I'm supposed to go in for a progesterone check a week after O, so I kind of need to know if I should go in tomorrow, or not until next week.
The only thing I can think of, is that the morning where I had the low temp was when I left the AC on all night and I was cold in the morning. The next morning I didn't have the AC on, so I was toasty and comfortable. Not sure that would make about a whole degree difference, but that's the only thing that was different...
Thoughts?

Did you get a positive OPK on Monday also? I just checked out your chart, it seems to me like you haven't O'd yet, because I think your temps would rise significantly more. If you discard the low temperature, do you still get the solid line?

Yeah, is hard to to tell really. Your temps are a lot higher this cycle particularly at o time if you compare to last month, but then weather is a lot warmer...? I do see though that you are slow to rise after O, like it is a slow climb but definitely a climb nonetheless...Maggie asks a good question, did you poas opk after that positive? If I had a gun to my head I would say that you have O'd...

If I discard that low temp, it still says I O'ed on CD 16, but I think that is because the setting defaults to OPK since I don't have enough temps to give a pre-O baseline.
I also wonder if my thermometer is not working that well. The past few mornings it's read 97.77, but this morning I immediately re-took it, to double check, and it went up past 98. So, this might just be an off cycle month...
This was the month that I am on increased dose of Femara, so I wonder if that raised my temps a bit? They seem to be consistent with my temps when I was on Clomid. Last month was my first Femara month and I did notice how low my temps seemed to be.

I guess it's a mystery and I'll assume that I Oed. Probably missed the egg since we barely BD'ed. I don't know how people track their cycles if they don't use BBT!

Hi Ladies

Bre - I'm so sorry about your DH aunt that is far too young to die, my Brother died at just 33 in January and we still don't have a reason why. Just shows life is too short so you've got to live it to the full!

Simone - thanks I hope we don't have to go to the specialist either and I get a BFP but I doubt it.
Slimming World is the best, well done on your weight loss, I'm gonna do a couple of SP days next week to see if that can boost my losses. Not amused been today for weigh in and put on half a pound but I've felt very bloated yesterday and today and I reckon it's water retention due to AF coming soon!

Kathryn - it looks like you may have ovulated now that the positive OPK is on there and those three temps are now higher. Maybe it was just the Femera that made the difference in terms of higher temps this month?
I hope the BDing you did get in was enough for you this month?

EOE - I hope your all doing well?

AFM - I'm CD26 (9DPO) - I actually had to check my diary to find that out as I'm not keeping track anymore. I've had no symptoms different to every other month that makes me think that I'm pregnant so not expected a BFP this month.
AF is due Monday/Tuesday and I'll test if she hasn't shown by then but for now I'm just trying to remain positive for the specialist appt two weeks tomorrow.
It's not helping that two people I know have had babies in the last two days so I'm a bit envious of them but I know that when it happens for us it'll be worth all the heartache!

Sorry have been massively busy. I hope you haven't missed it. IKR - how the heck do people track with out bbt confirmation. I HAVE to temp, the control freak in me won't allow me not to! :D

Hey Fiona - awww sorry that everyone is dropping sprogs around you, your turn will come - you are doing so many great things, the weight loss, the exercise and most of all, your willingness! :mrgreen:

I'm back! I made it to the first day of ewcm before my resolve to NTNP started waning. Once I got a positive opk, hubby and I had a chat and decided to just go for it this month. If I get pregnant it will either go well (yay!) or it won't. I'm prepared for that outcome now and yes it would break my heart to lose another baby, but with 3 MC's under my belt, my doctor would be more willing to look into what's causing me to lose my babies. So why put all of that off? So, FF will probably say today is O day, but I actually think it was yesterday. Either way... Back in the TWW.

I haven't read through everything I missed, but I hope everyone is doing well. Did I miss any bfp's???

Becca! Our trusty leader is back! So glad you are having another go at ttc and I totally understand your logic! Love the meme and yes, totally missed you.

I'm due to ovulate in a few days (hopefully). Have started taking raw red macca as I hear such good things about it. Still taking the ovaboost (month three now so hopefully something good is happening in ovaries). Still on my healthy eating plan and doing well, losing weight each week. Have stopped estrogen and progesterone tho as I want to give my body a break from hormones in preparation for the IVF in the fall. Other than that, just moseying along. :)

Oh, I've heard good things about macca! Were you taking both estrogen and progesterone? I've recently started wondering if I'm deficient in one or both. I have more symptoms of progesterone deficiency, but some of low estrogen, too. I'm trying progesterone cream this month just in case I do get a bfp so I can at least say I tried to do something about it...

Yes, my periods went from five days to three days so I took it for the lining and my progesterone was on the lowish end so I supplement for that. There is a cream on amazon - smoky naturals or something for estrogen and progesterone. I think the progesterone cream has like 20mg of progesterone on it per pump so technically if you squeezed enough of it on you daily, it might help....

So...I weighed myself this morning and I have gained 1.8 in a week. :omg: I have stuck to my plan to a tee, so I can only think that the maca is the problem. so I googled and yup, women are reporting terrific weight gains with it. :doh: :doh: :doh: So.....I'm not taking it any more. Heck no! Tomorrow is my official weigh in but it's going to be a gain. :roll:

Sorry about the weight gain Simone I'll definitely be having one this week as AF has arrived so it's CD1 for me and I'm all bloaty!!!

At least I haven't burst into tears like I did last time so I feel that's an improvement!

Just waiting for the hospital appt now so we can get a plan in place as it's clearly not gonna happen for us naturally!

Hope everyone is well?

Ok yay I got it. Ok so we weren't trying this month. I wanted to lose a little weight and then go from there. But for some reason I thought my cycle was due in a day or two, so I woke up and tested just to see. I'm apparently on CD23.

It's hard to tell with those IC tests. I get that same line all the time... Maybe try a more FRER and see what comes up?
