    Disclaimer: I was hoping someone else would start this because I blanked on a GTKY question


    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD: 16

    WAYDTGKU: everything

    R/R/CS: how long after a positive OPK does ovulation usually occur/ and how long does ovulation take? If you look at my chart, my temps are doing nothing. I had EWCM and a positive OPK yesterday, so I was praying for a temp drop today but it went up. I have had cramping yesterday and today, so no idea if my body is in the process of ovulating, or if this is gonna be anovulatory? Honestly at this point I'm discouraged and just want to start a new cycle.

    I will add that due to husband snoring, sometimes I end up moving to the spare bedroom around 2am. I make sure to have at least 3 hours of sleep before temping, but wondering if the different rooms are affecting my temps?

    Honestly, I'm the crazy person SS ovulation. Save me if I ever make it to TWW.

    GTKY: I'm not a huge drinker but I prefer wine to beer. My fav is Riesling. A lot of people are obsessed with that apothic red wine, but I don't get the buzz. For beer, it has to be fruit flavored--I LOVE frambois (sp?) and this raspberry flavored woodchuck

    WAYDTGKU: Everything

    R/R/CS: DS has been waking up every night and really messing up my temp. schedule. This morning I had a HUGE temp. rise, but I also drank a lot last night and temped after only 2-2/12 hours sleep. I'm not putting much weight in O having happened already even though its not normal for me to rise that high after drinking. 

    Q: Do you think booze and disrupted sleep would make my temp spike so drastically? I hate not knowing!  :s

    @JamieK1882 I don't know about the OPK question, as thats the only tool I don't utilize. Changing rooms could definitely mess with your temps.. 
    Looking at your chart, if you ignore the temps before CD9 (I usually ignore everything until after period when the temp drops then consider that my cover line), then it looks like you could have ovulated yesterday. Especially if you had positive OPK and EWCM. Like with my chart/temp issues right now, I wouldn't assume that for sure - just the way I personally see your temps.

    @JamieK1882 I believe ovulation can occur 24-48 hours after a positive opk, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Honestly, from someone who routinely ovulates on CD 25-30, day 16 is a little early to worry about an anovulatory cycle. Also remember that you can have multiple surges, along with fertile CM during your cycle, and not everyone gets a temp drop at O. Are there other reasons you might be thinking this cycle is anovulatory?

    Month/Cycle: 6/6

    CD: 9

    WAYDTGKU: temping, CM, CP, and maybe OPKs

    R/R/CS: I started back to temping this morning after taking a break during AF and giving myself through the weekend. Now I'm also back to staring at my chart!

    GTKY: I don't drink much, but I'll take a glass of sweet wine, or a margarita. I don't like beer at all.

    ****Question in R/R/CS****

    Month/Cycle: 2/2? (7 temping)

    CD: 4?

    WAYDTGKTFU: Temping, PNVs, green tea

    R/R/CS: I fear I might actually be losing it (small TMI coming).  On Friday, I started bleeding lightly, but since it was enough to use a tampon I marked it as CD 1.  Since then though, I've only been spotting the tiniest bit, very consistently but definitely not  enough for a pad or a tampon.  Usually I just spot for one day before starting my period, so whatever is going on is a deviation from the norm, which I know happens.

    My question, for data recording purposes, is whether you think FF could have been wrong on my O date last month.  I have an 11-12 day LP, and last month I had a second big temp shift on CD 19, which would put me actually due for my period tomorrow or the next day.  What I'm experiencing now would just be some pre-AF spotting, which seems pretty common in other women even if it's not something I've had before.  I just want to make sure I record the right CD 1 so my next chart isn't all messed up.  To answer anticipated questions, I don't really chart CM since I can't ever find any.  Most of the open circles are just around a half hour late, but the O-day temp was very late and I really don't trust it.  If I discard it, O is actually moved earlier, to CD 13.  I've never gotten solid crosshairs, presumably due to the lack of CM.  Think I'll try OPKs this time around.

    GTKY: I love craft beer, particularly Belgian beers.  Yummmmmm.

