Doesn't it SEEM like my temp should have spiked up?!?! This SHOULD have been ovulation???? I had watery cm, +opk, very high cervix, cramping, high sex drive, temp dip... but my temps are only going up a teeny tiny bit, and not higher than previously..
My only other thought is that maybe it's going up sllloooowwwwllyyyy but does that actually happen? I don't think so. It has to spike, right? GRRRRR.... oh well.
My opk is now ---- my cervix is moving down, almost no cm (tiny bit of sticky) .. EVERYTHING indicates that I ovulated except my temps! lol How would you read this chart? Is it possible O occured? Or not?
The rise in your temperatures can be delayed by an extra day or two. That's normal. Give it a few more days. Ovulation generally occurs on your last day of slippery mucus, on the first day of drying up, and up to the second day of drying up. Temps usually rise after ovulation.
Danielle, if the day I am thinking cd30 WAS (haha) infact O day, then I am already 2dpo today.
I DID play around with my temps on my ovusoft software, and if my next few temps go to coverline or above, it puts my ovulation day at cd30 (SEE??? lol) I don't really understand WHY it would take the temps going above cover AFTER two of them are already below them, but it gave me an egg for that day. I just do not know how to share my ovusoft chart anywhere but on tcoyf. It's more confusing.
Of course, this means nothing becsuae the temps I put in are made up and not necessarily ones I will be getting... but it's nice to know that I'm not ENTIRELY crazy thinking cd 30 could possibly be O day.. lol So many people are telling me this looks annov. I guess only time will tell. Thank you for your help.
Oh, sorry Shawna, I meant to say: what do you mean by:
Ovulation usually occurs on the last day of slippery mucus, on the first day of drying up, and up to the second day of drying up.
I mean, I know what it means, per se, but those are two or three different days.. how can ovulation occur on all of those days? Or is that referring to how long the egg is alive after dropping.. ??? I'm confused! lol
No, it's doesn't occur on all of those days. Charting only gives us an estimate of when ovulation occurs, it doesn't actually tell us the exact day. It's a close estimate, but still just an estimate. Even temps don't tell us the exact day, because they can begin to rise just before ovulation happens or even a couple of days after ovulation.
When they were studying the relationship between cervical mucus and ovulation, they found that ovulation is most closely associated with the last day of slippery mucus (known as the Peak day). *Usually* ovulation occurs on a woman's Peak day. In some cycles, it might happen on the day after Peak. And sometimes it can even be on the second day after Peak.
There is no way for us to know exactly which day it happens during any given cycle, aside from daily ultrasounds. That's why the 3 days after Peak are always considered potentially fertile.
Does that clarify or make it more confusing?

Thanks Ladies! My temp is still up this morning, so I really think this is it. Now, we wait. lol
FF is giving me a "maybe" o date of cd32 but says my cm doens't match. I KNOW it wasn't that day. All the signs of O were gone by cd31. Completely. So I just don't think so. Besides, cd30 works more in my favor so I'll go with that one. hehehe like we can pick, right?
