What CD do you ovulate??

I'm not TTC but I have had my IUD taken out and I have started to track my cycle as a form of BC. This is my first cycle temping and so far I can't tell a thing from my temps. I am on CD13 and am having really bad cramps, I am wondering if I am Oing. My little calender is guessing I will O on CD16. My last cycle(the first since my IUD was removed) lasted 29 days. I am usually pretty regular. Do you think I could be??
Temps:
CD7-96.8
CD8-97.2
CD9-97.7
CD10-96.8
CD11-97.2
CD12-97.3
CD13-97.5

What CD do you mamas O?

You won't know you O'd by temps till after you o'd. As progesterone increases it increases you body temp. So by the time you had your shift you have already o'd. What is your cm like? Have you checked your cp? That would tell you more too. Have you taken the FF course?

Cm - cervical mucous. CP - cervical position. When you ovulate you have EWCM which is egg white mucous. TMI - imagine snot. Your CP will be high open and soft at O. FF is fertility friend. They have tons of good info over there and you can learn about all these terms and how to observe them. Also TCOYF (taking charge of your fertility) is an awesome book.

Re: What CD do you ovulate??

I use to O pretty consistently pre DS b/t CD 14 and 16. I've only had one post partum period since, but it looks like now my O is closer to CD 20. It really can vary from month to month, as the most unpredictable part of your cycle is pre-O. I second the recommendation for Taking Charge of Your Fertility. It's really good.
