blah!!! Hating OPK tests LOL

I am soooo tired to staring at the lines and comparing the darkness. My cycles had been 32 days, last cycle was 48 days which I chalked up to stress because my car was totaled in an accident... well, I'm on CD 21 and I have not gotten two dark lines yet, which means that this is going to be another longer then normal cycle... I have a 12 day Luteral phase, so I should really be O'ing like today LOL This is only our first month of actually trying, but I guess I'm flashing back to the two years I spent trying last time with my ex hubby and all the heart breaks every cycle until I finally got pregnant which just ended in huge heart break. Sigh

yeah, I hated those opk kits after awhile too! Some ladies get into taking their temps and rating their mucus as well, though I never did, but I've heard that can be more precise than the pee.

I used to do the temp thing, I'm still not getting two dark lines of the OPK, so I don't know if I just missed or if I haven't o'd yet. I'm tired of TTC already.

I know, ttc is exhausting and nerve-wracking.
For what it's worth, I found evaluating my cervical mucus to be best method for me. I did not do the OPK tests, but tried taking my temp and that just about drove me crazy! :)
Stay strong and keep your eye on the prize! :)
