now... I'm trying to overcome the urge to make my hubby meet me for lunch.  :)

Re: It's the little things...

  • why do you feel insecure? Temping only proves O after the fact...and then we all obsessively watch hoping it doesn't drop 14dpo! The cm & OPK are a much better indicator and when in doubt BD!!!

    Glad you got a + today!! Go get him!

    This is my 3rd cycle to chart my temps.  The first cycle was short and O was not evident to me or to FF I guess, since the crosshairs are dashed.  Over the past year, my cycles have ranged between 24 & 31 day cycles.   So looking at this month's chart, I wasn't sure if maybe the temp dip on day 12 was an early O or if was still to come.  I'm thankful for my positive OPK to remove the doubt now.
