Ovulation day dip? :-/

Postby ksi0512 » Mon Nov 23, 2015 6:18 am

Can someone take a peek at my chart? Yesterday I had my first positive OPK. Today I had a dip in my temp. I thought it would go up?? I did take my temp yesterday about an hour later, but it was still right when I woke up. Not sure if that matters. Or maybe if I O today, it'll spike tomorrow? This is my first time temping so I'm not really sure if this is normal.

Hi Ksi- usually you will get a temp dip the day after you get your +OPK and then you should see a rise in temp the day after the dip. The dip indicates your actual ovulation day. Once you get three temps in a row that are higher that the previous 6 temps, you will get cross hairs on your chart. The temp on the 22nd though may not be 100% accurate as I see FF has it marked as an open circle (maybe you didn't test at the same time as you normally do? or had some alcohol the night before, etc?). That may put a delay on your crosshairs showing up since it is so much higher than the rest of the temps you have noted. If you get high temps tomorrow, wed and Thurs but don't see crosshairs, then I would consider "discarding" that temp on the 22nd and see what happens. I hope this helps.

Remember, too, that opks predict that O will happen, but not when. Typically, it'll happen 24-48hrs later, but sometimes it can take 3-4d, so if you don't see an immediate rise in temp, DON'T worry (stress can actually delay ovulation). Just keep taking opks and keep BD'ing until you see a temp spike and sustained high temps for at least 3 days. Looks like FF is predicting a 31d cycle for you this month. With a 31d cycle, you should actually ovulate somewhere in the CD16-CD19 range, so it wouldn't surprise me if you don't see a spike for another day or two, at least.

FWIW: in the month of my bfp, I had a failed LH surge (got +opk, but no temp rise) at the normal point in my cycle (CD14-15). Had a second round of +opks a few days later, with temp rise confirming O on CD20 (I'd O'd in the CD12-CD16 range for the previous 6 mo).

Thanks for the advice! I took another OPK test today and had very very positive on my strips and my CB digital gave me a smiley today as well. So I guess maybe my surge just started yesterday afternoon.
And yes my temp on the 22nd was about 1 hour later than normal. So hopefully I actually O tomorrow! We will BD tonight for sure, hopefully tomorrow if he's home and not away for work!

Thanks again for your help! Hopefully it spikes up in a day or two! :)
