What's the difference between the solid and open circles? I have a few of both?

With my chart, I have several open & solid circles too and found that the solid circles are when you take your temp at the normal time and you did not mark anything that would possibly make the temp higher or lower - i.e. sleep deprived, fever, etc. Open circles are when you took your temp earlier or later then your normal time, or you marked one of those issues - sleep deprived, fever, etc.

Hope this helps!

Exactly. The open circles indicate that conditions were not ideal (wrong time, sleep deprived, illness, high stress, etc).

I hate waiting to . . . hang in there. Wednesday will be here before you know it, and you'll be 12 DPO.

I know FF recommends waiting until after AF is late, but most of us don't have the willpower to wait that long. I know that a lot of ladies get their BFPs on 12 DPO.

You and I are the same dpo and I tested this morning with a dollar store test Of course, it was a , but I'm getting used to those so they don't bother me as much, especially at such an early date. If AF doesn't show by Wednesday (12dpo) I'll be testing. So, you should too!!! Besides, I have 3 FRER's AND a digi burning holes in mine and they've been there for months!!

Not sure what I am going to do. The next day or two will tell. I usually spot a little for a day or two before AF really comes. Last month the spotting started like Tuesday but AF showed on Friday.....So we'll see.

I usually let my temp dictate if I'm going to test on a day that I planned to test. Like, as of today, since i dropped almost a full degree, I'm doubting I'll test tomorrow like I'd planned. I was cold most of the day yesterday and still am for that matter, so that "might" have something to do with it, but I doubt it. So, unless AF doesn't show today (I think she will) and I have a fairly decent increase in temp in the morning I don't think I'll be testing.

What do you think about my chart??? Should I bother to test? I seem to be going downward instead of staying up......

I think your chart looks great Casey! As long as your temps stay elevated, it doesn't matter if they drop a little bit, mine did and I still got a BFP. Can't wait to hear when you test!

It's hard to know, Casey, since this is your 1st month charting. With me & Jess, we can see from our previous cycles that when the temp starts dropping AF is usually on it's way. With yours, it's hard to say. Your temps are still pretty much staying above the coverline so you can either wait a few days and see if AF shows or start testing. You will be 12 DPO tomorrow, and that is when a lot of ladies get their BFP. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, and do keep us updated!!!

GL tomorrow hope it will be ...I'm trying to hold out until thru or friday. My temp always stay up high and depend on if I have my af late in the day or early...it will sharply drop the day before or the next day. So I can never tell with my temp if Af is coming or not. Last month it was one day late so I may wait until Friday to test.

Yeah well I guess I should have waited. Cause now I'm depressed.... I got a And then after I test of course, my cramps started up. I felt fine before and had absolutely no spotting. last month, I started spotting on Wednesday and AF showed on Friday. I usually tend to spot for 2-3 days before hand, so who knows....Guess I'll be calling the doc for another dose of clomid.....

I'm sorry dear that you got the BFN, but you're not out yet. Your temp went up again today, so there's still a chance. I hope AF stays far far away!!!!!


In the meantime though (just in case), since it can sometimes take a few days to get thru, I too am calling my doctor so he can have the Clomid prescrip ready to be called in.

Sweetie!! I'm sorry you got that BFN. Your temp has gone up tho, so you're still not out. Like Becky said, after you've been charting a few months you'll get a "feel" for what happens when. If you look at my chart, the last three days of each of them are soooo similar, I usually get a pretty good clue what's going to happen.

But, today, like an idiot I still tested. I caught a crappy cold yesterday and must've been running a fever this morning. So, when my temp was high, I wiped and saw nothing, so I POAS and get a BFN, wipe again and see pink. Go figure! I wasted a stick!

Hang in there!!
