Confused - 3DPO already???

I am confused - I had EWCM Fri, Sat and Sun, but when I plugged in my temp this morning to FF it said I O'ed on Fri!!! I am trying to not DTD around O time, but I thought you Oed after you see EWCM not on the first day??? Would I have had 3 days of EWCM even after I had Oed and yesterday was the heaviest? I thought I would see EWCM and O a day or two later?? Maybe I am not so good at this cycle tracking??? Can anyone help me - so when I see EWCM am I Oing or will I O a few days later??? I had my largest temp jump today, so I do not know if I Oed on Fri or if I even Oed at all. Last cycles my temp went up around CD 16 but I did not really O till CD 25 when it really jumped and FF never moved my O date - Oh well guess I will just wait 10 days and test or see what my temp does in the next few days. I just need another lesson on how to tell when I am Oing! Most months I have had AF with Bfing (baby nursing a lot too) I O late around CD 24 - 35!!! Oh well - so confussing!!!

Thanks for any help!!! Can you tell you are going to O before it happens or do you just know after you see your temp jump??

Thanks,
Lindsay

HI,


I am just getting back into the swing of charting so I am not sure how much I can help. By looking at your chart it only gave you tentitive crosshairs, so after a few more days temping it may alter it again.


Was anything different this morning when you took your temp? We you nursing shortly before or something? That would raise your temps up some...


Sorry I am not too much help. I usually went with opk's when I was charting. The rest just went along with it. Maybe getting some cheap opk's from the net would help you pinpoint actual O date.

I think you can only see that you O'd for sure when you see the sustained temp rise......before that I don't think your temps would be elevated.......I would get yourself some OPK's to help interpret things. I didn't have mine in time this cycle, or at least I don't think so, and it is DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!

Will watch your chart this week and see if I can give you any more insight onto what is going on with you. Hopefully I can do the same with mine LOL! Ahhhhhh.....

Usually O will come on the last day of fertile CM. Doesn't look like you've O'd yet. Looks like you're gearing up to O.

There are a few things you can look for that might indicate that you will be ovulating soon. EWCM, low temps, an estrogen surge (seen using a saliva scope), a positive OPK, cramps, ovarian pains, increased sex drive, open cervix...

Looks like you O'd on cd 25 last cycle. You might want to go in and manually correct that.

I am not sure how to change my O date on my chart last cycle, but yes I did O much later than FF said I did. This time around FF gave me cross hairs and then took them away after a day - I do not think I have Oed yet. Lots of EWCM, nipples sore, CP HSO, but my ovaries feel swollen and sore, so I think my body is trying to O, but just can't get there yet. The EWCM had gone now and nipple are not as tender today so who knows maybe I Oed yesterday??? Time will tell!

Thanks for the reply!
