maybe your vayjayjay is just hot hot hot   LOL

seriously though, you do get warmer temps when vag temping than with oral temps

FF has called O for me on day 15 - pity we hadn't BD since day 11 due to being sick   rolleyes.gif    So, this month is out I think.  Roll on next month.

I need a few cycles of giving it a really good go before I call it quits.  Just have to get DH to step up - might have to wait till after exams.

Hi Ladies

For any of you ladies that temp vaginally after originally temping orally did you notice a big difference in your temps? Mine was fairly low last month and only got over 36.25 twice before ovulation but vaginally this month I'm above 36.10 everyday.  Currently CD4 and hoping my temps will be a lot steadier this month as last month is was all over the place.


I definitely did.

Have a look at my chart overlay (in my link), I've got 3 months in my overlay, the blue one is this month (the only month I've charted vaginally). My temps this month are steadily much higher.

That's either because I'm temping vaginally, or it might be because of acupuncture.

roll2.gif FX for the test results.

Nadia - my naturopath says you don't need to do a HPT if you have 20 DPO of temps above your coverline because it can only mean one thing..... You're almost there!! FX

AFM - when do you think I O'd?  My big temp dip was CD13 (but zero CM), then CD15 I had a moist feeling but only saw EWCM with a BM, but no CM at any other time or when I went exploring.  Then CD16 was a dry feeling down there and again only saw EWCM with a BM, but no CM could be found at any other time. Don't hold out any hope for this cycle since CM went AWOL but will just have to wait and see what happens.

P.s. Sunshiney, I would also say CD16 at this point.. Fingers crossed your temp rises continue!!

Posted 10 May 2012 - 04:27 AM

I must of been seeing things when I saw that line last night I got a negative this morning oh well just back to waiting again I will test again in a couple of days or maybe its because i tested at 4am after 3hrs of sleep

#138 Sunshiney

Posted 10 May 2012 - 10:33 AM

What was your temp this morning Nadia? It if was still above your coverline, perhaps your urine wasn't concentrated enough for the PG hormones to show up when you tested?  FX   hheart.gif

Mel and BIAP - yes, I agree with CD16.  I've been tempting since Feb 2011 and my coverline is always 36.3 so I always know O has occurred as soon as I see a temp above that.  But it's weird that my temp dip happened a few days before O and that I didn't have any CM.... and even weirder, but most exciting - for the first time ever I wasn't crippled with endo pain!!  ddance.gif  I don't want to say 100% yet that the endo diet my naturopath put me on has worked... but I think it might have and I'm soooo excited to not be in pain for once!

Not much happening with me. 3DPO. Nothing exciting. I'm really eager to see when AF comes this cycle, as I'm hoping for a longer LP, seeing as though O came 1 day earlier this month.

#146 *Katey*

njs4dks - Awww, it doesn't always mean there's something wrong with you. A chemical pregnancy is essentially a very early miscarriage. And miscarriages are common. 25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage.

I've had 2 suspected chemical pregnancies since February, and my obgyn said unless it is happening consistantly, over and over again, it's nothing to worry about, and that it's common.

She said most people who have chemical pregnancies don't even know they're pregnant, as most people aren't testing this early. Their AF eventually comes, and they just think their AF was just a bit late. So it's probably even more comman than is recognised in official numbers.

As devestating as it is (trust me, I know), it doesn't mean there is something wrong with you. It's just nature's way of sorting things out.

Big hugs, and just remember, that chem preg is just nature's way of making sure you are making way for your perfect little bubba sometime soon. Nature didn't want you to have anything less than perfect  bbighug.gif

Edit - I'm such an idiot, I've just realised you've had 4 chemical pregnanies, I'm so sorry sad.gif

Sorry for the me post yesterday, I've been MIA because my back has screwed out (again), it's too painful to sit at the computer, and I can only really stalk from my phone. Too difficult to post!

Nadia - I'm so sorry. I can't even imagine how devastating it would be to get that BFP and have it taken away like that sad.gif  bbighug.gif

Sunshiney - Good news that you were pain free this cycle original.gif

Mel - I'm sorry about your cousin. I understand. My brother and SIL are going to TTC after their wedding. She thinks it's going to happen straight away (and she probably will rolleyes.gif ) she's even been counting down to her maternity leave for months. Anyway, their wedding is in 2 weeks, and I'm just dreading that announcement.
When does your DH finish exams?

Was it Womble that had all that info about when the best time to do a SA is? I'm really curious to know if we did it agt the best time - god knows we need it!!

Well, I need another spinal injection, so will probably go back to stalking you all from the couch on my phone. I'll pop in next week and let you know the verdict original.gif

Posted 11 May 2012 - 01:01 PM

So sorry to hear njs4dks. I haven't to my knowledge had a chemical pregnancy but I imagine an emotional rollercoaster doesn't even begin to describe the experience.

Well, I said I was taking a break while going on holidays, but it turns out to be a little addictive to take my BBT every morning (yes, sometimes at night too, just to torture myself), so my thermometer went with me, on the plane to Dubai, Turkey, and Egypt (I managed to keep a pretty consistant 6:30am time most days!), but as a result, my temps are all over the place, (not helped by a cold!) and because I wasn't taking my meds, it looks like an entire waist of a month as FF is now saying I didn't ovulate cry1.gif . I had tentative lines for the CD14, but when I put in this morning's slight rise, it decided to stop all pretences. Now just waiting impatiently for AF to rock up, to start this ride all over again.. yay glare.gif .
