Ok,I have 6 cycles under my belt now but I am not sure about this.
For the last 6 cycles I have always had AF for 4 days.This cycle I bled for 8 days. Does anyone know if this could affect my o date this cycle?

I have felt like that Two days know.. And it is the same for me as you I have no fever, My period is due today or Sun.. My Temp has never been as high as it was today and i just might think that it has to do with something I have. But I have to say I have been going pee allot more then usual.. But Really I dont think it is anything, Still in the Waiting game... Today after lunch I have felt no sickness~~ So what ever I had is all Better!!!
Hope you get to feeling better.
This was my chart today.. I have not updated it on the GIO days just my Temps.

I had no idea. It makes sense though. Thanks

I have O'd! :

MarineWife, aren't you kind of hoping for an oops?

CanidFL: Hope you are feeling better!

I don't mind FF, although I know I should paper chart as well, it just seems to fall off the priority list when a little person keeps trying to grab everything. At the back of my mind I keep thinking I'd like to go to Ovusoft, but it's not feasible financially right now.

to all the new people!

Yes. I just don't know what to make of that. Should I record it as ew even though it's sooooooo early in my cycle or is it just leftovers from dtd? :

How much does Ovusoft cost now? I think I paid $35 for it but that's just a one time fee. Once you have it, you have it. They do come out with upgrades every so often that you may have to pay for if you want them. You don't have to get the upgrades, though. It's just like any other computer program.

I don't mind FF, either. It's a bit annoying that you can't put in vag sensation and there's no option for semen obscured CF. I do wish I could permanently hide the new Pregnancy Monitor at the bottom of the chart page. I don't need to know my pregnancy points when I'm not ttc.

Ovusoft costs $39 right now, which isn't much. (I thought that was yearly, not forever) However, we're on a really tight budget for the moment, and it's not going to happen.
post #829 of 944
I'm asking for Ovusoft for my birthday present.

I have declared my temps as a true case of erratic temperatures PP. My DH is taking me out of town on Jan. 5th and I'd like to know if AF is going to be coming BEFORE, DURING, or AFTER that. : Crossing my fingers that it's BEFORE.

High temps, dotted crosshairs but not fertile cm??

Hi ladies,

I got dotted crosshairs Fri, FF says I o'd on cd18. I haven't had the ewcm at all like I did last cycle. My temps have been up though, can I o without the ewcm??

When I bought it it was a one time fee for the s/w the same way you would pay only once if you bought Quicken at the store. It's been a while since I bought it, though, so things may have changed like they did at FF.
post #832 of 944
I use Ovusoft and it is a one time fee. And you can switch computers as long as you keep your confirmation number handy.

I have a question regarding spotting vs. light period. I had my first PP AF recently and it was normal the first 3 days then it became very light. Only had slight blood when I wiped, none on my panties/ tampon was dry. Now do I chart that as light period (it came at the end of my period) or spotting? It was still red but like I said only when I wiped and not even every time. Also my temps. seem to fluctuate between 96.5 & 97.2 pre -o is that normal? I've never used temping before only CM & CP so I'm kinda new to what is "normal" temp range as far as the space between numbers. I thought you temps stayed a little closer in the same range pre-o and then had an obvious spike after O. Maybe I'm mistaken. Still learning.

I would call that spotting, although it probably doesn't matter much at the end of AF. I think those temps are pretty normal. Maybe a bit on the low side but not so much that you'd need to worry. My temps go up and down a lot.

I somehow completely forgot to take my temperature this morning!

And today is day 17 so there was a pretty good chance of a temperature rise today... but then again, my CF has been all over the map, so this might end up being one of those longer cycles.

I'm still perplexed about what to record for CF - when it's stretchy (to about 1") but not clear, ie looks more like "sticky."
post #835 of 944
EWCF can be cloudy. (Mine sometimes is)

Forgot to take my temp this morning too, the power was out during the night, and DH reset the clock wrong so that I thought I was getting up at 5am, but it was really 7am. I was very upset with DS for wanting to be awake til I found out!

