May 2010

Welcome to the May 2010 charting to avoid and fertility awareness thread. We are all at different stages in family planning and our own fertility. Some of us are very ardently Charting to Avoid (CTA); most are CTA but would be thrilled with a BFP; and we even have a few who are not CTA but are also not TTC, and continue to hang out here.

If you did not post in April, you may have been deleted from the list. If you were mistakenly deleted, or you would like to be added/removed, please PM me and let me know. I cannot promise to make changes requested in the thread, but I will try to get to everything.

You must post in May if you want to be on the June list!

Summary of FAM rules (sympto-thermal)

Pre-ovulation rules:


1) First 5 Days Rule: You are safe the first 5 days of your menstrual cycle if you had an obvious temp shift 12-16 days before.

2) Dry day rule: You are safe to DTD after 6PM if you have been dry all day.


Post ovulation rules:


1) Peak day rule: the last day of fertile mucous is called the peak day (the day before your mucous begins to dry up). You are safe to DTD on the fourth consecutive day after the peak day. If another patch of more fertile mucous appears, start your count over.

2) Temperature shift rule: You are safe the evening of the third consecutive day your temp is above your coverline. If your temp falls at or below the coverline during the 3 day count, begin your count again.

BOTH rules must be satisfied to be considered in your infertile phase.


How to set a coverline:


When you see a temperature shift of at least 0.2 degrees F above the highest of the previous 6 temps, draw a line 0.1 degrees F above that highest temp.

Hopefully you don't mind the thread being up two days ahead-of schedule.. My weekend schedule just would not give me time to get it up and going...

I revised the initial post, if there is any info you would like there/don't think should be there please let me know. Hopefully there aren't any major clerical errors at this point in time.

Well, I guess I can post in the May thread one day early!

My chart is slightly confusing this month, since I really FELT like I O'd on CD13, and FF gave me cross-hairs for that day, BUT it looks to me like my temp did not really shift until CD16. It's not a big deal either way as far as worrying about getting pg for us right now, but I am still learning here so trying to figure it out. What do you ladies think?

I have been lurking and interested in the conversations about child spacing and DH not being ready for another and the frustrations that go along with all that. s to all of you who are struggling with that. I know I am getting more frustrated than I should waiting for DH to be "ready" to TTC #1. He keeps saying "soon" which is MUCH better than "no", but I am getting tired of hearing, "in a couple more months"!

According to what you have there, I'd say your thermal shift started on cd14, putting O on cd13. You only take the most recent 6 temps into account when figuring your CL and pinpointing/confirming O. You only need to look at your cd7-13 temps. All of those are below 97.8 and all your temps after are either at or above 97.8.

AFM, I think I may stop temping at this point. I've got a clear and sustained thermal shift (although I'm still a little gun shy after last cycle) so I don't need to temp anymore this cycle. My charts are a day different. I think FF is correct. One nice thing about having to wait a few extra days to get O confirmed is that by then I was already halfway through my lp. I hate being at like 4dpo and still having so long to go before .

to you as well. I guess I'm lucky in that DH is "ready" for another one (finally!), now it's just our finances holding us back. Though about 50% of the time I easily conclude that finances are no reason to wait :P

AFM: Cycle Day 6 (boring!) is still here. I'm headed out this evening for a women's retreat, I can only think of one night in 4 years that I've stayed somewhere without DH or DD...

I think it depends on what type of finances are holding you back. If you have a lot of debt that you know you can get paid off in a relatively short time, it's reasonable to want to wait until that's paid off. If you're otherwise living within your means and are just worried how much of a financial burden a baby would have, then maybe finances aren't such a big deal.

OSUvet, I agree with MW...I'd put O on CD 13 with that chart.

As for me, AF is winding down and we're on vacation. Woo!

Happy May (a little early)!

DH told me last night that he's on board for TTC! I can't wait! I've only told one friend IRL and now time waiting for is going to seem so slow, and the time waiting to O next cycle will probably drive me bonkers.

I hope you don't mind if I stick around a little bit, I've learned and continue to learn so much by just reading and asking the occasional question here of there.

Happy May!

So glidey with nothing on the tissue - do you call that watery or creamy? I liked Creighton's "lubricative". Neither of the other words seem to fit.

For a lubricative sensation I like to put eggwhite even if I don't physically see any eggwhite.

I would call that watery. Any time it is lubricative, I indicate watery or egg white (for me it is usually watery; I only get EW 1 day a month, at most).

So AFM: I am 10 DPO, should start AF tomorrow or the next day.

In typical fashion, I am freaking that I am actually somehow pregnant. I do this every month, but I did even before CTA, so it's not that I don't trust this method--I'm just paranoid

Although we did not DTD during my fertile window this month--at all--on CD 17 we fooled around "manually." He "finished" on my stomach/side and then got some on his hand. I tried to wipe everything up, including from his hands. And then he stimulated me some more with his hand. So...if I wiped off, we should be good, right? I feel 14 again

Oh, this would help: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1501dc

Hi all, I know I'm not here much. But I had to share-these have been the most erratic temps I think I've had since I've started charting. FF can't even pinpoint O, though on paper I put it on day 20, going by cf, I think ff is putting it on d19. The one temp missing after O, was at 98.5, but it was a very late temp, so I didn't count it. Supposed to get af any day now.

ready ~ I really have no idea if there's a possibility of getting pg from that.

