hopefully it will come about soon. I'm sorry my chart is night and day from the last one and I recently had an IUD removed.

I must say I learn a lot from just reading through this thread! It's all new to me so I'm not chiming in on other's charts because I'm still fairly clueless.

I know exactly what you mean! I end up watching everything with a glazed look. lol. You guys have it down!
post #305 of 432
glad I'm not alone I know everything has a learning curve...

I had a really vivid dream last night that we dtd w/o being careful... I hope it was a dream, or my DH might come home from Costa Rica in a couple of weeks (he leaves on Mon) with a crazy surprise. Those kind of dreams are pretty normal though around O time right?

Shannon: I've noticed EWCF once but it wasn't even before I O'ed. I have only charted two cycles so far and always just have creamy.

Thanks everyone else for confirming that it was probably and annov cycle. The bleeding seems to be slowing down after just two days also. I usually bleed for 7 days, with the second day being the heaviest.

Be aware that you can O anytime after an anov cycle. There's no first 5 days.

My first full cycle after having my mirena out was about 60 days. I was losing my mind, trying to figure out what was going on. At the time, I thought it was because I was still nursing a bit (and it may have been) but everything was so textbook this last time that I now think it might have been my body kind of settling into the new order of things.

AFM, cycle day 3 again, loving how the Divacup has reduced the cramps and misery that used to be part of my . Loving how charting told me exactly which day to put my cup into my purse, knowing I would probably need it before the end of the week. LOVING how this is giving my husband some peace of mind about when we have our next kid.

Wondering if he gets that I'm going to be dictating when we have sex when we get around to actually trying.....

AF finally started sometime early this morning accompanied with awful ridiculous cramps. I'm so glad it's Saturday, I see a nap in my future.

Just as I had gotten over the cold and things in my cycle started picking up, I think I'm coming down with the stomach thing my 2yo has. My stomach starting hurting a little yesterday, which has gotten worse today. My 6yo had been complaining that his stomach hurt for a day or two and then he got sick last night. So, I think my turn is coming. Ugh! I don't know how it will affect my cycle at this point.

I am thinking we're safe

i think I've confirmed O -- anyone disagree? Although I think I really ed on CD21

I agree cd 21 is more likely O date, Beth.
Well I am back with some more temps in my chart and more confused than ever! LOL
I was here earlier, wondering about 2 temps potentially to discard because of illness when I took them. Well I left them in and now on Advanced setting I get CHs (dotted) for cd13 which is when I originally thought I O'd given my history of chart patterns and the CM etc....but then there is a more obvious thermal shift (taking into account the 2 wonky temps cd 7 and 8) for O on cd 17. I am sure I O'd but when? I gave DH the all clear on cd17 when FF gave the CHs on cd 13 without discarding any temps, but then thought I'd play with the settings (why do i do that!) so when i saw the CHs change when i had it on FAM I panicked slightly. That would mean we dtd ON O day?? I wouldn't care per seh....
Here's my chart

Beth ~ Yep, O on cd21.

HJ ~ That's a hard one. I'd have to go with cd17 for safety's sake. O could've happened on cd13 based on CF but it's not clear from temps. I can see a thermal shift after cd13 if you discard those two high temps on cd7 and 8 (the sick ones?) and use ROT to ignore your cd11 temp. Your CL is certainly high enough. I just don't feel comfortable discarding that many temps, especially when your first few possible post-O temps are the same as the cd11 one. PG is most often likely from sex the day before and the day of your peak CF. So, maybe dtd on cd17, even if that was O, won't be such a problem since your peak CF day was 4 days earlier.

My Ovusoft chart is telling me I'm infertile even though it can't detect O. It's basing this on day counting even though I had ewcf yesterday. OTOH, my FF chart makes it look like I may have the beginning of a thermal shift.

Beth: Yup, CD 21.

HJ: I say O on CD 17.

MW: Hope this is your shift! And I hope you don't get sick! If you've started a shift then you've already O'd and the illness wouldn't mess things up.

AFM: AF today, so it looks like I did manage to catch O. My chart. I did expect AF today & even though I can't pinpoint O exactly my LP was at least 12 days.

Yeah, I'd say CD 21 too.

And I agree that if I HAD to pick an O date for HJ it would be CD 17, but that is one confusing chart!

Thanks. My stomach is killing me and I feel awful. I'm definitely sick. I was thinking the same. If that is the beginning of a thermal shift, being sick now won't delay things anymore. A cd22 O isn't great but it's sooner than many of my other cycles so it's still ok.

Hi ladies.

Sorry you are sick MW. Seems to be going around.

I am thinking this cycle is either going to be anovulatory or have a late ovulation. I'm having no O pains which are normally in full force by now, and my CF is only *barely* creamy, sometimes alternating sticky. Normally I'm already having really creamy and/or watery by now. I really feel almost "infertile" this cycle.

Tell me about it! LOL
Have I already said before that it is so unfair to have this many charts under my belt and still have to guess!! LOL
SO is it possible that my body geared up to O but because of my illness it was delayed longer than usual and thus not giving me my other "normal" fertility signs like CM at O time? I have never ovulated later than cd 15 before (well, in the year of charts I have).
post #319 of 432
HJ, with that big temp dip on CD 12 paired with the fact that the higher temps pre-O were awfully close to AF leaving (I find it takes a few days for temps to settle and I'm lucky I have enough time for them to settle since I usually O closer to CD19). I think I'd be tempted to agree with FF and say that CD 13 is the most likely. Now to keep the temps and keep it by the books and true to FAM it would put the coverline at 98.2 or.3 and that wouldn't PROVE O until CD 17, but if I had to guess the most common sense O date, FAM rules aside, I'd say CD 13.
post #320 of 432
feeling silly here, but my temp this morning was lower than I expected -- am I still safe? My CL this cycle is so much lower than usual -- and this temp is lower than I normally would have after O.

Plus, yesterday's high temp was after getting up to take DD to the potty, so I don't know if it was effected. . . should I wait for tomorrow's temp, or is it a safe shift?

I REALLY don't want any surprises right now. thanks, ladies!