I noticed on your chart that you've taken a couple of tests. testing at 6 and 7 dpo isn't going to give you an accurate result. I don't know if you know that or not, or if you just like to pee on sticks (I do, but an expensive habit unless you are using internet cheapies or $tree tests). The egg generally will implant around 7 DPO (sometimes later, sometimes earlier) and it takes a few days for the pregnancy hormone to build up in your system. If you wait until 10 DPO there is more of a chance of the test being accurate, and even then, the line may be very, very faint. You can get a positive at 8 DPO, but it is pretty unusual. If you ovulated later than usual, you aren't going to get your period on time. Usually, your period will arrive around 10-16 days after ovulation.

here's some information (it is not complete and you need to read a book or take a class to get the whole picture)

on the menstrual cycle
on the hormones of the menstrual cycle
more info on the menstrual cycle

hope that points you in the right direction

Hi ladies,

We are still on vacation and I'm not charting. I should be but we aren't dtd since it's a family thing and we are sharing a room with my sister and BIL

Thanks for the thoughts on my situation.

I'm still feeling sick but I refuse to take a hpt. I just can't see it happening since I got AF and a temp drop.

Whoever asked about multiple OPK...yes that is common in PCOS. Your body can prepare to O a few times a cycle and when the eggs don't release they turn into cysts. Last time I had an ultrasound, I had 50 cysts on each ovary

Have a great holidays ladies.

luvmi2kids ~ Did I mention that I think the O day FF gave you is wrong? I don't think you Oed until the day after, cd27 with a CL of 97.6. It's only one day later but that will affect your likelihood of being pg and when you might get a + hpt.

It's official now. I have changed my mind and am now not hoping for an oops. I'm a bit upset right now. My dh told me last night that, after his 6-7 month deployment this spring, he'll only be home for about 2 months before he has to go somewhere else for 5 months. It's really stupid. He's being sent to a Captain's career course even though he'll have already been a Captain for 3 years and will be in the process of being promoted to Major. He's also already taken a career level course for his tenure as Captain, which is a requirement of the Marine Corps. Apparently, though, some high up idiot has decided he's got good potential for a career in the Marine Corps (duh) and that taking another career course will be advantageous for them.

The 5 month move is considered a permanent change of station so the whole family would be expected to move. If we don't (which we won't), we'll either lose our housing allowance for where we are or we'll have to pay for dh's living expenses where he'll be. That's going to put a serious strain on our finances since our housing allowance doesn't fully cover our mortgage payment as it is. Oh, and did I ever mention that he just got home from a year long deployment at the beginning of this year? He'll have only been home for about 13 months after being gone for 13 months when he deploys again.

By the time we're back together after all of that we'll both be 40. I don't want to have another baby and take care of 2 other LOs on my own for a year. I also don't want to have any more babies after 40. So, that's that. I'd be happy and excited if an oops happened but I'm not hoping for one anymore.

to you MarineWife. I am going through the same thing right now. DH just got home in Sept. Jan 4 he has to check into a school for 4 months. THe school is kind of pointless for the job he will get promoted to (1stSgt) as it would be for his MOS if he decided to be a MSgt. When he gets home from that he has to go to his Advance course (just like you DH Captain's course, I'm guessing) that's like 2 mo. There are a couple good things about these schools though. His unit is deploying again next month. Their Marines have only been home for 5 mo. He would be going back if he wasn't going to this school. He will also only be about 2.5 hours away so we can go see him on weekends or he can drive home on weekends. That still leaves me alone during the whole week, which is hard. I hate being alone. I don't mind caring for the kids (of course) but I just get very lonely. Anyway, enough complaining about the lovely Marine Corps!! Just wanted you to know you're not alone!!

FF changed my O date....

This gets a little confusing now. I haven't had the same cf or cp this cycle as last one and it's really confusing the crap out of me. Without those things it's hard for me to guess when I really ovulated. I haven't had any cramping around the time FF says I o'd (either of the 2 days they gave me) and I had very noticable cramping last cycle the day of O. If I was a pen and paper gal, I would give up on this cycle!!!

Any guess to my O date???
