Attn Charting Experts! Is FF off 2dpo?

Hello!

I am of course being hopeful beyond reason, but I am hoping someone can look at my chart and tell me what they think.

I am BFing a 24 mo a couple of times a day and once at night, thus the erratic BBTs.

I think I am finally Oing again!!! I am ecstatic that FF gave me CHs (nevermind that they are blue - I didn't override anything!).

So, since our BD schedule has been less than stellar the past two weeks, I am hoping I actually Od 2 days earlier than FF is suggesting...

Any thoughts?

Thank you!!!

Thank you!

Hello - yes, I do have a Basal Body Therm - I actually have two (I was going to ditch my old one when CD1 showed)! I have been tracking my new therm on the cycle labeled August 1, 2009. I also switched to temping vaginally a few days ago, and the strange thing is that now both therms are the same every day!?!?!

Well, FF decided that I O'd three days ago now... even gave me solid red lines! I'll take it, even if we didn't get more than one BD in. I still have a chance!

Now I can only hope my temp stays up for another week!

Thanks again.

Well, you at least have sustained higher temps, and it's looking like a cm dry-up as well.

No, sorry I am confusing - both therms are giving me the same temps. I only temp vaginally now. I am not too thrilled to hear it is about a one degree difference, though... My temps went up when I switched from mouth temping. Now I am suspecting that I didn't O... :(

Sue,

I know - I didn't see any signs of this cycle ending - so I just switched, but should have realized it would be different. I was just so frustrated with my mouth temps being different on two therms, even when I used them both at the same time. I am using two therms until CD1, then I will stick with my new one.

I did see my doctor in May. She ran every blood test in the book, and everything came back normal. She put me on BCPs for three months to try to jumpstart my cycles... But I felt SO sick the first month that I didn't do months 2 & 3. I was also nervous about my DD getting the hormones through the BFing.

She thinks I am just very affected by the prolactin from BFing, and that I need to probably wean to have fertility return. I was hoping I wouldn't have to...

Oh, I was also on the mini-pill from 6 wkd PP until DD was 20 mo. I will never do that again!

Thanks for all of your help. I have to figure out what to do. :(

Well, unless you have a definite babymaking timetable, I wouldn't give up EBF unless you and your

Sue,

Thank you!

I agree wholeheartedly with you - I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and just came to the conclusion this week that I need to focus on DD and just let #2 happen when it happens.

Ironically, DD has not asked to nurse all day today - :(

I am very sad, but I know a lot of it is the hormones!!!

Thanks again, and I'll keep you posted!

I am an absolute wreck today. I don't know if it is entirely the hormones, or just a bad night of sleep. DD slept fine, I just didn't.

She did nurse this morning... twice now. :) I should feel better, but I am crying over nothing!!!

Thanks again for all of your support.
