Also thanks for sharing your ages with your first kids makes me feel less ashamed for trying at 23... although maybe yours were accidents idk, but either way it makes me feel a lot better.

It was an oopsie yes but we were freshly married and would only have waited to start ttc maybe after our 1st anniversary.

I had high temos also before my dip.

So I was browsing through ff charts and was looking at pg charts with spotting, in the first 2 pages, I found one with 6 days of scattered spotting, one with 7 consecutive days, and even one with 7 days spotting and a day marked L for bleeding. I was afraid to mark L because I thought it would start a new chart....as dumb as this sounds, I don't remember if ff starts a chart automatically or not, lol! I thought it did, but this lady had an L and kept temping on the same chart.
One thing I noticed was that most of them had either low temps, barely above coverline, or very erratic temps post o. Idk what this all means for me but I'm kind of frustrated really. At this point I just want to get started on a new cycle. I want this month behind me. It's so annoying really.

Mine was an oopsie as well, but since I had one ovary and tube removed due to cancer by then, and was told it was unclear if I could even have kids, I decided it was a blessing in disguise

Everytime I jump on here I feel like so much has happened! So funny how this group never runs out of things to talk about

Angel so happy you talked to your doctor, Im sure the word "normal" was such a relief. Seems like you found a good doctor too!!

Nazz- Had my first at 23, she was an oopsie but Im now 26 and trying for another so everything worked out good!! When are you testing??

mmm...my new favourite snack (well it's one I've had for years) is canned tuna with chopped pickles on crackers Just can't have it too often because of mercury levels in tuna.

26 and TTC #1! My temperature was up today, and I actually got some solid sleep, but I refuse to interpret that to mean anything, since the last time my temperature spiked, it did a complete nose dive the next day.

My new strategy to deal with my BBT anxiety is to skip days of temping where I know I'm not sleeping or going to get an accurate reading. Taking it 3 hours early made it worse than not taking it at all, because then you're thinking "did I not ovulate or did I just take it too early?!?!?". I figure even if I have a few gaps in my days, I should still be able to see a shift. I'm mostly upset because my charts were so pretty before and now they'll be hideous!!!

Anyone had experience taking something to help them sleep? Do you know if Tylenol PM or something along those lines would effect your BBT?

OH and I would be married if we could be -_- it's a long story, but it is illegal for us to be married for another... year and a half I think. It's very confusing and hairy. We wanted to wait until we could get married, but then we were just like screw it. We want babies lol.

I'm not going to test unless AF doesn't show up... so I guess I have about 9 or 10 more days.

I can answer your last set of questions. Ibuprofen suppresses progesterone, which can lower bbt, so don't take it or advil pm post o. Tylenol is totally fine, the catch is the pm part. Otc sleep medd are either doccixlyine succinate or, more commonly, diphenhydramine hcl(which is exactly the same as benadryl) are both anti-histamines and won't effect your temp BUT can dry up CM, so don't take it before you O.

So pre-o, stick with supplements like melatonin and tryptophan
to aid in sleep, so you don't mess up your CM.
After o, stay away from ibuprofen, but both tylenol and.any anti histamine is fine.

Hope that helped!

Oh and valerian root with melatonin will also naturally lower anxiety.

Hope this helps!

Wow! Hello expert! Great to know... I had no idea! So totally throwing my ibuprofen out the window. And I actually love Benadryl as a sleep aid... Not any more!

Thanks Angel. These are the simple questions my doctor refused to answer!
