Great timing but still BFN...what are we doing wrong?

Great timing but still BFN...what are we doing wrong?

Description:
I'm heavier than I was before I got pregnant with my 1st 2 kids. We are trying for baby #3. I have noticed my CM has been rather unpredictable so this month we tried "Pre-seed" and as you can see, It didn't work. With my first 2 pregnancies someone told me to try Mucinex to make EWCM and apparently THAT worked because I got prego almost immediately. I'm wondering if that's the best formula for me to get a BFP, because the Pre and Pre seed might be too much, I'm thinking. But, I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong, possibly? with the timing? Also, this month I tried drinking Green Tea, there's some info that says that helps too??? I don't know. this was the 3rd month trying this time, and 2 online chart.

It could be that your timing is a little bit off...unless you are trying for a girl....you and DH need to BD on O day and it appears you were one day off.  KEEP TRYING!

I am pretty sure I ovulated by noon on O day. we did the BD really late tuesday. (almost 1am) so I really should have the heart on wednsday. but, I have a feeling we BD'd too many times in the days before, maybe the sperm count got a little low. I feel like maybe next time will hold off a little and try to get closer to O day. I thought I was going to O sooner because last cycle it was around CD 17.

smep you should

+bed every other day starting cd#8

+til first positive opk

++then u bed 3 days straight skip a day and go bac to every other day until u r 100% sure you have ovulated

I am on cd 19 today and my bedding pattern is similar to yours. if i dont get bfp this cycle my july\aug cycle i will follow smep to the teee.......  good luck

okay. that sounds good. I'm not familiar with a lot of the BD'ing practices. with my DD we lucked out and conceived the 1st month we charted after ONE BD! with my DS, we tried for 10 months and the first month I charted we conceived right away. So, I guess I'm not sure how to do this The proper way. Thanks for your help. I will post next months chart BFN/BFP.

Might just be me... but I'm wondering if you're not ovulating strong enough (not much of a thermal shift). Extra weight can effect that... I'm not sure how much more you have than you did before. Do you have charts to compare to from lower weight?

The BD looks like it's timed perfectly!
