Do you chart? How long is he gone at a time? I've got a couple friends whose husbands travel a lot for work and they've managed to get pregnant.

I don't understand how to chart and he is home every weekend but it seems he gets home on the day of or the day after ovulation or he's gone 3-4 days before it happens its just stressful I got a bfn today so I'm guessing I'm out this month as I'm sapoust to get af tomorrow might give it a brake

Get an app - Fertility Friend is a good free one. Buy a bbt thermometer. You can get one at Target for less than $10. set an alarm and take your temperature at the same time every morning before you get out of bed and move. You'll start to get a clear picture of your cycles and be able to pinpoint ovulation much easier. Also Fertility Friend has online classes you can take that will help you understand charting a little better. It's cool once you start knowing your body better.
