@bumpybump - I feel like there should be a generally accepted noise rule... not before 9am, not after 8pm. @laurad75 - YAY! Glad you get to move to TWW soon. Fx for you. Usually FF requires 3 days of temps above what will be the cover line to give you CHs.
Month/Cycle: 6/4CD: 17WAYDTGKU: temping, OPK, EOD at least, CM, preseed...R/R: We have a positive OPK folks (I only turned 1 positive last month)! And I'm home with DH finally, so we DO stand a chance! And to make it better, I got home on Saturday and we got a BD in both Saturday and yesterday. So we're looking good! I've mentioned before, but DH always gets stressed out when I tell him that we're close to peak, because then he focuses more on having to perform, than enjoying himself, at which point...we usually don't succeed. So I have to keep it to myself until we're past it I think. Do a little seducing... maybe even pull out something from 2 years ago at my bachelorette party. CS/Q: For those of you who have read TCOYF it says in chapter 6 (How to Observe and Chart Your Fertility) regarding Digital Thermometers "Also, it is imperative that it be accurate to within 1/10th degree Fahrenheit (for example 97.4) but do not use thermometers that measure to within 1/100th of a degree (for example 97.47), since the extra information is unnecessary and confusing." This seems opposite of what I've heard all along, that when entering temp in FF it's better to have a thermometer to the 1/100th. And isn't that the main difference in a basic thermometer and a BBT one?GTKY: In honor of Labor Day, what's the best and worst job you've had? I will third the waitressing as worst. Not because it was that bad, but because I wasn't very good at keeping track of all my tables, and all my other jobs have been pretty great.Best would probably either be lifeguarding in high school - because what high school girl doesn't want to sit outside in a 2 piece swimsuit (yep, we had 1 or 2 piece you could choose) by the pool all summer long. Or working at a daycare for the summers between college...we went on field trips with the kids twice a week to waterparks, zoos, etc. It was so fun!
@laurad75 Usually three days of sustained high temps gives you CH and that's when WTO'ers typically move over to TWW. This is because you could have a freak high temp day and go back down or you could have high + low (fallback rise like @linzrunz noted) + high again before you know for sure.
@felix08 That sucks. I'm sorry it's a tough day for you. Creepy internet hugs.
@KhRun17 I bought the Mabis from Amazon that most of the ladies on here recommend, but following TCOYF, I disregard anything past the tenths-place decimal (I just round it and track it - so today's 96.61 is charted as just 96.6). I've never had an issue since my temp shifts are always large enough to notice.
@littlebug2010 Depending on what happens I am prepared to "work from home" tomorrow thanks to Hermine. Have a great day off!
CM, OPKs, PNVs, CoQ10, B6, B12, vitamin D, green tea, avoiding soy.
R/R: No hurricane yet!
GTKY: My best job is probably where I am now -- intellectually stimulating, occasional travel, mostly great people to work with. My worst was my first job after college, which was at a tiny nonprofit run by its own personal General Franco. The entire thing was basically a vanity project to write about his pet issues but pretend to be objective, and he ran that place based on fear and insanity. I lasted three and a half months before being fired/quitting. The week after, two other people were fired/quit, and he was down to like three staff. It was insane.
