@alzora - That is really great news! As if TTC weren't bad enough, worrying about finances along with it sucks! That's really awesome that you won't have that worry at least.
@sarahmezz - I always do the digital OPKs. I know they're a lot more money, but the one month I used non digital, I had no idea how to decipher it. It just isn't as clear as that digital smiley face showing up!
@vec - Stay strong! Good luck with everything! Aren't our bodies just SO confusing sometimes? ughTTC #1

Sometimes I feel like I am losing my mind trying to figure all this stuff out.. I am super frustrated.
I wasn't sure if blood I had 6 days after ovulation (which OPK confirmed) was implantation bleeding or my period.. as time went on I realized there was a lot of blood so I guess it was just my period (just 9 days early for some reason)... Now I have no idea if I ovulate 6 days before my predicted period or 15 days (which is I guess the norm).. So my next ovulation day is now a very wide range and my husband is away for work and only home on weekends. I also workout a lot so each month during the 2 week wait it is really tough wondering if I should ease up on my workouts. AHHH!! I am just so tired of the anxiety and waiting and wondering and over analyzing everything from CM to stomach aches..
Crossing my fingers for this month & trying not to think about it too much
Good luck to you ladies.Married to highschool sweetheart, TTC 1st baby

Thank you, everyone!
@Sarah, my Wondfo ovulation tests do get progressively darker. For about two days they turn ALMOST as dark as the control line, but if you look very closely you can see that they are still slightly lighter. But then on the third day I usually get one VERY dark one, which turns dark within seconds of hitting the urine sample. Keep trying; you may get the same thing. But even if you don't get a VERY dark one, it seems to me that the almost-positive ones should be considered positives. Clearly they are detecting more of the LH hormone in your system than the earlier tests were, so that means it is surging.
@December, your attempts to not focus on TTC might actually really help your chances. I would love to learn that approach...I am really going to strive to do the same this cycle. Of course, focusing on not focusing on it is basically just as stressful as focusing on it...right?
@Vec, the 13th is right around the corner. I really hope that your appointment gets you some clear answers and puts your mind at ease.
@Oosoposh, what are you doing to increase your husband's sperm count and quality? Have doctors discovered the cause of his low and slow sperm, or are they still searching?
@Blueeyes, wow, that sounds stressful! Just try to have sex as much as you can when he is around, to keep your bases covered as much as is in your control. I wish you luck with it!
Thank you all for the encouragement to pursue the fertility specialist. I made some phone calls today, and since I am officially on my husband's insurance I was actually able to get REAL prices for things like the consultation and the HSG. The HSG fee is exactly what I expected it to be, and attainable with my mother-in-law's gracious help. The consultation is definitely within our own budget (it's just a small copay), and I will talk to my husband about how soon he wants to do that. He is not eager to get medical professionals involved in our babymaking just yet, but after seeing all of my tears this past cycle he has said that he will do it for me. Since I can't get the actual test done until after December, I don't feel like I'm in a huge rush to schedule the consultation until it's a bit closer, but whenever my husband is ready we will schedule it. The fertility clinic said that they are booked about a month or so in advance, so either way we will not be able to talk to the doctor for this cycle. Our appointment will either be October, November, or December. And maybe having that option in the near future will calm me down and a baby will come during the wait. Either way, I am content.
So how many of us are enduring the boring wait for our next fertile window? Myself, Andrea, Lilysong, and a few of you who aren't entirely sure?

@Alzora - I'm so happy for you! Besides the financial help, I am just so happy that you have such a supportive Mother-in-law!!! It's so nice to have and it makes such a big difference. (Trust me, I don't have it.)
I know that I've moved on to another page, but I keep up on here, and I am wishing so much baby dust for you all!!! It took us a long time for all of our conceptions, so I know how it feels... and if I could make it easy for all of you, I would do so in a heartbeat. Good luck!Mom to Weston Christopher, b. 2008
