need chart help, and temping questions *added chart* dooohhhh!

Allright so here it is. I'm not sure if I've O'd yet or not. My chart is making me mad This morning I woke up an hour before my normal temp time, my temp then was 97.3 ( if I insert this temp then my ovulation day and coverline will go away) then an hour later when I normally wake up I took my temp again 97.2 (wth?) so then I decided to take it vaginally and it was 97.6. Sounds much better, so I entered the 97.6 on my chart and ovulation stays. But is this accurate? Have I really even O'd? Oh and btw this is almost exactly the same thing with the other 97.6 temp on my chart that is also contributing to my O being on there. Ergggghhh if I took away both 97.6 temps then I def haven't O'd. Got any advice for me? Tips? Am I freaking insane?

I think you have to fix the link. I see my chart, not yours

Re: need chart help, and temping questions *added chart* dooohhhh!

Do you do opk"s? Did you feel pos o at a certain time of the day? I asking to see if the pm bd would be enough if you did o that day. You don't get much cm, huh? That temp from this morn would be adjusted to 97.52, but it's still above coverline so not a huge biggie. I agree, try to be as accurate w/ tom temp as possible. Looks good though. So far I think the o day is correct

I didn't do any opk's I normally end up wasting so much money on them because I O so late in my cycle that I never know what's up. And normally I get at least 3 days of ewcm before O but this month has been sooo scant. I think that's part of my confusion.
Thanks so much for adjusting that temp for me! that helps

Hi There:
I think you're fine to enter either the 97.3 or 97.2 temp onto your chart to be honest with you. (I've been charting 9 years and one degree will not make or break it). However the vaginal temp can't be used since you either have to use all vaginal temps for a cycle or all oral temps for a cycle, but no mix and match. So I would correct that.
Have you read Taking Charge of Your Fertility? If not I'd highly recommend it.

Looking at your chart just based on Cm to me it looks like you did ovulate on cycle day 24 regardless of what temp you enter over the last few days to be honest.

In the future if you can do it I would recommend using ovusoft for charting verses FF. FF is not near as accurate and when I have used them side by side FF has let me down each time. Ovusoft is $40 but you own it outright and it can be customized wonderfully to suit you.

Also just in case you are interested the last few cycles I used super cheap OPK's I picked up from babywishes.org. My last 3 cycles I opted not to temp since dh and I had decided that we were done ttc. But I did still use OPK's and my Fertility monitor.

Oh one more thing. Are you currently nursing? If so even when you ovulate it might delay your getting your +. It took me 12 cycles and I am still nursing my ds.
I believe their is a book called Natural Child spacing that was a huge help for me.

Another non vaxing mom here also!

Good luck to you.
