Could someone please take a look at my chart for me?

When I put my temp into FF yesterday it called O for 3 days prior (CD17), which I was expecting. However when I put this mornings temp in it has pushed O back to CD15, which already puts me at 6DPO.

Would this be correct?  I'm confused!! LOL!!

Hi Gals! I haven't been in here for a while as we're not TTC this month - well not officially so just been staking to TTC#2 thread - whole bunch of BFPs over there this month - not me though - LOL.

Anyway - not sure what's going on with my chart - I started the herbs about 4 weeks ago - had some breakthrough bleeding this cycle which freaked me out but Chinese Doc thinks is due to herbs.

Anyone fancy a stalk - go right ahead!

How is everyone?

And I see we have a BFP! Congratulations Clare!!!!!

And good luck to all those starting IVF - seems a bit has happened since I was last in!!!

Hi Allie! I think FF is saying that because you had 3 temps above the coverline and FF then changes O to be according to when that happens - I had the same thing happen to me this month, first it said day 12 then changed it to day 14 - so now it looks like you O on day 15 - hope that helps!

Thanks CheriDeMomie!

Yes it has been one confusing cycle for me!  Originally FF started to predict O at CD10 which spun me out, but then it changed it's mind the following day.  Then I thought I was going to O on CD15 because of the +OPK (had a dark OPK on CD14, but it got even stronger on CD15 in the morning), but then FF said it was CD17, but then changed it to CD15 two days later!  Confused much?!  LOL!!  Oh well, all I can say is it keeps me entertained!  I love waking up to get my temp to see what on earth it is going to say/do next!

Oh and to top it off I was just telling the girls in my TTC group that I did a PG test this morning at 8DPO (which I know is too early), got a second line at 8-10 minutes, but then it vanished about 5 minutes after that!

It has been one crazy cycle, but I don't mind!!  Definitely keeps me entertained!  I run my own business from home so something has to!

No worries hon! It's so quiet in here, maybe you and I will have to ramp it up !!

Massive temp spike for me today - would be just my luck to get UTD 25 days before we fly to Europe !!

That's crazy about the test being positive then turning to negative - what brand was it ?? How confusing !!

Haha!  We'll have to host a Chartin' Party! Tounge1.gif LOL!!

Yeah it was an IC test.  I think it was definitely a dud!  I checked it again later in the day and it had gone all multicoloured!!  Defs something wrong with it!  I couldn't test again this morning because I woke up at 6am busting to go to the loo and forgot all about it! ddoh.gif

Yay for a temp spike.... I had a massive one too!  Went from 36.6 yesterday to 36.9 today! Although I thought maybe daylight savings had something to do with it.  Technically in yesterdays time I tested at 8:20 (this morning it was 7:20) when normally I test at 7:30 each day so I thought that might have been why?  Either way even if the later time put it up 1/2 to 1 degree it was still a big jump!

Europe sounds exciting!  My parents are going over there in a couple of weeks.  I'd love to be going with them!!

Hahaha - chartin party! That's cute!!

Oh - yeah - i forgot - Daylight Savings - that's prob why I had a temp spike too - I wonder if we should change it to an hour earlier on FF and then see what it says for the temp rise??

I'm not even bother to test - I want AF to come so I can eat and drink in Paris and Barcelona whatever I want ... on the other hand a baby would be DIVINE !!!! x

I checked FF this morning in the FAQs and it said not to adjust the temp for daylight savings, because it should only make a difference for the one day.  It said that it may effect the first day slightly, but if you think your temp is really out to just discard it for that day (depending on what the next day says).  I thought it would have said to adjust it somehow!

A big congrats to Mandy  biggrin.gif  wink.gif

Fingers crossed for both you girls !

AFM- 11 DPO atm, not really expecting anything etc... If AF doesn't show i won't test till i am quite late, given my history!

Have an appointment with the fertility clinic on the 24th of April, so just focusing on that.


#61 CheriDeMomie

Posted 02 April 2012 - 07:15 AM

Another high temp for me this morning! I'm expecting AF tomorrow so hoping i'll see some spotting today - looking for that temp drop so maybe she will be here in a couple of days ...

Well after getting a faint positive on a PG test yesterday morning I got a negative this morning!

On a plus though, after I put this mornings temp into FF it said it was predicting a possible triphasic for CD23!

FX!

Hi everyone,

I'm afraid I've not gone through PP, so this is just a general post - sadly, I'm going to be joining the charting group again. We m/c over the weekend, just before six weeks.

DP and I are just chilling out at the moment. I've had an u/s already to make sure everything is clear - which it is - and my doctor is being lovely and pushing through some blood tests for me - as this is our second m/c in four months, she's starting to check out whether there are any underlying reasons for us.

I'll come in with personals when I'm feeling more with it. Congrats to the BFPs, and hugs to everyone,
Clare

Congrats Mandy on your BFP.gif
Big  bbighug.gif Clare, take care.
AFM had our first FS appointment last Thursday, FS has put DH on Menevit for his low motility and booked me in for a Lap/tube flush and check the lining in May, basically the works!!
Just happy to be to be doing something proactive and having a plan for the next few months.
Still lurking here as I'm still charting (habit) and stalking all you girls. Not ready to head over to the AC threads until we are actually doing a cycle.
