LOL, I think she was saying that she got her PP AF back three weeks ago, not that her birth was three weeks ago.

So I have spotting this afternoon, but I am only 12dpo and usually my LP is 14-16 days! I did O later this cycle (no chance I O'd earlier according to temps, but CM could say otherwise?) I thought LP was more the consistent factor. jsut ebcasue I O'd late shouldn't mean my LP is shorter should it?
My Chart

ETA -I guess I did have one cycle where I spotted on 13dpo and started AF on 14dpo, so i guess 1 day earlier isn't that unreasonable. I guess it would be too late for implantation spotting.

Congrats to the new BFP graduates!!

I had my first pregnancy related dream - I'm taking it as a good sign. I picked up some Maca and some Baby aspirin today. Progesterone at the ready. Temperature charting has begun (I've just done OPK for the last year). FRER and internet cheapies in waiting. Potential EDD is my dh's birthday. He was born on his daddy's birthday. I was due on my daddy's birthday (but born 7 days early).

OH! lol ....well you never know

AFMI am actually a little hopeful now as a few hours later I was out walking and suddenly felt really wet down there, so when I got home I checked and it was a lump of the spermies that had fallen out...so it seems like some did actually get inside the vagina...? I know I definately wiped myself clean before leaving the house, so I know it must have been some from inside!

Could I possibly have a slight chance now? That was a sign the sperm was actually inside right? ...just maybe not very far inside, but they stayed there for several hours until I felt the wetness of them coming out....

samy - definitely sounds like some of the sperm was deposited in the right place. Any reason in particular you're only doing 1 insem per cycle? If there is a need for a "next time" (and I hope there isn't!) I'd see if you can schedule for at least 2 or 3 w/ your donor.

AFM - nice temp jump today!!! FX........

Mainly due to his busy schedule. And I don't want to seem ott and scare him away or make him change his mind yk? He said we can do it twice in the months that's possible.

When are you testing?

Ovulation Question I had a temp rise of .4 on CD 14, so does that mean I probably Ovulated on CD 13? It doesn't seem like a very big temp increase compared to other's charts I've seen on here, but I did read anything between .4 and a full degree can be the Ovulation temp rise.

If it is, that means I O'd the day before the "insem"...so the egg could still have been alive? I know I only have a very slight chance this cycle due to the insem mistake, but I do have a little hope...

Anyway can I be moved to Waiting to Know now please? Since I think I'm 2DPO.

I know what you mean about not wanting to scare him away... but your chances go up exponentially the more of your fertile window you're able to "cover." You could point that out to him, saying the sooner you get knocked up, the sooner he is relieved of his duties. But you definitely have to go w/ whatever's comfortable for you both. Good to hear he's willing to do two!

I'm probably not testing till I get back from my work trip, that's if AF doesn't show while I'm away. She's due either Monday or Tuesday. Dunno how I'm gonna wait! I have a lot planned today and tomorrow, though, so that'll make the time go quickly, I hope.

afm- please move me to waiting to Know. When I put in my temp yesterday, it said I was already 3 dpo! (although I could tell before I got crosshairs). I'm already fighting the urge to test and I'm only 4dpo, today!

Can I be moved to waiting to be ready
Af came this morning and we can't TTC the next couple months. So that puts me at TTC again in the new year.
Don't worry, I will still lurk!

um the rule is .2 degrees sustained shift for a minimum of 3 days... above the last 6 temps before the shift.

So this charting thing is a little trickier than I thought it would be...

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2a2be3

When I take my temperature at 4:00am (at least from cd7 on) it is ALWAYS 96.8 degrees. I also have four days at exactly 97.45. Is that normal? I have been looking at charts and haven't seen the same temp day after day.

Also, I am wondering if I should be always using the 4:00am time to temp. It is the time that DH gets up for work, and I rarely fall completely asleep after he gets up. I usually lay there and doze, but from the looks of it, the days that I temp when I actually get up it is significantly higher than my 4:00am temps.

May I ask what sort of thermometer you are using.... because you only seem to get three temps ever. Which makes me wonder...

I got the target brand (up and up?) BBT. I know it's weird...but I do get other temps at other times of day. Right now, for example, it's 98.04. So it doesn't seem like it's a faulty thermometer.

Oh. That hasn't happened to me at all then. So confusing. The last 2 days have been .4 degrees higher than the previous day....but before that for several days my temps were all higher than they are right now.

Same here! Maybe my temps aren't accurate? I am taking them between 4 and 6am and being woken up once before that aswell...so I don't know.

Maybe Im not Ovulating...anovulatory is that what it's called? But I've had EWCM...

Well then that is VERY odd. Maybe your body is just extremely regular

to answer your other question, if you wake up at 4am every day, that is when you should be temping.

Lyndzies I am watching you!! Looking good!

AFM can I be moved to waiting to O? Yeah, I am pretty bummed. Big temp drop this morning so I knew it must be over and sure enough I started spotting today. Feeling very AF crampy so I assume I'll be in full flow tonight.
