Re: Weekly Chart Stalk Thread 2/13

  • Okay guys:


    So FF says I O'd on CD13 but I had thought it was on CD15. The TCOYF app says I ovulated on CD16 so I'm just super confused! What do you guys think??
  • @shortstack930 I would guess CD15 at the latest. Did you not take anymore OPKs after your first positive, or was it a CBAD so you couldn't test again? Try putting in a second positive on CD 14 and see if it moves the CHs.

    I stopped taking the OPKs after I got the one positive.  Last month I O'd two days after the positive so based on that and my CM/CP I thought it was later. Adding the second positive pushes the CH to CD15--which would match up with the other signs. Thanks!

  • @shortstack930 I think CD15 is more likely.

  • I'm going with cd 15. I'm surprised FF even gave dotted CHs for cd 13 on an open circle and two temps below CL added
    BusinessWifeeggplantface
  • @beachbunnyxo123 yup that's why I was surprised too! CD15 just seemed so much more likely. 

    Thanks, ladies!

  • Ok, here goes. I am slightly starting to lose it because I feel as if all signs point to O on either CD13 or 14, EXCEPT for my temps.

    So I had my positive OPK on CD12, and in past cycles O has always been the next day after the positive. By CD14 my CM had made the transition from watery to creamy, which usually happens to me either the day of or day after O. However, my temps have not made it to anything higher than pre-O until today on CD17. I played around with FF, and if I continue to put in higher temps I get CH for CD16, but this is later than usual for me and, at least to me, doesn't seem to match up with my other signs. Could there be something weird going on here, or do I need to just suck it up and accept O on CD16? I think I may just be bitter because the shift from O on CD13 or 14 to O on CD16 takes my timing from pretty decent to pretty shitty...

  • @Pinky917 Hmm. You do have a sizable jump CD13 to 14, so I would like to say it's that long with your other signs. Where is your coverline usually? I'm wondering if you are having a slow rise starting CD14 but CD13 was indeed O. (And hoping it was!)

  • @adirat Honestly my coverline has always been slightly varied, but the lowest has been just under 97.1 and the highest has been just over 97.4. I'm still really holding out that O was earlier! I looked at my timing for CD16 and actually started to tear up. Sad, I know...

  • @Pinky917 I totally understand. It's already so stressful so thinking that you didn't do everything you could is the worst! I really do think CD13 is likely, though. CM and OPK lines up, and there is a temp jump -- just not a big one. Many of us have had slow rises before. It happens. FX!

  • @Pinky917 I'm with @adirat I think its CD13 with a slow rise, I think the fact that your slow rise temps are lower than your pre-O temps is what is messing with FF. you can just manually override and give yourself cx for CD13

    FF finally gave me dotted CH today and I don't know that I agree. I am new to temping, I have only done it 3 cycles and am still pretty clueless. My CM was nonexistent because of all the cold medicine I had to take that week. There are so many open circles because I would wake up at random times stressed out about temping but have to do it because it was only an hour or two until normal time. I am also a mouth breather at night. It seems strange me to I would O on cd17. Is there anything here to suggest I may have O'ed earlier? I'm usually pretty close to cd14.

  • @ktcakes87 It isn't unusual for an illness to delay O, so if you had a serious cold it wouldn't surprise me to see O delayed a couple days past your usual. Based on temps I think CD17 is correct.
