Help please! Did I O?

I am looking for some charting expertise!
There is a link to my chart in my sig - I am thinking I O'd yesterday but no real temp rise today. Any words of wisdom?
My cycles are between 34 and 41 days, so I O on a different day every month. This is only my third month charting, but it's usually been easier than this.
I was really hoping to see a temp rise this morning, but nothing!

The +opk on the 27th has thrown me off entirely! Was it a true +?
If you had O'D yesterday, you really should have had another good temp rise this morning.
What are your normal post O temps like?

I don't think you have O'd yet. Your body can gear up and fail for some reason (stress, illness, etc) and when that happens, you often O about a week later. Keeping doing OPKs.
I'm a late O-er too so I feel your pain.

Thanks girls. It was a true positive as I use clearblue digital, so there's no room for problems with interpretation!
I will keep doing OPK's.
I was excited as I thought it was an early O. Lots of watery CM this morning.
My temp rises are easily observable, usually, particularly since I have started using a different mix of post ovulation Chinese herbs.
Thanks again girls!

Your chart is similar to mine this month. Keep using the OPKs until you get a definite temp shift because tht is what confirms O. Im hoping my temp will rise now.

Thanks Pippa - your chart is really similar to mine. Negative OPK today, so I'll just keep at it!

AllyK81 the +ve OPK has thrown me as well! I always used the digital ones as well and you're right - no room for error! But your temps don't seen to show O has happened yet ... I notice your temp has dropped a little this morning again ... are you temping in the same way each time ?
My only other thought is (and this is a long shot!) is would it be possible the herbs have led to a false +ve on the OPK?
Waiting to O can be v. frustrating - hope it happens soon

Hi Ali_Cat - I took the changed up herbs last month with no odd problems, so I don't know.
My temping is pretty accurate - I am just SO frustrated that this cycle is so screwy. I still haven't O'd although I had a big dip this morning so I am hoping that it's not far away.
Poor DH feels like a piece of meat with all the BD!
