I use both iPhone & android apps for Fertility Friend and its amazing..! It's like an online journal. You can chart literally anything from your period day, BBT, CM, OPK and HPT results in one chart. Even your BD timings, mood, specific symptoms eg cramping, pms. It then uses all that info to calculate your ovulation dates and expected AF dates and when to test.
It's really unbelievable! You even have an offline mode to record stuff when u have no Internet then you sync it with your chart when you're back online. Works great for me since I travel across the world like crazy.
You get a free 30 day trial, and a free, very empowering fertility & charting course which I highly recommend for all the ladies here as it helps answer lots of your fertility questions.
It also has a super active members message board which is a buzz of activity with posts going in literally every minute and if you sign up for the VIP package you get a dedicated fertility guide to answer your questions within a record 10minutes (every question, I swear!)
I highly recommend it, it has really helped me take charge of my fertility!
You can have a look at my chart for my last cycle here:
Hi Byronney, sorry I had travelled. AF showed big time! I'm so bummed, thought july would be our month. The positive thing is my cycles are back to the good ol' pre-m/c 28 days yay!
I'm now at CD4. Summing up strength for August. Not giving up..hope is a thing with feathers.... Oh wow..your story gives me even more strength. Can't wait to go crazy writing bfp on the boards soon!View Thread
Thanks Byronney. Love your signature by the way Everytime things go crazy, I start (out loud lol..!) 'hope is a thing with feathers'..and everyone else looks at me like I'm losing it lol.
Will be testing tomorrow. I'm having the craziest cramps (for 2weeks now), had an ultrasound done today to check, it came out as normal. Cramps still here though, some light spotting too and my BBT dangerously dipped. I really should be getting AF by now, but since she hasn't showed i'm hoping my luck will change Will keep you updated.View Thread
Awww Becca, so sorry to hear that..(hug). Was really holding out for you. AF came pretty quick huh? I actually prefer that than having to wait for an extra week with high hopes then AF shows. It really does stink all the same to have to go through that next cycle. Fingers crossed that you don't have to wait too much longer for your BFP..! I'm at 11dpo..will test tomorrow or Saturday. Trying to hold back as long as possible, but I so wanna test.. Fx!View Thread
I'm now at 5days DPO. No specific symptoms yet. Yeah, the waiting feels like ages..its killing me too lol! I have to wait until at least until 18DPO though which should be on 20th to test because my last cycle was so long AF came on CD39! So I really want to wait this one out
Good luck to you too!! Oh, I'll also be on vacation but early August, hopefully we'll be smiling all the way to the beach! View Thread
Gosh..thanks for responding. I was thinking I gave TMI
Well DH was having an inexplicable bout of 'BDphobia'. It still beats me how what to me is good news so we can DTD with a confidence, could cause such an opposite reaction on him. Oh how I wished we could self-impregnate lol!
Well he finally got it together and we managed to do the BD day 3 of ve OPK. My temp chart says i'm still probably fertile so hopefully we caught the egg in time. I really hope for a BFP this time. The anxieties of TTC are beginning to take their toll and we don't want it to ruin an otherwise beautiful thing <3View Thread
I'm going crazy out of my mind! I want to scream, punch a wall, use profanity lol! It's not even funny. I work shifts so we realized that part of our problem is that I O'd away from home last few cycles. So this month I finally got a "TTC-friendly" timetable that keeps me home on the important days. Everything has been going ok on my end. I have temped, checked CM, taken my prenatal supplements consistently. I finally get a positive OPK and happily show DH, who has been a great cheerleader for me. Then DH comes up with the whole "I'm too stressed to do the BD" line. What????! Now?!! Today?!! Oh c'mon!!! This is day 2 of +Ve OPK and DH won't DTD! And he really can't. I've tried sweet talk, hard talk, hot talk, name it. His sail is down, completely. Anyone having this problem? I'm so frustrated. My 48hr window is up and for sure we've missed ovulation by now. I'm so mad!View Thread
Thanks Byroney! Kinda sensed you'd tell me to speak to my Doc lol! Well, the question answered itself. I got a smiley on my OPK today, for the first time..so cool! Which would place my ovulation to be within 12-48hours of my CD14-16. In which case my O day moved from CD23-25 to now. Thank God I started testing my OPKs early or I would have missed it!
Oh, My Doc is in my home country which is why I can't reach her easily. I was put on Femara for PCOS following my last highly irregular cycles.Still haven't found a gynae in my "new" country of residence, but will do soon.View Thread
Hey Beccajo84, How is it going? Any ups or downs? I'm just celebrating small victories. Got my first positive OPK for the first time ever! I'm so excited I had to tell someone!! Its like a BFP lol.. So next, BD like no man's business lol! View Thread
