  • If I eat only phallic shaped food during my FW will that guarantee my baby has a penis?

  • Ok ive actually been wondering this for awhile...

    Is it better to have sex in the morning or at night? Does it matter?

  • I asked a temping question last time there was one of these, but I still have another! I'm definitely over thinking this whole process. This morning, my husband woke me up to tell me goodbye. I was awake less than a minute, but I didn't temp then. I woke up a little later and temped. Could waking up, but not getting up and moving around, just waking up, mess with my temps?

    I guess it's possible that it slightly affected your temps, but if you didn't get up to walk around and give a Shakespearean soliloquy, you're probably fine to count the temp you got. Smile

  • Whoops! I should have just held my question for a minute and then I wouldn't have been that girl that starts her own thread... fail. But my chart woes bring up another question I have. How important is checking CM? I have just been doing OPKs and now temping... If I had been checking CM would my chart have been easier for FF to interpret?

    I have no flipping idea, so I would just say "yes."  Have sex! Smile

    But honestly, I have no idea if there is some scientific rationale for one being better than the other - you should just make sure you are enjoying it!

    I don't think it really matters.  As long as you're in your fertile window and the sperm get where they need to go you should be good!

    I think it is helpful to FF to have that information (depending on the method you have it using to analyze your chart).  I find it helpful because the different CMs can help give you an idea of where you are at in your cycle - but, like OPKs, it isn't a guarantee that anything has actually happened.  But it's another piece of the puzzle.

    The more information you have, the easier it is to interpret normally. You can get fertile CM throughout your cycle, but it can be a good clue that you're in your FW. You don't have to check internally if you're not comfortable with it but I would try to get into the habit of charting it in case you end up having another cycle.

    More information is always better, but it's not required.  Though when you start seeing fertile CM it's a great secondary way (along with OPK's) to know O might be happening soon and you should be having regular sex.

  • I'll play.  I'm looking for a chart stalk of last month, I put my CD1 as June 12.  I'm still BFing my son and hadn't had a period since July 2012 so I just picked June 12 as CD1 so I could start charting.  Otherwise FF wouldn't let me see my chart because I was on like CD300+ or something.  Anyway I got CH on CD25 and felt O pain on CD28.  I'm still not convinced I O'd.  What do you think?  I have a lot of open circles because DS wakes up anytime between 5-7 and doesn't always STTN.  I had spotting once on CD33 and then very VERY light flow for 2 days and another day of spotting.  So I'm assuming I did O.  I just hope I'm Oing and my cycles get normal again without having to wean DS because I'm not ready to do that yet.

    http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3583ac 

    A little back story, I had DS in March 2012.  I had 2 full heavy periods, 1 at 3 months PP and 1 at 4 months PP (June and July 2012) when my supply was very low.  Once I started taking domperidone and my supply picked up my period went away for almost another year until I had that light flow/spotting ealier this month.

    Anyway I'm rambling and this is way longer than I wanted it to be, sorry.

    Well damn, my husband and I reenacted the final scene in Romeo and Juliet. Discard this temp! Just kidding. Thank you for answering. I knew I was way over-thinking it, but it was an important temp!

    It could, but there have been plenty of nights I woke up looked at the clock and went back to sleep and it never messed with my temps.  I say you are good.

    FF does best with the more information you give it.  Is it necessary?  No, but it will certainly help FF.

    Stupid question: I've never used OPKs before.  When should I start testing?  CD 10?  I guess earlier is better since I don't know what's normal?

    My last 8 cycles have been 27 days long (I haven't charted a full month but I had to keep track for the last year for other medical reasons).

  • I have been using ky jelly forever. We used it up until my second and last positive opk day. Did I screw up our chances this month? I totally forgot we were going to go without until that second positive opk.

    My last 8 cycles have been 27 days long (I haven't charted a full month but I had to keep track for the last year for other medical reasons).

    With 27 day cycles as your norm, CD10 is a good place to start.  I usually start on CD14ish because my cycles are a little longer (30-35) although today is CD14 for me and I got a positive OPK.
