Chart question?????
11
Tue, 12-01-2009 - 9:44pm

I was feeling pretty good about my chart the past several days, as temps seemed to be rising nicely. But the past 2 days, they are going down-- only .1 degree, but still down... I have tried to be consistent in the timing of temp, but sometimes it's just down-right impossible.

I'm just wondering if this downward trend is a sign that there's no chance of pregnancy, if it's normal to fluxuate some, or is it ok as long as it stays above the coverline.... I basically want to know if my chart looks promising or not-- or is it still too early at only 7 dpo to start raising the white flag and admitting defeat... AGAIN!!!???

Thanks ladies!! feeling that heavy weight of upset creeping in... have to go to dinner tomorrow night with the friend that was 7 weeks ahead of me before my m/c... she's getting bigger and due in 5 weeks, and, well... i'm not :o( i'm so sad and i don't want to be!! i really am so happy for her, but i can't get it out of my head. I asked DH tonight if he ever thinks about the fact that she's due in 5 weeks and we would be due in 12.. i got the "what the hell are you talking about look" so i'm thinking that means NO!! sorry! just needed to vent.. really need to cry but don't want DH asking what's wrong b/c he thinks i'm ridiculous sometimes...

alrighty- off to nurse the little love of my life :o) which always puts a smile on my face!

your chart still looks good to me. looks pretty certain you O'd and the temps are still high enough. a dip around now could be implantation. i think its best to look at the big picture and with charting its not always possible to see what is happening until a few days later.


also i completely understand how you must be feeling about your friend. men just dont get it


im stalking you xxx

Your chart looks good to me - I think that the temp fluctuations are fine as long as they don't dip too low. Typically you will know when you see it that it is too low before you even put it on the chart.

Don't despair - there is much hope yet! Your Dh sounds like mine and every other one on this board - they don't get it :)

Thanks Ladies!!

I'm still hopeful for my chart and sort of not looking forward to dinner tonight, but I can't let this consume me :o) off to work before dinner which is always good for me and makes me happy... so maybe that will help my mood.

Hi Karen Lynn - I think your chart looks good! your temp was very high today!! Its so hard to wait to see what the overall picture is and not worry about each temp day by day...I was having dreams about taking my temp I was so anxious!! I was dreaming of numbers, forgetting to take it, taking it at the wrong time...and now I still cant put down the thermometer! LOL!

Kathy,

Thanks for the encouragement. I was pleased with the high temp this a.m., but didn't know about that last night :o) I guess "the big picture" is something i'll have to work on!!

I work with children with Autism in their homes. I used to consult in school districts also, but gave that up for DS. I have worked with some of my "kids" for 5 years at home and couldn't imagine leaving them, so I stuck with them. I work from home a few hours a week too, but that's not nearly as much fun! I did have a good time at work, which led to a good dinner..

I did have a good time at dinner... sort of bittersweet... but i am happy for her... and while i sat there admiring her growing belly, she was admiring my adorable little boy... so i had a moment of "relief"--- I really am the lucky one!! :o)

Take care,
karen lynn

Hey Karen Lynn - I am glad your dinner went well and was not too painful. I think for me I always find the idea or thought of hanging out with somebody pregnant is always worse then the reality. Our minds can really work things up into a frenzy - well mine can anyways!

You have an amazing job - lucky you can help kids that need it so much. Very cool.

Hugs, Jasmine

Erin,

Thank you!! I went to an annual 'big get together' with a bunch of friends tonight, where my preggo friend was-- and I tried to swallow my hurt, then another friend came in with her new baby and to top it off, during the festive holiday toast: YEP! another couple announced their good news-- they're expecting! I just wanted to crawl away and cry!

I think AF must be coming- I've been so emotional the last day or two.. the crying and the sadness are just too much for me. I'm usually a very upbeat and happy person... so i hate feeling like this..

My nephew has autism, he just turned 8 a few weeks ago.. sounds very much like your 8 year old... he's very social, but didn't speak until almost 3, so he has some catching up to do-- that's actually how I met DH-- I was teaching this adorable little boy and his mom said "you have to meet my brother" :o) well, long story short- i fell in love with her brother and now that adorable little boy is my nephew.. LOVE HIM!! he still slips and calls me Ms. Karen-- it's especially funny at family dinner... the whole spectum is tough, no matter how mild the case, it's rough-- i think the hardest part is that these children "look" perfectly fine, so it's difficult for people to see and understand how truly affected their lives are (and the families' lives). You can talk autism to me all day long-- I am honestly in the perfect line of work! I am so very lucky to be doing something that I enjoy so much and has so much reward that comes with it! If you ever need strategies/ideas, please don't hesitate to ask!!!!!!

off to sleep! have to wake up and clean for tomorrow's visitors :o)

hope you're doing well and this crazy holiday season is keeping you busy and not focused on TTC!!!!!
