We have been trying for our precious #3 but it seems harder because my periods are only 1 1/2- 2 days each month. Taking the temp does not seem to work for me because I forget before I get out of bed. I wish there was an easy way for me. Could anyone give some advice? Thanks so much!!! Very Happy

My average cycle is 31 days the last 2 months. I have reg cycles, at least for the last 2 months...lol. Everything these days have been revolving around the last 2 months. It took us 4 years to get pg with our youngest daughter who is now 16 months old.

You normally ovulate 14 days before the start of your next period. So you should ovulate some time around calendar day 17. (cd from the first day of your last period). You may want to invest in some ovulation prediction kits. You could start testing for ovulation a few days before and begin dbing (sex) every other day until after you have ovulated according to your opk's.

You should also start taking prenatal vitamins if you are not already doing so.
