I had a miscarriage a month ago and this is my first cycle ttc after it. I started bleeding on October 18th and that lasted 5 days. Then I ovulated on CD 19 as confirmed by opk and bbt charting. Normaly my temps fluctuate quite a bit even during my luteal phase with around 2 drops during the luteal phase. This cycle however my luteal phase temps have been continuously high and I even had a bbt increase today at 9 dpo. It went from 36.68 to 37 degrees Celsius when I woke up this morning. My luteal phase is usually between 9 and 12 days with an average of 11. My questions are; first, is this a good or bad sign? And I ve taken hpt today but of course I got a bfn so When should I test again? what do you think? Here's a link. https://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/64d29f

I'm so sorry for your loss. That chart is looking fantastic, though! It will be interesting to see what the next couple of days bring, but if those temps stay up there, you're looking at a triphasic trend which is a really good sign! I've heard you are often more likely to get pregnant the cycle after a loss, but I'm not sure of the science behind it. Things are looking really good at this point, though! Best of luck to you!!

Temps still high. What do you think? I did a couple hpt today and the first 2 were very faint positive like this then I did a third one that was digital but it said no It is negative. I was confused and did 1 more and It was a very faint positive again. Tell me do you see It or am I crazy?

Eep! Those look positive to me! The digital tests often don't pick up until a little later. If you crack it open, you'll find a regular test strip, and it probably looks just like these other two. Congratulations!!!

Your right I cracked open the digital and got another faint positive I don't know if it means alot since it's been sitting for hours but I'll take more tomorrow and the next few days to make sure! Really appreciate the help!

In this case, since you already got two other faint positives, I'd say that's a legitimate positive!

Now my lines are even lighter then before. I don't understand what's going on. Maybe another early miscarriage? Uhg I'm so discouraged. Guess there is not really much I can do but wait and see what happens. Wonder when and if af will show up.

Ugh sorry you're feeling so confused. Some test brands are not good for showing progression and the lines tend to fluctuate a lot early on. I do still see the line! Hopefully in a couple of days you'll see it darken up. In the mean time, is your doctor willing to test betas for you? One alone won't tell you much, but it might help you feel like you are doing something proactive. Sorry, that's so hard to be in limbo like that. Fingers crossed for you!

I took a test in the afternoon and 1 at night and they were darker. I don't get it i thought first morning urine was suppose to be better. So why is mine lighter in the morning?

I have heard that afternoon urine is better for some women. No idea why!
