Just wondering if someone can help me out with BBT and CM/P questions. For the past three months Iíve been very consistent with temp and for the most part I see the thermal shift. Iíve also been checking my CM/P but I think Iíve taken this part less seriously for some reason, I sometimes guess on what I think the position and consistency is but Iíve been annotating on FF regardless. Which I recently discovered was the reason FF was having issues giving me CHís, or giving and changing and taking away. So what I did, was annotate in a separate calendar what I originally posted as CM/P and went into FF and erased all of those postings and for all but one I received dotted CHís. Do you think these are still accurate? Iíve decided to continue to chart my CM/P separately and make little annotation of why I called it what it is in hopes that Iíll learn my body better then post it in FF once I think I understand what Iím doing. Do you think just going on BBT will work?
Also, as far as OPKsÖwhen do you test? Iíve read that you arenít suppose to test with FMU and that itís best to test around 3:00PM with urine held for several hours. This is almost impossible for me, as I seem to go at least once and hour so holding for several hours will have me peeing in my pants. Iíve tried to hold as long as I can and test but never have a positive, also trying the same day with FMU and always dark? So how do you ladies test with OPKs?
You can do temps only, but that won't let you know you've ovulated until after the fact. The CM is what will tell you when you're fertile and when ovulation is approaching, so you know when to try (or not try, depending on your intentions!)
