Question for ovulation gurus...

Once you start having O symptoms how quickly does your Oday approach. For example, yesterday was CD13 and I had O symptoms. Those symptoms increased today. Do you think I'm Ovulating today or tomorrow or even the next day? I guess my question I'm trying to ask is once you see symptoms when do u count your O day (the next day u will O or maybe it's 2 days after symptoms start?)? Uggh! Hope that makes sense?? Im not using OPKs because I heard people with PCOS are waiting their $$ buying those b/c they might not be accurate. My symptoms right now are lots of mucous, high soft open cervix, maybe a little cramping.

I am no expert but I seem to have the changes in CM, increased sex drive, and sometimes sore boobs for about 2 days or so before ovulation. I hope it's a good ovulation for you!

Thanks, Laurie. I think we have a really great chance this month. We have BDed on really really good days. Our timing has been great. I find it crazy that I may have O'ed on day 14 like a textbook lady! Now I just have to wait 12-14 days to test.
You starting your pills on days 3-7 or 5-9?

Good luck! Let's hope this is the month for you. I started clomid today. If I have a good ovulation, I think this will be the last try since my doctor said he usually gives it 3 good ovulations before moving on to something else.

I hope you have a really strong O this month! I hope it goes by really fast too so you can get that BFP!

I hope this is it for you! I'd notice O to be about 2 days after my symptoms from the charting/temping I did with fertility friend. Sometimes a little before. When I noticed to have more cramping with O it happened fairly quick. Sometimes 24hrs. I know we are all different. Just sharing my experience. GL to you this cycle!!!
