So compared to last month (temps all over the board) this month so far is looking nice and even, could be easier to detect O if it stays this way. Hope I am not jinxing myself. Anybody have any input? I like to grasp at straws so throw some this way pls :)

Michele,

What a beautiful chart! When I was looking at it I started thinking that you might want to start OPKs tomorrow were you had such a short cycle and it looked like you might have O'd on cd6 or 9. I had a short cycle last month too.

Thanks for looking! Yeah, I was just answering someone's post about how they had some really short cycles and some really long ones and wondered when they should start using the OPK's and so I researched and found a site that said when to start testing based on shortest cycle in last 6 months. It says for a 21 day cycle to test CD5 it didn't go any earlier than that, mine was only 20 days last month, I should think today is a good day to start... so I am thinking of testing here in an hour ish. Trying not to drink anything or pee..... funny just thinking about it makes me wanna pee.... lol.:smileysurprised: I want to buy that CBEFM but I don't want to waste the money if I don't O, so going to see if I do this month and if I do and don't have a BFP, I think I will buy that monitor.

That is a pretty chart! I'm glad you are already testing with OPK's too. Fingers crossed you can save the money for the monitor and buy diapers instead!

Hmm, when overlaid against last month, my chart is shaping up very similarly, kind of worried that it will end with no O abruptly but still have hope. Seriously, though if that happens, a short cycle again, it will make me wonder. You know my cycle length has been fairly predictable, every couple of years I have an extra long cycle which is usually followed by a short light cycle. I took this last one as a correction, but the last time I had a serious blip in my cycle we were TTC. It really does make me wonder what happens when you TTC. I guess my point is physical. When we don't try there is nothing for the lining to shed, at least very little. I mean he always pulled out (sorry tmi) so it was literally very little to shed. I am thinking when there is more to shed my system freaks out and says hey, we need to clear this mess out sooner rather than later. I don't know. Probably there is no medical reason for it. I sure don't think I am causing that much stress on my body by overthinking it, especially this early in the cycle. I am probably the happiest I have been a very long time. Though I have always been pretty happy, I am probably least stressed right now than any other time.

I still believe that I have a chance, something in the back of my mind says don't give up, trudge forward, it is just a matter of time. Too bad it is so hard to wait for time to pass. Positive BFP vibes, to us all!

It is hard to pass time in the 2 weeks increments we live in. I think you will see a difference in this chart as more time goes by. You are having consistent pre-O temps and that is a good thing.

I do agree, it's weird how cycles can be so