    EDIT: I am sorry the chart is huge!

    @JamieK1882, I believe that it's typical to ovulate between 24-36 hours after your first positive OPK. FWIW, per FF, my temp doesn't typically drop on my actual "O" day; it usually drops the day before FF gives me crosshairs.

    Month/Cycle: 6/6

    CD: 15


    R/R/CS: I got another high temp today, so as long as it stays above my theoretical cover line, FF will give me crosshairs tomorrow for either CD13 or CD14.

    GTKY: Wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot) is my drink of choice now. In college, I used to like vodka tonics.

    ETA: I'm not sure where I got the 24-36 hours...I'm pretty sure I read it somewhere but not sure where.

    WAYDTGKU: BBT, CM, PNV (and I do mean penis in vagina)

    R/R/CS: question - first month temping and I have one high temp on CD 9 due to DS being up ALL night and couldn't temp at my normal time. I temp'd about 3 hours later, which is what likely caused the spike. Should I throw out this data? Will it mess with my cover line?

    GTKY: what is your alcoholic drink of choice? Depends on the weather. I like craft beer and wine (red for winter, white for summer) and I also enjoy vodka in the summer mixed with grapefruit juice or pineapple juice.

    CD:DAY 45...


    R/R/CS: Ok, soooo I know I am being impatient, but just want to know what the recommendation is here if I go over 60 days...should I call my OB? I see a lot of "yes" when this question is asked here, but also some wait it out and your cycle needs time to regulate. I understand all of this, since I just went off BCP it may take a while, but just wanted some input...also, I drank this weekend, so although my temps went up, I believe it to be because of alcohol consumption and taking my temp way later than normal....

    @zoey1019 - Sorry you are having such a long cycle. I'm not sure when you should call OB/GYN (I guess it doesn't hurt to go ahead and call?), but I just wanted to give you creepy internet hugs.

    @difazette911 - I would select the disregard box for that temp in FF. That way, the temp isn't gone forever, but it doesn't mess up your cover line.

    @Jamiek1882 - To me, it looks like yesterday might have been your O day. However, I think it might be too early to truly tell. With the positive OPK, you might get a more significant temp spike tomorrow or the next day. I think the time after a positive OPK depends on the test. I know a positive wondfo means O is 24-48 hours away.

    Month/Cycle: 3/3 (1 TTCAL)

    CD: 22

    WAYDTGKU: all the things!

    R/R/CS: Pretty sure I O'ed yesterday. Positive OPK on Friday, temp spike this morning, and holy batman O pains last night. I think I may go ahead and move over to TWW tomorrow if my temp stays up. Love you guys, but I think I've been in the WTO for way too long and I'm too impatient to wait on the three days to confirm.

    GTKY: what is your alcoholic drink of choice?  This largely depends on the weather, my mood, and food choice. Lately it has been between red wine and porter beer.  We've also recently discovered this amazing drink with Bailey's, chocolate vodka, and milk. Like a white Russian but even more amazing.

    @mchrisgarcia-thank you! You gave me so much hope!

    @pretzel2plus1-I was thinking anovulatory only because my cycles are usually 27-29 days, however, this is based on me guessing and things I've read here. No idea honestly as this is my first cycle temping in a long time (since last time we TTC)

    @paturkey-I have been testing OPKs daily, but honestly wasn't sure how to log all of them. I have the hardest time telling if it is darker than the control line. For example, the positive yesterday was in the evening around 6:30pm. I took another this morning, and while the test line was still dark, now it looked slightly less dark than control. I didn't log it as a negative since I wasn't entirely sure, but I feel like yesterday evening was the only true "positive" I've gotten. Also, I've been meaning to ask you--are you from PA?

    CD: 66

    WAYDTGKU: In a holding pattern at the moment. Definitely still in limbo

    R/R/CS: After 9 months off of BC and 4 months after taking progesterone to jump start my cycle, I still haven't had regular AF (I've had one unmedicated cycle in 9 months and now that one's going 66 days). From temping and lack of AF, it has become apparent I am not ovulating. The most my regular GYN could do was Rx the progesterone, so I maxed out on what she was able to offer and she recommended I see a fertility specialist. Went last week and the specialist diagnosed me with PCOS. I was definitely caught off guard and am still processing it. I'm sad, but trying to rally. I know it doesn't mean we can't get KU, but realize it will be more of a challenge than we hoped.

