Should I expect AF today or tomorrow?

Hi everyone :) I'm E, 29, and this is my first month off the pill and first month charting. DH and I didn't expect to fully TTC this first month, I really just wanted to learn my cycles, but I thought we ended up having pretty good timing and there was a chance we could have conceived.

But then my temp dropped yesterday and today. It's just barely hovering above my coverline. I have no feelings of AF coming, but no preg symptoms to speak of either. What do you think? Should I be expecting a visit from AF soon?

Thanks for your help.

E--it definitely looks like AF is on her way to me. It looks like you had a pretty substantial temp drop, which usually means she's on her way. I would be prepared, just in case.

Boooo ;) lol

Thanks for the response Liz, I bet you're right. It's probably a good thing, since I'm not sure I'm ready to be pregnant just yet. And month 2 of charting will be more interesting with one chart of data to compare it to! :) (trying to think positive here). Also glad to see both that I ovulated, and that a have a good length LP.

Thanks again! :)

I don't know if you can ever be 100% sure. I know I was in labor saying I wasn't sure I was ready. LOL But definitely having a previous chart will help you time things, since you'll have a better guess at O time. Good luck next month! :)

Thanks Sue. :) My temp was 97.33 again this morning (same as yesterday, still hanging out right above my coverline) and no sign of AF yet. She seems to be taking the loooong way to my house. lol :)

Thanks for the insights ladies! :) Just wanted to update that AF did in fact show today, after some good cramping and spotting last night.

On to Cycle 2! :)
