We aren't really trying... but we aren't not trying I guess... I don't know. I have mixed emotions about the whole thing, mostly I don't want to have to miss any work LOL So... I guess we will see what happens...

Still just seeing one line... If I don't get two lines this time I'm going to start using OPK and taking my temp... it is to stressful to me not knowing what my body is doing. Given that I was in a car accident on the 9th, and super stressed out that may have delayed ovulation, so I could end up being late this cycle for nothing. Normally AF would be due tomorrow so, we shall see. I tried to get pregnant for two years with Veronica, so I am beyond at pro at reading charts, opks, luteral phases sigh...

I am also waiting. After my last baby, I decided not to have any periods, so I started taking Depro. Indeed, no periods - I was happy. I stopped taking them in May and went on the pill, hoping to regulate my cycles. I was the pill for about 3-4 mos. My cycle after the pill has been very irregular, in fact, I have not had a period. I did not know this was going to happen, so I was trying the OPK and never received a :) . I again did not have a period, but decided to keep doing the OPK when I thought my period should have been going off (although it never arrived). Within four days, I recieve a :) and we started trying within 24 hrs. If my period does not come, clearly I cannot use this as a measure of pregnancy. I was nauseous this pass Saturday and have started having cramping like feelings in my pelvic region, nothing dramatic and no period. I thought, maybe this was implantation cramping, but when you are constantly thinking about if you are, your mind can convince you that you are experiencing symptoms that really mean nothing. :(
I will take the test in the next few days since they said the early reponse pregnancy test can detect as early as 6 dbp. My period should be on this coming weeking. I am nervous - I really want to pregnant. So, I feel your pain right now :).

Oh, it took me a year and a half to get regular cycles when I stopped taking birth control pills! We were actively trying at first, thinking it should be simple, and every irregular period was pure heartache. We finally conceived our first three years after stopping the pill. Never touched hormonal birth control again. I was fine on it, but going off was a roller coaster!

I hope your ovulation tests help!
