UGH....stuck on 97.3

I'm still in the midst of my very long cycle (1st one off of BCP) and I haven't ovulated yet. What's bugging me is that my temps are kind of stuck on 97.3. I hate that number and I just want to fling the darn thermometer out the window each morning when I see it. I almost gave up temping the other day BUT I knew I'd be POAS like a madwoman and that would replace my insanity. LOL


Is it common to be kind of flat in your cycle prior to Oing? It's just discouraging that my body is doing NOTHING but sitting in idle mode.


Also, DS comes each morning around 3-4am and gets in our bed. It doesn't disturb me too much but I'm aware of it and I wake up at 6am each day. Would that affect anything? I'm temping perfectly on time, using a BBT, and changed the battery the other day to make sure it wasn't broken. I know it's my body but it's frustrating. I can handle seeing AF each month over having nothing going on!


TIA,

Well, you're not flat-lined, so I wouldn't say your totally stuck ;-)

Thanks for your input. I sooo need to chill out. It could be worse and so far the only issue I'm fighting is the fact that I just stopped BCP. I could be dealing with much more challenging issues but so far I'm not. One good thing is yesterday I saw EWCM for the first time since I stopped BCP. I know it doesn't mean that I will definitely O but it's a good sign that my body is trying to.


Thanks!

Your chart is looking good. Hopefully that CM buildup and downward trend in your temps means that O is on the way! I doubt that your little guy is disturbing your morning temp, but some women are more sensitive to that sort of thing than others are. I can temp after an early morning trip to the potty without any harm. When I started charting I had a BF'd baby that woke frequently at night and I still got a very readable chart. Since your temps are relatively stable, I highly doubt that the small disturbance is impacting your chart.

I'm sending lots of O wishes your way!
