Good Morning!

Well it's CD12 today CM getting a little better, could be approaching say in 2 days, pretty much on target. Only problem is I measured yesterday at 98.12 and today at 89.92... I thought it was a mistake, but unfortunately it wasn't one I caught right away so I could retempt. DH still sleeping, too dark to read digital temp reading but BT holds onto the last temperature reading. When I read it in the bathroom right after, I thought it said 97.92... What to do. I tried to chart it on FF but I got a message that I was set to measure in F not C, but if I wanted to change the settings I could. I don't want to change FF settings to C unless I can do it for just one day. Anyway, FF wouldn't chart the temp as it said it couldn't be right. AWESOME! :) Not sure how to proceed... Any suggestions?

First, you are not a nuisance! I love helping and chatting all I can. This board is slow on the weekends, and some weeks we don't get

Thanks guys. I figured it was just a slow day. That and I forget that some could be posting Pacific time, while I am Central time. Also, church day, and I don't go but anyways. I do post a lot thought maybe too much.

Well, I have a digital BBT, it records the last record, so I can turn it on later and it will still show up. I am not sure why it registered too low except maybe I was thinking when temping (I temp vaginally b/c my mouth is open a good portion of the night) that I wonder if there is such thing as having it too far in (sorry TMI) I probably had it further out than usual. Anyway, I decided to temp again at 9am which is about a half hour after being awake (went back to sleep after the first temp). At that time I registered 99.04. I read somewhere that you could override or change FF under "data" couldn't figure out how. Somewhere it said for every half hour later you temp take off .10 so that would put me at about 98.66. I tried putting that down and FF decided I was 3DPO, the same happened when I just entered 99.04. My CM is slightly creamy so I think I still haven't O'd. I decided to just not record a temp for today because that makes sense to me. It would be nice to know though if my temp went down enough to have it considered an O. In some ways it was nice to see a coverline and DPO but I don't want to register it if that isn't right that would defeat the purpose. Anyway, thanks for the input ladies. Clearly this first month charting can be a bit nutty...
