So I finally started on cd 38, and since my cycles are a little crazy I was wondering which one you would start with. Not really wanting to spend the money on opks but I am really wanting to see when and if I am ovulating! Which would you recommend?

BOTH!  Lol. OPKs can tell you if your are surging but can't tell you if you ovulated and bbt can tell you that you have ovulated, but it can't tell you if you're about to.  The combo is the best way to go.  You can find cheap OPKs on Amazon.

Both for sure if you're trying to conceive. If you are just verify that you ovulate and have regular cycles bbt is enough. Opk's let you know that you may ovulate soon while bbt confirms when you already have.

Ugh hahaha well just found out that my husband will be out of town except for weekends for the next few months. So hopefully when he comes home on the weekends we can catch it.
