Re: TTC/3T Check-in

  • well AF just finished up today and I'm finally feeling like TTC again.  So lots more BD in our future for this month.  I will have to use OPKs this month only for an accurate progesterone test around CD21 - other than that no tracking.

  • Hi there :) I'm new here - husband and I just started trying for our first after the New Year!

    Has anyone ever experienced not getting their period but also getting a negative pregnancy test? My cycle is pretty regular but I got off BC in November, so I'm thinking my body may still be adjusting. Also, if there are any tried and true preferred brands of pregnancy tests or ovulation tests, please let me know! Thank you :)

    Where are you at in your TTC journey? 
    • Just started the TWW for this cycle. We hit amazing timing, so I am trying not to be too optimistic, but I am hopeful

    Any testing coming up?
    • Will probably start testing at 11 or 12 DPO

    Anything good or bad happening? (TTC wise or just in life..)
    • Nothing really good or bad on my end. Week is going to be a busy one though

    FFC/AW of the Week (no rules):

    One and half weeks until my one week vacation...so excited!

  • Welcome @FutureMrsMerati! Rule of thumb (that I've heard) is that it can take up to a year for cycles to regulate after stopping BC. Hopefully, it's sooner for you!

    I used the Clearblue Easy digital OPKs and then eventually switched to the little handheld device that you tracked cycles more longer term (very expensive). Others here have used cheapie OPKs with good results as well. 

    Either way, GL!

  • @FutureMrsWright2012 - congrats!!!  I think that's a great number for a first beta.

    @FutureMrsMerati - when I used them I would use clear blue easy digital and wouldn't actually test until CD 12.  But since you are off BC then maybe you should test earlier so you can catch it.
