Could you check my chart below and tell me if my temp looks triphasic? I went onto fertility friend to check a bunch of triphasic charts but some of them I really just couldn't see it.

Thanks for your input.

Could go either way really at this point. I'm interested to see what it does over the next few days.

I had so many charts that looked triphasic and were negative cycles, but the month I actually conceived my chart didn't look very triphasic at all, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I'm confused as to why you marked ovulation 2 days before your CM started to dry up, when your temps actually point to ovulation the day of dry up?

I agree. I think O happened on CD 16/17. I don't think it looks triphasic. Triphasic doesn't usually happen until I think 7dpo?

My PG chart almost went triphasic. I think the temps on the third shift could/should have been higher to actually consider it, but there are three distinct thermal shifts.

The reason I moved the ovulation day is based upon the cervix and also I started to notice a distinct change in the mucus. Though it didn't dry up right away it began making a change from egg white, stetching 2-3inches, to a much stickier less stretchy type, though still mostly clear in appearance.
I've found my cervix to be very reliable when I choose to check it. Not only does my cervix get nice and squishy and open but also my whole vaginal opening gets squishy and this has been pretty consistent for me.

On average I've been able to draw my cover line around 97.0. I have a feeling that the drop after the rise was a fall back rise.

rlh27 I'm trying not to look at any particular symptom. I do have a few things that combined together would be very convincing for a pregnancy. I've been heartbroken far too often. I'm just waiting for that positive urine test. I'm not even interested in the blood test.

I don't know if it makes any difference but the only other time I charted when I got pregnant I did have a triphasic chart then.

Another thing that I would love to see is for my temperature to go over 98 as the only time that has happened is with a pregnancy.

Cervix is the least reliable method for detecting O. If you haven't dried up, then you are still fertile. Another gal and I already mentioned a while ago that it seems my cervix is always opposite around O. Maybe cause we have tipped uteruses...

I think the ovulation date is set too early and it's a bit too early to call it triphasic. Ovulation occurs most closely to the last day with a slippery sensation (usually on that day or the 2 drier days afterward). So if that was CD16, the temps certainly agree with it. I'd put the coverline at 97.1, and say that right now there's a very nice thermal shift happening, not quite triphasic yet though!

When does your CrM chart show peak? Since FF is such a different way of classifying mucus, just curious what your CrM chart says.

Starting from CD15 I did notice a change in the sensation of the mucus, and the amount of it, as well as the properties of it, though still stretchy and clear.

If I had to consider all egg white that I've had fertile then I would have had to mark right up to CD21 as I've had egg white type mucus up to that day when it finally switched over to a very copius creamy. However, the sensation changed on CD15, where on CD13 and 14 it was super slippery when doing anything, wiping, walking, intercourse etc.

On CD 20 I had mucus that reminded me of those gummy slap toys that kids play with, they slap and stick them to walls etc. I could even roll the mucus between my fingers much like the handle to one of those toys, and it stretched 3-4" long and was clear with white streaks in it. The rest of CD20 the mucus was still stretchy an 1" or more, but not as tough as what I term my slapstick mucus.

I knew by sensation that the mucus even on days 15 and 16 was not fertile but I continued to mark it as it was still quite a bit and fairly good quality. By CD 17 I knew without a doubt it was no longer fertile and I stopped charting it as so. I was getting spurts of egg white but all other observed mucus during the day was sticky.

So maybe Shawna that would give you an idea according to the Crm what my chart would look like. If I went only by observed mucus on toilet paper I would have been fertile from CD12-CD21, so I wouldn't have even ovulated according to that method until CD21. Of course I haven't had any official training in that method yet so I'm likely not using it correctly but I'm giving it my best shot. I still have lots to learn.

Not really, I'm not a CrM instructor - so definitely not qualified to offer any guidance on that kind of charting. But ovulation closer to CD21 is not entirely out of the question either. The thermal shift is much stronger at that time than where the crosshairs are now.
