Help. I am confused on ovulation

We decided last month to start trying this month. I have been tracking for several months to get my mind around it and be prepared. The only tracking I have done has been watching cm, checking cervical placement, and seeing how long my cycles were. They were ALL 29 days and I always ovulated when fertility friend and mymonthly cycles said I should. However, this month I started one day earlier than normal (June 2nd). One webiste says I should O on June 16 and the other on the 17th. So I bought some OPK's and took the first one two days ago. Obvious negative. The took two yesterday and the test line was getting much darker. Took another on just a bit ago and the test line is just as dark as control line, I think. Is it possible to O earlier this cycle than I have been? I have watery, almost ewcm (it stretches but not as far as what I usualy have when I think I am ovulating). Cervix is high and open. So all the signs are there, but we are trying for a boy (I do realize it is not 100% and God will give what is best) and that means we need to bd on day of ovulation. So we do not want to do it too early. What do you ladies think? Any ideas? I will try to edit this in a few minutes with pics.

I never understood tracking it.  I think it causes more stress on the body and makes it harder to get pregnant.  Just stop using protection and have lots of fun.  That is what we did and got pregnant right away.

My friend tracked for 6 months and she finally stopped tracking last month and just had fun and she just found out she was pregnant in Friday. I agree with this. Relax and have lots of fun and unprotected sex :)

It's actually been shown that the sperm all travel at the same rate and live for the same length of time.  So it looks like you're fertile - go have fun!
