.37 temp dip 4dpo, .14 increase 5dpo

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 

Everything I have read says that it doesn't matter what temp fluctuations happen this early on, but I'm still analyzing it and wondering why my temps are so close to my cover line. Figured I'd put my chart up for you ladies to take a look so I can get more specific advice based on my chart. I've read that it has to do with an estrogen surge? So that doesn't mean I'm "out?" It's definitely too early for an implantation dip...

 

Here it is:

 

 

Thanks, mamas!

Wish I could help you phunky.......I'm in the same boat....I think! This is my first month temping so I have no idea! I'm at 6dpo today. Want to be cycle buddies? I have a 26 day cycle practically every month! Good luck to you!!!

Yay!! I'm a 28d cycle & this is also my first month temping. I got a rise today to 97.98. I was surprised it wasn't higher bc I felt hot when I woke, but it's still a good jump from yesterday. Implantation could happen for us at any time now! wink1.gif

OK tmi, but my CM changed to a consistency of EW, but a creamy color. Not sure what to mark that down as on ff???
post #5 of 74
Ironically last night I just read on the education tab on FF (under courses) that you should record the most fertile CM. Even if you had more than one type of CM in the same day.

gotcha! I'm still not sure if I put "creamy" or "egg white" since it's neither clear, nor lotiony :/ Oh well, whatever I mark down I guess isn't going to change whether or not I'm pg lol

 

I had some pre-af like cramps today. Nothing jabbing. Just an overall kinda heavy discomfort in my uterus area.

If it has the consistency of egg white then I would use that but I would also make a note of it.

I had that same "pressure" yesterday. I wouldn't call it cramping but it was almost consistent all day long. It seemed to be more on my right side. I assumed it was the area close to my ovary. But when I actually looked to see where it was hurting, it was actually more centered.....so who knows! lol I think I'm just over-sensitive during my TWW trying to feel each and every sensation so carefully! I seriously seem to start out the TWW fairly sane and somehow end up a crazed woman!

Implantation dip on yours?! Fingers x!
post #12 of 74
Maybe but I have crazy erratic waking times! Honestly I woke up at 430 and temped at 97.70 and then woke up at about 555 and temped again at 98.14 I think. So I had no idea which to use! I went ahead and used the second one because it's closer to my normal waking time.

I read through a natural family planning forum that if you are over your earliest waking time, you should minus .10 degrees for each 30 minutes. If you're waking earlier than usual, then you should add .10 degrees for every 30 minutes.

That seems pretty accurate then! How are you holding up? I got home about 5pm after a three hour drive following a very boring meeting! Oh well, this girl's gotta work! Tonight I am absolutely exhausted! May be just be the crazy hours and travel! But I do have that same weird pulsing feeling in my uterus area. I'm so tired maybe I'm imagining it! Anyway- thinking of you!

Good morning!!

Another temp rise. No second dip :/ light cramps all over this am for about 30 seconds. Probably nothin to write home about, but like you, I'm super in-tune with every little thing my body is doing g right now! I'm also very tired, but that could be pre-wench symptoms for me.

I'm headed into the office and then running to catch a flight to see my honey! He's out of town for two weeks for work, so I'm going today through Sunday to visit him in Atlanta. Wonder if flying during 2ww is OK...
post #16 of 74
Same fatigue for me during the week before AF! (Turning up my nose at her as I type!)

I think flying would be fine! I am one of those people that believes that if it's meant to happen, nothing will stop it. I kept telling myself that women have been having babies for hundreds of thousands of years under some of the most unpleasant/unhealthy situations that they couldn't possibly have any control over. So I think it will happen for both of us when nature intends for it to! Still doesn't help my impatience one little bit!

Here's My Ovulation Chart || Ovulation Tracker today! Another increase for me too but my waking time is so erratic! Woke up at 430 again and then at 6.....temped both times! Used the second one of course because it's closer to my normal waking time.


I'm pretty sure I had a really early chemical pregnancy the first weekend of August. And I was charting so I have been comparing my smptoms to that. Ironically, my cycle days fall on the same day of the week as that cycle! First I started spotting on 9 DPO, which is today and it continued until AF on CD 27. (This cycle was the first that I started spotting several days before AF and it has continued since.) I started noticing severe fatigue and very tender BBS late that evening on 10 DPO or CD 23, which would be tomorrow. So you can guess what I'm looking for!!! orngbiggrin.gif

On another note, completely non-superstitious of course........check this out!

That would be tomorrow! LOL I know.....I'm completely losing it!

Wow we are leading parallel lives! I had a chemical last cycle so I didn't really have high hopes for O this cycle, but whatdya know! Also we both started on 9/26 wink1.gif I'm trying for #2; my son is going to be 7 in March.

No spotting yet over here. I spotted and bled through 8 weeks with my son. More cramps today...giving me hope!

Your chart looks good! Hoping that dip is an implantation dip!

When does a chart go triphasic? It's a third level of temps right?

How many points do you have on the pregnancy monitor? I need to stop looking at it because mine is low at 31 and I know it really doesn't mean anything, yet I obsessively add symptoms then check back to see if it's gone up!!
post #18 of 74
Wow! That's ironic! I don't have much faith in this cycle either because of the days we BD'd, stress, travel, etc.......but I guess we'll see. I don't think there's really a specific time period or day that a triphasic shift happens. My assumption would be that it's only after implantation. Because that would cause an increase in progesterone again?

This is also #2 for us. My DH is 41 and has 3 from previous marriage, the youngest being 16! I have a DD-12 and I'm 33! We are getting old!
post #19 of 74
Oh and my points are 38 on the pregnancy monitor and I have no idea what's low or high! lol

I'm 30 and he's 44! He's has an 8 year old son from a previous marriage. It needs to happen soon before it doesn't happen at all haha

They say 70-90 points are a good amount on the pregnancy monitor, I guess.
