Hy... Am new here, me and my husband are trying to start our family, for last few months I have started tracking my dates and tracking when I start ovulating As per whattoexpect, - Many women use ovulation predictor kits, which identify the date of ovulation 12 to 24 hours in advance by looking at levels of luteinizing hormone, or LH, the last of the hormones to hit its peak before ovulation. I am super excited to start this new phase in my life. Is any one using predictor kit ??? Please let me know!!
