Christine - that's great that you're almost ready to start!! MArch/April will be here before you know it!!

Alison - So great that the ball is finally rolling with the clinic!!

AFM - I need help!! I decided to chart this month. Last month was confusing because I thought I O'd on CD13, but then I had spotting on day 16. Plus, I'm starting progesterone this month so I thought for my own peace of mind it would be better to pinpoint O. Since its my first month I'm not exactly sure, but I think if my temp stays up tomorrow FF will make O two days ago?? I never had a +opk and I've barely had any cm so it doesn't make sense. I'm supposed to start my progesterone on day 18,but I don't know what the h*ll is going on.This has NEVER happened. I guess I'll keep taking opks to see if anything changes. I took one this morning and it actually seemed lighter than yesterday. It was FMU though, so I'll try again when I get home from work. So frustrating. Anybody know if it's still possible to O with no cm and no +opk? It seems unlikely.

Here is my chart:

Honestly, I don't think you O'd then, though it is possible to not get a +OPK and still O. Are you checking CM internally, or only what you see? Often it hides on your cervix.

Anyway, to me, DS 14 looks like an out-lier. Your temps now are lining up with the others pretty closely, so I don't think you've had a temp rise yet. If you want even more eyes to check it out, visit the Fertility Charting board (http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/Fertility-Charting-Natural/ct-p/iv-pstempchart). Sue is the CL there, and she's great! Tell her I sent you if you stop by! :)

I agree with Liz, Shawn, it looks like that one low temp was out of the ordinary, and all of your temps have been pretty even so far.

Thanks ladies. It's just the strangest thing because I have never had this happen. The latest I've ever O'd is day 16 and that was only one time, otherwise it's always earlier than that. It's so frustrating because I am really trying to stay relaxed, but now that everything is screwed up it's definitely not helping. I only did this to get myself some peace of mind when I start the supplements, but there goes that theory! Guess I'm not starting them until I am 100% sure.

I'm pretty sure today's temp was a total fluke. That's a big jump even for ovulation. I blame DH for closing the bedroom door all the way last night...it got SO.FLIPPING.HOT! Doesn't he know that messes with my chart???

Geez Liz! What was he thinking?!?! LOL!!!

No kidding Alison!! Where is that luck?! I *think* I might be gearing up to O soon, but I dont' want to jinx it! I'm finally getting a little more cm and my opks are getting darker. I won't believe it until I see that smiley face though!! I was supposed to start my progesterone supplements tomorrow!! Good thing I'm tracking otherwise I would have started it too early!!

Oh, and I have a new found respect for people with irregular O's. We usually DTD about once a week (at the most) when not TTC, this EOD stuff is getting to be a but much. I'm sick of BD'ing already, but DH is in heaven!!!

I know just what you mean...I had crazy erratic Os before Lillian and so TTC was a bit more difficult.
