I sure am! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Here's the deal ... I have a history of infertility (first babe was an IVF success). Husband and I have not been preventing since her birth in Oct '07. However, we recently decided (this month) to wait until June to begin treatments for our next babe, and so to "avoid" (though honestly not super carefully) from now until then.<br><br>
Wouldn't you know, my chart is quite wonky this month.<br><br>
I am typically a late (day 18-20) o'r, with only a 9 day LP.<br><br>
FF can't make up it's mind when I o'd this month. So, I'm hoping you guys might be able to offer some guesses? Depending on slight alterations I make to my chart, FF places O at either CD18, 20, or 22.<br><br>
We did BD on CD17 (pull-out method) and CD21 (figuring I already o'd)<br><br>
My temp on CD20 and CD22 is kind of unreliable. CD20 I took it about 45 mins early; CD22 I was up for an hour with my DD (in a cold house) then back to bed for 30 mins before taking my temp. If I discard these temps, FF puts O at CD18. If I keep them, it puts it at CD20. If I add in some EWCM on CD17 (can't remember if I had any; think probably did cuz had good BD that night!) it moves O to CD22...!<br><br>
If you're still reading this, thanks. I think either way I'm happy, because as of today I would be 10DPO even if I o'd on CD22 -- and that's the longest LP I've had in months!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

hmm interesting. I don't know what to say yet. I think you O'd when ff says you did. But I'm more interesting in stalking it in the coming couple of days!

If I o'd when FF said I did, odds of PG are very slim based on BD, but FF would put me at 12DPO which is very rare for me. Yes, interesting for sure!!<br><br>
I see you recently got your BFP - congratulations!!!! That is so exciting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'd go with cd 22 but it's really difficult to say because of the lack of CM and questionable temps on CD 20 and 22. I would test!

I would say CD 21 or CD 22 was O day, based on the temp rise being significant. For testing/LP purposes, I'd go with CD 22 to be safe. Test in two more days, when you'd be 12DPO if it were CD 22 as O day. And if you're not pg, you'll still have the relief of knowing your LP was sufficiently long to allow implantation! GL!

Thanks for your thoughts ladies! I agree with being cautious - I'll say CD22 and am not planning to test until at least 14 or 15 DPO just because of my history of hating HPTs so much ... although of course now that just one person (moonstar!) has said to test, I want to!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
MariaCM looks like you are in the 2ww too - good luck!! When will you test?

You're a better person to wait until 15 dpo. I'm a testing fiend. I tested two days ago knowing that I was almost certainly anovulatory. I can't help myself.

hmmm, a challenge! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think it's hard to say with those two off-temps. I think you most likely O'd on day 22. However, look how high and steady your temps are for the past 10 days! It looks great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Peeking down at the other responses, I agree with waiting to test. It can be really upsetting to get a BFN and question it, or a BFP and have it go away. Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

This morning my temp was up by over .4 ...<br><br>
So, I talk a good game, but I couldn't sleep all last night and I figured I should just test to put the issue to rest ... and...<br><br>
BFP! The digital "pregnant" appeared within 30 seconds. I'm still shaking and in shock. So is DH (who had no idea I even thought it was a possibility, so that was some news for him to wake up to!!)<br><br>
Looks like we have a November babe on our hands!! Am now praying for a sticky little bean...<br><br>
Thanks for all of your thoughts!!<br><br>

Congrats!!! I was reading your chart before I read your post, and I was like "woah, that mama is PREGNANT! She should test!" LOL. Glad you did, and that you are!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> for healthy, sticky pregnancy!

You all are so sweet - thank you! It's such a roller coaster isn't it?<br><br>
I'm curious - my temp went down quite a bit this morning. Do I need to worry? Should I just quit temping so as not to stress myself out?!

As long as the temp doesn't go below your coverline you are fine! It looks like it just dropped down to the day's before line. So perhaps yesterdays jump was the rogue temp not todays. If you take a look at my chart. You will see the same thing except my temps were up for a couple days and then back down again. I was a little nervous when I looked at my chart and it dropped so far down today. But it is still really high compared to my cover line, and I still feel sick and am desperately trying to keep my breakfast in this am. So I'm confident I'm still pregnant. If you are going to worry I would stop taking your temp each day.

Though looking at your chart, I am curious about your actual O date. When you poas how dark was the line? At 11dpo when I first tested it was a barely there line with a FRER. I wish my camera was working so I could take a pic of it to show you. Was your's a darker line or a really light one. I'm thinking you might have O'd before. Which would mean your baseline would be a lot lower, then it is right now. I'm going to try entering your data into my ovusoft program which uses the FAM method and see what it says. I'll be back... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I bet you O'd on CD 20 then. I don't think you'd have gotten such a strong bfp if you were only 10 DPO. Stop temping!
