I'm about to go insane. Please help!

My temps this cycle have really been crazy and I'm about to go nuts! Lol.
I got a positive OPK 3 days ago and I still have not seen a temp shift. Am I not going to O? Can you get a + OPK and not O?! Is my thermometer broken?! Lol. Someone please help me figure all this out! :)

Long story short: Yes, you can have a positive opk and not O. That said, you will typically O 24-48hrs after the first positive opk. Looking at your chart, you temps are going up (it's higher today that the previous 7d), and it will take 3d of higher temps for FF to register that you did O. Remember the ovulation rule: 6+3. That means that in order to confirm ovulation, you must have three temps that are all higher than the previous 6 temps (although FF sometimes uses a 5+3 rule). From you chart, and assuming that your opk did actually predict up-coming ovulation, I would guess that you are 1dpo today, with a coverline of ~97.4 (based that higher temp at CD15). You also recorded fertile CM until CD18, and fertile cm is typically present through ovulation, meaning that ovulation likely did not happen prior to CD18.

Give it another day or two with the temps. If you keep recording rising temps, I'm guessing that FF will give you crosshairs at either CD18 or CD19.

Hopefully this won't be the case, but if for some reason your temps don't rise and FF doesn't give you crosshairs in the next 2-3d, I'd keep taking opks to see if you get a second surge...

Thank you! O hope it doesn't come to that either. I had some CM today that I'm not quite sure how to classify. It was stretchy, thin, and clear. Not quite ewcm, flat and stretchy. How would I classify that? Lol
