Advice re OPK please-very early smiley face

This is my second month using an OPK (clearblue digital that tells you when you are both high and peak fertility). Last month I didn't get a high fertility sign at all (flashing smiley face), it just went straight to peak fertility (fixed smiley face). This was on day 12 which was a couple of days earlier than expected but still seemed normal.

I only finished my period a couple of days ago but started using the opk straight away as my cycles vary a bit (26-30 days). Today (day 8) I got a high fertlity sign. Surely this is too early?

So, we had sex last night just for fun rather than baby making but now I'm thinking should we do it again tonight as I got the high (but not peak) fertility sign or shall we just start doing it every other day until I get the peak fertility smiley face. I don't want to exhaust DH and his swimmers but don't want to miss the window either.

I know this thread is a little old. But I would love to join. I need some advice.

First let me say congratulations!
My husband and I are trying for our second child. After not having any luck and unsure of my ovulation date we bought the CB Advanced Ovulation Predictor Kits. My cycles since coming off BC seem to average 41 days. I started using my kits on CD 12, all blank circles up until CD 16, where my blinkie smily face began. Well, I am now CD 29 still receiving blinkie smily face. I have still not hit my "peak." Have any of you heard of this, or recommend a blog where I can get some advice. Thank you, and best of luck!

How is everybody else?

confused I dont understand sad.

I stopped taking the Progynova and had a bleed today 21st april,

Thanx Dan , BNmum & Charley, I had 1 embryo implanted

and I have 1 frozen one left. I had to test on 14th April , I was

gettin mixed results some tests were saying not pregnant and some

was saying pregnant and the lines were a light colour.

I phoned the IVF LWC clinic and they booked me in for a scan on 8th May.

charleylarlie Wed 02-Apr-14 19:30:43

Ooh, congrats BNmum! What lovely news, glad you're doing well! thanks

Welcome Fidds. Yay for the fixed smiley. Hope it's your lucky month - do keep us posted.

Hope you got on well at your appt on the 28th Business. Good luck!

How are you doing, dan? Any news?

And Owly - how many weeks are you now? hope all is well.

I'm now 28 weeks and starting to feel it. Still seem to have more energy than I did with DS though. Can't believe how quickly it's all going!

We're going to need to start a new thread soon, aren't we?

Fidds Tue 01-Apr-14 21:49:02

Congrats Bnmum on your new addition, i haven't heard about SMEP? Trying the every other day method but not quite always able to do this lol

BNmum Tue 01-Apr-14 21:45:14

Hi ladies, just checking in to say hi & wishing everyone trying this month the best of luck.

I hope it went well on the 28th business, did they transplant any embryos?

Welcome fidds & happy humping, are you trying SMEP?

Any more signs dan?

Have you had your scan owly?

I'm typing this with my adorable 10day old colicky newborn curled up on my chest. Things have been abit chaotic but hopefully visitor numbers will drop off this week & we can try and get into a routine & some kind of normality. I'm counting down the days until we use gripe water for the wind!

Fidds Tue 01-Apr-14 12:13:03

now to get pregnant not not doh! sorry.

Fidds Tue 01-Apr-14 12:11:54

hello my first time posting in here. I've been trying for a few months not to get pregnant but having no luck so decided to try the clearblue ovulation kit (the one with flashing and still smiley faces). It's the first time i've used the kit. I started testing on day 9 and got low, day 10, 11, 12 and 13 i got high and this morning day 14 i got peak so fingers crossed for this month :-)

dan5380 Thu 27-Mar-14 11:23:01

Hi Business congrats on your 2 frozen emby's, they should transfer both of them to give you a better chance. I have also been on Progynova a few times so hopefully they get your lining all nice and thick ready for those 2 little miracles to snuggle in to smile

Best of luck to you, hope this cycle is a success for you.

businessadmin Wed 26-Mar-14 00:51:46

Hi all,

I had my consultation on 25th feb. The doctor said i can try again, wen my period comes back again. My period came on 15/16th march . I had a scan on 18th march , & was given progynova to take. I have 2 frozen embryos. I go bk on 28th march .

dan5380 Mon 24-Mar-14 08:07:02

Bnmum how are you, Has your bundle of joy made an appearance yet? Hope all is well.

Owly How are you feeling, still getting the lovely kicks? wink. You have your scan soon don't you?

Afm: 8dpo today so halfway through the dreaded wait. Nothing to report really, had backache for about 6 days and tender (.)(.) at the sides. Temps are still high but i guess they would be until Af is near and been cramping on and off. Nothing diff to last month apart from the tender (.)(.) grin

Hope everyone is well.

