Does this sound like an ok plan?

So, DH and I are going to get serious about trying for #2 next month.  My periods can be anywhere from 29-32 days.  I've never done BBT or OPK's.  My monthly calendars are contradicting and the fertile time overlaps.  And I know that they are just an estimate.  But I was thinking that we could have sex every third day of that period and then maybe a couple nights in a row of that predicted O time.  Sorry if this doesn't make any sense.  I'm just nervous and excited and hope it happens right away.  If not it will be ok, but I'm just really excited!!!!!!

What is the Wondfo, is that the brand?  New to this.  We didn't "try" for #1 ;)

my cycles are anywhere from 29 to 32 days lately and apparently I am Ovulating later than I thought so I have decided to bed every other day starting on the 21st and ending when I know I have ovulated or I get AF or a BFP which ever happens first! :.)

I do chart but I don't temp. I tell by my body signs. O pains cervical mucus and cervix position. The last couple months I haven't had o pains though and my cervical mucus hasn't been as "fertile"looking as usually and I am kinda worried that I may have stopped O. I am hoping its just that I have been Oing out of the side that I don't have a tube on and that for the next couple cycles I will O outta the tube I do have.

If you want to keep it simple, I'd suggest just bd every other day during this cycle. You will keep sperm count high but fresh and wouldn't miss your fertile window. Try this for 6 months see what happens. If nothing, start with opks.
Good luck

Ok, I think I'll search for those opk's.  I guess it's pretty easy since so many of you ladies do it.  But it seems kinda hard and stressful to me.

I like this idea too.  ;)  less stress
