AM OK you know what? I am sick of this. i need this to end. Now. If you check out my chart today, you will see I had a temp drop... to where the other, second set of higher, lower temps are, lol. What does any of this mean? I can't count on yesterday's temp as accurate cause we got to bed so late at 230am, and I am sure that disturbs temps somehow. Soooo if it is still down tomorrow I will count myself out. If AF shows I will have a 6day LP. But if AF doesn't come I will know I never O'd. None of this explains my steadily rising temps the past 18? 15? 5? days... why would they even do such an obvious shift/progression if ovulation never occurred... as far as i know your temp rises AFTER ovulation, not during attempts to ovulate... progesterone make it rise which is not released until egg is released. But if I am wrong, somebody correct me.
Please pray for me that this insanity sorts itself out. Oh I do have opks and hpts coming in the mail this week, so naturally i'm gonna pee on some no matter what my temps do just to see if I can learn anything.
Tara, gosh, I hear you on the confusion. I hope it clears up for you soon. I'm am a beginning charter, so my thoughts probably aren't worth much, but I agree with other's who've said CD86ish looks good for O.
Also, something I've wondered that might impact what you're seeing- breastfeeding increases progesterone, so could you (and I, unfortunately...) just be seeing temp spikes from progesterone rises related to bf'ing?? (I bet someone knows the answer to this, so sorry if it is a dumb thought...)
Hope it clears up for you soon soon soon.
