Which is my PEAK DAY? Help!
19

Hi!

I *think* yesterday was my peak day but I really could use some help:

Yesterday was Day 16 and the only day of the month I have had any stretchy CM.

My temp was its lowest of all the days as well (96.9). My temp has been between 97.5-97.8

My cervix was high, soft and open.

Early evening the OPK looked positive, or almost positive - first sign of LH surge of the month. We BD'd late last night and the day before too.

I am assuming this was my peak day.

HERE IS MY QUESTION/CONFUSION:


This morning, the OPK was a VERY STRONG positive, however my cervix was firm and closed and my CM was scant, bordering on dry. Just a little skim milk-type CM. My temp jumped up as well this morning to what appears to be my coverline (97.8)

Am I ovulating today???

Do I need to BD today??

I don't have any pre-seed and can't find any in my town, so I wonder if it is even worth it??

HELP!!!

BD every other day should cover it.

If you can swing it, tonight wouldn't be a terrible idea. (If you're like me and DH, however, three days in a row gets a little challenging.)

Thanks ladies! OK 3 days in a row of BD-ing and I'm ready for a break. HOWEVER, this morning the OPK was still positive. I can see a definitely phasing in and phasing out of the OPK. I am phasing out now but still positive. Temp was 98.0 this morning, the highest so far.

WDYT???? Do I need to BD again tonight??

Well from yesterday to today you only went up .2 degrees, but you had that big dip on CD16 so I'm going to give my best guesstimate of CD17 is when you o'd.

Thanks Susan!
I'm gonna see if I can BD just once more tonight if DH will go for it LOL

I see my GYN tomorrow for my annual so I can def. go over the chart with her and get some answers. I am hopeful and excited because this is the first cycle where I've consistently charted and am now certain of my fertile time and believe I timed my BD correctly. :)

Charting is very empowering.

Hi!

I was able to get a 4th day in a row BD out of DH and was so happy about that!!

So I had my Dr's appt today and she said that it does look like I O'd from my chart. The big dip was the marker for her, as well as the OPKs jiving with that time.

So now I have to WAIT 2 weeks. UGH!

She said she wants me to come in if I'm not PG by end of the summer. I hope i am before then!

She said not to worry though, because the patients in her office have good luck and get PG quickly, and that she will snicker if she sees me in 3 weeks. :)

Another thing she said is to not get too freaked out by temps not jiving because they can sometimes be confusing and not accurate, and that the CM, OPKs are good too.

Fingers crossed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
