Deep breaths! Both of those temp options seem pretty high for pre-O temps. I never really seem to see a change in my temps if I wake up hot and sweaty. Remember that they say that O cramps can be really inconsistent. They can happen before, during or after O. That's why they don't recommend using only cramps to determine O. I'm sure you are OK! Did you try to squeeze in another BD just in case? It can't hurt to have a little more fun, right?

Did you get to the apple orchard yet? Homemade apple butter sounds sooooo good!

I'm starting to get obsessive about my chart. I'm not sure I've ever had such steady temps after O. I suppose it could be the p, but it never see,Ed to affect my temps so much in the previous two cycles I've taken it. Unless, taking it sooner is making a difference. If that's the case, maybe I do really need it. Agh! I don't know! I keep going around in circles in my head. My BBs are sore and full, but they tend to be that way this time in my cycle. I also had a strange eye twitch yesterday and today, which, I'm ashamed to say, I wondered if it could be a symptom! Lol! Now who needs talking down?

My ic opks are darkening again too so I think I may have geared and didnt o. The advanced one could be skrewed up since I didnt use fmu yesterday and did today. I did get a fashing smiley on it today. My cervix is still high and soft. With Lukes back I hate to push him to bd if not necessary so Im going to wait and see what my ics say. I had to place an order this morning for more opks! I had to get fast delivery bc Im about out.

I was getting ready to say your temps are looking quite nice!! fxd for you sooooo much!!!

I'm sorry to hear that Luke's back is still bad. :/ Did you see the specialist yet? I'm sorry if I don't remember.

Did your extra OPKs come yet? Are they still getting darker? I'm curious to see what ends up happening for you! Don't you wish O would be super obvious and straightforward? I sure do!

I had a pretty big temp drop this morning, so I'm wondering if I'm out. I'm 8DPO today, but 11 DPO if I O'd on CD 8 (the first time my temp jumped). Last month my temp fell on 8DPO, too, and AF followed a few days later. (I also might've O'd earlier last cycle, too). Of course, I know it could be an implantation dip. Tomorrow's temp will tell, but I'm really loosing hope. :( I've been really worn out the past few days with slight headaches, so it really could go either way. Sigh.

I just got a text they are delivered. My opks that I had are not getting any darker but still the stupid flashing smiley. The estrogen line is very dark too. I dont know what that means. My temp was 98.07 this morning same as the day I thought I od. my opks were on top of our mailbox. Im going to go take one of those. I just made 18 pints and 16 half pints of apple butter. I have to can my applesauce tomorrow.

I sure hope you arent out and your lp hasnt shortened. I feel like I need some blood tests. I wish I could afford a FS. This has been the skrewiest month ever for me. I so hope your temp goes back up tomorrow. Hoping for an implantation dip for you!! Ive not continued with the p cream since I dont know if ive even od.

Luke has seen one specialist and they are sending him for a second opinion.

I know! I can hardly believe it! I went from feeling so despondent on Saturday to having lots of hope for this cycle. I haven't been able to bring myself to test yet. I hate seeing those BFNs. Maybe tomorrow. I need to find a time to test when DH is not around. I want to be able to surprise him later this week if I am pregnant.

Are you still getting that stupid flashing smiley? The CBDs are the ones that pissed me off, too. I like that there is no guess work involved, but you loose a lot of flexibility with them. Do you still think you O'd? I saw that your temps were going no down a bit, but they still seem like post O temps. I bet a lot of the screwiness you are seeing this cycle is still from your surgery. I hope that things regulate for you next cycle (if there is a next cycle, of course!). Maybe all the weird stuff is a good sign!

yes, still getting the stupid flashing smiley. I did get 1 regular opk that was almost positive yesterday but only one. We did get a bd in lastnight. I dont know. My cervix is still high. We may do it again tonight but only every other day unless I get another positive. This has been a really frustrating cycle for me. Im really feeling like chalking this one up to a bust and waiting on next cycle. The advanced digital has really thrown me for a loop this month. Your temps are still looking good. I so hope this is it for you!!

Your temps are still looking good. Did you test yet?

Last digital said high still while other opks are stark white. Cervix still high. Still mildly cramping. I just dont know what to think. Im ready for this cycle to be over and start fresh. Maybe itś annovulatory one. It may go on forever!!

I hope it's not an anovulatory cycle for you! Those really suck! I still think you O'd. Maybe you still have enough of the LH in your system for the CBD to give you a flashing smiley.

I broke down and tested this morning: BFN. I'm feeling okay about it, though, since I'm only 11DPO and my temp went up again this morning. I may try again and see if I do any better with evening urine. We'll see. With my last positive, I had a vvfl in the afternoon of 13DPO, then the positive FRER on 14DPO. I had an implantation dip on that chart, too, and didn't get the solid positive until the fifth day after the dip.

Well I got this mid day but this evening is much lighter. I was thinking maybe I'd get a positive this afternoon but nope. My cervix has dropped some and is still soft but cm is between watery and creamy. I'm so lost on what's going on. May try and bd tonight anyway. I'm about ready to just give up on this cycle. If I did o then af should show in the next couple days. Spotting anyway. I did take like 3 hpts today and nothing. Just making sure. My temp was a bit lower this morning but I did take it earlier than normal. Tomorrows temp will prob be more indicative of what's going on. I usually drop at 10 dpo.

In sorry for the bfn but you aren't out yet!! After a implantation it can take up to 3/4 days for it to show up in test.

Normally, it would start drop by now, I think. My cycles have been so wacky this year, though, that it's hard to determine normal anymore. I also took my temp an hour later this morning because my phone died and my alarm didn't go off. Thank goodness I have a late start this morning! I also wonder if the progesterone is keeping my temp up. Although last cycle, I still had a big dip before AF, even while taking the p. I kinda wish I could fast forward until I got a positive test or AF. This suspense is killing me!!

My temp was up today too. Neg hpt although I swear one had a faint line took like 6!! haha Im cramping bc Im getting ready to start or cramping bc Im implanting or cramping bc Im going to o. What alot of possibilities! lol Ive got my fingers and toes crossed for you!! I forget did I tell you my dad and step mom got me a belated bday gift? a bengal kitty. Shes 11 weeks old. Her name is Lucy. Ive always wanted one but dh would never let me pay the price for one. That was on the top of my list of best bday presents!! Ill try to get a good pic and show you.

Look at your temp sky rocket this morning! I hope this means good things for you! Are you going to test again today?

I'd like to ve to see a pic of your kitty! What a sweet gift! Is she really playful? Does she like to snuggle? My pup is a huge snuggler. She likes to be able Nader a blanket and pressed right get up against you. Most of the time it's really sweet and comforting, but sometimes I have to kick her out of the way in the middle of the night because I can't move my legs. Lol!

My temp took a pretty good nose dive this morning, so I'm pretty sure I'm out. I was getting so hopefull, too. At least my cycle was longer and much better than it has been recently.
