I wonder if they have a mobile site?  Hmm... off to investigate.

 

Okay, I'm still confused about tcoyf.com.  When I adjust my regular temp taking time to 5:00 a.m. under settings, it still says 7:00 a.m. in the pop-up where I enter my temp.  When I try to change that to 5:00 a.m., it reverts to 7:00, or 7-something when I save.  Anyone know how to fix that?
 



 



As far as the temp time, I think you have to go to the "Initial Settings" page and adjust it for your current cycle. Make you hit save on that page or it won't work. I did this a few times before I realized you have to hit save after just about everything. The software program you download to your computer is a little more user friendly, but I already have it on my desktop that's packed up in storage so I don't want to buy it again. According to the site they're working on a mobile app but it's release date is still undetermined. I can get on the site from my iPad, though.

need some advice from some really experienced mamas!

I don't have my chart online as I  am doing paper only this month but it looks great actually.
My question is with my symptoms during o. This is not normal for me and am wondering if I should be concerned.

My uterus is extremely tender. Started about 3 days ago and had my temp shift this morning. Sometimes it is worse then others. It is localized above my pubic bone and sometimes as high as my belly button (but mostly lower) sometimes it goes from hip to hip. It is a tender, muscle spasm kind of feeling. It is NOT in my ovaries as far as I can tell. It is mosly just annoying but sometimes is extremely painful (like a 6 on a 1-10 pain scale).

 

Here is some history that might help:

My son was born still at 17 weeks in august. I had a full cycle with af and then conceived the next o (10 wks after the loss). I had some weird stuff then but not this painful. I lost that baby at 8 wks in november (11/26/10, 4 wks ago). I just o'd for the first time a few days ago. We are seriously avoiding at the moment so used a condom the 1x w dtd during o. (could it have possibly irritated something?) This was my 8th pregnancy with 4 full term live births. I am 35. Had 5 full days of fertile cm this cycle.

Just wondering if I should wait it out or if this is something to be concerned about.

TIA

First, I am sorry for your losses.
So this pain is ONLY during ovulation? Could be a cyst that bursts when you ovulate (very common for a lot of women) or one that is unresolved? I would be inclined to get it checked out - especially given your loss history as it could be something related
good luck!

thanks. It has happened this cycle and only during o. i just had my temp shift yesterday and today it seems to be getting better. If it is a cyst wouldn't that be more on one side or the other and not in the middle? I have an appt. for recurrent loss testing on jan 19th. I can ask him then, it was just getting pretty bad. Now that it isn't as bad i am not as worried about it.

Any other thoughts?

I'm going to be switching from day shift to night shift, so instead of taking my temp at 3am I'll be taking it at 3pm. So...is that going to totally screw up my temps? I'm assuming the first fews days after I switch I'll not count those temps, but after I get use to the new schedule can I record them normally? Lucky I'm not exactly CTA-sadlythere's nothing going on for me to need to avoid. Hmmm, maybe I should tell my boss I need to wait to change shifts until after I ovulate so it won't mess up my chart-I'm sure he'd love that, lol!

I haven't posted all month .. mostly because I'm STILL trying to remember to check CF and make notes on my chart.  Here is my chart, btw

And I totally feel you about giving away the baby stuff.  DH is adamant about no more kids and I'm ambivalent so I'm craigslisting all my maternity clothes and the clothes DS2 is outgrowing, but I still have this "but wait!" feeling. =\
