hello. I just got the fertility monitor this cycle. I would like to know when the best time to start doing the baby dance is? I dont know if I should start when the monitor says high fertility or peak fertility.If you got pregnant using the monitor, please let me know when you started the baby dance and if I should baby dance every day or every other day at that point. I Also picked up a pack of instead softcups. has anyone had luck using both of these devices for conception. since I am 37 and my boyfriend is 32, we wanted to try everything we can and not wast time. I already had one negative pregnancy test last month and hope that these new devices will help us get a positive one this month. baby dust to all.

What can I do next?

You should start when it gives the high fertility reading and continue through your peak fertility readings, as well. Every other day is more then adequate to get the job done :)
I only used the CBE Monitor for 2 cycles- it didn't work for me just because my cycles were SO thrown off by a miscarriage a couple months prior. I have a friend, though, who got pregnant every time while using it.
I know it's easier said then done, but relax and just try to enjoy the process! I think I remember reading somewhere that it takes an average of 5 months to get pregnant? Any way, at the age of 23, it took me 4 months to get pregnant with my first son and at the age of 26, it took me 7 months with my second.
G/L and I hope you get your BFP soon!

I have been using the moniter for about two years (I have PCOS though so it shouldn't take you thatlong) Anyways here is what I have discovered from using the moniter and charting my BBT. For example say I get "peak" fertility the one with the circle, on day 14, by day 17 my temp is elevated meaning ovulation has occured and conceiving is no longer possible. So it is right on the money, hit it those two peak days and you should get pregnant quick. Best of luck. Baby dust.
