Charting question
Thu, 04-10-2003 - 8:55am
Here are both my charts. One done with ovusoft and one with Fertility Friend. The ovusoft one is correcting my temps b/c I never wake up at the same time. The FF one does not do this. That is why the temps are different on both charts. Ovusoft says I ovulated this month. FF so far says I didn't. I don't know??? Any ideas? BTW, there will never be a time when I can get up at the same time everyday. My son wakes at different times every morning ranging from as early as 2:30/3:00AM - 7:00AM. If you can help I'd appreciate it. I'm also trying to decide which chart is best for me to use. I'm leaning towards the Ovusoft one b/c it does do the "temp Correct" for me. What are your opinions on this?

Thanks so much!

Well, I personally don't think you've "o"d. There's only so much these charting programs can do, and if you aren't consistent in your waking patterns then I would say maybe you shouldn't temp? It's really not representative of your BBT. However, what you do have is a nice recording of cm. This is really the best representation of your fertile period. I think according to your cm, ovusoft is incorrect in your "o" day. If your EWCM has stopped, I would guess that you have probably "o"d just yesterday-cd16.

JMHO! (just my humble opinion!)

I'm not sure on your charts, but I wanted to thank you for the Ovulate website. I find it more informative than FF. I actually like go on both sites, being that I am not tracking my temps and only my days.

Thank you again and GL to you!!!

I read a posting on one of the other boards where someone had the same problem. She decided to just get up at 2am every day to chart to make sure the temps were right. That stinks......but if it works--great!

Good luck

I don't know when you ovulated. Like the others said it's not reflective of your BBT.

May I make a suggestion? Are you asleep by 11pm nightly? If you are you can make 3am your waking temp time. Correct me if I am wrong ladies you need 4 hours of sleep right? That way you can set an alarm for 3 take your temp and go back to sleep. Then you will have a real BBT charted.

I agree with the other poster if you can't find a way to come up with a single time for waking it's not worth your energy to temp.
