Still nursing my 14-month-old son two to three times a day.

HI :) I don't know a lot about fertility friend but I do use it...I don't think it matters about your AF or forcing it to show that...It will just label whenever you start entering data as Day #1 - you want to see the number count at the bottom especially when you do O so you can count you luteal phase days, DPO etc. Once you do see AF it will just reset itself to Day 1 in reflection of your actual cycle. Until then, the number will just keep reflecting how many days you have charted...I hope this makes some sense to you -I am tired, nursing, and having trouble articulating!

As for testing, have you been taking your temps since your possible O and temp rise? I don't see your chart updated pat the 19th. If you have seen a consistent rise in temp since then, I would say you could start testing again now or expect to see AF soon. If you have not had 3 consistent high temps in a row it might be that you did not O yet at all. It is hard to really tell from your chart what may or may not be happening.

I look forward to hearing back from you and seeing what has happened over the last few days! Maybe you caught that elusive first egg! GOOD LUCK :)

Hi, your chart link didn't work for me. If you look on the menu at the left of your FF click "sharing" and then "home page set up". Your chart URL will be at the top of that page.

It doesn't matter that it says you had AF. Since you haven't had one it just needs a day to start your "cycle". It makes to difference.

Testing. I usually wait until I've felt pregnancy symptoms for a week before I test. I usually start getting symptoms around 7 DPO and 14 DPO is a pretty reliable day to test.
