Is your cervix low and firm, or high and soft? If it is high and soft, then I would suspect you might be close to O. Is this your first cycle charting? O at 7 days sounds pretty early to me, although I'm sure anythings possible. I have always had a thermal shift to indicate that I O'd, maybe you should try an OPK?
Thank you ladies, it is my second cycle charting, the first time I had a definite drop and spike for O. My girlfriend across the street has a year old baby that was conceived the first week of her cycle, so I know it's possible.
With an OPK, would I test right away or should I wait until morning? I don't need to compare strips because it's a yes or no, right? I have 5 tests here at home, I've just never used one and I don't want to waste them!!!
Either way, I think bd'ing is in order tonight, just in case!
Your temp rises after you ovulate. If you wait until then to bd, it's probably too late. Sperm can live a lot longer than your eggie, so it's best to time bd before ovulation. Any ewcm should be considered fertile until/unless proven otherwise by temps (for example, anovulatory patches or right before af). Good luck! Hope your ttc journey is a short one!!!
After, that is very good to know. Do I have the temp drop beforehand correct? Does that happen reliably? :
I tested with an OPK and it was ---. however I can't get pregnant if there's no sperm, so maybe dh will be happy tonight!
The more I do, for example temping and now this OPK stuff, the more obsessed I get. With dd, I watched my cm and guessed at day 14 and boom baby! However, I've never had ewcm, at least not the stretchy kind.
