Unfortunately I don't know much about progesterone levels, so I won't be much help. :/ But I have been there so many times googling things until they make less sense than when I started!

Either way, neither of us are out this cycle. We're still in this, so let's focus on that! Let's cross that AF bridge when we get there. :) (Can you tell I'm trying really hard not to get bummed out today?!)

So my bbt did a huge jump this morning (6dpo)- since progesterone is the heat causing element and what makes your bbt rise, I would assume that today my progesterone levels would be higher than they have been the past few days- it does make sense to me that way (I am doing everything I can to rationalize this and make myself feel better lol- can you tell?!)

I hope that when you test again today you get good news, and you are right- no one is out until AF shows up- and hopefully that won't be for a while! :)

Ooh, that temp jump looks nice! Hopefully you're right!

I feel very not pregnant this morning. I'll still take a test when I get out of bed, but I'd be surprised if anything showed up. I don't feel as upset about that as I did yesterday. There is still time, but if it's not this cycle, we'll move into the next.

Oh no :/ I am so sorry! What dpo are you? Is there any chance of a surprise tomorrow do you think?

The only thing giving me any hope right now is that temp jump this morning- however, I can't even compare this cycles temps to other cycles because I have no idea how the clomid would affect my post O temps :/!so literally all I can do is wait and see- which is really frustrating !

I'm 11 dpo. I've gotten all of my bfp's by now on other cycles. And on all of those cycles, I had a hint for a day or two ahead of time on my wondfos. Today's were definitely negative. I'm also feeling really not pregnant. On my bfp cycles I have had some bloating and constipation and those cramps I was talking about. They would be out steady by now I would think. I don't have any of that going on today. There's always a chance of a late implanter not causing symptoms yet, but I'm not sure it would have enough time with my shorter LP.

Even if you don't have anything to compare your current chart to, that jump looked great, so if see it as a positive thing. :)

:/ well bummer- I was really thinking some of your symptoms sounded so promising! But you said from the beginning of this cycle that things were a little "off" so maybe you will get that late implanter. Does your temp usually plummet the day before or the day of AF? Would tomorrow's temp pretty much tell you if AF was on the way?

In my past few cycles my temp started going down at 8dpo then really plummeted at 9dpo and I got AF on 10dpo- so If I can keep higher temps for the next 2 days I will feel a little bit optimistic . In my google madness from everything I read it says that clomid does not have that much of an effect on post O temps but rather the temps on the days you take the pill (granted, I am
Not sure that makes a lot of sense but I will hold on to whatever little shred of hope I can right now lol). I looked back at last cycle and I had cramps at 5dpo then also- and I had a huge temp spike at 7dpo - then it went down for the next two days so I am very curious to see what my baby is the next 2 days. Right now don't feel any symptoms at all.

Yes, my temp drops all the way to pre O range the morning of CD 1. But even if it's up tomorrow, it could drop Saturday. Either day would be within normal range for me. And even if AF shows, I'm not positive that none of those symptoms were anything. I do think sperm meets egg more often than we know, it just doesn't stick. No use in dwelling on it, though. I've felt some weird pinches today between ovary and rib level on the side I O'd from. I actually do remember feeling that on my first bfp cycle this year. I looked back, and 3 days after that, I got my bfp. And you hear of plenty of people who don't test positive until a day or two after AF is due. 3 days would put me at Sunday, 1-2 days late and 14 dpo, so not out of the question. I still just don't feel like this is it for me, though.

Did you talk to your doctor about your charts at all? I'm wondering with the gradual drop in temps and shorter LP if low progesterone could be the culprit. If so, that one's easy to remedy! B6 can add a day or two to your LP and it supports progesterone. Did your doctor say if clomid can affect your LP at all?

Ugh. These are my bfn's from earlier today and now they have lines. This was way out of the time limit, but now they've got me wondering again if maybe there's still a chance!

Oh exciting!! Didn't you say all your bfp's have started like that?! Keep me posted!!

My temp went back to 97.78 today ( so 97.78-98.23-97.78) so yesterday must have just been an anomaly :/ not feeling so positive anymore haha, although I suppose all I can do is wait and see what tomorrow's bbt brings at this point! 7dpo today

This morning's test has a visible but very very faint line within the time limit... I just don't know what to think! Yes all of my bfps have started put this way, but a few days earlier. The timeline is what has me worried. Either it's not a viable pregnancy, or it is, but it's so close to AF that I'm scared it doesn't have enough time to get established!

My temp is still up, so AF won't be here today. We'll see what tomorrow brings. I find it funny that after months (literally, I think over 3 months) without measurable rainfall in Seattle, the thunder rolled in today and the clouds broke open. It is literally pouring fertility out of the sky on our parched landscape. I'm taking that as a good sign. :)

I've heard of some people claiming they get implantation spikes as well as dips, so you never know. ;) How are you feeling? Any symptoms?

Oh yay! I need some pictures of sticks lol- I need to live vicariously though you :)

In regards to symptoms- not really? I feel maybe some cramps? But nothing dramatic- my temp is still way above cover- but I think tomorrow's temp will be a lot more indicative of what's going on, so we shall see! I also feel kind of "dry" down there- which isn't making me overly hopeful either but I also have not been drinking as much water since going back to work (I have a pee schedule as a teacher haha) so maybe that is why...ugh, more waiting it appears! How about you, any symptoms today?

Ok I spoke to soon earlier about being dry- just checked and holy CM! My cervix is super high/closed and there is lots of sticky CM with creamy colored blobs that stretch a good inch between my fingers - I have never had this before and I don't know how I would even classify that CM - it's like 3 things at once haha

Ooh that cm sounds positive!

Today has been weird. I don't have a lot of symptoms. The line on my morning test disappeared after awhile, then the lines in yesterday's got ridiculously dark and then faded (with the steam in the bathroom maybe? I've never had that happen before!) Then my afternoon test looked like nothing at 3 minutes so I thought I was out, and came back 30 minutes later to find a line. No clue what's going on! AF is definitely due tomorrow, so my morning temp should tell me if she's on her way.

Pics of afternoon test at about 30 minutes, then again when dry.

Oh!!! I definitely see something on those tests!! Fingers crossed that your temp stays elevate today! Keep me posted with more tests! The earliest I will test will me Monday ( that's the day AF is due so if my temp doesn't plummet I will poas)

My temp did stay elevated today (a little higher than yesterday) so I am cautiously optimistic, like I said before this is usually when it starts to descend down. Even if the elevated temp is only a result of the clomid (I believe it helps lengthen lp) I will take it because mine is so short- anything helps at this point haha. My nips are not quite as sensitive as they have been which is concerning but they have never been sensitive this long before (usually that stops around 6dpo)- so again, holding on to a shred of hope.
