    Our RE has "prescribed" BDing every 2-3 days. Apparently you do not want to go over 3 days as the sperm starts to diminish in morphology, he gave us heck for Sean's last SA being 7 days without, I was sick with the flu so it was not happening. The doc said that with waiting longer you get more sperm but not better quality.
    That is really interesting. I had no idea waiting longer would give you a lousier quality...

    Luteal Phase, or how long you have from the time you ovulate until the time you get AF.

    Well I think I am about to O tomorrow. I took the clomid cd 3-7 and tomorrow is cd 16 so thats not bad I guess. Read my post about freaking out thinking I wasnt going to O for more info, I tend to freak first think rationally later. I think ttc is slowly driving me crazy or more crazy than I was anyway. Still no EWCM and that is just bugging the crap outta me. I have gotten pg pretty easily in the past we have had several oopses (that we were overjoyed about). twice it took one month ttc, and once it took 5 mos after my 2nd m/c. With all those times excepting the time after my 2nd loss I had EWCM for at least a day. Even when not ttc on the mini pill earlier this year I had EWCM but since we lost our little Noah in April none. My MW says she has no answers and that its possible to conceive w/o it but I just keep wondering if that is what is taking so long this time. We are using preseed again this cycle as we did last cycle though dh hates it. I am also taking EPO and trying to drink lots of water. That is one thing that is different from past times ttc I did drink more water then I have to make myself do it now. Soo heres to hoping that we catch that egg w/o the aide of EWCM tonight or tomorrow!

    Margaret I had no idea about the 2-3 days thing either. I will have to make sure if we dont get pg this cycle that we do that next one. We just do every other day starting around cd 9/10 till the day after O.

    I had no idea either. I was doing things like you, every other day around ovulation time. I have learned so much from my RE.

    UI didn't know that either, told hubby today as well so hopefully if that is an issue we can fix that, he's also been told he can't drink alcohol and if it doesn't work this month then he will be on zinc next month because I think that is good for swimmwrs, i'm sure i read that somewhere.

    My dh doesn't drink much coffee he has one cup a few mornings a week maybe. I did however make him cut down on energy drinks he loves those things. I've not read anything specific about them but they are filled w/ sugar, caffeine, and weird herbs. I have him drinking water at work now which he isn't thrilled about but will do it for a baby. He doesn't drink alcohol hardly at all either maybe one to three drinks on the weekends. I wouldn't think that would inhibit anything. My MW did say to cut down on the hot baths too he is weird for a guy but likes hot baths instead of showers now he has to make them cooler if he wants a bath. He gets his SA this month sometime the paperwork is at reception at my OB office he is very apprehensive about it.

    Hey Ladies - CD 14 here.. no signs of O.. Watery cm but no ewcm, no O pains.. No progression of darker lines on my opks either..

    How are you all? Do your lines get darker? If so, starting from what day? This is frustrating..
