Trying to Get Pregnant

TWW Monday

Re: TWW Monday

  • Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 20/2

    Timing: -3

    Testing plans: none as of yet

    Rants/Raves/Chart Stalks: This is a rant and a rave.  A rant against my cycle and myself for not temping before now!  All of my signs (I thought) pointed to a completely different O date, but FF gave me something different, and after going back through the very little charting that I have done, I have concluded that 1. My timing is terrible  2. Next month I have a much better chance.  So while I'm a little down about my chances this month, I am ecstatic that I finally have some insight into what is going on down there.

    GTKY: If you could spend a day as another person, who would you be? Alive or dead, today or at any time period.  This one is really hard, but I would probably say Thomas Jefferson, or another founding father.  I am obsessed with the Constitution, so Early America is a great period for me.

    Hmm...your chart looks kind of complicated. What happened on CD 14/15? Your post-O temps are in range with a lot of your pre-O temps. Maybe next cycle (if things don't work out this time around) you can try temping vaginally?

    I discarded cd 14 and 15 because I temped at 8:45 and 9 compared to 5 am. Felt like maybe that was why it was such a big temp difference

    Rants/Raves/Chart Stalks: I had some spotting, nothing too crazy, but my temps took a nose dive this morning. All the af signs. 5 day lp?! Seriously started to cry when I saw it. This was out first month allowed to try again. We were so confident with our timing too.

    GTKY: If you could spend a day as another person, who would you be? Alive or dead, today or at any time period.

  • Hmm...I would think as long as you were asleep at least 3 hours and temped as soon as you woke it would still be pretty accurate. I temp anywhere between 6-9 am depending on whether I worked the night before (late to sleep, late to wake), or went to bed at a normal time on a night off. My chart has a lot of open circles because of this, but still has a clear pattern and temp shift. If you put those two back in does it eliminate your crosshairs?

    Month/Cycle: 8/11

    CD/DPO:17/3

    Timing:-3,-2,-1,+1

    Testing plans: Who knows - it's all about self control, which I don't have.

    Rants/Raves/Chart Stalks: Tomorrow, I will enter month #9 of TTC.  Sometimes I think I'm handling the stress better than before and other times worse.  I try to stay rational and hopeful, but not stupidly optimistic.  It's hard not to obsess about every little thing.  What you eat, how much you exercise, should I not drink, should I give up sushi, etc.  Trying to have the right attitude and stay busy.

    GTKY: If you could spend a day as another person, who would you be? Alive or dead, today or at any time period.

    Timing: -2, 0

    Testing plans: Waiting for 18 high temps

    Rants/Raves/Chart Stalks: My chart is making me a little crazy.  Every month around day 14 or 15, I get one really low temp that makes FF think I'm ovulating.  I use a Mabis orally, and temp at the same time every day.  This month I am pretty sure that day 15 was O day, but last month it took me until 17 DPO to start wondering if FF was wrong about the date it picked.  Eventually I got my period and realized FF was fooled by the low temp on day 14, when I really must have ovulated more like day 20 (my luteal phase is not 18 days long - more like 12 days). I had to set O date manually, which I'm still a little uncomfortable about.  That was all last month, but I'm worried that it could happen again.  My "high" post-O temps just aren't very high, and it makes me wonder if I'm still WTO.  Does anyone have any thoughts?  I've attached July's chart as well, so you can see what I mean....

    GTKY: If you could spend a day as another person, who would you be? Alive or dead, today or at any time period.  I'll have to think about this one.  I'm leaning toward a queen.  Who wouldn't want to be Queen for a Day?

