Chart help please?

I'm hoping experienced charters might be able to help me please?
This is my second month of properly temping (have temped on and off before), I generally ovulate late cd 19/20 and have a short luteal phase of around 11 days. So here I am at 13dpo, bfn's and no af.
My temp times have been inconsistent with a 17month old waking in the night and I'm also not the best sleeper.
I suspect af is on her way. Anyone got any advice?
You can take a look at my chart:

It looks like a perfect chart with signs and BD'ing and temp shifts but with a negative test at 13dpo I'd say not a successful month. A couple of things - charting your mucous all month gives you a great indicator of where you're at regardless of whether you're sleeping or not. Just make a note of how you feel - no need to touch or stretch mucous! Wet, slippery, dry, creamy, that kind of indicator. Ovulating on day 19 with an 11 day LP is fine but you may ovulate earlier if still BF with a babe who doesn't sleep solidly.

What kind of test did you take? If neg on a FRER then maybe your luteal phase is just a few days longer this month. But I'd test with a FRER just to confirm...

I tested yesterday with a FRER and it appeared to show an evap line? And then this morning with an IC.
I'm so confused! I'm also a little scared as I had an ectopic in 2010 and lost my left tube and my bfp with dd came up at 9dpo.. Arghhhh, isn't ttc so difficult!!

Hrmm, evap lines would be pretty rare with a FRER. I'd test again. When I had my chemical some of my ICs still had no line even though the one on the FRER was obvious.
