Hi Ladies! Been reading through these posts for a long time now and just wanted to get in on the TWW support with you all! I am currently on CD19 of a typical 29 day cycle. According to temps and OPK I O'd on CD15/16. We BD'd on CD 13, 14, 16, 17 and so I'm feeling hopeful this month! I am 28 and we have been trying for our first child for 10 months now after I came off the pill in Sept/Oct 2016. After a massive 42 day long cycle back in January/February my cycles came back to around 30 days and have now settled on 28-29 days (consistent over past few months). My man already has a daughter from a previous relationship so we know that his stuff works and this month I got my first positive OPK (smiley face with CB) so things are looking up!
This is also the first month that I have started temping daily (I have temped in the past but found it difficult to temp at the right time due to shift work) and I am now really getting to grips with my body in this way. I have also altered my diet to include all those essential vitamins and have started exercising regularly. However, whilst I'm waiting to test, I'm wondering how I can work out my cover-line temp. Below are all my temps for this cycle... some of them I found a bit 'weird' especially in relation to my +OPK). Can anyone interpret at all? I'll chuck in any symptoms too...
CD2 - 96.57
CD3 - 96.48
CD4 - 96.85 (end of period)
CD5 - 96.84
CD6 - 96.85
CD7 - 96.39 (random pink spotting)
CD8 - 96.49 (watery CM)
CD9 - 96.64 (watery CM)
CD10 - 96.64 (watery CM)
CD11 - 96.89 (watery CM - start of fertile window according to ovia app)
CD12 - 96.35
CD13 - 96.17 (watery CM. BD'd ... Temp Drop?)
CD14 - 96.69 (watery CM. BD'd)
CD15 - 97.52 (creamy CM, nausea, some cramping. POSITIVE OPK! Temp Rise?)
CD16 - 96.71 (creamy CM, nausea, a lot of cramping. BD'd - Temp drop again??)
CD17 - 96.94 (dry CM, nausea. BD'd)
CD18 - NO TEMP (doh!)
CD19 - 97.20 (watery CM)
Fairly confident that my temp has been rising since the temp drop on CD16. Which is a good sign, right? In that my body is doing what it is supposed to be doing (generally speaking). However, confused about the significant temp rise on CD15 alongside the positive OPK. I thought Positive OPK would be FOLLOWED by a temp rise as +OPK signifies that ovulation is DUE within the following days? Can anyone help explain whether my temps seem 'normal' and also if my temps have stayed above the 'coverline' temp (whatever that is) after ovulation? And perhaps you may have some thoughts on when I actually ovulated? I think somewhere between CD13-15 which would put me at 5/7DPO - But I might be wrong? Sorry about the missing temp on CD18...
If anyone is on the same page as me then please let me know too!
Would love to share the TWW with some peeps.
Many thanks, Lish x
