BBT question

I recently starting charting my temps again after not having done so since TTC DD (now 3 1/2). I am a little bit passed the bit of my cycle where I would have expected to O and I never got and abrupt temp switch. Instead my temp has been steadily rising bit by bit. What on earth could that mean? My temps never did that before even when I didn't O (which happens a lit for me).
I only had the steady rise when I was pregnant with DD. That is not it though because I had AF and haven't DTD since. Also BFN around the time of AF because it was a few days late.
My CM has been close to non-existent so it isn't giving me to many clues either.

Re: BBT question

Could it be that you ovulated later than you thought?

Re: BBT question

Some women have a slow rise pattern of BBT after they ovulate. Do you have the book TCOYF? She has a section in there about it...if you don't have the book I can look it up for you

I can't find my TCYF. I hadn't looked at it in 4 years. I guess I need to buy another one. I did find an article on the slow rise pattern on FF. Thanks for pointing that out. I guess after you have a child your cycles don't come back the same as they were before. I guess it makes sense but I found it confusing.
