My First OPK

Yesterday I took my first OPK.  I'm not sure why I never got around to taking one the last few months since I've been off the pill.  I think I might have just been scared of the results.

Sorry about the poor quality.

The line was a little darker in person than it was in this picture.  But this gives me hope for this month.  Actually seeing that line and knowing that I (hopefully) ovulated is a good feeling.

Yesterday I also decided that I would start charting my temps.  I purchased the digital basal thermometer from Fairhaven Health.  To my surprise it was on sale from $11.95 to $8.95 and I found a 10% off coupon online!  A few months ago when I bought Fertility Facts from Conceive Online, I also bought The Fertility Journal.  It has areas where you can chart everything, so once I get my thermometer I'm going to start using that as well.

I'm about to enter into my 2ww, so that should be a fun time.  I'm definitely going to need something to distract me!  Good luck to other 2ww ladies!

Good luck!! And don't let charting get to you. It can be very stressful at times but what about TTC isn't stressful? Good luck!!! you can also use to chart it figures things out for you :) but then again it can get annoying too lol.

Good luck! I like charting because it helps distract me a little from my 2ww, but at the same time it can stress me out if I focus too much on the day to day little rises and drops. :(

I'm so excited for you!! I love tracking temps, for some reason it makes me feel better when I know exactly whats going on.
