This cycle I've been taking B-vitamins to support a longer LP length, which seems to be working as I would have expected to get spotting yesterday or the day before and AF today (13dpo). My LP was 10-12 days in previous cycles (depending on how pre-AF spotting is counted) so I thought it might help to take the B-complex.
My normal bbt during the luteal phase is around 98.4-98.6. The strange thing is that my temp fell to 98.2 yesterday (making me think that AF was definitely on her way), but today was back up to 98.6! I have never seen this before, in the past when my temp dropped, it stayed down and AF came along that evening.
I really don't think I'm pregnant. I ovulated earlier than expected this cycle so our BD pattern wasn't that great (O-1 and O +1). But on the positive side, thanks to grapefruit juice/robitussin I had noticeable EWCM before ovulation for the first time, so maybe there is a better chance because of that?
I have no particular symptoms other than tender, full feeling breasts (normal for me in the LP) and these vague crampy feelings which I would expect just before my period. I'm 31, we've been ttc for around 7 months and this is my third cycle charting temps.
Anyway what I'm really wondering about is whether it's normal to have a temp dip and then rise and still not be pregnant? Has anyone experienced this?
I am very reluctant to POAS because my intuition is just telling me to wait it out. FF told me to test today but because I am expecting a longer LP this time I am holding off. But considering the temp fall/rise, maybe I am being overly cautious?
My chart is here if anyone wants to have a look:
