stopped temping and I feel so good about it

Ok, so I wouldn't recommend this to everyone. Especially, if you aren't sure if you O or not - or if it is your first or second cycle temping. It's good to get a baseline and to see how regular (or not) your cycles are. I have fairly regular cycles and I know that I ovulate. So, I stopped temping this cycle. Just by doing that, I have am relieved of so much stress. I honestly thought it would be the opposite. I thought I would be freaking out, but you know, I feel so liberated and free. I hated being tied to my temps. Every morning, I would temp and stress if the number wasn't where I wanted it to be. I would even fudge numbers for the next few days, just to see if I had a triphasic pattern. But this month, ahhhhhh - nuthin! I feel so relieved.

I am now 5 DPO and although I feel a bit crampy, I'm feeling so much better than I have any other cycle.

Nice work! And I agree. I gave up the thermometer after a couple cycles of confirmed O. No temperature is going to change if you are pregnant or not:) Congrats on joining the non temping team.

Yay for no temping! I also gave it up as it was stressing me out and I tend to wake up at different times or need to use bathroom which would throw off temps anyway, so I gave it up.

That was the month we got our bfp!!! I still used opk's and checked CM.

So unless your cycles are all over the place, I really don't see the point!
