But I also think this info gave me a false sense of confidence. I have tracked every single baby-dance (remind me to think of a new term for this!) for the last 14 months. If we BDd within 5 days of getting an egg on the CBFM or temp rise since I've been charting, I felt like we were successful. Sure, we tried to do it more often than that, but it didn't always work out. Mr. GG and I have definitely had at least double the amount of sex in the last year compared to the previous year.
"Let's just do it tomorrow..."
Here's the problem with our timing; my cycles have ranged from 27 to 40 days during those months. For the first few months I wasn't using the CBFM or charting temps and we probably quit too early each month. During the CBFM phase, I don't think it was accurate; therefore, we again may have quit too early. Since I started charting we've done much better, but life gets in the way some times.
Bottom line: It is absolutely possible that Mr. GG and I have mis-timed things for an entire year, just by accident!
I think my fertile "window" is on the shorter side. So rather than 5 days, I think we've got more like 12-24 hours. Last month, we hit it. This month we did too.
1 dpo today. Fingers crossed.
