LOL! Yep, same here, not pregnant. CD 16 and gearing up for O, possibly soon. Do you suppose our "oops" rate will go dramatically down for a few months as everyone freaks out about all the pregnancies we just had?

If you're up for it and she seems to need some education, use it as a chance to educate her. All the doctors I've ever told (hmm, ok that's one doctor and a midwife) have not really thought anything of it. The midwife just warned me it might be difficult while breastfeeding.

MW, maybe we'd better take it offlist! Wanna get together sometime the week after next? It'd probably be easier to hash through in real time, anyway.

I don't mind getting together IRL. You could bring your book for me to skim, although I might get offended. Maybe you could just mark the pertinent points irt charting.

I think it's ok to keep in onlist here, too, though. This is a FAM/NFP group. If you have the time to send me a quick list of your abbreviations and what they stand for, I can add them to the front page.

Whew to all the not preggers! We made it through the rest of March without any oopses. I think there were only 2-3, depending on whether or not you count the one who got pg in February but didn't find out until March. (I'm way too technical. )

Well, I'm very certain that I am safe now. I had a ton of EWCM correspond with when FF said I O'd and yesterday I was dry, at about 4 dpo..

I hate to be a downer, but I really don't think you can be certain w/out more temps pre-shift. It's possible to go from EWCM to dry w/out O!

Yes!

MW: Let's plan on getting together. I'll continue on-list also, but I'm not going to have much computer time over the next week.

That might explain why FF sometimes sets the CL lower than I would. Maybe they've incorporated the LTL rule from NFP into their software.
I doubt that is why, b/c if they set a CL at the LTL then you'd only need 1/10th for a shift. :

LTL: low temp level (basically 1/10th below FAM's CL)
HTL: high temp level (4/10ths above LTL)

ok, I'm getting back into my groove. CD16 officially and seem to be gearing up to o. I've just come to accept that my previously textbook perfect CF is no longer and that its this new thinner version of it. (sorta wish I could say that about my weight ). But the new thinner CF is definitely there and has a slight stretch to it. So we're gearing up. Glad I called it "condom zone" the other day, because looks like we're in it. Im putting more narrative notes in my FF so I can look back next month and say "hey, it was just like this last month" or something.

But look where FF puts my CL if I change the O detector to Advanced and put those 3 high temps back in. It's in between the FAM CL and NFP LTL. They use their own rules for confirming O with the Advanced detector, maybe some sort of combo between NFP and FAM. If I set the O detector to FAM and leave in those high temps, FF says it can't confirm O. If I leave it on FAM and discard those 3 high temps, FF puts O on the same day but the CL at 97.6.

Just for the heck of it, I put the 3 high temps back in on my Ovusoft chart, too. It moved my O to cd33 and my CL to 97.8.

Maybe Advanced is using the average of your pre-shift 6 (97.5333)?

I think an argument can be made for O on CD 31 or 33.

Yeah, I'm pretty certain it was cd31 but it could've been a little later.

I am still here! I am going to start TTC after one more cycle. CTA has worked great for us so far though!

Pretty sure I'm 1dpo today. DH had a momentary bout of panic the other day and is scheduled for a vas. consult for the 10th. I am eagerly counting down the days.

Great! Let me know when to add you to the graduates list.

CD 27 here and everything has dried up. Today would be 4 days past my peak day, but we DTD at 2. We'll see.
post #34 of 313
Got AF today! Exactly like my PP cycles after my other 3 kids. Late O, and a very short LP, usually starts at 6 dayLP and lengthens from there.

Great! Are you going to start temping every day now?
post #36 of 313
Woo hoo! 3dpo! I o'd earlier this cycle (though still later ). However, when I put in this morning's temp it actually fought me on it. I had to manually mark a temp as disturbed. Here's my chart Does that look right? I'm pretty sure that temp was disturbed when I took it but I can't quite remember.

Oh I totally forgot! I had a funky dream last night that I know you all will appreciate.

So in it I had a md lp estrogen surge (see where this came from ) and when I put into FF the ewcm it popped up an alert at the top. It said, "Due to recent changes in your chart we have detected a possible mid-lp estrogen surge. The following dates would make it possible: cd9, cd12, and cd24/5dpo. Since this is the first time FF has noted these changes we cannot determine with 100% certainty. This information will be filed away and if you have this happen again your charts will be marked accordingly."

: I thought FF was soooo cool then. They sure are on the ball.

Lol, OMM, FAM dreams...I had one a few nights ago that I checked my cervix and it was low, which confused me for awhile when I woke up because a) I wasn't going to check my cervix this cycle and b) I'm definitely in the fertile time so it shouldn't be low! Then I figured out it was a dream. You know your life is filled with excitement when you're dreaming about Fertility friend...or your cervix...

I usually have dreams that I'm pregnant.

CD33 here and still riding the roller coaster of my temps. I had some odd CF today; similar to what Heather described last post, a mix of creamy and EW. Cross your fingers and toes that means I'll O soon!

When do you check CP? Mine is always high first thing in the morning, but it usually gets lower as the day goes on. How do I chart that?
