Quick Chart Question!! I Need An Expert Please!


Does it look like I actually ovulated? FF has me at 14 DPO [I haven't tested and I don't feel like AF is coming. My journal is in my sig if you want to follow me (:]

The links to my chart and journal are in my signature.

FF has taken away my crosshairs a couple of times but has always put them back at CD 11. This is my first month charting. I also have had really irregular cycles in the past. The last one was 84 days but I am taking Vitex and it seems to work! I don't regularly do OPK's but I did one on CD 15 on a whim that was ALMOST positive. I took another later that night that was very negative. I had some cramping on that day as well and a HUGE temp dip. But when I try to change CD 15 to my O date, you can't see the biphasic pattern as clearly.

I think FF is right, but since I don't track any other signs of O [mainly because I didn't think I would be ovulating so early given my past] they won't give me solid crosshairs.

Sorry for the ramble. Just wanted to give the main information. So, do you think FF is right and I am REALLY 14 DPO?

It's hard to tell because you don't have temps from the beginning of the month, and your temps are very unsteady. Do you take your temp at the same time every morning, before getting out of bed, talking, etc.? I am leaning toward yes, but it's hard to say for sure at this point. If you are being consistent with taking them, then I would lean toward no -- especially if they keep dropping so low.

I heard that it is unnecessary to temp while AF is here. Plus, I temp vaginally.

Yeah, I take it at the exact same time every morning. I always get at least 3 hours of sleep.

It is helpful to temp during AF just to see where your normal body temps are normally, especially if you have not ovulated before. Saying that, I don't think you ovulated when FF said you did - perhaps later, or not at all yet.

Aww, don't take my word for it - it could just be that you have lower post ovulation temps than some people! Keep temping for a few days and see what happens.

I would temp during af. It gives you more temps to go by and to better see what your normal is. FF may be right. I would take a test just in case. If it is neg, then I am very sorry to say, but I don't think you have ovulated yet.

Is it because of my temps being up and down? I didn't think it was that much of a fluctuation. The weather here has been crazy. We literally had an ice storm/ blizzard one night and the next day it was 60°. Now its 15° 3 days later. We have a big sliding door in our bedroom. But I always wear the same amount of clothes and try to keep the heat at the same temp.

I just think its weird because I've got symptoms that are normal for me before AF and then I have a few that aren't. I guess we will see. I've also done the "charts that look like yours" part on FF and I've seen ones that look like mine ether rocky temps, dotted lines with nothing else other than temps and they had regular LPs.

I'm sorry if I seem hard headed and like I won't take no for an answer. I was just really hopeful. I really am open to what everyone has to say. I'm sure you know what its like to hear something you didn't want to hear, even if you had a feeling anyways that the answer wasn't great. I appreciate you ladies and your responses. I used to be part of a forum where I never got responses other than a "GL!"

I'm curious to see if anyone else wants to add anything. I'm new to charting [did it for a short time as a teen as BC---successfully] and I don't know all the ins and outs just yet. Just pretty much the basics. I'm still taking my Vitex and FA as a precaution. It can't hurt either way this goes. Keep your fingers crossed for me ladies! Thanks.

I live in Missouri and our weather has been pretty insane too.
Monday- 70's
Tuesday- tornado watch
Wednesday- snow

Your temps seem a little jumpy to me I guess just based on my own chart. But I haven't ovulated yet. I don't know if you will be able to see an old chart below the current one that shows after o.
