Okay, bear with me ladies because I'm about to do the "what if?" game.

Thanks! That's pretty useful, in fact. I am waiting until Tuesday before I try and test again--so long as my temps. stay up. I am just a little bewildered that my temperature was higher this morning. I'm very curious what it does tomorrow.

It is all about what your 'usual' is. Like, my temps ALWAYS fall 1-2 days before my period starts, so I'd say if your temps keep up, you're still in the game. Good luck, let us know what happens!! :smileyhappy:

I hate the whole qualitative or quantitative thing! It drives me bananas! Is there HCG or not? Just tell me! I don't care if it is like 2. If it is there then tell me it is there. You don't have to tell me I am pregnant. Just tell me if there is any hormone at all or not. So frustrating! Anyway your temps still look good so keep hanging in there. Hopefully you will have a BFP soon!

Oddly enough, my temp went up again today at 13 DPO. I had prepared myself for the plummet today--because I figured it should be coming soon-- and there was a higher temp. What the heck?! I figure either (a) maybe I am pregnant and I implanted late enough that I couldn't get a positive when I tested or more likely (b) I'm not pregnant but will have a longer luteal phase and the temp is getting ready to decline OR it will just sharply drop off the day that I start the next cycle.

I hate prescribing more hope to it. DH and I DTD yesterday and afterwords I noticed a light pink sheen when I wiped for a while afterwords. I thought for sure AF was going to start today and that it was the beginning but it never escalated to full on spotting even. I checked my cervical area and found no bright blood but (maybe TMI) a small little glob of brownish stuff. When I say small I mean smaller than a pin head even. I'm not sure what to make of it all! I also got insanely nauseated yesterday.

I think part of the reason I'm so sad that all indicators are a negative thus far is also because I feel crazy. I don't usually have symptoms like this from a non-birth control cycle. I never have them for this long. I feel like I'm losing my mind, so I wish there was at least a valid reason for it! lol

As of today, 13 dpo, temp is still up. Highest one yet. Not sure if that is just setting me up for the downfall, or what. lol

I saw your response to both of those. Man this chart is driving me nuts. I have the feeling that if tomorrow's temp goes down then I might just be having a longer luteal phase and that will definitely be what puts me out this cycle. I do have more early pregnancy test.com cheapies I can use to test again but I just haven't had it in me to do. I feel like if I take a test I am acknowledging the hope, and I don't want to see another negative. That waiting, staring, and trying to find a line drives me crazy :(
