New Charter needs help! Temp up & down

Postby Coley12 » Tue Dec 08, 2015 5:47 am

Hi Ladies,

Could you look at my chart and see what you think. We only dtd twice this month as hubbys been away a lot. This is my first month charting and I started 6 days after my period finished. I've not had any pregnancy symptons last two days felt a bit sick first thing but nothing much.

My temp is up and down and I don't know what to make of it at all. My coverline hasn't gone on yet either so that isn't helping. My period is due saturday and I am starting to have some mild cramps.

Are you taking your temp at the same time every day? My temps were like that a lot last month and I ended up not ovulating until CD37. Since you haven't got your cross hairs yet, I would guess you haven't ovulated.

HI thanks for the reply I am taking my temp first thing between 6.15/6.30am every morning. I have had a couple of positive opks though too so was confused by that. Do you think I might ovulate this week?

Since you haven't seen a sustained temp increase yet, I'd suggest that you keep taking opks (and keep BD'ing regularly--every other day is good). Looks like you'll likely be in for a longer cycle this month... Unfortunately, there's no way to tell in advance when you might ovulate other than with opks (end even then, there's no guarantee, obviously). A sustained rise in temp that gives you cross hairs will confirm O. Keep looking for those temps to go up...

Yesterday I got a temp rise to 36.46 and a positive opk. Today it dropped to 36.44 and we BD last night going to do another opk in a few hours but looks like you were right hoping for an increase in the morning and hopefully get some crosshairs on the chart.

Right now, I'd put your coverline ~36.46 (due to temps 6-7d ago), so I don't think you've O'd yet. But that +opk yesterday is a good sign. I'd look to see an increase in temp above 36.5 in the next day or two. 3 higher temps will confirm O on the last day of lower temps...

Could it be that I may of O'd in the 5/6 days prior to me starting my chart? I started the week after my period so might of o'd really early? No increase in temp this morning it's at 36.37, cd 30. The opks are cheap amazon ones and have all been faint positives.

to be positive, the test line on an opk has to be darker than the control line. there will likely always be a faint line there. As for early O, likely not. your LP (length between O and AF) should be somewhere in the 11-15d range, and it should hold steady every month. rule of thumb is to look for AF 12-14d after O. How long are your cycles normally?
