Just wondering...I think I maybe ovulated yesterday, I had EWCM and had a temperature jump this morning. I usually O around day 20-21, yesterday was day 18. I don't usually drink much (well since we've been TTC anyways lol), and last night I had one drink (Palm Bay) but went to bed at our normal time. Would 1 drink raise my temp 0.3? Do you guys notice a temp difference off just 1?
I guess maybe I'll just have to wait a few days to see if I did actually O yesterday. I hope so, our timing would be good if so lol!
The official answer on FF is that "drinking alcohol can affect your BBT and all alcohol consumption should be recorded on your chart."
Alcohol consumption really does affect everyone different. A 0.3 degree shift is a normal variation for me but does not go above my coverline. I drank a lot (3 drinks) a while back at a girls night out and my temp was up almost 2 degrees but I have never noticed a glass of wine to affect my temps much.
With out seeing your chart it is hard to say but I would just see what the next few days temps brings.
Hmmm. . . looks like it could be O to me but it is hard to establish where your cover line normally is. It looks like last cycle it was quite a bit higher but when you are first charting things are a little more difficult to tell since it is all about trends.
Your idea to BD just in case is an excellent one I hope your temp stays up!!
