first attempt official here too! i am not super confident about the timing, i think OPK didnt work out for me this cycle. had a +ve and think it was the end of surge rather than the beginning. yesterday was -ve. anyway we BD this morning, hoping to be still before O. worst case basis, it was 36h before O which is better for me than after O. My DD2 was conceived on day of ovulation, 12 hours after, yes a perfect 0+12, but at that time i didnt know. So we wanted to BD before O. I am happy about all other aspects of the sway; it was not the most ecwm I ever had, but well... my DH said it is a beautiful day to conceive a child :o) lets all get some blue dust and a BFP!
bambino....Looks great!! we all get a BLUE BFP!!!
you're sweet. I still get a very +ve OPK now, 8h after the attempt. So maybe I was wrong and this morning, it was the beginning of the surge only. So i BD too soon, maybe 20 hours too soon according to Tamara's recommendations, but still before O. I checked some stats and the day before O definitely sways boy, as 36 hours before (according to the spreadsheet) could sway girl. So i am bummed. However, i feel O pain now and i am confident that my cm was turning creamy, cervix was closing, etc. That's why i went for it. I trusted my body more than OPK. and i thought that anyway, some hours too soon wouldnt hurt. I know that usually, a +ve OPK means that you O within 24 hours but it could be any time sooner, so that still leaves me with an attempt one day before O, right... I wish I could be happier with the timing so i could know i did everything correctly if I get my BFP. All these cycles, OPK and my cm were so in sync.... But well... I still think that if I had BD 12 after after the +ve OPK i just got, that would have left me after ovulation. Anyway, I will confort myself thinking that timing is the least proved factor. And at least, i wasnt a 0+12! thanks for reading and the support!
