So I'm hoping for crosshairs from FF tomorrow but as it stands I'm pretty sure I Od wed night. I was away for work on wed and although I did an OPK at about 7.30pm and it was negative, it was barely negative and at around 11pm I had some cramping which I would usually get around O time.

The reason I'm after opinions is that I need to get my progesterone bloodwork redone next week so need to time it right. I'm away for work again mon eve - wed night so my options for getting the bloodowrk done are monday morning or thursday morning. At the moment I'm swaying towards monday, which will be 5DPO as if I have a 12LP like last cycle that would be 7 days before AF is due which is when my doc has said the bloodwork needs doing.

So any feedback on whether you think I'm sounding sensible would be appreciated!! Thanks!

I think that based on your chart you O'd on Thursday. Most people will O the day of or the day after the pos opk. It's also very common to have a pre-O dip so that the first rise looks like your surge but it might just be your temps recovering from the dip. I am fairly certain that FF is going to agree with me and give you CH's for Thursday also.

I've never had my progesterone checked yet myself but from what I've read on the topic it's more likely for you to have issues with levels later in the 2WW than earlier. So if it were me I would go for the later date for the blood work to try to catch any problems that might be going on. Goodluck and KUP with what you decide to do.

I think since you didn't get CH's today for Wed, you'll get them tomorrow for Thurs. Have you tried putting in a pretend temp for tomorrow to see what FF does?

Yep you were both right, ff gave me crosshairs for thursday..this is so confusing sometimes

I'm worried that not getting the bloodowrk done till thurs will mean that I miss my prog surge post O and it will look like I didn't O. Ill be 7DPO on thurs and usually by then my temps drop way down to just above my coverline..will this matter?

I thought that 7DPO is when you want to check your progesterone. Could you just call the doctors office and see what they suggest you get it check? Good luck!
