    Ovulation cramps but no positive OPK yet

    Iím getting the usual dull pain I get around ovulation time but I did 2 OPKs today; one in the morning with FMU and another one in the afternoon when the dull cramps started and both were negative (well not negative but just a flashing smiley). I donít know whether we should throw in an attempt tonight or wait for a positive OPK so as to not throw off our 3 attempts in definite fertile window, as Iím 3 days away from ďexpectedĒ ovulation. We havenít BD for about a week but DH has been releasing every 2-3 days (he last did 2 days ago). Do I trust my body or do I trust an OPK?

    If timing is important to you, wait. If you don't care about timing, go for it.

    Swaying can very much change O pain patterns though. So it may just be you're getting more intense O pains a little sooner. I often have O pains from CD 3 all the way past ovulation some months.

    Thanks for your reply atomic, yeah Iíd like to factor in a little timing too but also want to get in 3 attempts. So Iíll just wait until the positive OPK. My ovulation pains have definitely become more intense since swaying. Last month I had intense cramps from ovulation all the way through to AF. My AF also started in the morning at the beginning of this cycle, for the first time for as long as I can remember!

    Thank you!! Got my positive OPK this morning so weíll be BDíing tonight, tomorrow morning and tomorrow night. And then weíll try for every day or eod after for a week.
    Weíre so excited!
    Iím just nervous because even though DH has been releasing every few days, we havenít BDíd at all before todayís positive OPK. We havenít dtd since last week. Is there a chance we could miss ovulation this month by waiting until night positive OPK? Should we bd sooner?

    Not usually - it's far more likely to O longer after the positive than sooner, as long as you've been using the OPK regularly. The people who O immediately after the pos OPK are often people who aren't testing very often.

    I tested the night before my positive and it was still flashing then so I think weíre good! We got in our 3 attempts and it all went smoothly we will continue though in case of delayed O.
    Thanks Atomic!

    Hi Atomic! Just an update - Iím 10 DPO and got a very faint BFP!!! Iím trying not to get my hopes up because it was reallllyyyy faint but Iíll be testing again tomorrow to make sure itís in fact correct just wondering though if I am actually pg, which supps should I begin weaning?
    Currently taking the following daily:
    Multi
    Vitamin D (1000 IU)
    Fish oil (1000mg every 2nd day)
    Folate 500mg (1000mg all up between multi plus additional)
    Iron 25mg (for my low iron but that was a few months ago not sure if itís still low)
    Probiotic

    Thank you so much for all your help and support! I didnít get pg the first month when we were ttc my DD (it took 5 cycles) so this is a huge shock for us and weíre still holding back on excitement until we get some darker lines!!

    Huge congrats!!

    I would just continue with all those. Have the doc check your iron and see if you need to continue.

    Thank you Atomic! I got a darker line today soooo itís official

    Okay Iíll have my dr check my iron when I get my blood test to confirm pregnancy.

    Can I stop the probiotics? Only because theyíre expensive lol and the less I can take daily the better. And do I have to slowly wean off them or can I just cold turkey stop them?

    And also should I be switching out the fish oil for pregnancy DHA? Or does it not matter?

    Thanks again for all your help!!
