That's full ferning. I have one of those too, but don't use it much anymore. I got one just as a nifty little gadget to play with. I do the full works FAM charting so it wasn't overly important to me to use the scope. I'll use OPKs just because I like to see the happy faces, but don't really need it either. My CM and CP tell me what I need to know about my fertility and then when my temp goes up it confirms.

Hey Rachel, I don't really know much about ferning buy I was wondering what CD you are on? I am on CD 15 using OPK's and temping too. I have a long cycle so I will probably ovulate in a few days. Good luck and baby dust to you! :)

woohoo for cycle buddies, lol. I'm CD 15 as well. I usually O on CD 18-22, but hopefully with this ferning it means I will O sooner, but either way I'm getting close!

Awesome!! Good luck to you! My OPK was negative today but a lot darker then yesterday so we'll see what happens :) and my temp hasn't spiked yet. Is this your first month doing ferning (or whatever it is called lol). Crossing my fingers we both get bfp's!!!!!

I wish I could just go off my CM and CP, my CP is all over the place and I NEVER get EWCM. Well I take that back, when I had Holden and was ovulating on my own I had a bunch, but now when I O on the meds I don't (they really dry me out, TMI sorry lol). I still check both daily, but very rarely get any changes worth noting.



Temp helps me the most, looking back away. Plus I have to start my progesterone in my 2ww but don't want to start it too early. I usually wait until the 3rd confirmed high temp to start it.

same here, a little darker than yesterday but not by much. Yep this is my first month with the scope! I already wake up to temp so I just use this at the same time, so it's not anything huge to add to my plate.

Quoting Tyler-Man's Mommy TTC #2:" I don't think so. Do you just lick it? Maybe I'm using too much spit LMAO :oops:"

I lick mine, you're supposed to use the spit from under your tongue so I kinda rub it under neath my tongue after building up saliva in my mouth. I don't think you can use too much, you just have to wait for it to dry all the way. I wake up with DH, take my temp, lick the scope, and then put them both aside and go back to sleep, then check it when I fully wake up.

I did not know to use the saliva from under your tongue. I will have to try that. Thanks for the tips

I think I remember mine being more pronounced when I used one, like larger, but it could just be different for each person. I see a fern pattern, so maybe tomorrow it will be stronger?
