Attached2Elijah: Good luck, I hope all the swimmers make it safely, so the eggie has many to choose from!
Sourire: Nice temp jump indeed! A little early maybe?? but a good sign of things to come.
just_lily: It's great that you're having a long LP this cycle. I choose to believe that it's also good that you're getting the CM - I had the same thing just once a couple of days ago, and decided it was a good sign. Although when I put it in FF, it made my O-line dotted. So I took it back out.
As for that test, still really early!
Gator-mom: It's still early to test, my FRER tells me that only 78% of pregnant women will get a positive when they test 4 days before their expected AF. And that temp jump looks hopeful. I don't think you're out.
yellowdart: Good job not testing . . . you can hold out. I just assume it's going to be a bfn, and that makes it easier. Why would I want to look at a bfn? I'll just assume that I'm pregnant anyway, but that it was too early to test, so why waste the money (especially since the only tests available in my town are $11 FRERs)?
jojobean: That does look like a nice temp jump. I would have included it too, most certainly. Even if it has nothing to do with your pregnancy, it is still what your temp was this morning, yaknow? And thanks for asking about the links, I used the info too.
AFM: So I woke up this morning at 7:10 (one of my rooster crows every morning just then) and took my temp, like usual. I usually go back to sleep after and sometimes I don't wake up at all until 9, so my times are pretty irregular. It was much lower than it has been . . . below my coverline. So I took it again
I know, but I couldn't help it. I took it twice more and averaged the three. It's still really low. So I figured that I had double bad news, that I was out for this cycle AND that I have a short LP (this is my first month charting or even paying any attention). I managed to get back to sleep, woke up at 9 in the midst of a truly terrible dream, the kind where you wake up and you've been crying, and took my temp. It was higher, but the time was off by more than the first one, so I shouldn't use that one. Then I went back to sleep so I wouldn't have to face both AF and that bad dream together. But now I don't have AF or even my usual day-before spotting . . . I would be certain that she was on her way tomorrow except for one thing - I'm constipated. I ALWAYS get diarrhea the day before AF. I'm pretty sure that has been absolutely constant in my life since I was 13, 17 years ago. I can eat a diet consisting of cheese only and still have diarrhea before AF - I know, I've tried it. So, what's up with that? And it's not the prenatals - I've been taking them for nearly a year with no change to that pattern.My chart
Any thoughts on that? Could it possibly be an implantation dip? I've been feeling crampy on and off for a few days, but I didn't think too much of it, that's pretty normal for me pre-AF.
