So I ordered a thermometer to temp with this month (even though i already had one - it was for the kids and i wanted my own), but it was over a week late arriving so I started out temping with the kid's thermometer (which reads to the tenth anyway..) and then switched when i got my thermometer in the mail. and look at my chart. such a big drop! how will i ever get a coverline now? Am i being silly?

I can's see your chart :/ But changing thermometer can affect a chart.

yeh you would have to or else you may not get crosshairs. You didn't temp with the other thermometer also by any chance did you? Are you using OPKs??

I strongly suggest OPK's just so you see when you get the surge then confirm O with temping. When do you normally O. I think if you discard the other temps and use the kids thermometer then FF should give you CH.

I was going to suggest a different route and say ditch the kids thermometer, stick with the proper BBT and discard the kids one's readings but it looks like you started back with the kids thermometer so never mind. You would have still been ok because you would have the readings the few days before O so you would see a clear thermal shift. I don't think you will now that you started high, switched to the lower and then switched back again.

Yeah I think you're right Bella. Siigghhh.... And I went camping this weekend and didn't sleep well at alllllll so everything's messed up. I had really really strong O pains most of the day Friday so I'm pretty sure I O'd. Plenty of BD before during and after so I guess I'll just cross my fingers! Dang it!!
