Hi everyone! I have been on JM for awhile now and just had a baby boy! I cant take hormonal birth control so we are using other protection. However that still makes me nervous so I am trying to learn to chart as a way to protect and also to have an easier time getting pregnant the next time. Anyways the girls in the Fertility Chart board said you guys could be of some help as well!
My question is. I had a big dip in temp on day 13 and my temp has gone up since but I noticed on day 17 that I had some EWCM. FF hasnt told me a pinpoint for O yet so Im wondering did I O on day 13 or am I just now Oing on day 17???
Welcome and congrats on your baby boy! He is adorable!
FF will take at least 3-4 days before telling you if they think you O'd or not. They faithfully look towards your temps. They are also known to change it on you. Also today you have a open dot - what did you do differently this morning? Were you up earlier/later? That is usually what causes open dots.
AJ (age 7) & Katie (age 2.5) PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
Sava today I woke up a bit later then normal. Also today I noticed creamy CM and my cervix is higher. Im assuming maybe O is just now coming. I have always had unpredictable CM though. Also I use to be pretty regular, so I was assuming day 13 should be right but I keep forgetting my body wont be back to normal this soon after having a baby. Im hoping Ill get this charting thing down better. Sometimes I get confused with CM and cervix. EX: I think watery CM is creamy or I cant tell if my cervix is soft or hard and to be honest it always feels a little open!

I would agree that based on your CM, I don't think that you've ovulated, but I've always had problems trying to figure out FF's charts for some reason. I just can't get it. LOL
Also, your body could still be adjusting to getting back to normal after having your son, so keep that in the back of your mind. It can take up to six cycles for your body to get back to your normal pre-pregnancy.