    The specialist was very knowledgeable, so I'm hopeful about her plan. I'm waiting on some blood tests to come back, then we'll do another round of progesterone to kick-start AF, do femara on CD 3-7, then timed intercourse CD 10-16. She'll monitor my follicles via U/S throughout and mentioned doing a trigger shot if she determines I need an extra boost. She'll also test progesterone levels post O to ensure they can maintain a pregnancy if one were to occur.

    And, bonus - my insurance is going to cover a good chunk of this. Silver linings...

    R/R/CS: So, I got crosshairs this morning for CD8. The one temp that I'm really unsure of is yesterday's. I hadn't slept well at all and had a few beers the night before. I typically O between CD 18 & 20. So this was a bug surprise. My question.... Would you disregard yesterday's temp?

    @dogmommy85 Sorry about CD1 :/

    ***Sort of a question in R/R/CS***

    <b>Month/Cycle</b>: 18 temping / 6 ntnp / 3 ttd

    <b>CD</b>: 9

    <b>WAYDTGKU</b>: Started OPK's this cycle, (Wondfos and CBEAdv just to compare), Temping, Charting on paper, CM/CP, PNVs, DHA, Calcium, all the teas, no coffee, stopping aluminum antiperspirant, starting blue mucinex... oh ya, maybe throw a little P at the V at some point.  Lots of chocolate.

    <b>R/R/CS</b>: My cycles vary from 27-30 days, so I hope today was a good day to start the CBEAdv.  The package said use your shortest cycle in the last 6 months, so not sure if that's really 27 or 28, and I had some light pinkish discharge still on CD7 I think, so that would have just been a waste.  Sort of seeing this month as an OPK experiment to see what happens.  So far all negative.

    Temp spiked after AF and is heading down now.  I was thinking I would probably start the Mucinex today after getting a baseline CM reading, and then I'm sort of figuring I can't put too much weight on CM after I start the Mucinex.  So honestly, now I'm just thinking out loud, but maybe I wait to try the mucinex until after this, "experimental," month, bc that way I could be watching the OPK's with regard to my temps and CM without having the mucinex throw things off. <b>Any thoughts on that?</b>

    Also, I decided to try the Soapwalla deodorant cream, even though it's a cream and not a stick form.  I had heard good things about it and was just getting sucked into a vortex of handmade soap and beauty products on etsy until I found another page with reviews that rated it highly and also said is has a 0 EWG score (which is good) as far as potentially problematic ingredients.  Today I see, this lady also did her own trials <b></b> so I might try the Lavilin rollon (available at Amazon), (which again, I just saw on a chatelaine list as well), if I feel like the cream application is not working for me.  It is aluminum and paraben free, looks like, but also looks like it has a lot of ingredients I can't pronounce so... I'm hoping the soapwalla is a winner!

    <b>GTKY</b>: I'm allergic.

    @Ash9614 it sounds like the specialist has a good plan set out, and it's really good you are in the right hands now! Although your diagnosis is not what you were looking for its great that you will be able to get the help you need now, with a professionals insight and careful monitoring you will definitely have a better shot! :) FX for you!

    @ShinyPenny82 I would just wait it out and see what your temps do. If they fall back down FF with take the cross hairs away anyway. 

    @Zoey1019 I would say definitely call your OB if your go 60 days without AF or BFP. They can give you Provera to jump start your cycle. I don't think there's any use in waiting longer if you don't have to. That's just my opinion though!

    @Xstatic3333   I think you actually O'd CD 19 instead of 15. Your current coverline makes no sense to me because it is only higher than one temp. What happens if you discard a temp from CD 17 or 18? Those might be throwing FF off.

