Ovulation date?

Postby hoping4bbj » Mon Sep 19, 2016 12:13 pm

Hello ladies, Was hoping to get some insight on which date I may of ovulated :D DH is finally home after a couple months away so we're back on the TTC train. Want to make sure I've covered my basis.

CD 13: Watery CM, Neg OPK
CD 14: Watery CM, Neg OPK, BD
CD 15: EWCM, Pos OPK, BD
CD 16: Watery CM, Pos OPK (at 1pm), Neg OPK (at 8pm), BD
CD 17: Watery CM, Neg OPK, BD, Temp low
CD 18: Creamy CM, Temp rise

My question is did I O on CD 16 or 17? I thought I would O on CD 16 but when I didn't see my temp rise substantially on CD 17, we BDed again. Of course, by that point we were super tired from all the BDing (LOL - this is what happens when you get older). Should we continue to BD today(CD18) given this is the first day we see a clear temp rise? Thank you, ladies!! And baby dust to all!!

I have always thought that once you see a temperature rise it is usually too late to bd (of course it never hurts to continue). Your temperature rises 12-24 hours after the egg is released and the egg lives for 12-24 hours. It lookes like you were able to get in several days before so if I were you I would be happy with the chances for this month. Good luck and baby dust.

You o the day before your temp rise so looks like your bd was good. Your o would be cd 17. Good luck :)

cd17 for sure if you had creamy cm and a temp rise...especially if it is sustained for 3 days or more.
