    Hi ladies, I wanted to drop in to see what you gals thought about this:
    1st, let me recap my week so far..
    Monday (CD15) I got as close to a positive as I could get on an OPK..
    I had one of those half this day you can still tell it was the same color as the control line but some of it's width has faded..all other OPK's for that day were negatives..
    Tuesday (CD16), Wednesday (CD17) All OPK's were negatives..
    Today (CD18) Had O spotting about 2 hrs ago..
    Researched online to find out if O spotting occurs prior during or after O.. there seems to be an array of opinions but nothing really concrete..from what I could gather it seems to happen during or slightly after but given the fact that it has to come down to reach t.p. or undies it can appear 1-3 days after it actually happens..
    So basing myself on all this it seems that I O either on CD16 or that right ladies?
    DF and I DTD on days 11, 13, 15, 17 and will again tomorrow.. Unfortunately today is not an option..does it seem like I have an ok chance??
    Also (and this is totally off the subject)..the family I met with this week has hired me to start work for them on June 25th..keeping my fingers crossed that it all pans out but it truly seems as though I will be starting my daycare!!

    It does look like you ovulated on CD 16-17 and I was thinking that sometimes BD-ing causes a little spotting,usually that same day or the day after.My Dr. was telling me about that b/c I was worried that I was spotting a bit.Maybe that's what's going on with you too.It looks like you BD-ed plenty,the last time that I got pregnant we only BD-ed 3 times and it worked.Good Luck to you!

    Thx ladies

    We ended up not DTD yesterday (CD19) since we went through a little bit of a stressful day and we were just not in it last night.. and also since it was at the tail end of the TTC week we figured we had already given it a good shot this's OPK (CD20) is totally negative.
