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!

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???

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!

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...

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!
Full moon October 18, 2013 04:37:36 PM
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!!

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!

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.

So I guess the points just accumlate each day that you add symptoms? That's like a reward for recording them! lol

Hopefully the cramps will go away soon!!! I don't really have cramps, mine's more of a pulsing/throbbing kind of feeling. I didn't really have it at all yesterday with the exception of a few random twinges. Today it hasn't been nearly as strong as Tuesday. What day is AF due for you? AF should show up by Tuesday for me. greensad.gif

I am absolutely starving this afternoon! That's nothing unusual though! Going to try and walk a couple miles with a friend after work! I have been WAY too lazy the past few weeks.

I hope you have a great visit with your DH! orngbiggrin.gif

I'm here and finally no longer cramping - probably a solid three hours of it. I'm hopeful it means something promising!

I seriously laughed out loud at your reward comment hahaha!

I'm tired and ready for bed, but he wants to walk :/ I hope you enjoyed yours smile.gif looking forward to checking our temps tomorrow!

I had a pretty big temp dip this am too! I wish I had more faith that it's implantation! Of course I'm telling myself that it's because the temperature in the house at night is much cooler than it has been. (Haven't turned the heat on yet-I love this time of year!) And of course, I have read all about that too and it looks like that isn't supposed to make a difference! And then of course I had to look at charts with temps similar to mine that got a BFP! I'm telling you the closer I get to AF, the crazier I become......but I guess that's normal, isn't it? LOL

BTW, funny how this has kind of become our own forum!

I am so looking forward to the weekend! Two whole days at home! smile.gif I hope you have a great weekend away with DH!

Now back to work for me!

Hahaa no kidding! I saw the "saner" thread and I'm like whoops guess I'm not allowed :P

More cramping this morning! This is good right? I mean, why else would I be cramping 5 days before the wench? I also spent some of this morning looking at "charts like mine..."

I'm visiting with my mom's bestie while he's at work, then we finally have the weekend together. Last night I was so tired and he had to work on a presentation...asleep before he got to bed! Oh, and I was SO HOT last night I kept kicking the blankets off, and by morning I was COLD...hmph!

Enjoy your day! I keep checkin on your chart to see if you've added any new symptoms wink1.gif

I'm SO effing bloated and miserable I want to cry. I'm literally writing this from the bathroom, where me & my giant, air-filled belly are begging for the 'powers that be' to pop me with a pin so I'll deflate! I better be pregnant, because I can't think of one other legit reason as to why I can't consume a small amount of risotto without feeling like I want to explode...!

Hope you're having a nice evening smile.gif

I totally had an entire post typed out and when I hit submit.... The screen just went blank! Good thing it's Saturday morning!

So here it goes again! I hope you are feeling better! That is miserable but it could be a pregnancy symptom! I haven't checked out your chart today but will in just a minute!

I got home to unexpected company last night that DH invited over to watch the Cardinals game who by the way, are going to the World Series! joy.gif DD had her best friend over to spend the night and then DH's DD stopped by after she got off work at 11, she's a nurse and works crazy hours right now. We were up until 2!! I haven't stayed up that late in forever!

Needless to say, I slept in until 8! So my temp, even though it jumped way up, probably isn't accurate. greensad.gif I also started spotting which has become normal for me since August. As much as I want to be, I just don't feel pregnant. But next month looks good for trying!! I guess I will make an appointment to have hormone levels checked! I had a 21-day progesterone test last week and the results were within normal limits (13.89) but the nurse said the Dr. likes them around 20 or higher. Hopefully next month will be our month!

I hope you are having a great weekend! smile.gif

What prompted you to get the 21-day progesterone test? Bc of the mc?

Just when I was startin' to like you, you went ahead & mentioned the cardinals ;P born and raised Cubs fan, like it or not! My son, however, is destined to be a cardinals fan. My ex husband is from Peoria and they always said - in their family - that cubs/cardinals skips a generation, so his grandfather always teases that my son will miss the Cubs boat. Frankly, it's a whole lot of heartache anyway...!

Today was a super long day! We spent a lot of the day driving, hiking, walking & eating! I didn't sleep well because someone snored all night, so I'm not super confident about my temp either. However, I do, feel pregnant. I'm not sure how I even O'd on schedule after last month, but it seems I did. I'm going to wait to test until Tuesday morning, the day before AF is due.

I hope you had a great day and got some rest! It ain't over til it's over! Every pregnancy is different, and so are the symptoms often! So you just never know smile.gif

11 DPO and tested in the evening anyway. Negative with the clear blue digi. Dejected! Even though in my right mind probably wouldn't even show positive at 11 DPO on a digi, at night. Ugh

Trying to decide if I should use the other test for tomorrow first morning urine at 12 DPO...?
