Still no crosshairs
Well my thermometer isn't giving me much of a temp increase, so I'm not getting crosshairs. I'm doubting whether this thermometer is even good or not.

I'm still convinced I ovulated - had so much EWCM. Maybe it's just wishful thinking though.

I've had cramping yesterday and today, not a lot, but definitely present.

Re: Still no crosshairs
Did you manually add the o date on your ff chart? It says your 4dpo today. You won't get crosshairs without your temp going above those from before o, which your chart doesn't show at the moment, I do suspect that your thermometer isnt helping :hug:

Re: Still no crosshairs
No, I didn't manually add it. FF did put that in b/c of the +OPK and 4 days of EWCM.

Ahhh patience.....

Re: Still no crosshairs
That means it does *think* that you O'd, which is great! I suspect you may not get crosshairs this cycle using that thermometer but try not to let it bother you too much. (Easier said than done I know! )

Re: Still no crosshairs
also, FF doesn't like giving crosshairs with as few temps as you have right before suspected O. If you play around a little and add a temp on CD 74, you might get crosshairs, but obviously that's not the ideal way to do it. Good luck!

Re: Still no crosshairs
Yeah, I've found that FF won't give me crosshairs if I don't put in lots of temps pre-O. So I'm trying to be more consistent. It looks to me like you O'd!

Re: Still no crosshairs
I agree with the other ladies. I don't know if FF will give you cross hairs this cycle because your temps are a little too sparse for it to be sure. Hopefully you Od!!!!

Re: Still no crosshairs
Ahh I hadn't thought of that. I still don't know my way around FF that well.

And I stopped temping for a week b/c I was getting fed up with no period and nothing else. Wishing now that I would have. Oh well!

Thanks for the feedback, that all makes perfect sense.

Re: Still no crosshairs
I know the math for other programs is.. for O to mathematically fit into their algorithms your temp rise must go over the highest of the 6 previous temperatures. I don't know what FF uses, I don't use the program because I don't like its math.

here's an example of a really long cycle but gives a pretty clear pre and post O temp pattern. Probably my nicest chart ever except I didn't O until AF was due.


IF FF uses the same math as every other charting program, you aren't getting cross hairs because you don't have 6 temperatures to make the coverline appear.

Looking at your chart, I'd say you didn't O. a positive opk doesn't mean you will O, it means your body surged to do it. But it actually happening can only be shown by a temp rise and 3 temps over your cover line afterwards.
