fertility tracker

It's been a while since I've posted about the whole getting pregnant part of this plan. Right now i'm on day 23 of my cycle. My cycles are usually around 34 days so i've got another 10 or eleven days. I've been pretty good at tracking my temperatures this month but it's not very consistent so the fertility tracker i've been using hasn't detected any ovulation this month. I'm thinking about getting and ovulation kit for next month but i've never used on of those before. I would love some advice and experience from anyone who has done that. Is it worth the money?
We are still trying to do this on our own for a few more months. June is our date that we had originally planned on going to talk to the doctor. I had mentioned it to Bobby that I would like to do it earlier but he didn't really react so I don't think it's going to happen. I'd really like to lose that 20 pounds before I go though so I may even wait longer. I've got to really step up my game though. I don't' want to wait longer but I also would love to go to my doctor and show him that i've lost 20 pounds. I'm going to do it! And it's going to be before June! I was telling someone the other day though that i'm glad we had to wait 6 months before we could try because I think we would have rushed into it and it's been good to heal for a while. It's been good to move on. I never thought I would think that.

  1. Unfortunately, temps only tell you AFTER you've ovulated, and then it's too late...unless you figure out your cycle and it is regular within itself...then you would know what day you ovulate each month and can anticipate it. So I would recommend an ovulation monitor, too. It can detect the LH rise in your urine and tell you a few days before ovulation, and ovulation day.

    Funny though, I used one to get pregnant with Xander and it still took 6 months to conceive. I don't know how much they cost, because mine was a free loaner as part of the EaGer Study. Having a hard time getting pregnant and already having 2 miscarriages, I enrolled in the study at LDS Hospital. They give you all the equipment and you get several early ultrasounds too.
