Jadis! Good Luck! My DS1 was due in May(4 days after my bday), but he decided to come 3 months early so we have a March baby instead,lol. I would love to have a girl in the month thats my bday, but I also dont want to keep waiting, esp since getting a BFP on the first attempt is rare, so Im happy with a baby anywhere from April to July I think(DS1 is March,and DS2 is august) I did not like being pregnant in August,lol. ut really O+12
Flirt, Hi! I wouldnt do Shettles personally, alot of his studys have been proven incorrect. If fact the O+12 study they did was to prove him right, but istead it proved him even more wrong! Go figure right?! Search on this site for Bequitas idiot guide for O+12, I was up until 2am this am reading it(its ALOT of info), but really O+12 isnt down the hr..and it doesnt have to be 12 hrs either. When you get your +Opk,stop testing, and start chking your cervix and cm, as soon as your cm changes(to whatever the "drier" version is that your body does)i.e. from ewcm to creamy or from creamy to dry, thats your "12 hr" and it can be 8 hours after O, or 16 hours after O, its different for every girl, the 12 is just the average hour it happens. Also at the "12 hr" your ph will also drop and thats what you need, I know I do, last week when I Oed I just could not get my ph down, and replens had worked with me before but this time it wouldnt budge it. So work on finding something to get your ph down. I had been eating about 2 big bowls of greek yogurt,strawberries,and equal, and my ph was 4.6, when I stopped eating it everyday it shot up to 6.3! which was right at O..only me right?lol. Anyway I would read that guide, it has everything you need to know about O+12, and it seems so much easier on how it is explained, I dont want to do cut off, b/c I worry about keeping my ph low for 3-5 days, so Im going to try this. I really hope Im able to chk my cervix, Ive never been able to, but Im going to keep trying and see if I can find it,lol.Hope this helped?
