Not sure if this time is just wishful thinking again

i know it is prob much to soon to see if i am preg... But i would like to know a few things from anyone that has experienced or can speak about there experience... I was wondering if anyone has used the ovulation tracker and has become successful at becomming preg.

Now I have been using this ovulation track for about 13 months and for about 7 months we have been trying to follow the most fertility on a monthly basis. For example: March period started on the 24th ended on the 30th, my fertility possibles started on the 4th - 11th the highest fertility was on the 8th of april, we had sex on the 1st, 5th, and 7th , 10th, 17th  and got my period again on april 22nd - 27th, fertility was from 2nd - 9th and the highest on the 6th, we had sex on 30th, 3rd, 6th, 7th... i am just getting very frustrated with the waiting, my bf lives about an hour away so when he is with me we try as much as we can.... i would just like to hear some experiences, for hope.....

Hi Christina,

I didn't know about our ovulation trackers here at the time :( but I did keep track myself on my calendar and we had luck finally when I stopped drinking coffee, made a few dietary changes, and tried on the day of ovulation.  My cycle is 28 days usually but some women can be 30 or 31.  So you might want to make sure your cycle length didn't change...but if you have been monitoring it for this long you probably are aware of any changes right away.  So my LMP was January 9th, ovulation for me was on January 23.  Most fertile days was 20-25 and we conceived on the 3rd day---- hope this helps somewhat.  I tried to lessen my stress and in about 3 months things happened.  Keep us posted :D

I don't know if this will help or not but I looked at Trying to Conceive topics on here and also looked up ways to increase my fertility.  I was amazed at some of the things that I was either ingesting or taking that lowered my fertility levels without even knowing.  Coffee for me was a huge thing, that lowered my fertility along with taking the occasional tylenol or allergy cold medicine.  I stopped all of that and started taking a prenatal vitamin to get my vitamin stores up.
