So my LMP was Jan 16.....my temps are taken immediately upon waking within 30 min of each other. My chart clearly shows a ovulation dip on cd14 and then cd15 it spikes up but not too high and then it drops a little the next day a little more the next day and spikes up to my highest temp which is 96.93 for the last two days in a row. The only thing different is I had to take these two temps a hr earlier then normal. Bc I had to pee so bad and can't seem to hold it the last two days so I quickly take my temp and scamper to the restroom. But they are up temps....just not as up as I have seen other charts. Secondly my opk didn't register a LH surge till cd 15 in the evening and cd16. But my cm and cervical position and temps all say cd14-15. I'm so confused and even worse I haven't got my red lines on FF. So I don't know how many DPO to consider myself....and I wanted to see how early I can get a BFP.
This is my first time TTC using these methods. And I'm confused. I have a 7 yr old who was a suprise! Someone please help me
Thank you!! I have been reading up on charting. I'm just trying to get a better understanding of it.
As for why I am doing it. I don't think an explanation is needed but if u must know in a previous relationship in 2007 I tried with my ex for nearly a year with no o calculators, no charting, no tempibg .... And I did not get pregnant. This could be attributed to the fact that I had ovarian cysts in 2006 when my son was a yr. They were terrible and landed me in the hospital. They never diagnoses pcos bc they have not returned and once they were gone I never had a problem and at my preconception appintment my Dr. Said everything looks normal but advised me to opk and bbt .... So just in case I have problems conceiving within this next year we have a starting point. For other fertility options. And so she can see what's going on. In fact a lot of drs advise bbt at least .... And I don't make a chore out of making a baby. We have sex when we want to and, we might throw in some extra around an ovulation day if I could determine it. Because that's what DH and I want...a baby

I was just curious. I see so many women on here who go crazy with temping and charting and testing and all that without ever just trying unprotected sex first. Without even speaking with their doctor or anything. I just think its strange and puts more pressure and strain on a relationship than there needs to be unless there is a reason to take those extra steps, which there obviously is in your case.
