lactatinggirl - I rarely have 3 hours of straight sleep before temping. My "set" time for temping is 6:00 am (though if I need to go on to the next cycle, I'll switch it to 5 because that's when I get up for work now). When I wake up at night, I check the clock. If it is within 2 hours of 6:00, I will temp and then adjust by adding 0.1 degree F for every half hour before 6 or subtracting 0.1 degree for every half hour after 6. If you look at my chart this month, the temps look stable to me. You'll just have to try it and see if it works for you. What's important for me is that I temp as soon as I can after waking, and if it hasn't been 3 hours, it doesn't seem to matter.
sraplayas - my sore nipples (I call them my fire nips) coincide with my LH surge (I can tell because I also use OPKs)--and with my fertile CF, CP, etc.
ms_quoted - I am so very sorry. It's just not fair.
I am 14 dpo and getting very faint lines. Thursday and Friday, the lines didn't come before the time limit, but they definitely showed up. This morning, they came within the time limit but are still crazy faint. Once they leave squinter territory, I'm calling it.
