Since I stopped taking the bcp in July, I haven't O'd any earlier than CD27, which has meant at least 6-week cycles.
Now DH is on night shift for the next two days, and I won't get more than 5 mins with him at a time, and pretty sure I'm going to ovulate today, CD16!!!
I took a break from temping this month, but on a whim took an OPK last night and immediate positive, same again this morning. Based on previous months, I will ovulate today.
I'm kind of thrilled that my cycle is sorting itself out a bit, but can't believe I've missed it! We did BD on Sunday night but I'm not sure that will be enough.
So annoyed at myself
sorry for the whinge.

5 mins is all it takes, or why don't you go home on your lunch break?

Sunday is good! The 2-3 days leading up to O are apparently more successful anyway - good luck!

Thanks ladies for your replies. I don't tell DH when I'm ovulating anymore.. The one time I tried that, he got all nervous ... Poor thing.Bonnybabe, you were right
Happylife, I'm counting on that too!
