This is now my 6 cycle of trying. I'm not the most emotional person but each month is quite the rollercoaster of emotions. I get pretty down when af comes along and then
I usually stay optimistic during the 2ww. I've got 8 more days of waiting.
Hi there! From a medical standpoint all I've heard is to not increase the intensity of your workouts when you're trying. My speculation is because the little swimmers only need roughly half a day to get where they're going, you would only need to take it easy during that time. But I could be wrong, maybe someone else will have some more info to add.
I tried an OPK back in December with no definitive results. I have a dr. appt next week so I thought I'd give it another shot this cycle. I'm on CD 22 and got a positive finally! Seems a little late, even for my cycles being 33 days lately. I hope it's not a false positive (no egg actually released).View Thread
I make myself wait until the day af is due. For me, I'd rather wait and know that's it's probably right than get a bfn before and wonder if it's really negative or not. But everyone's different. Good luck, hope you get an early positive View Thread
