Please could some of you charting experts take a look at my chart and let me know what you think.
Everything was going nicely, I had firm red crosshairs for ovulation on CD13 which made me 12dpo yesterday.
Due to circumstances meaning we couldnt anywhere near enough this month im totally not expecting to be pregnant but I was at least happy thinking that id finally got to grips with the whole charting game!
I started spotting on 11dpo and again on 12dpo and was expecting on saturday but then today I had a low temp below coverline (my first thought was obviously had arrived early and when I went to the loo there was spotting and again I thought itll arrive full flow later) but when I entered it into FF its changed my ovulation day to CD18!!
Just wondered if anyone knew why it would do that and if its always 100% correct?
Its really got me worried now cause if it does turn into my period today or tomorrow then that puts my luteal phase at either 8 or 9 days when i thought i had a nice 13/14 day one!
Another bizarre thing is that for the last few months ive had severe cramps and sore boobs from about the week leading upto my period and this month i havent had anything yet, but I started following weight watchers on CD1 and have managed to lose 7lb so far so thought that the healthier eating had maybe reduced my PMT as id read that it does that ??
Any advice that anyone has would be great right now
hey hun, try not to worry, you could have implantation spotting which can happen around 7-12 DPO and sometimes indicated by a temp dip too which could be why FF has decided you O'ed at CD18
If your temp goes up again tomorrow then thats a great sign
Fingers crossed for you xx
I am so NOT an expert but I do enjoy looking at charts. FF looks for a temp shift to make a biphasic pattern. She's a fickle program sometimes and changes her mind. I think she looks for 3 temp rises before she decides where ov day was. It looks to me like you O'd on cd 13. I think she got confused because your post ov temps are so up and down. Its not 100% accurate and because she has changed your crosshairs to a dotted line, it shows she is a little confused. Your O signs no longer match up ie your cm was watery before what she thought was your temp shift. And if I'm wrong and FF is right, and it turns out that your luteal phase is short, its an easy fix. I've also read that a change in diet (for the better as yours is) can reduce PMT. Great work on losing weight. Good luck!
Well panic over, has arrived after all and now FF has gone back to CD13 although with dotted lines this time. Obviously a little gutted that shes shown her ugly face once again but also relieved that at least my luteal phase looks like it is ok after all
I'm sorry she got you, but at least you now have a nice normal looking chart with nothing wrong and the clear reason you didnt get a BFP is because you didnt bd at the right times. So that clearly means that next month when you bd at the right times, you'll get your BFP! That makes perfect sense! Good luck this cycle hun, to you.
