Topic: TTC - 1st Attempt - Advice Welcomed
This is our first attempt at TTC. We are going to be using 2 ICI vials of Donor 4677. We had planned to start charting and tracking with OPK this month and aimed to start our first cycle in April, but need to start sooner than later so we are going in somewhat blind this month. We will inseminate once with the syringe/propped up/soft cup and once with the Stork OTC. We plan to use PreSeed with both. My wife has started taking prenatal vitamins, FertileCM, and Evening Primrose Oil. She started temping as well, but that probably will be useless for this cycle.
My wife is on CD4, so we shouldn’t have started testing with the OPK yet – but we did. Last night she got a Low and this morning was a High. We are going to test again later this evening. She was supposed to start testing on Tuesday according to the information that came with the ClearBlue Connected OPK. Based off of the app, My Days, that she has been using to track for years – she is not due to ovulate until 30/31 January.
Update: Today is CD5. She got a High when testing again last night and this morning.
Should she be testing high at this point in her cycle?? We are trying to gauge when to have the sperm delivered to have the best chance at success. Originally, on CD1 we thought having it delivered on CD10 would be a safe bet since it would be on a Friday and give us the weekend and the whole next week to try to catch it but with her testing High this morning, it made us question that.
She is 34 years old, which we’ve read affects timing as to when to inseminate once getting the LH Surge/Peak OPK.
We have done a lot of research but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
