GTKY: let's see FF charts!

S/o ladies still temping after their bfp, wanted to see what our charts looked like - it was my first month temping and it was so helpful for me - I am 100% sure if I wasn't temping I wouldn't be ku'd here - we figured we were covered and then a day later the temp drop made me rethink that and got one last session in.

Also, it'd be fun to track outcome of sex (gender reveals) when they start rolling in! 

Here's mine:

    Not quite sure I'm ready to give up temping but I haven't been able to the last two mornings due to an insane work schedule... so this morning I POAS again


    Edit: Not quite sure why it didn't show up the first time.  And sorry if it's huge... mobile!

    I finally stopped temping this morning. Still peeing on sticks (like @GeorgiaWife6912 said, can't stop, won't stop). But here's my chart for this month. It was also my first month temping and I found it super helpful!

    @GeorgiaWife6912 we both found out so early! 
    @RunRestRepeat your chart is similar to mine in that ovulation was confirmed after LH surge.

     @satsumasandlemons I actually got a faint line on 8dpo but I thought it was an evap line because I couldn't see it until the test dried, which of course was out of the time limits.  At 9dpo I was a full on line though, no squinting!

    ETA: FF has also made my CHs dotted in the last couple of days, I think with the addition of the fertile CM after O?  They were solid until a day or so ago.

    @GeorgiaWife6912 yeah, me too - i got the faintest of lines on 8dpo and could swear i could see it but photos couldn't really capture it. I counted it anyways :) I still have that test from 8dpo and i dunno, it's clear to me!
    No question about 9dpo here, either.

    My chart with my son was much more straightforward (very obviously triphasic following implantation), but I knew this time around that I was pregnant a week before I turned the test (which, as you can see, is a very, very obvious positive). Still, I was patient and waited until the day my period was due to pee on a stick. The second line showed up as soon as the urine hit it and before the control line even had a chance to show.

    Just a word of warning about temping: I know it's a comfort thing and often done out of habit, but I would be careful about continuing to do so for much longer. Temps become erratic after a while, even though you're pregnant, because progesterone is less and less needed to support the pregnancy as the placenta forms and starts to take over (around week 9). Temps can go down and vary quite a bit over that time and I don't want anyone to panic because of dips in their chart. Once you get your BFP, the chart doesn't mean much anymore.

    @GeorgiaWife6912 FF changed my crosshairs to dotted because of fertile CM after O as well.

    I stopped temping a few days after my BFP because like @ktewart said it would mess with my mind.  This was also my first month temping and I think it helped a lot.  @Pepper16  I'm still peeing on wondfos and have them taped to a sheet of paper that I look at every day lol. I call it my pee worksheet.

    @ktewart @SpongeWorthy I will stop temping soon, but I tested so early, I'm not even to my missed period yet.  I know that it can fluctuate but I just wanted AF to be officially late before I stopped temping and I usually have a 14 day luteal phase.

    @GeorgiaWife6912 Totally understand. I temped until AF was late as well. The positive pregnancy test still doesn't feel real!

    I felt pretty good about my chart but I second guessed the entire time.

    @pepper16 @SpongeWorthy OMG a pee worksheet! Why didn't I think of that? Now I have to convince myself that it would be an extra dose of crazy to dig them out of the garbage...

    I did yell to DH from the bathroom this morning that my lines were darkening nicely. He thinks I've lost it...

    I stopped temping after my BFP because I haven't slept well since because of dental pain. But here was my chart through then. Heh. Looking at it, I really haven't slept normally after O.

    @Pepper16 @SpongeWorthy I'm still testing daily and keeping all my wondfos to see the progression. I got a really nice line on a FR Rapid Result this morning. Very exciting lol @RunRestRepeat there are crazier things...
