Okay well, I've been temping since 12 February (cd8), pretty much the day after I got my BBT. The temps don't make sense to me and today's is absolutely bonkers. I take it every morning before I get out of bed between 630am and 645am.
Not sure what's going on right now, I'm not sick, I take my temps at the same time every morning. I just wish this first month was over so that I can really start tracking. I don't really trust this cycle since I started my period only a couple of days after I got my IUD removed. I had EWCM the week prior to that, so I don't know how this is all going to work out if I did O the last week of January. So far no positive OPKs, on cd8 though I had a slight line, and every day since then there has been no line besides the control.
I know I need to give this a little patience, but I want to dtd soon (it's been a while) and my husband won't because he doesn't want to get me pregnant right now, even after I tell him I'm not ovulating. But I don't know when I will be. And he doesn't know anything about ovulation or stuff like that so he won't take my word for it.
Sometimes if my BBT gives me a wild temp I will re-take it just to be sure.. that sounds awfully low! I've had mine kind of "catch" before and give me the same temp as the day prior and then I retake and its different. I would try re-taking your temp if it ever seems that off. Also, have you considered signing up for fertilityfriend.com? it is much easier to really see what your temps are doing if you can look at them on a chart.
No matter where you are in your cycle, you can consider yourself infertile any time you have 3 days in a row with no mucus felt or seen. Then you can safely BD on alternate nights as long as you remain totally dry. If you feel or see any mucus, consider yourself fertile until either you confirm O or have 3 dry days again.
Tracking CM allows you to tell on any given day whether you're potentially fertile or not, so you don't have to focus on waiting for ovulation. If ovulation is late, there might be a lot of infertile days along the way. Would be a shame to waste them.
