I've been charting my temps this cycle, but I am still unsure if I even ovulated. Up until cd 22 I was between 97.1 and 97.6, but then it switched and it was 97.8, 97.5, 97.9 and so on. But now, at what should be 7 DPO, I am down to 97.2 again. Is this just a normal dip, or is it likely that I didn't ovulate at all?
It seems like the change in my temps to begin with was a little low, but and I agreed that it probably meant ovulation, but now I doubt it.
I just feel like there isn't a single thing about me that is working the way it should - esp. not my reproductive parts!

hmmm?? I don't know. How long have u been charting? In previous charts after O is ur temps averaging 97.9ish? On my charts, before O, I average 97.7ish then after O I average 98.6ish. If 97.9ish is what ur temp averaging after O, since you think ur 7dpo, it could be an implantation dip!

How was your CM during the time leading up to when you think you O'd? I just started charting this month, and I'm finding it pretty confusing, I should be ovulating today or tomorrow, but EWCM has come to a complete stop this morning, and no temp. rise it seems. I understand your feeling of nothing working as it should, I have days like that too. Did you use an OPK?


Nikki - March 27

Thanks for your answers. I just started this month, because my periods started getting more and more irregular. My CM actually acted pretty much as it should, EWCM for about a week before I think I ovulated, and then it dried up like the day before my temps "went up."
Lilu, I wish my temps would be as normal as yours, but mine hasn't changed that much. I know its my first cycle with the charts, so I probably just need to be patient. But its so hard to do when it comes to TTC. Today I am baby sitting my cousins boy, he is 7 months old, and it makes my whole situation even more sad. He is just such a cute boy!
Kelley, are you charting on fertility-friend? Because I've been looking at the chart gallery, and there are many charts where the womans cm dried up a few days before the temps went up. I don't know, since I am new myself, and the CM part seems very confusing to me. But if you've only just dried up this morning, your temp might rise tomorrow?
I feel like I am getting so paranoid about my own body, every time I feel ANYTHING I think about what it might mean.
I'm actually really glad that there are places like this on the internet, without you guys I would go insane in a day!

That's true, I have heard of it sometimes taking a couple of days for temps to go up, but in my case, even the OPK was negative. I guess I'll just hope for the best this month.

Well, I guess this is it for me. Another day and my temp is 97.3 - my regular no-ovulation average. I am very sad, since this would either mean that I didn't ovulate or that AF is coming.

Aw, Nicki, I'm sorry, isn't it so frustrating, if you're anything like me, I had such high hopes charting this cycle, and now it seems my temp is up, but I never got a +opk ... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Sorry, had to get that out :-)
Nicki ... how long is your cycle normally?


Nikki - March 28

Well, I wouldn't give up hope for this cycle if I were you. I've heard that the opks can be unreliable - if your temp is up, and it stays up, that should mean that you have ovulated. Did you bd at the right time? If you did, I wish you good luck.
My average cycle is about 35 days, but I've had 28 day cycles for some time after I went of the the pill (last august), but since december it's been about 40 days. Not a good sign, I know.
I had gotten my hopes up too, just the thought of getting it all "under control." Now I just feel like I've discovered a problem, and I have to wait until my new insurance kicks in before I can even see my doctor. It's very frustrating and one cycle can seem like forever!
Have you and your dh had any tests done yet?
