For the past three days my temps dipped, and then today they went up. The bad part with today's temps though is I don't know how accurate they are. I recorded my first temp that I took at 3 AM (after being asleep for about 3 hours, and it was 96.99)... that's right... stinkin' neighbor's cats were fighting outside and woke me up, and then I went back to sleep. My temp when I woke up for real (about 5 hours after my first temp check) was still a jump up from where it had been, but was slightly lower (96.88 - I know, I have low temps). I didn't know which to record. Being optimistic I recorded the higher temp. I guess Fertility Friend won't confirm an O until it rises some more, since it hasn't really gone higher than my highest pre-O temp this cycle, right?
Next thing... I was so happy to find one last ovulation stick in my closet. I had used some last cycle, but didn't want to spend $$ to buy more, and I thought I was out. Since my temp jumped today I wanted to see if maybe I had the LH surge. This is what I saw:
(The left line is the test, right is the control)
What do you think??? If I did indeed ovulate yesterday then would I still be able to get a positive? (Not that I'm saying this is positive... I don't know.) I don't like how the left part of the line is super dark and the other half is light. Makes me unsure.
Oh, and here's my chart:
28751c Ovulation Charts
Tell me what you think!
What is your normal temp time? Since you have an open circle on your chart it makes it harder to tell if the temp spike was from ovulating but you definitely could have. Since you had a definitely positive opk today I would bd just to be safe. It could be that you just got your surge or you could have started your surge earlier and just still have LH in your system. 96.99 is a pretty low post o temp so I kind of think you are just about to ovulate. I think you should bd bd bd because you have a positive opk and have had some ewcm and o pains.
You could have o'd already. I really think you could have but I would keep bding because I have a feeling your temp is going to be even higher tomorrow!
