Well, I woke up the same time this morning and took my temp (3 mornings in a row same time).

Haha, I'm impressed you were able to forget to OPK! Every morning I feel like that little pee cup is staring at me - "pee in me! pee in me!" If you never got a + OPK, maybe next time you should try to test late morning or afternoon? I've heard of some people getting better results then. It's never worked for me personally because I tend to drink too much water during the day. I just looked at your chart, is it possible you haven't O'd yet and that's why no + OPK? I usually O around CD 19 so I don't get a positive until CD 17 or so. Your temps don't look super high yet.

Everything I've read says you should use OPKs later in the day, not with FMU, because the LH surge occurs in the morning, so it doesn't make it into your urine until later in the day. I stop drinking fluids and hold my pee for about 4 hours when I'm using OPKs. I agree with the PP that your chart isn't showing that you Oed yet. I'd keep testing and temping and BDing, just in case.

Yahoo for 3 days of consistent temping! High fives ;) I agree you probably haven't O'd either...give dh a break if he really needs it & then get back to business tomorrow! Sometimes our hubbies need to just do it eod so they're not completely worn out by O time. Plus, I'd keep bd'ing until FF gives you crosshairs (the red line showing when you O'd). Good luck :)

Oh oh! I see FF gave you crosshairs! Looks like you can tell DH to take a breather. ;) Weird though about your OPKs... I think PP is right, next cycle (if there is one) you should do OPK in the afternoon though. I struggle with not drinking fluids in the afternoon... in order to have EWCM you need to be well hydrated so it seems silly to me to stop drinking. Then if I guzzle fluids in the evening to make up for it I have to get up to pee in the middle of the night and then my temp is messed up! Geez louise. Who knew this was so much work?

Yeah... I wasn't sure if I would get the cross lines.
