Can anyone help me figure this out? This is my first full cycle charting and Im not sure what I am supposed to make of my chard. On cycle day 26 my temp drops pas cover but I am only at 4DPO, and today it just spiked really high. I was under the impression that when your temp drops after O that you are sure to get AF. At 4DPO I don't think this is the case. Can anyone help? I tired to attach my chart as a pic. I hope it works.

Your fine... You can have surges of estrogen even after you O which gives you a temp dip... One temp dip does not mean anything.... If you temp stayed low you would wonder if you had actually Oed or if Af was about to arrive. Not sure how much you are breastfeeding but you can have short LP ( the time between o and Af) some times as short as 4 days but for you it does not look like Af just a drop in temp and we may see one or two more too before Af actually arrives. It is good to see one around 7-10 dpo cause it can be an implantation dip. No need to worry unless you temp stays low. Hope you see a BFP in about 10 days:)

I'd keep an eye on your chart.

Here's today's chart. Do you think I O'd at all?

There's a way to put a link to your ff chart, I can't remember how to do it-may be easier than how you're posting...and we can stalk your chart easier!! Somewhere there's a "sharing" tab on FF that will give you the info.

I'd say if today's temp is as high or higher than Saturday's, I'd say maybe you O'd Friday. Give it another day or two to see what those temps do. I have terrible luck with FF giving me false O dates. I'm also not familiar with *C for temping, but even so, your coverline should be higher than it is so your CD 23, 24, 25 temps would probably be below the CL...but again I'm looking at it through my only-temping-in-*F-eyes.

What are your cycles usually like length wise?

Well before I had LO my cycles were around 28-30 days. And I had just gotten my first PPAF last month, So it`s not regular. My temp spiked quite high today but I was also up lots last night with LO so that might be why. Im not sure what to think about the O date since this is my first real cycle charting....I gues we`ll see.....
