Trying to relax and let it happen

  • [SIZE=2]Hello everyone! I'm back again TTC for the 5th (or 6th) time depending on how you look at it. I'm trying not to get discouraged. I had a dr appt to discuss my situation and she seeemed to think it was just a time issue and that it will happen. We are debating whether or not to get "tested" to make sure that everything is okay, but we have no reason to think we will have trouble. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2]Okay, my confusion lies with WHEN to have sex. My doctor told me to BD every other day starting from day 9. She ALSO told me that, if I am using an OPK, we should bd on the day AFTER we see the indicator. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]So...I am confused because tomorrow is day 13 (which would be the day to bd according to the "every other day" rule). BUT, I also sense that i am going to get my indicator on the OPK tomorrow. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]My question to all of you is, should we bd tomorrow AND Friday if I get the indication tomorrow? I am nervous to bd every day because some people warn against it since it doesn't give the sperm enough time to replenish.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]I know that I am thinking too much about it, but I really don't want another month of disappointment. I appreciate everyone's support and patience

  • wanted to say good luck this month. I really have no experience with OPK's b/c i never got a + but we did bd every other day but i was on clomid so i had a specific time to do it.

    i hope this is your month

  • Goodluck... I used OPK's but sometimes didn't even get a positive... but we always BD'd every other day from CD 12 to 32 or so...

  • Thanks again for all of your advice! I know we'll BD tomorrow since it will be our 13 CD, but I also think I'm going to ovulate on Friday. I'm nervous NOT to BD on both days.

    I'm trying to just relax, but it's so hard!! I want to be pregnant so badly!!! Thanks again!
