They do look like they've gotten gradually darker. How often are you taking them and at what time of day?

Mine last cycle (first cycle after mc) were almost positive from CD 7 until they finally went positive CD 17. I didn't take any early this cycle, just yesterday and it looks dark but not positive. My first cycle after my mc in March was that way, too, with every test being dark, but went back to normal the next cycle. I would think means that this cycle seeing that dark means I'm close, but I can know for sure! I've had ewcm since yesterday, so I'm guessing I'll get a positive maybe tomorrow.

Does the fertile cm contain evening primrose oil? I haven't used it, just heard a lot of people do. B6 also helped me with cm, but I stopped taking it because I think it was pushing O back for me. (I'm actually not sure now if it was... It may have just been my body getting back to normal after a few months of the IUD being out). If you decide you want to give it a try, start with 50mg a day and don't exceed 100. The cycle I thought it was affecting O I had jumped up to 75mg a day.

And yes, I was afraid of trying vitex because I heard a lot of people had it do weird things to their cycles!

Ok, also don't buy the tea from Amazon! I just looked at her lore's website. (BTW it looks like there's lots of good info on there that helps you narrow down what products you should look into). The tea is $12.95 on there! I'm sure you pay shipping, but I can't imagine it's not than a few dollars. https://www.herblore.com/products/pre-conception-tea

Absolutely! This site has been my sanity! My name is Becca, if you are using the phone app and can't see my signature. ;)

As for the opk's, when they go positive, they do it pretty quickly, so hopefully you're closer than you think! I bet we'll be pretty close this cycle. :)

Yeah, they'll fluctuate depending on the time of day and solution of your urine. LH itself is produced in the morning, so it does kind of ebb and flow, it's not just at a constant rate all the time. Do you have any other signs of impending O? I had so much ewcm yesterday, not today almost nothing, more creamy. I've been so busy getting stuff ready for my son's birthday and house guests this weekend that it would actually be more convenient for it to hold off for me lol.

Aw, bummer. I have had several cycles like that and often it's still not far off, just not as close as I thought. At least you have clomid available to try if you need it!

I had tons now ewcm last night and a pretty dark opk, but they've been dark for two days and just not quite positive. So maybe today or tomorrow I'll get a positive? We went ahead and bd'd last night since the ewcm was present. Now we'll do every other day until I get a positive, then do two days in a row. With my luck, I'll get my positive tomorrow and we'll have to BD the two nights we have my in laws staying with us which always just feels awkward to me, even though they're on the other end of the house!

Haha, yeah luckily our only kid is still in a crib and *usually* doesn't wake up after we put him to bed lol. The new pack of opk's could be the reason your later ones are so different from the others. Hopefully it's soon! I'm pretty much expecting to get my positive tomorrow and to O on Sunday.

I guess I was wrong. I should O on Saturday, which means only one night of BDing with family in town lol.

Yeah, I could never bring myself to spend that much since I go through opk's like nobody's business lol. But I also get ewcm before my opk and I don't O for 2 days afterwards, so I'm usually able to time BD pretty well on those alone. But when you don't get that heads up beforehand and then O right after, the advanced ones are certainly handy!

Hopefully your cervix is up because it's getting ready! What was the texture like? Is it softening up yet?

Haha yeah, I know there are things that can delay it, but I'm not aware of what might bring it forward other than medication!

Aw, that's frustrating. And yes, we all need to just go with the flow, since we can't control any of this anyway! But it's easier said than done!

Pretty sure I've O'd... I still had some O pains this morning, but they're gone now and I've got a decent amount of watery brown spotting. The last time I had ovulation bleeding was my last bfp cycle. It's supposedly a good sign to have a little blood around O, so I'm hoping it's good news!

Aw, sorry. Hopefully things move along for you soon! Any cm yet?

And yeah, about the bleeding, I looked it up when it happened last time because I had never had it happen before and it was a good amount... Like when AF starts, but then it dwindled off throughout the day. Everything I found said it's a sign of a strong O, so I'm hoping it's a good sign.

I normally do temp, but I haven't been for awhile and it's honestly been sooo nice not having to worry about it. I had planned to temp around O but I was out of the habit so I kept forgetting. I have enough cycles in the books that I know my pre and post O range pretty well. This morning was still low and I expect tomorrow will go up... If I remember to take it. ;)

Yes, I do have experience with B vitamins. B6 is the one that lengthens your LP, but you should take b12 along with it for absorbtion. Keep taking your prenatal, as the amounts of B6 you need are waaaay higher than what's in there.

It's ok to take them all cycle and b6 can help with cm, but be aware that why it works for lengthening your LP is that it supports progesterone and suppresses estrogen. So if you choose to take it all cycle, the potential exists for it to suppress estrogen enough to delay or prevent ovulation. This is rare, but it can happen. Also because you are taking it at a very high dose, it can build to in your system after a few cycles. That means it can take a few cycles to see benefits as well as side effects you don't want.

To start, take 50 mg of B6 a day (you'll have to look up how much b12 to go with it... I forget) and no more than 100mg. You can take it during your LP only if you'd like and there's no reason to stop taking it if pregnant. In fact, they use high doses of B6 (up to 200mg a day I believe) to help combat morning sickness. It's one of the natural ways to help with that, so it won't do any harm if you get your BFP. I did read that if you're on it into pregnancy, you should ease off over the course of a week or two so there's not a sudden drop in progesterone.

Ah, gotta run, but let me know if you have more questions. :)

Ooh ewcm is great! Even if you only saw it briefly, that can mean there's more up around/inside your cervix where it's really needed. It seems like your body is trying to O. Hopefully it happens soon!

I don't have much going on... 3 dpo today. I did temp briefly just to confirm O, but I plan to take the rest of the tww easy. I need to lose weight so I've been trying to put my energy into that endeavor. I took a break from that for the last week, but I'm starting over today. I'm hoping it will keep me busy enough to not obsess over symptoms. ;)

Yayyyyyyy!!! And yes, I believe so. I think the flashing smiley indicates estrogen has surged, which means you are likely a day or two away from your LH surge, and around 4 days from O. Get busy!
