Welcome, I'm pretty new here too and on CD 3. We can be cycle buddies :)
We're trying for #2 and coming on our 3rd month trying as well. I'm starting Clomid this month too, since I'm not sure I ov every month, and I successfully conceived my daughter on it. Anyway, I have not tried the clear blue monitor but was tempted when I saw it at CVS! I use OPK's and have started to temp as well. Good luck to you this month! How long are your cycles normally?
Trying for #2 since Jan 2012.

I could definitely use a cycle buddy!! My cycles are a consistent 28 days!! I didn't use OPK's last month and just thought I'd go with it and not put too much pressure but the month before that it showed I hit my LH surge on CD 17 but I'm pretty excited to use the fertility monitor! Good luck to you as well!!!

I'm on a 30-day cycle, but last month hit my LH surge on CD 16, so we should be fairly in line together! Unless, the clomid mixes things up. Oh, and my dad is visiting us on my most fertile days this month, ugh, doesn't help the mojo to have dad right down the hall!

I actually started drinking grapefruit juice this cylce - you're supposed to drink it until you ovulate to help your cm. I'm also going to use preseed. I also heard that green tea helps as well, I just can't handle the taste of it. I asked DH today if having my dad in town would hurt the mood and he said "yes!" But, I reminded him that we conceived our daughter when we were visiting his family :)