Owlysims Tue 18-Mar-14 08:36:54

Oh Bnmum sorry you're overdue! I went over with my dd...I tried all the things you have said and then I had a sweep...was very painful but I did go a few days later but could have been coincidence would definitely wait a bit later to have one this time as was very painful!! But worth it if it it works!! Good luck hopefully today is the day!!

The 2ww sucks dan!! Try to distract yourself!! Not sure how as it's hard to I know!!

dan5380 Tue 18-Mar-14 08:33:28

Thanks Bnmum, just the waiting game now.

Ahh I bet you can't wait to get that little one out and safely in your arms. Obviously I haven't tried and tested anything smile but friends have tried all of your tips but also hot curries, stair climbing as opposed to long walks, the dreaded castor oil, and warm baths. Hope something works for you soon, good luck

BNmum Tue 18-Mar-14 07:42:24

Hi ladies,
Great to hear you got your fixed dan, fingers crossed!

Ahh! Hearing heartbeats & feeling kicks is magical, it sounds like things are progressing well for you both. How are you guys feeling?

I'm now overdue, not feeling too bad just impatient & overanalysing every twinge. I've tried long walks, pineapple, sex, birthing ball & cleaning. I'm not sure any of it works but it makes me feel better to try. I'd rather I got things going naturally than have sweep/induction but think I'm headed that way. Any tips?

dan5380 Tue 18-Mar-14 07:39:07

Thanks Owly, I'll deffo be symptom spotting I think but not sure i'll have bfp news grin. So used to bfn's now i've changed my middle name to bfn wink

Bnmum hope your well, or as owly says, holding your newborn about now.

Awww that's so sweet owly, I bet he was over the moon smile

According to temps I should be 2dpo today, the 2ww is the worst thing ever confused

Owlysims Mon 17-Mar-14 21:07:48

Great news dan!! Make sure you keep us posted with any bfp news!! And symptom spotting I love symptom spotting I was bloody awful with it!!!

Bnmum hope you're holding in there or better still holding your newborn!!

Hope you're doing well char, business and charley thanks

My dh felt his first big kick tonight through my bump, so special!! Love the look on his face!!

dan5380 Sun 16-Mar-14 18:27:35

Hi owly yes I got my fixed on Friday thank you, so had a busy wknd grin. Ahh thank you very much, 2 more bd's till the smep is finished then the dreaded 2ww begins [hmmm]

Awww I bet your dd loved getting involved with hearing the heartbeat, that's really sweet smile. Glad all is going well for you and not long till the scan, exciting times smile.

Owlysims Fri 14-Mar-14 08:52:43

Have you got your fixed now dan? Fingers tightly crossed that this is your month!!

Bnmum....awaiting your news!!! Hope you're feeling okay!!

Charlie... Yes I did hear the heart beat smile she was lovely with my dd let her work machine and everything was very sweet!!! How you feeling?

Only two weeks until my scan! Going so fast now! And feeling lots of movement which is nice and reassuring!! smile

dan5380 Thu 13-Mar-14 13:54:57

Hi charleylarlie, thank you very much. Congratulations on your pregnancy, hope all is going well smile.

Yes we've tried pretty much everything else including acupuncture so we thought this month and next month we'll go all out and if it doesn't work we'll go for our frozen transfer. Yes it can't come quick enough now, it's definitely needed. Thank you very much and take care

charleylarlie Thu 13-Mar-14 13:42:35

Welcome dan. Nice to have you on board. Good luck this month. We weren't doing the SMEP plan the month we got our bfp, but it was the first month we used pre-seed so hopefully you've got all bases covered! Orlando sounds like just the ticket for a break. Please keep us posted with how you're getting on ttc - got everything crossed for you.

So close now Bnmum. Can't wait to hear baby news. I'm a bit nervous of going into labour this time around with DS to look after. I hope I get a bit of warning as DS arrived in less than four hours and contractions were full on from the start. DP and parents both work/live an hour away and we don't know anyone who lives close enough to ask to babysit since we moved. shock

How are you doing, Owly? Did you get to hear the heartbeat?

dan5380 Thu 13-Mar-14 08:11:01

Haven't done it yet BN afternoon urine is better for me than fmu so i'll know in a few hours smile Oh yes we're so looking forward to it, and yes at stressful times like this you just need quality time don't you with no worries. We're off to Orlando for 10 days grin

Ahhh yes I can imagine you want to stay as close to home as you can and especially with DS to arrange childcare for. Hopefully you'll get the signs and twinges in plenty of time. Do you have a birth plan or just see how it goes?
