My Ovulation Chart


Okay, so yesterday I had a bit of a dip... but I did get up at 4:45 to go to the bathroom, but went right back to sleep and then took my temp at 6:30 as usual. Then the crazy emotions of yesterday... Ugh. Watery CM, but no EWCM. OPK's at 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM were negative.

This morning, the alarm didn't go off at 6:30, but I did wake up at 7:00 to take my temp. There was a significant rise... I find it hard to believe that that could just because I temped 30 minutes later than usual. My FMU OPK was negative. But we BD'd anyway...

I just don't know if I should even have any hope that what I'm seeing is any sign of ovulation when the OPK's are negative and I haven't seen any EWCM. What do you think??

(Oh, and ignore last Sunday's temp... It was taken after less than 3 hours of solid sleep. But FF said I didn't need to discard it.)

My suggestion? See what happens tomorrow! Hopefully it'll be up again and you'll know more! Good luck!

I agree with Jess, a couple more days worth of temps will tell you a lot more. In the meantime, keep with the BDing

Ditto the other ladies. Looking at your chart today I think if you get one more higher temp tomorrow FF will say you Od on Friday. So maybe the temp shift was showing O just a little extra high due to the late temping

I would keep BDing just in case. Fx for you

Not sure if you actually ovulated on the day that ff thinks you may have, as you still had watery CM several days later. I would keep bding if I were you. You may ovulate late this cycle. My advice: keep temping and keep bding. GL and KUP!

Nicholle, I think you're right... I don't think I ovulated on Friday. I'm not having lots of watery CM still -- at least that's what I would categorize it as... it's definitely not sticky, creamy, or egg white-like. And it's NOT dry.

Ugh. I just don't know. I'm so lost. I'm struggling today. DH is stressed about work -- when he's stressed, it's hard to get him to want to BD. That's frustrating. Plus, I don't know if it's worth it. I feel like it's not our month. I know I have no right to complain. It's our first month of really trying. I shouldn't expect it to happen. But it doesn't make it any less disheartening, ya know?

UGH!!! Sorry for whining. I know I'm being horribly whiny, but I just want it to be spring, I want to be able to go for a long walk outside in the beautiful weather... I want a long weekend where DH and I have NO stress and can BD whenever we want to and not feel like it's taking time away from lesson planning for DH. I want to know EXACTLY when I'm going to ovulate so I can time everything right. I want CM that clearly fits one of the categories.

Okay. I whined. I'll stop now. At least for today.

Don't apologize for whining! We all do it. TTCing is definitely frustrating for both partners. I know what you mean about the weather, can't wait for warmer temps! GL and KUP!