    Rants/Raves/Chart Stalks: Just started temping this month.  I bought the BBT from target and it doesn't seem to be a whole lot accurate.   Got some terrible reviews online and I wish I didn't buy it! When I am out for this month, I am getting a new one.  My sleep has been very much off, waking up 1-2-3 AM multiple times; so my temps are probably a little off.  FF marked my O day as CD 17.  For some reason I feel like it was CD 16 or very early on CD 17.  I got my very first OPK positive on CD 16 around 11AM, and by the evening it was completely gone.  CD 17 my CM was almost dry-TMI LOL.  I didn't know my O day prior, as this was my first month temping, so I aimed the BD to be for CD 14 :( I will deff keep using the BBT and the OPK-as now I know how to use it.  My OPK were all negative and I figured I just wasn't catching the surge.  I've had some weird symptoms, but not thinking to much of it until its BFP :) Bloating, left sided pelvic pain, and a nose bleed yesterday, sore boobs today.  I could contribute them to many other things too.

    How are you so sure about your LP? Along with your temp rise on the 14th, other signs in your chart also suggest O on the 15th for last month (c.f. CP, Ovulation pain).

    vinerie (edited) Well I know because i've been off BCP for two years.  It made me very sick and have hormonal issues.  Long Story! I feel so much better now though.  

    I've kept track of my AF for two years (to basically know when I was expecting it) on an app.  When I got off BCP I didn't know when to expect it.  My average cycle is 26 days and this app is always within a day or two of my expected AF, mostly always correct.  It gives me an "average cycle" length.  So I know my cycle should be 26 days or 27-28 at the latest.  

    I've had this right sided exactly where my O should be since CD 16.  Its become less, but every afternoon i've had a little twinge/burning of pain from that one side.  So I'm not really sure what O pain is-but I would assume that is it.  Every day it's been less and less, but i've had it since I ovulated.  Earlier CD 16 it last for hours, now it comes and goes throughout the day.  

    CD 14 I had the EWCM. I dried up for a day and it came back CD 16 prompting me to take and get a pos OPK.  Its so weird lol i'm just hoping for the best haha.

    P.S. TY for looking at my chart :)

  • I do.  Sorry I posted my TWW post and was responding to someone else!  Got to learn how to do the @raesmith9 thing :)
  •     
  • @vinerie

    I should have been clearer.  I'm not actually sure of my LP, but my cycles tend to be more average length (28-29 days).  July was quite a long cycle for me. 

    Prior to temping, signs (cm mostly - didn't check anything else until July) pointed to O at the usual time (day 14 - 17 or so).  Nothing leads me to think I have a freakishly long LP.  I would have to ovulate around day 10 of my cycle if that were the case, and CM always comes later than that.

    So long story short, I'm not sure at all.  Based on July chart ( when I started temping), it seems that my LP would have to be either 18 days, 12 days or 8 days.  I'm guessing those numbers based on the days that there was a noticeable temp shift. Very unscientific, which makes me kind of uncomfortable.  I feel like I'm just flailing about with guesses (because I am?).

    Although I didn't record it, I did POAS in July at 15 dpo, and it was negative.  So I'm fairly certain it wasn't a CP or something like that messing with my LP.

    No worries on the misunderstanding! I am on CD 27 (13 DPO), my period is supposed to be here today or tomorrow and it is not here; safe to say I am obsessing about all things fertility related. SO, since you already thanked me for viewing your chart and I am in desperate need of tearing my eyes away from my own chart, I stalked yours! 

    It seems like you have a good handle on your O date. FF gave you dotted CH for 17, but I agree with you that it could have been late on CD16 as you said. Since the CH are dotted, I think FF also recognized that not everything is matching up!

    FF uses more than just temps to determine your O date. Looks like you had fertile CM on the 15th and a temp shift, both of which combined give a pretty good guesstimate that FF was correct in July. Don't go by temp shifts alone, also pay attention to changes in your body. Also, maybe you should temp vaginally next cycle if it doesn't work out for this one? Might not have as many peaks and valleys that way.

    Thanks, @LizaKate1213. I might have to temp vaginally next month.
    I just can't believe my LP would be that long! But I guess I'll find out when this cycle is over. Thanks to everyone who stalked.

    @MegH128 Maybe just wait it out for a couple of days. Maybe it was a fluke? FX that tomorrow brings another high temp back up where the others were.
