so this is my first month using it, and im cd 18, and normally O late in my cycle, around 19 or 21..but it still says low and today ive got a bunch of ewcm, Which normally goes hand and hand with me O'ing soon.

so do you think its messed up since its the first month and doesnt know my cycle, or do you think that i should relax and trust it and probably get a high reading tomorrow morning...?

Ive bd'd yestaurday night and this morning, so just in case..but its almost making me go buy an opk...

 first, are you using fmu?  It is super important to use fmu since the monitor doesn't just detect lh, but also estrogen. 

If you are using fmu then I would just give it time.  It is likely you thought you were oing on those days but really weren't.  When I first started using mine (in 2005, lol! for my first son) I oed SIX DAYS AFTER I thought I was oing!  Got pregnant first time using my monitor :o)  GL!!!!!!

 Just keep doing what you are doing!  I know it is so stressful!  If you want, you can order the internet cheapies off amazon - then you can kinda gauge when it's coming by if your test line is getting darker, but sometimes that isn't really accurate.  Mine get almost dark, then dissapear, the come back until they are +, lol, it's so confusing!!

If its your first month it's still getting to know you. Next cycle (if there is one) will be more accurate.

My first three months of using the monitor I went threw 20 sticks a month but this month only 10 I'm in my 2ww started today. But with my fist cycle it went from low to peak the next day it skipped over high. But I was thinking because that was my first month off of clomid. So I ovulated early. But its been pretty good after it hits peak around cycle day 16-18. So don't worry if u end up using more sticks then it says this is my fourth month using it and I'm finally using 10 sticks. Best of luck with it.
