Based on temps, it doesn't look like you've ovulated yet. Did you have positive opks or see fertile CM at any point? Looks like you may be in for either a long cycle or an anovulatory cycle this time.

Question Rolo, my temp has been much higher than normal and I haven't started my cycle yet, my cycle is normally 26 days. I'm so confused and wondering wth is happening to my body, lol

OK... based on temps, looks like you finally ovulated, and I"m guessing that "S" (spotting) was associated with ovulation. You're missing the temp on CD24 so we can't be sure, but I'd guess that O was on CD23 or CD24, putting you at 4-5dpo today. Looks like you'll just have a little longer cycle this month. I"d look for AF in 7-10d (CD33-36).

Don't worry about your cycle being a bit longer this time around. TTC does very strange things to our bodies. Prior to TTC, I had a regular 30-32d cycle. While TTC, it ranged anywhere from 26-35d... Just keep on charting, and remember that the chart is just data. no chart will look exactly the same from month-to-month, so just try to keep calm and know that your body will do what it needs to do when it decides to do it (and not necessarily when you want it to. LOL).

GL!

[edited to add: b/c you ovulated a little late this month, looks like your BD'ing wasn't timed great. Next month, keep BD'ing at least every other day until you see that sustained temp rise.

Also: since you're missing the CD24 temp, and O looks to have happened on either CD23 or CD24, I doubt that FF will give you crosshairs this month. Don't worry about that, either. Just bad luck on the missed temp...]

Lol, thanks for confirming my thoughts around my cycle getting out of whack since TTC. I mentioned to my fiance that some how my period has been getting away from me since we've started this journey. Thanks again, I will be more diligent next cycle.

Hey Logan--

I see that your temps tanked today and that you've started spotting, likely indicating that AF is on her way. Since you're missing a few temps, it's hard to say when O actually was, but looking at this timing, I wonder if you O'd somewhere in the CD19-21 range (a high temp on CD20 could have been above cover line).

Was this your first month temping? You have a lot of open circles, which indicate that something was "different" at the time of temping (typically you temped more than 30min difference from the day before). Next month, be sure to temp in the same 30min window every morning, preferably before you even get out of bed. You also want to make sure that you temp after at least 3-4hrs of uninterrupted sleep (waking up or getting up to pee can affect your temps). You might want to set an alarm for say 6am so that you can temp every morning at the same time before you get up.

This was obviously a strange cycle for you (didn't you say that you typically have a 26d cycle), and since you're missing a few data points, we don't know exactly when you ovulated. Hopefully next month will be a better cycle for you, temp wise. Just remember to keep BD'ing until you see a sustained temp rise (at least 3 days) and until FF gives you crosshairs, since it is possible to gear up to O but not have it happen.

Are you using opks? If not, that might be another thing to try. You can get cheap dipsticks that you can take multiple times/day on Amazon (Wondfo is a popular brand). I got a pack of 50 for $20. When you've seen a positive test, then a temp rise a few days later (followed by crosshairs), then you'll know you're good.

GL!

Hey Rolocat,

I've been busy getting married and vacationing! I think this month will be a late O again, my DH and I have been BD'ing a lot! We even had a go when I came home for lunch today. We're using Pre-seed and I'm taking Mucinex *fingers crossed* I've been using the FR OPK but I haven't gotten a positive yet, my cheapies I ordered from Amazon should arrive today. I'll put some in my purse so that I can test a couple of times at work. I've been checking my underwear and haven't noticed a change yet, I hope you can detect CM from looking at your underwear :/

According to FF I should be getting ready to ovulate but my temp and CM say otherwise so I'm prepared for a late O, I was so disappointed that I missed it last month. Thanks for your advice!!!

Hello! I wanted to give a quick update. I finally got pos OPKs on CD 16 and 17. We've been bd'ing like crazy and using Preseed. I think I o'd between CD 17 and 18, not sure.
