got a question ladies. KD [Eli's Mommy] Due August 27 (boy); 1 child; Carrollton, Georgia 858 posts

Okie dokie ladies, I figured I would ask you for advice. Judging by my OPKs I am either 1 or 2dpo, since I had two bold positives two days in a row. DH and I Bded on the 19th (I think that was the day since I figured that was too soon to chart), the 24th, and last night. Today I am having cramping that is very mild, which I am contributing to Oing, and there is some pink discharge when I wipe. Could that be from the BDing , even if I have never had that before?



Regardless I am considering myself in the TTW and I will begin testing in 13 days. My fingers are super crossed right now, since I am almost to the point of giving up.

Quoting Amelia Margaret:" When did you get your first positive?"



My first positive was on the 25th.

im going to be honest with you, now i did this for 10 months before getting pregnant but your chances are slim that you are pregnant. i would contribute the cramping to the actual ovulation which occurs anywhere from 12 - 48 hours after your lh surge is detected, with an average of 36 hours. you can test in about 10 days from now and I wish you all the luck in the world but im thinking you may have missed your window this time. however, if you want to maximize your chances, next time you get a positive lh surge, BD on that day and the next 3 days and that should increase your odds of getting pregnant! good luck to you!!!

My two bold positive opks were on the 24th and the 25th. The mild cramping started yesterday and carried on into today. My cervix was very high on both of those days as well.

If she had sex on the 24th and ovulated yesterday she did not by any means miss her window.

well, i have had personal experience missing it just like that. i know how frustrating it is to want that positive and not get it. based on my experience she did. Im trying to give her the reasonable outlook, not pump her up to see that negative, but if it turns out positive, WONDERFUL!!!

She had sex the same day she got a positive OPK. How do you know you missed it before?

Judging by my countdown to pregnancy page, I am 2dpo...but if I missed the window, then I missed it. DH and I agreed that this will be our last cycle TTC. If we do not get the BFP we are praying for, then we are simply out of the game. Its been a long run of TTC, but I can't take the chemical pregnancies, getting my hopes up, and watching my friends and family get pregnant without even trying. If its not in the plan for us to get pregnant again, then we are going to stop trying.
