Hello! I am new to this site!
I just started charting my temps and found out tht last month I def. ovulated, and had a rather short cycle compared to what it has been, but my luteal phase was still 10 days long, which I think is still considered long enough.

I am currently on CD 7. Should be ovulating around Feb. 3rd.

Here's hoping and praying for A BFP!

Thanks *BabyLove*! :biggrin:

Today is CD 16, and I had a dip in my BBT this morning. Last month I had a dip on CD 16 as well, two days before it shot up. I took an ovulation test around noon- it was negative, but I am not sure if that means I am not ovulating at all, or if it is just that I didn't catch it when the LH was elevated. I have read that it can be hard to catch it at the right time.

I think we will still try today, because not only did I have that dip in my temps, but when I checked my CM, it was very wet, slippery, and stretched really far.

I am still new to all this though, so we will see if I am right and my temps spike in the next day or so!

Ok, finally figured out the ticker thing!

I can be technologically challenged sometimes...

Lol, I am glad I'm not the only person still trying to figure this stuff out. I'm trying to figure out how to make one of the cute siggy's that other ladies have!

Still hoping I am on track for ovulating tomorrow! This morning's temp was a little higher than yesterday, but still low. This is exactly what it did last month- dipped way down, the next day was only a little higher, then the next day it shot way up. So here's hoping the temp is way high tomorrow.

I also have had EWCM yesterday and today, so that's a good sign!

Ok...so that didn't go like I expected.

This morning, instead of shooting up like I expected it to, my temp actually went down again a little bit. Hmmm...I guess that dip I saw wasn't indicating ovulation yet. I am hoping it just means I will ovulate on the 4th of the month like I did last cycle. The only thing is, I thought when you ovulated was more according to the day of your cycle, not necessarily the day of the month...Does anyone know how that works?

Because last month I ovulated on the 4th (That's when the temp spike was), but it was the 16th day of my cycle. This month, the 16th day of my cycle was Friday the 30th, so I thought maybe I would ovulate the next day or so. Ahh, so confused!

Also, I have had EWCM the past few days, but I know women in their 20's can have that up to 5 days before they ovulate.

My temp finally spiked today! Not as much as it did last month, but it was still higher than the past six days of temps, so I am pretty sure I ovulated! Yay!

I was starting to get worried that I wouldn't this month, so I am happy!

Does anyone else get really sore breasts when you ovulate? I have had that last month and this month. Last month it tricked me and I thought I was pregnant, but then AF came! So I guess it is just because of ovulaton, because it starts the same day my temp spikes.

Ok, according to FF, which I have just discovered and love I ovulated Monday! Yay! Also, according to that, I have a high chance of conceiving based on their intercourse timing chart. We will see! Now starts the two week wait! Maybe a little less than two weeks, because last month my luteal phase was 10 days long. Even though that says I have a high chance, I am going to try not to get my hopes up, because I know that just uses calculations and stuff to determine that. It can't tell me for sure.

I am actually really enjoying charting. It's cool to be able to learn about my body, and actually see it doing what I have read about! I feel much more confident about eventually conceiveing, now that I have seen a couple of cycles worth of temperatures, so I know what my body does when I am ovulating.

:biggrin:

Now my goal is not to get impatient and test too early!

Ok, after entering today's temp, FF changed my O date to Tuesday. Which is still ok, although I am not sure I understand why!

Well, here I am, 6 DPO! Still such a long way to go! I still can't decide if I want to test on Saturday (When AF is due) or wait a few more days to make sure I am not testing too early. I think I would rather wait a few more days than get a BFN and wonder if it is accurate or not.

I am not sure whether to be excited or not at this point. I haven't had too many symptoms yet, other than sore breasts, but I had that last month every day from ovulation to AF, so that may or may not be a good indicator for me.

The only other things I have noticed are little stuff that could be anything: little bit of heartburn, gassy (Sorry, TMI!), and I have just felt kind of spacey and out of it today.

My temp was still fairly high today, but it did dip a little, so I am not sure what that means.

Mainly I just want to document even the little stuff, just in case!

One more day to go until I can test! I am 10 DPO today. Yesterday I had some light cramping on and off, so I was afraid AF was going to show early, which would have made my LP really short. It's already only 10 days long, so it needs to not get shorter on me!

But other than early this morning I haven't had any cramping today. My temp was still high today, which is a good sign at least that I shouldn't start today.

I am not really sure what to think as far as symptoms go... still not really much to speak of- a little more tired than usual (But I have been helping hubby paint this week), little bit of heartburn- that's about it. So I am not terribly optimistic, but there's always a chance, till AF comes!

Thank you! :biggrin:

Today is 11 DPO. I had pinkish-red spotting last night right before bed, so I figured AF would be here in full force today. Got up this morning, and my temp was actually higher, instead of dipping like I expected. Also, I haven't had any more sign of AF coming, other than a tiny bit of brownish discharge. (Yuck, I know)

I took an EPT HPT this morning, and it was negative. But I think it might still be a little early. So I am trying to decide if I want to take another one tomorrow morning, or wait a couple of days. If I want to take one tomorrow, I'm going to have to go to the store!

I'm cautiously optimistic at this point. My cycles are so weird, so I am trying not to get my hopes up just yet!

Well, AF came today.

Oh well. I feel okay about it. This was my first month actively trying, and I didn't really expect for it to happen the first month, although that would have been nice!

Looking forward to this month!

Wow, haven't written in this journal in a while! But I thought I would just record what I think could be symptoms so far, although I am only 4 DPO, so I am probably just imagining things!

Dizziness
Twingy O type pain in my pelvic area
Sore BBS
Sensitive Nips
Bloated

That's it for now! Hopefully I will have more to post soon!

8 DPO today, and I'm starting to get nervous! I am planning on testing Saturday, which will still be kind of early, but I'm going to use an IC!

So far no other symptoms, other than my lower back's a little sore today.
