Well I know why, I've not been good about tracking my CM as I "should". But it actually my temps that have be baffled right now. Right now O date is CD 22, which is good, as the temps past that are definitively post-O temps for me. Buuuuuut (its a big one) the temps taken on CD 21 and 22 were taken at 3:30am and with changes at work I am typically getting up by about 7am. I know from previous months that that particular time difference equals about a full degree temp change for me. The others around it were all take around 7am. If I manually adjust them by that full degree, my O date is changed to CD 17. So what to do, what to do. I know what to do, which is leave it the heck alone and let it sort itself out once I know for sure that I am late or AF shows up.

Here's a link to my chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/35c587

Oy...well remember that often the most frustrating cycles are also the most "fruitful"...so maybe that means this is your lucky cycle! We can hope anyways, right? Good luck...&&&Fingers Crossed&&& for you.
