I am new to the forum and I am trying to conceive our 2nd child. I am going on my 3rd cycle. My question is, what if anything can I try different for this coming up cycle. I alternate between a 28-32 day cycle lately. I just received my period yesterday, making this last cycle 32 days. I used the ovulation predictor sticks and charting. Because I received my period yesterday on 2/16, I am assuming I ovulated on 2/3 or the evening of 2/3. On the morning of 2/3, I also received a positive or LH Surge smiley face stick. The days we dtd were, on all my high fertility days the stick said, beginning January 28th, 29th, 30, 31, 1, 2 and then again on the night of the 3rd after receiving the smiley face that morning. I felt like I had covered all bases with those dates, but here I sit not pregnant. Before trying, I went to the doctor to get checked out to make sure I was okay and all is good there. We had no worries with our first child, who is now 2 1/2. Is it possible that I ovulated late on the 3rd after we had did the deed and missed the egg? What happened to the day before stuff? Some say every day will weaken the sperm, but it is about 24 hours later and some doctors said, it doesn't really matter. I am 36, husband is 37. What can we do different this month?
