Working Through the Confusing World of TTC

I found a cool website full of useful (and some not so necessary) info on everything ttc related from reading OPKs, pregnancy tests, recommended books, etc. She shows real pics of OPKs so you can distinguish a +/- from those two little pink lines. For me this was an awesome find because I have many times thrown the little peed-on-stick in my husbands sleepy face at the wee hours on the morning demanding the all important answer, "Which line is darker?!?" to determine if I am ovulating. She also talks about the different levels of sensitivity in different HPTs and some of the known issues with some tests are such as known false positives or disappearing positives are negatives. So any of you trying to figure out the craziness of ttc check out


  1. Hello! You commented on my blog recently and I wanted to find out more about you! I have just been getting to know you by catching up on your blog. Thank you for your sweet comments and can I say that you will be in my prayers. My son is 4 1/2 now and is such a blessing in my life. My doctors encouraged me never to try to get pregnant and told me that woman with less than 50% lung function could not carry and deliver a baby. My lung function was below 30% when I got pregnant. My doctors suggested aborting but I believed and despite going into early labor, I had a wonderful pregnancy and a beautiful labor. I hope with everything that you get your miracle too and if you EVER want to ask me anything, please feel free. My e-mail is: God Bless, Sharlie

  2. Thank you so much for posting this. I'm checking out the site now! :) I'm buying OPKs next cycle if I don't get my BFP this time around.

  3. Sharlie- I would love to ask you some questions. I will e-mail you in the next few days. Thank you!!! I will put inhaling hope in the subject line so you will know it is not junk.

    Mrs. Murray- OPKs are helpful and I think are a great thing to pair with charting. I buy the cheap strips instead of the ones that look like pregnancy tests, but sometimes it is SO hard to tell which line is darker.
