have any of you ladies had a temp dip on the day of ovulation? here is my chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2a87a9

cd 15 seems like a big drop, and then cd 16 seems like a big rise. esp, because my temps have been relatively stable otherwise. that appears to indicate cd 15 as o day, right? i know i have to wait for 3 days of a sustained temp shfit to really confirm that cd 15 was o day, but i just thought i would ask what you ladies think...

this is my first cycle charting. we will probably dtd tonight too, just in case.

I usually get a temp dip on O day... almost every month. Not always a huge one but sometimes very noticeable.

Sometimes, I also get a temp dip for no apparent reason or for something as simple as using one less blanket at night.

That said, you generally do NOT get EWCM the day after O... it generally clears up just before O happens. Not always, mind you, but usually.

as i said, this is the first cycle i have done this, so could i be confusing the ewcm with maybe leftover semen from yesterday?

because yesterday in the morning (when i had the dip, cd 15), my cm seemed dry almost, or sticky at the very least, and then we took advantage of naptime and that evening i checked again, and it seemed more watery, and a little stretchy, but i couldn't get it to stretch more than 1cm or so. today my cm stretches an inch or an inch and a half, but the strand is very thin and breaks easily.
