Charting to Avoid/Fertility Awareness - July 2010 - Page 13

post #241 of 258
Sorry guys, I was on vacay! Just got home. I'm probably more whatevering/ttc but i'll still do the thread for August (if no hard core CTA's wants to, that is.)

I'll go through and take off all of us who aren't going to CTA and update the first post for August. NBD!

Annie, I hope that things turn out how you'd like

Wow.. it looks like a CD13 O could very well be a possibility. Have you ever had an O that early? Your current temps certainly look like post-O temps comparing to previous charts.

I know, right? In all the years I've been charting I've had one cd11 and one cd12 O but they were both after anov cycles so I don't consider them as really counting. I did have a cd15 O in January, which is close. I was actually expecting a later O since I hadn't taken the maca for a week. Maybe that was it or maybe my body responded to my dh being home.

K-Mom3: Yeah, I know what you mean about having a lot of fertile days. I seem to have fertile-quality cervical fluid practically every day of my cycle, and a long follicular phase. So that gives us, once ovulation's confirmed, about a week of "safe" time (not counting my period) in a 32-36 day cycle. We use condoms too, but if we felt theologically or otherwise compelled not to... it'd be a problem.

Looks like I might not have O'd after all!!

(it kind of felt like I didn't, but I was thinking that was probably just wishful thinking!!)

Nope, doesn't look like it so far, annie, unless that's a fallback rise. No CF data?

Here's my chart. Again, I know technically there's not enough to make a definite determination, but what do you all think? That open circle was taken early. Adjusted, it would be 97.7.

Sure looks like O to me!

MW, could be! Too bad you didn't temp earlier in the cycle, now you'll be wondering for a while...
post #249 of 258
I think I'm going to call it after today's temp. I've got 5-6 high temps now with a complete CF dry up. Whenever I've had more than one patch of fertile CF before O in the past, I've never made to 4 days so I could be safe.



Note: Do not do this if yo are CTA. Very, very bad.

But for you it might be very very good!

Yay, annie2186! That would have been reeeeeallly early for you to O, right? Any CF?

AFM: another short LP for me, . I'm either disappointed because the "free" time is so short or FREAKING out because I'm late. Can't win.

But I've officially been charting a whole year! That makes this my first solid year of cycling since 2004! Woot Woot!

Has anyone offered to take over next month? Annie, are you back in? I really don't want to, as our email is pretty spotty and I never know when it's going to work (it's bounced off a satellite down the street, we live in a cell-phone dead zone and everything) But if there's no one else, I will.

MW - without those early temps, you could have even just O'd on cd18? This will be a nail biter with that big a range!

I know. I've been considering that. The difference is that I had lots of ewcf cds 11-13 and have been mostly dry since. Either way my peak day is still cd13. I'm not sure how important that is to pinpointing O. Not Oing until 5 days after my peak day seems a bit too long.

Going to try to get the Aug thread up by tmw night. Forgive me if I run a little late, just from WOH and stuff this weekend!

Hi again!
The AF has come

I am still new to this charting thing, and I do remember most of my cycles in the past...

This cycle is (like the past 2) have been different.

For this one I had fertile looking mucus in high amounts and I was 2 days late, I had a small temp drop friday, period just started today.

Cramps changed too, normally they are constant with randomly going away and I can take the pain. This time it came in a wave and eased up again fairly quickly, I had to breathe through it and they feel high too (like the last period).
Period still weak and thicker looking. looks like a quarter size amount sense 6 this morning vs. soaking half a pad by now.

Thoughts? This normal, should I go get this peaked at?

Strange having a predictable cycle that moves into an not so easy to understand one so suddenly. Feels like the start of my periods when I was 7-9, those were insane! Like all brown then the next month I am gushing blood! I do not miss those days at all. I miss my old periods, these are strange.

we used condoms all this month when we did it and we did not play that often, so I should be fine I hope. I only charted half this month so I cannot give an ovulation time. The half I did chart i was in the upper 97s and lower 98s.

Have a nice day, Tomorrow starts August!

Lueah ~ I see from your siggie that you had a loss in June. That very well could be the cause of the irregular cycles. Sometimes it takes a few months to get back to normal from that even if it was very early.
post #256 of 258
You think so? then I will give it a few months longer, hope this resolves itself soon. Suprisingly these weaker periods are more painful then my regular ones.
I needs meds for them! Heating pad doesn't help too much.

it is almost august...time flies!

In case anyone else got lost, here's the new thread: http://mothering.com/discussions/sho....php?t=1249096
post #258 of 258
here's a question to put out there. anyone used true NFP, what do you DO doing your fertile time?? to be with your partner? DH said we were going to practice true NFP this cycle and just abstaine during my fertile time, but come day 4 of the fertile time we couldnt' wait anymore!
