I usually O around CD23, sometimes 5-7 days after that. I've been wearing a sleep mask and trying to keep the room dark for years now. I tried adding a few days of light a long time ago, but figured it didn't work because the dark wasn't dark enough.
I've tried again this cycle, trying to move O earlier. I left the curtains open and the mask off for Friday and Sat nights (CD15 and 16). My temps dipped low for Sat, Sun, and Mon and since Sunday I've been having cramps and nausea and fatigue (which generally happen right after O for me - needless to say I've been thinking I've O'd for days now!). This morning my temp was a little higher than the pre-dip max line, but my cervix is still high and soft and I've got EWCM, so no go yet.
Q: Should I go back to having the lighted bedroom until this Sunday when I'd normally O? Since my temps are bouncing back up from the dip, I'm wondering if I'm confusing the issue by going back to the dark. But neither I nor DH sleep well with the streetlights streaming in!
