I pretty much already know that the answer will be to wait and see what my temps do but I just wanted to ask anyway.

I am 8 months PP and on Saturday evening, I started getting watery CM for the first time since having DS. I took an OPK and it came up definitely +, however, these particular OPK's seems to be always be ALMOST +, no matter when I take them. We DTD (though we used spermicide, as we are not TTC) that night and right afterwards, I had a LOT of EWCM, and I am pretty positive it wasn't DH's stuff because it was extremely stretchy. Then, I got mostly negative OPK's the next day but got ANOTHER + late that evening. Yesterday, I had very slippery CM all day and another + OPK, so I got some Walmart brand OPK's just to see if these OPK's suck or if they are legit +'s...and I got a negative on the Walmart brand. Got another + OPK today on the IC's but negative on the Walmart brand.

I just started temping again and I am pretty confident the temps are accurate, as, in my experience, waking and talking in the mornings don't affect my temp, however, I did not take them immediately upon waking, since I either had to get DS from his crib or DD would come running in and start talking to me before I could temp so most people would say they probably shouldn't be used.

I am just confused. Do you think it is safe to say I O'd if my temps stay up? I know, more than likely, I will just have to wait it out and see if my period shows up but I HATE waiting.

Here's a link to my chart, too: My Ovulation Chart

ETA: My CM today is mostly creamy, with some little bits of slippery CM but, TMI, I think that is just left overs from the other night, as that tends to happen each time we DTD for a couple of days.

Unfortunately, you may not be able to confirm ovulation with temps this time because you didn't start temping soon enough. You need at least 6 temps before ovulation to be able to detect the rise after ovulation. Can't really compare these temps to old charts, because the temp pattern is only relevant to the current cycle.

As long as you continue to notice wet or slippery CM, you're still potentially fertile (and 3 days after it dries up too).
