My Temp was down this morning, isn't there a drop in temp right before O'ing?

Julie, from what I understand, your temp will RAISE right AFTER you O'd, so BBT monitoring helps you see when you finish O'ing more than anything. I did a quick search on temp drop and it says that can occur right before AF or when pg (so hopefully that is your reason Wink ) When I have more time to reasearch this, I may post some more info, but I know that when trying to determine your O date, it is a slight drop in temp (0.4-0.6 F) that you are looking for.

Keep your FX for me girls!! I had no luck with my OPKs once again, but I'm pretty sure I ovulated..... so frustrating! DH and I BD'd like banshees for the past week and the day I discovered my EWCM and had what I think are O pains, I dragged him into the bedroom in the middle of the day when his visiting parents were downstairs so I could get the baby deposit ASAP. How desperate is that?! I couldn't even wait until the evening because I was afraid I'd miss something, lol. I've also been feeling weird twinges in my lower abdomen and gassy, bubble-like sensation in my lower abdomen which I'm hoping are some kinda sign of implantation or something. A girl can wish, right?

Ablaze~ I'm the same way!! I think all of us TTCer's are crazy like that!!! Big smile My DH loves it! Wink

Where is everyone at in their cycle in our little group??? I'm 4 dpo (I think). I'm not really sure how you figure it all out. I had a +Opk on Thurs. I don't do BBT. So if I understand it correctly, the OPK's only give you an idea when ovulation might occur. Right?

Thanks for the info ablaze, my drop was 0.4. Plus I was noticing some pain today, I never noticed O pains before or I just wasn't in tune with my body. Laughing out loud

BFP's for everyone. Let's start this year off right!!!!!!

Ok girls, I finally got my + OPK on CD 18! I guess I'm a late O'er, lol. I also don't do BBT, but I'm gonna test tomorrow and see if my surge has ended. I think once you get the +OPK you're supposed to O 12-48 hrs later, with the average being 36 hours. Since I don't seem to fall in the "average" for anything, I'm gonna try to get the BD every night for the next 3 days. So it looks like all of us are just in waiting mode. FX and super sticky baby dust for us all!

ARGHHHHHH!!!! I finally got my stupid + OPK yesterday and wanted to BD through Wed. to make sure we had a steady flow of swimmers and my hubby just called to say he won't be home until after 10pm and he's super tired! Why does this have to happen on my actual O day?! I asked him if we could BD tomorrow morning when he wakes up (at about 5 pm Sad ) and I could tell he wished I hadn't asked. Well, FX for me girls that we did enough by BD'ing at least every other day for the past week including last night. The O pains were pretty strong last night so I'm hoping we caught the egg. For heaven's sake, I never envisioned myself having these conversations with people a year ago..... this is a pain Sad(

I never thought I would be sharing all this info either!! But.... I have concluded that sometimes my DH just doesn't understand how I feel. After all, he IS a man! I needed some other women who "get it" to share in what I am feeling!!

FX for you!! Maybe you will be able to seduce him. Wink I feel guilty sometimes because I know that sometimes he feels like he is just being used. But when it's O time... we don't always have time for "real sex"... as my DH calls it!

I think you can feel good about the fact you BD'd last night and you could feel the O pains.... just my gut feeling!
