TTC round 2

Unfortunately the first two week torture ended in a BFN (Big fat negative) after a crying session, I quickly got over it and we did the deed again. With it being our first time trying I learned a lesson that using iPhone apps to track your fertile days is a big NO-NO! Last week I bought the Clear Blue Easy Ovulation kit or OPK (Ovulation Prediction Kit) and found out that I was actually ovulating last week so I am now 5 DPO (5 days post ovulation) my period is expected to start on Tuesday June 17th so please keep your fingers crossed that AF (Aunt Flow) doesn't show!

I never realized how stressful or involved TTC was going to be. Last week was complete hell, and I'm so glad I did my research because this time around I'm not symptom spotting or worrying if I am or not preggers! We're just taking it one day at a time now, and praying that God will bless us with the opportunity to start our little family.

Products I'm loving right now is the Clear Blue Easy Ovulation Test Kit, Palmers Stretch Mark Lotion, and Wondfo LH and HCG tests.

I have really loved using this, there's no guessing you can easily tell if you're ovulating or not.

I wish I would have started using this rather than the iPhone apps.

The Wondfo LH (ovulation test) and the HCG (pregnancy test) are the cheapest for women TTC and hate waiting or spending $40+ on the top of the line test. I bought these off amazon for $25 and go 50 LH and 20 HCG test.

I only use these to confirm, but if I'm getting a positive I will confirm with either the Clear Blue or First Response. 

Has anyone else Ovulated a week before their period?


  1. Best of luck to you! We started trying last year. Each negative was so upsetting we actually stopped trying for a few months. We started trying again and got that positive a few months ago. Keep trying, it will happen!
