What a weekend. My team (8 of us) ran 128 miles in 24 hours. One of my legs was in the middle of the night, on trails in the dark woods, for the first time ever. It rained almost the entire 24 hours thanks to that stupid tropical storm. But we finished!

So that said, I got -OPK on Friday morning, and got to temp this morning again. I'm dry CM-wise, but here comes the DOH! Me not getting a thermometer that is to .00 decimal points is causing me regret. Temp was 97.6 on Friday, now 97.8 today.

How high of a temp jump do I need to sustain for 3+ days to prove that I O'd? I'm so mad at myself for not getting a different thermometer so I could see more significant jumps/movement in temp.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

Way to go on the bike ride!

I think its a jump of 0.2 for three days...not 100% sure though. Have you used an opk today?

That is awesome!! Does that mean each of you ran 16 miles

Looking at your chart I am not sure where FF would put your cover line since many of your temps are at 97.8 on the other side of O as well. The rise is usually 0.4 degrees although FF says it can be as low as 0.2 degrees. I think all you can do for now is wait and see what the next few days of temps brings. I think Jens suggestion of using an OPK today is a good one too.

Hopefully you will get some confirmation soon!!

That sounds awesome!

My temp went from 97.6something to 97.8 something when I o'd
I thought it was too small of an increase so I was sure I hadnt...then we got a bfp so obviously I did.

Yep, 16 miles. But it was broken up, we each ran three legs at different times. Mine were 5:30 p.m., 1 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Pretty sure our team finished dead last

Anyhow, I got a negative OPK on Friday a.m. with SMU (got my + on Thurs with SMU). I was unable to do another OPK test Thursday night after my 14 hour workday.

I was thinking though, say my temps were 97.61 pre-o and 97.89 post-o and I'm just not catching that degree of precision.

I'm dry as a bone today CM-wise. Really, really hoping I actually ovulated.

Think I need to go out and buy a new thermometer...this wonder could have been avoided. Or do you think that's not a good idea to change at this time?

I think its just a waiting game now to see what the next few days temps are like. Its not the greatest time to change thermometers as its likely it would give a different reading. Might be a good idea to get one ready incase you dont get your BFP this cycle though (although I hope thats not the case!)
