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!!!

Susan, I think I need clarification. From the info she gave and the dip on CD15, I would have put ovulation on CD16, but you said CD17. Have I been getting it wrong all this time??? You did mention the drop being on CD16 instead of CD15 though, so hopefully I am not as confused as I thought!

Whichever it is, I think you got all your bases covered Loves_Me, hopefully you get your bfp this month. :-)

Lol Michelle, I meant dip on CD15 but generally FF gives me CH's on the day of the dip so she might have o'd on CD15.

Lol! You had me confused Susan! So one more question for you. You said that FF gives you CH when your temp dips? From what I had read I thought that a temp dip happened just before ovulation. On a typical month my temp will drop, the next day be at or slightly above my coverline, and the next day (and subsequent days) will be above the coverline. I have always considered the day after my temp drop to be O day. Is that right, or am I off? We usually try to cover all the bases anyway but there have been months where it has been rather hit and miss because of schedules and such.

Sorry to high jack your thread loves_me, although I suppose the info could be helpful to you too. At least I am hoping you will see it that way! Lol!

I honestly don't know Michelle, just know that's what FF does w/ mine 99% of the time.

Interesting. I wonder why it does that with yours, since with most of the ones on FF that I have looked at have put the CH one or even two days after the dip, when there is a dip. Oh well, most of the time the CM is pretty consistent with the BBT so I haven't worried too much about it. Well, except for this month of course!
