Hi ladies,

I am impatient and want answers TODAY haha so I wanted your opinions:

Does my chart still look like I O'ed Friday?? (that was the day my potential "O pains" had stopped).

My temp spiked up on Saturday but hasn't been on the rise since.  It's  been two days now that I've had lower temps (but still higher than most of the past week's temps)

My chart is in my sig.  
Do you think it's still possible that I O'ed despite the non-rising temps?

Thanks a billion for your feedback! original.gif

without rising temps I would generally say no, but with PCOS, temps are often all over the place. I thought that CP was the golden standard. Have you checked your CP again? Such an odd thing to recommend to a stranger wink.gif

I would say you have o'd over the weekend due to CP being low and firm- if you are sure about that, I'd say you did. I hope you get a BFP this round- looks like you BDd enough dev (6).gif

as long as the temp stays up I am inclined to say you did. The only strange thing is the positive OPK seems to be after the temp rise, when usually the OPK is meant to suggest imminent ovulation. Unfortunately you may have to wait a few days to get a better perspective of what happened.

Fingers crossed for you.

I got the pos OPK sat morning and it was gone by noon. I did not test Friday afternoon or night though, so I keep wondering if it would've been positive then.  sad.gif  I really hope my body got somewhere this month...

Like you said PP, time will tell ( mad.gif ! Hehe)

Sorry, but I don't think you have O'd. That's just based on temps, you haven't really had a temp rise yet.
Looks like maybe today (?) if you have a rise tomorrow.

I'd say you may have Od Sunday or possibly even today some time.

roll2.gif  too cute ladies.  I'd like to think that I know when I ...... y'know haha wink.gif

So my untrained eyes are seeing that OVULATION wink.gif took place - I believe I see a corpus luteum and my endometrium is 9.5mm thick.  

Just need to wait to hear what the gynae thinks.  I hate waiting for phonecalls!!

I hope my temp tomorrow morning will be more teling too.

Thank you for all of your feedback and I wish you all the best on your journeys.  
I'll update this again once I have found out what has happened in my body in case there is someone in the future who stumbles across this and completely relates, gets to the end and says "damn! I want to know what happened!"  I've got your back future lady person out there! original.gif

Update: Gynae suspects that I ovulated, given her observations of the US results (yay!) original.gif

As PP said, temps are also staying up - so w000t my first ovulation in... forever! hah original.gif

Progesterone was 74.2 at 7DPO, so I do indeedy play the waiting game (hate this!)

So, here I am in a month's time asking the same thing: Do you think I ovulated? / What are people's opinions about my chart?

To give you a bit more detail:
CD14-19 sharp right pelvic pain
CD20, and CD21 temps were taken after only have 2 and 4 hours sleep, respectively.
CD22 may have been impacted by alcohol (I didn't think I drank too much.. but there's still that possibility)

Not sure what my pain was and why it went away :/

Thanks ladies, your opinions go a long way with me original.gif
And Merry Christmas to you all x o  bbighug.gif

As you know, I'm no expert, but I just wanted to say that I REALLY hope you did in fact O, and that it is a spectacular little egg! Also, Merry Christmas, and thanks for being there/here for me!
If I had to guess, I'd say you did O, on Wed. Not sure about the temps below the coverline though...see,  no expert!

Okay so update: last month's clomid round did not work.  AF came on her own.  This cycle is all my body's doing.

I think I've ovulated on my own this time though!  The day before O I had excruciating pelvic pains (I'm so over those by now, blargh!) which disappeared the next day, then wallah 4 days of elevated temps!

I'm pretty confident that I did, but again, I love hearing other people's feedback as to what they think about my chart.

Thanks everyone!  Hope you're all travelling well and will see your BFPs this month biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
