So I'm in the 2WW... but I don't have high hopes.
I tested around 6pm each night. and nothing was super clear, except the negatives. and my basil temperatures weren't super clear either.
And I also heard that 36 hours is the optimal wait period... We tried to make it all work... but I don't think we had that much to work with. we tried on the night that I got a first almost positive and 48 hrs later, but the very next morning, we had a negative ovulation test. TMI, I know.
I just don't feel lucky this time. Not to mention, AF is due on the day we start moving. Figures.
Oh, i read an article this morning on sleep vs sperm count. It was entertaining. I texted a picture of it to the husband - he's been staying up late and complaining about being tired. Here's the link:

@taliface- I use the Mobile Mom Ovulation Calculator.
@alzora- glad you’re feeling better!
@sarah- I worried that I would never get a positive on those tests either the first time I used them, but one day it just showed up darker. I expected it to get darker each day; instead it was not there one day then bam! Super dark line! Hang in there.
@everyone else- I’m a bit rushed posting, just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of each of you! Good luck!
Hubs and I have to skip TTC this month. I just finished AF a few days ago and had to go to the doctor because I’ve been having severe cramps and lower back aches and (sorry if this is TMI) blood in my urine. Turns out I have a pelvic infection, and according to my ovulation calculator app, tomorrow starts my window of ovulation. I’m in too much pain to even think about procreating. I’m currently sitting on the couch, wrapped in a quilt and drinking bottles of water as if I’ve been lost in the desert for decades.
Oh, well. Better luck next month.

violetink and alzora, goodeness ladies i hope you two feel 100% better very soon!
AF showed up yesterday, sigh.... but I ordered wandfo strips that so many of you ladies keep recomending! the ones I ordered came with pregnancy tests, which I thought was a good idea since I never seem to have enough patience to wait to test.... those pregnancy tests add up!!! 20 dollars for 50 ovulation strips and 20 preg tests (pretty basic ones though) this will def save money in the long run since getting pregnant seems to be such a lengthy challenge for my husband and I. hopefully they will come in sooner than later.
my husband goes back in for his second sperm analysis at the end of the month. Im nervous. Hoping for a good result. he completly cut out drinking and he got started on some vitamins and floic acid to help the count.this month has been really emotionally hard on me ever since I went into my ttw, in a way im almost glad its over and i dont have to worry about it anymore. Heres to next month!!!Married to my dream guy: TTC #1 since March 2012. Nothing yet, but praying.

Well, today's ovulation test was weird. At first, there was no result, not even a control line. I waited longer than usual, then took a shower. After my shower, there was a faint negative. This is driving me crazy! Next month I'm splurging on digital OPKs. But, hopefully, at the end of the month I'll get a positive where it counts and won't have to worry!TTC #1

The app that I have found the most useful is called the "Period Tracker". I have the Period Tracker Deluxe (from memory was an extra 99c) but the free version (Period Tracker Lite) was excellent as well. The calendar, notes and tracking is excellent and really easy to read and keep track of start/finish periods and you can put a little heart on those days you are "intimate" . I did buy the maybe baby 2013 Fertility/Ovulation one as well. And it was THE biggest waste of money. Crazy price for an app (think may $3-$4) that did nothing - the free ones were heaps better. SO definitely don't use that one. Check out the Period Tracker as I have been really happy with it .....Mummy to the gorgeous Alice Heather and the delicious Harry George
