    Red face how many times?

    hello there, i was just wondering does it matter what time dh and i ttc whilst i'm ovulating? does it make a difference if we ttc in the morning or night time? is there a better time? and also is just once a day enough? these opk kits drive me nuts as the line is not quite as dark as the control line and i just get too confused so i figure we will just try everyday while there is some sort of line there! is that the best option do u think?

    I used an opk this time and my dh was doing lots of overtime at work, so the only time we dtd was the night before I o'd (I had gotten a line almost as dark as the control line that morning) and it worked! Usually i would suggest the day before and the day of O, but we just did it the once cos of night shifts...

    Good luck!

    Dtd before the surge is good... assuming spermies are healthy they'll hang around for a few days so will still be there when you Ov.

    Good luck!!!

    from what I have read, at least 2 days before O and one day after.
    For the best oportunity, as soon as you start to get EWCM you go for it each day until it stops.

    oh me too!! but at least i know that i have hopefully covered the important days and dtd so much really made me more relaxed about it and not so padantic about whether we are doing it enough lol. now i think i am on the 2WW... its not so bad so far.. give me another few days and i might be a lil curious i am starting a new job this week so hopefully that will take my mind off the whole waiting game and time will fly and HOPEFULLY a BFP will show up!
