Yeah, sort of, but then not really. A lot of people seem to get confused by the pinpointing O thing, especially when CTA. It seems to throw them off and can cause an oops. So, I decided it was better to focus on when temps and CF show that one is safe rather than if/when one Oed (since temps can only pinpoint O to within 3 days anyway).

never seems short to me. She's always on the longer side for me. We're going to Lake Marion in South Carolina. It's not far from where we are, only about 4 hours driving. My mom got us a timeshare so it won't cost us much extra money, just the cost of any extra gas and activities we do. There's a full kitchen so we won't have to eat out constantly. I wanted to go to the NC mountains but the timeshare there was full.

My temp today was 97.8, so I don't think I did O yesterday. All my O symptoms are gone now though so I'm not convinced. Would my temp definitely HAVE to be up today if I O'ed yesterday? Can it take a little while for the temp spike to kick in, like if I O'ed in the evening or something?

Yes. According to TCOYF, it can take up to 3 days after O for the temps to reflect it. That's one reason I was saying before that it's better to think of when you are fertile and not rather than trying to pinpoint O to the day.

Your cd8-11 temps are really high. Is there any reason why they would be unusually high?

That stinks about the temping. So I really can't feel too confident that O wasn't yesterday. I'm still getting spotting though, so maybe it'll be today.
I'm totally confused on the temps. My coverline is usually 97.3, always was unless something was throwing me way off. I guess I may not be sleeping as well because of a back injury I'm recovering from, and some stress because I lost my job due to that injury and now we're really struggling. I don't feel awful about it though, so I really don't think it'd throw me off. All I can think of though.

Smylingeyz ~ Those temps look really high to me. I'd be inclined to ignore them because they seem so out of place. That's a lot to ignore, though, so I wouldn't ignore them to the point of thinking you are safe before it's very obvious.

Ok, ya that's kinda what I was thinking. I'm almost thinking I should rely mostly on CF this month since I don't know why my temps are crazy. I don't think I can trust them. I've never gotten higher than 97.7 before O before.

Dear Body,
This is no longer funny. If we're not pregnant, how about a little spotting or something? Throw me a bone, here.
Love, Beth

P.S. Seriously, I just spent an hour ransacking the house for my $ store HPTs -- I KNOW i have two around somewhere.

Beth: Calm down! I think there's a very good chance you didn't actually O until CD 19. Is your LP usually 11 days?

It really varies, I've had 4 cycles at 11 day LP, 3 with 13 LPs, some 12s and 1 14 day LP

But wouldn't that be worse if I did O on CD 19 (?)-- we dtd on cd 20.

Beth!! It's ok! would a baby be the end of the world? I am HARD core avoiding and I would still be ok with a baby

I promise, relax and if anything go get a cheap test tomorrow
post #631 of 654
secondly - isn't it a LOT harder to conceive AFTER probable O than BEFORE? makes sense to me......

No, babies are great -- god knows we're lucky with our family situation and really could have another with no trouble. . . I just REALLY don't want to yet

Found my $ store test - BFN. But I guess if I DID get pg on CD 20 then I'd only be 11 dpo -- still, it would probably show, right -- there's not even the faintest of faint lines so i can relax, right?

( I know, you've been saying to relax but I'm now officially at my longest LP ever, and 3 days longer than average -- it makes me cagey (especially since I just got a Diva Cup and wouldn't THAT be ironic?)

Yes. The egg only lives for 12-24 hours after O, right? I don't have my book so I can't look up the exact timeframe. It takes a few hours after O for temps to go up so by the first day of the temp rise, the egg is most likely dead. A pg can happen but it's very unlikely.

Beth ~ 11dpo is early for most women to get a BFP. It would be very unusual if you were pg and did not get a BFP at 14-15dpo. No matter how I think about your chart, I think it's correct. The much longer lp is strange, though.

AFM, I got crosshairs! I'm going to post both my charts so you can tell me what you think since FF and Ovusoft gave me different O days. I think it's rather humorous. I've got FF set to Advanced.

MW - I'm inclined to think FF is right based on CM...but I dunno. Are you willing to say that low temp is a fluke from the ibuprofen?

Ladies - I Just realized it's July already! I've been spending all of my spare time sleeping latey (when I'm not at work) and overlooked the fact that July would be here mid-week. I generally like to go back through and verify everyone has been added, I am not going to have time to do that today though.

I will start the new thread up (working on it now), please if you are new can you please make a post in the new thread to be added, and if anyone has any details they need added, again please add it to the new thread and make it nice and bold so I can find it.

Sorry again, the exhaustion has set in.

Onwards to July

Nope, I'm more likely to say the higher temp was a fluke. I put more importance on temps than I do on CF.

OK, ladies. Someone really needs to step up and take over this thread for the pregnant lady. Who is it going to be? Don't make me come to your house!

I'm more likely to agree with CD 22 as O date for this one, my CM doesn't always show O when temps do so I agree with placing the importance on temps rather than CM.

If someone will step up and take it, maybe we could swap out - I'll make the new thread July Part1 and then partway through the month we can have a July Part2. Just

Can you PM me your email address? It's not terribly complicated but I do have an excel file I can send you to track things.

Wow. Fancy, schmancy. When I did it, I just copied and pasted the format from the first post.
