Weird chart

Hi ladies,

I just started temping this cycle, would you care to take a look at my chart and let me know your thoughts? Maybe I'm temping incorrectly? I've been temping as soon as my alarm goes off at 6:30am every morning (even on weekends). However, on CD18 I had to get up at 4:15am, which shows the large drop in temp. There was a couple of times that I put the thermometer in my mouth and fell asleep and when I woke up my mouth was open, so I had to take it again. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you're doing everything you should be. Remember that you're looking for the overall picture of the chart; when you do O, you'll see a clear and sustained temperature shift. I don't see O for you yet, but keep on going.

I totally agree with Kim. Just keep going. It can be complicated and annoying but it also can be so eye opening to what your cycle is like. And how it differs from month to month. Good Luck!

Thanks for your help. You all are so comforting and helpful. It just seems like I'm waiting forever on O, probably stress induced. I noticed this morning that I woke up when my husband came to bed around 4am and I went right back to sleep. I know it said to sleep for 3 hours, so I'm wondering if that could possibly mess up my temp.

OMGoodness, the bleeding witchy ovarian pain showed up at 9:00pm this evening. I think I'm going to have to give it some kind of name. Maybe DP for dancing pain (I walk funny when it's here..every step has to be light to prevent it from bouncing) or TTDP = Tippy Toe Dance Pain. LOL Advil and heating pad here I come. I'm going to go OPK and see if it shows O.

I checked out your chart, I didn't see a clear o pattern but its still possible. Maybe the pain you were having was a cyst? I have had

Hi Mrs. B. Thanks for the tips on temping. I just might try vaginal temping. It won't be left open. LOL

The OPK never showed the dark positive line. Darn! However, according to ff my temps did show O on day 23. I guess we missed it. I’m so sorry you’re having cysts. I hope yours don’t hurt as bad as mine. They didn’t used to hurt and actually the first one we found while we were BD’ing. I thought we ruptured something. My newest pain has been diagnosed as "bleeding cysts" using u/s. The bad thing about O’ing during cysts is that the doc said we could hit the cyst while DB’ing, which could cause contortion of the ovary. YIKES! This cycle the TTDP started 2 days before I O’ed and the pain lessens as time goes on, so I’m thinking that by O day I’ll be able to tolerate BD’ing. The OB said cysts are treated with BC or prego, so BC is out of the question while ttc.

Thanks for your support everyone. You gave me the support I needed when it was needed to keep temping!
