  • DPO=days past ovulation
    BD=baby dance
    BFP=big fat positive pregnancy test
    BFN=big fat negative pregnancy test
    OPK=ovulation predictor kit

    Track your periods using Fertility Friend or any fertility tracking website. If you decide to take your temperature, make sure your purchase a BBT thermometer, take your temp EVERYDAY at the same time, before your get out of bed. When there is a thermal shift, ovulation will be detected. If you'd like, purchase OPKs and use from cycle day 7-18. When you get a positive OPK, time your intercourse accordingly.

    Good luck!

  • From experience, may I suggest being 'aware' of everything but not focusing on it. Have fun, be a couple, enjoy one another, let nature take its course, however you put it...being too technically aware can spoil the mood and create stress that keeps the exact thing that you want from happening.

    Best of luck!