InMediaRes ~ If it's slippery or lubricative, I call it EW. I don't get watery so I don't know how that feels but that is considered just as fertile as EW so I guess it doesn't make much difference between those two. Creamy feels cold.

bbm ~ I'd put your O on cd22 with your CL/LTL at 97.1. I don't get why you put it on cd19 at all.

Ok, how weird is this? I was just goofing around looking at stuff on FF. According to the pregnancy monitor, if I had conceived this cycle, my due date would be Jan 13. That's my ds2's birthday. So I decided to compare the dates of my current cycle with the cycle that I conceived ds2. They are only different by a day. The cycle I conceived ds2 started on 3/22 and I Oed on 4/21. This cycle started on 3/23 and I Oed on 4/22. I think I've noticed that type of pattern with my cycles before. As long and irregular as they are, they seem to be similar from year to year. Freaky.

Mw-FF, put it there, not me. I put my O on d20 w/ a 97.0 coverline on my paper chart. FF didn't put open circles or anything to point out a temp difference, and I don't know why. It used to do that. I also went by the fact that on d21 I had sticky cf and then dry after that. Shrug. I don't know what ovusoft would have put, since I was only doing the trial. This has been the oddest cycle I've had though-especially with all the spotting and the one super low temp.
Are you thinking O on d22 because of the higher temp change and the spotting right before?

Are you thinking O on d22 because of the higher temp change and the spotting right before?
Which O detector do you have it set on? The Advanced and FAM give red crosshairs. You get blue crosshairs when you put in your own O day and CL or if you have it set to Research, I think. Research is not a good detector to use. It's the one they use for testing tweaks they do to their s/w. It's not accurate or stable.

I'd put yours on cd22 because I don't see a thermal shift before then. That combined with the EWCF and spotting after cd19 make it clear to me that you didn't O then. A thermal shift can only be established if you have 3 consecutive temps at least 0.2 of a degree above the highest of the previous 6 temps. Your highest pre-O temp is 97.1 so, technically, your CL should be set at 97.2. I think it's ok to have 1 temp on the CL but it makes things a little less clear. However, using the LTL/HTL rules of NFP, your temps from cd23-25 confirm a thermal shift with O on cd22. CD20 is a possibility but you'd have to disregard 3 pre-O temps, cds 13, 16 and 17. That's more than I'm comfortable with, especially since the first 2 temps of the thermal shift if you did that are the same or below those disregarded temps.

Ok, I found the settings and put it on Advanced. The three pre-O temps of 97.1 were taken 1/2 hour later than I normally would temp, but even if I disregard them, ff still puts cross hairs in the same place. Not sure what the deal is.
I had started counting my last ewcf day as day 1 for peak day, because the next day was sticky with one smear of spotting. I'll have to check out TcOYF again or just purchase it so I have it on hand for refresher.

Spotting pre-O is considered very fertile, especially so close to EWCF. O spotting can show up a day or two after O, though. I'd try the FAM O detector, which is closest to the rules in TCOYF, and put those temps back in. I don't think they should be disregarded. The FAM O detector is usually more conservative so I think it's safe for CTA purposes with FF. Even with those 97.1 temps taken out, I wouldn't put your O day before cd20.

lol-look what happens when I put it on FAM and replace the temps.
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/28fb6b

Now, if I disregard even two of those temps, it goes back to d19, which I don't buy, due to the ewcf and spotting afterwards.

That certainly would make things extra safe. It did that because you don't have a clear and sustained thermal shift before then according to FAM rules. That's why I suggested using the NFP rules about the LTL/HTL. Your LTL would be 97.1 and your HTL would be 97.5. That would make your O day cd22. You can override it and put it in yourself.

Hi,
I am new to this thread, didn't realize it was here.
We are tta using nfp. I am on my second cycle since the birth of my 4th.
She is nursing quite a bit still, not always sleeping well, so I don't always have a decent ammount of sleep before temping and I don't temp at the same time every day BUT... I have done it this way before and my chart has been way more clear than this cycle.
I am on 16 dpo according to ff with a neg hpt. Can any of you ladies give me some insight as to wether or not I have o'd this cycle.
Thanks

There is a link on FF on the left hand side that says "home page" or something like that. Post the url of your homepage. Have you set it up yet? I think you have to set it up first... clear as mud?

Happy May Day everyone!

FF is wrong. I'd say you can't confirm O before cd34. Maybe sometime between cd34 and cd37. I know that doesn't match up with CF at all but you don't need CF data to pinpoint and confirm O. You only needs temps and yours don't show a thermal shift before cd34. You could try switching O detectors and/or take out the CF data. Just put it in your notes so it doesn't affect the chart.

BBM, FWIW, ITA with MW. Wow, look at those acronyms! I would go with CD 22 and a CL of 97.2ish.

theboysmama, I think it looks pretty clear that you have O'd, but I possibly not when FF says. Again, agreeing with MW I'd put O on CD 35-37 or so just based on temps. But that is one confusing chart.