    Month/Cycle: 5/6

    WAYDTGKU: Temping, waiting for my period to be done

    R/R/CS: **TMI** My period is being really weird so far. Yesterday it was off and on, but still more than spotting, which was odd. Today it was really clotty and normally it is much heavier by now. Is the clottiness something to worry about?

    GTKY: what is your alcoholic drink of choice?
    I really dislike alcohol. If I have to choose something, then mimosas. But almost any drink I try, I think it would taste much better without alcohol in it lol.
  • Options
    @DiFazette911 You could tick "discard" for the temp for now, and add it back later. I suspect FF can see through that variation and they suggest leaving things alone, but I've got a couple fever temps this cycle that I plan to keep out.

    @Zoey1019 I'd make an appointment with the doc if I got to 60 days. FX you won't need to.

    @JamieK1882 Haha, nope, not from PA but I'm sure lots of people read my SN that way. It's actually just a mispronounciation of my Hungarian maiden name.

    @dogmommy85 all the wine for you!

    @Ash9614 I'm sorry you got an unexpected diagnosis but I'm glad that you have a great specialist and a plan moving forward. Hugs!

    @ShinyPenny82 I'd leave the temp as is, but ignore the CH and keep HIO if this is such an apparently early O. FF might take them away and I wouldn't want you to be bummed later that you missed your FW.

    @Marley629 4 am? I'm so sorry.

    R/R/CS:  DH leaves tomorrow and is going to be gone for the rest of the week. Tonight is our last shot for this week unless O is delayed until the coming weekend or later. I'm really praying I O today or tomorrow, but I don't really have much hope anymore. *sigh* I give up. 

    GTKY: what is your alcoholic drink of choice?  Pimm's Cup! I also really enjoy a proper whiskey sour made with egg white and the works. Whiskey and sour mix is not acceptable.

    @MissAmeliaPond how could I forget a Pimm's cup!! I LOVE them in the summer!

    @Zoey1019 My two cents, having just come off a 66 day cycle...I made an appt to see my Dr. around day 55, but she couldn't get me in for two weeks, and now I'm kinda glad, since my body got itself into gear! I just hated the idea of "artifically" starting a cycle if I didn't have to. But for sure worth discussing with your doc!
    ETA: if I hadn't started by my Dr. appt I totally would have jump started myself though!

    R/R/CS: trying for ED has been a big failure. Kudos to anyone that can make that happen. We're doing pretty well with eod so hopefully that's enough. Also O seems to be coming a little late. Haven't had my usual temp dip or positive opk yet.

    @bcooke314 thanks so, so much for taking a look at my chart. Sorry you're having a confusing AF as well.

    Ditching my CD 18 and/or 19 temps doesn't change the crosshairs. Still, all things considered, I think ovulating later than usual is the most likely scenario for what is going on with me. I'll probably change my false CD1 to spotting in FF and either move back to TWW tomorrow or just sit out the daily threads until AF shows.

    This could be a mixed blessing, as starting AF later will make it less likely for me to be travelling during my next cycle's FW.
  • Options
    @Zoey1019 there is still hope. I just had a 55 day cycle, and FF put dotted CH on CD 45. Depending on how long the wait is, I would schedule with my OB and then you can always cancel if AF shows.

    Month/Cycle:  3/2

    CD:  1

    WAYDTGKU:  Just waiting on AF to leave.

    R/R/CS:  I'm probably odd for this but I'm happy AF is here. My last cycle, first PP, was hell on Earth. I couldn't figure anything out, my chart was all over the place, had 5 different sets of CH given and taken away. It is also nice to not feel like i'm in limbo anymore. 

    Rant: My grandfather passed yesterday. While it is hard to think about him not being here, I feel terribly callous about being happy about it. He had dementia really bad for years, and was constantly asking to go so he could be with his parents/siblings/children who are all gone. But, at least he got to meet his Great Grandson before he went.

    GTKY: what is your alcoholic drink of choice?
    Since H converted to being LDS we cut out alcohol. Before we did that, my favorite mixed drink was a Gummy Bear. Favorite bottled drink was Mikes Hard blood orange.
