Two week wait is here

Fertility Friend pinned ovulation 3 days ago. This was confirmed by the OPKs and a teperature shift as well. We managed to make our attempts only once this cycle because of too many adventures at home. Mainly from our dear darling dog who presented us with a nice ripe groundhog that she was lovingly burying in the couch. How she managed to get past both me and my husband with this is still amazing to us, but when one is doing laundry and the other is doing work then the dog can sneak past. So our desire for children was overridden by the foul smell and frantic cleaning of the living room to prepare for the company coming over the next day. However, I will say that Nature's Miracle is worth its weight in gold. It actually removed all evidence from the couch in less than 18 hours. Not even my white glove mother in law noticed anything. And she notices everything. So now we wait and see. Maybe this'll be the month. However, I'm not going to let myself get too hopeful. Or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

She's arrived, that monthly non-friend of mine. Nothing like getting your period on the day after Mother's Day when trying to have a baby, right? At least it wasn't ON Mother's Day. I think that would have just added insult to injury. The OPKs are ordered. They should arrive within the week. Here's to hoping for this cycle.

OPK decision

After reading the comments and suggestions left by everyone, next cycle I'm going to try the Answer OPKs. This cycle I picked up a set of first Response and CBE Digitals. Both were negative, but there was a temperature change. Now I'm really confused because I'm not sure if there was ovulation or not. The temperature spike leads me to believe there was. The lack of a positive on the OPK suggests there wasn't. I'll be doing the Answer ones twice a day next cycle and we'll see where this latest development leads.
