I'm with you guys. I deciding if I am going to buy okp. I know I have a trial hopefully next cycle, but its this cycle I'm currently on. Thankfully I'll be on a long weekend in the middle of my TWW so that should pass the time a bit. I'm going to pack the thermometer just to make sure I have high temps. If not I'll be a little sad.

How often you ladies going to DTD?

We can obsess about high temps together. I am still in two minds about whether to pack it. DH and I regularly dtd about once a week but now we are obviously having to up it! We are trying to dtd every other day but wondering whether to up it to every day around ovulation. I have read conflicting things. What do you do?

citrus,
is there any way to just take your temp, but not think about scheduled sex and everything else just input your temp in the morning and then put it away? my family is coming to visit in 2 weeks and i am taking them all over japan for 8 days. it's the week before AF or a BFP so was sort of hoping to temp just to get a full first cycle of data, but i don't know how that's gonna work...one of the nights we are staying in a 10 person japanese style room! not sure they would appreciate a 4am wake up to my thermometer beeping away! might just have to skip that day

mummy2o,
here's my chart My Ovulation Chart
and my husband said to me this morning, "wanna have sex tonight?" like he was asking if i wanted toast for breakfast or something, it was the funniest thing. so, maybe there'll be an extra PM on that chart later

I'm doing every other day right now also citrus. OH hates it but he likes the end product so he's contently happy I think. I may up it during ovulation which will be sunday=tuesday. I had a high temp this morning but if I set my alarm I wake up every 20 minutes. So not thrilled about that. I had terrible broken sleep

Yeah see under normal circumstances I would do just that but the reason I kinda don't wanna take it is because my temps are stressing me out this cycle. I temp in Celsius but have converted for you. They've been as low as 35.4 = 95.72. This is my 5th cycle temping and I've never had a temp as low as that before and now I've had it twice and others similar. So not really sure what's going on. Only thing different is that I've taken Evening primrose oil and it's been really hot so have been sleeping in less clothes/with a sheet instead of a duvet and had quite a few nights of broken sleep.

Don't think I can stand to not know whether I've ovulated though! I'll see how I feel on the day. Sounds like you two are both approaching o-time. I hope I'm with you!! Good to see you've been doing lots of baby making. I think I'm gonna switch to two day on, one day off during my fertile time.

so, i thought that spike in my temp from a couple days ago might have been ovulation, but had way more EWCM today than 2 days ago, which makes me think it hasn't quite happened yet but is close. had sex tonight just in case

my sleep is crappy as usual and i was really tired this morning.

am mostly just (impatiently) waiting until i have more dots on my chart to get a better idea...

I'm in celsius also. If its that low maybe you need to recalibrate your thermometer especially if its old. Although if its new, maybe your body temp is just low. My lowest is always 36.2 but on my old thermometer it was in the 35's.

I hope I do ovulate but I'm so stressed with life right now its kinda hard. Thank god for the mini break!

The spike in your temp will stay up for several days, although when I implant my temp drops below my cover line. But everyone is different.

Yeah jumping o temps can be really frustrating and erratic. I find the worst of it is in the TWW. Wont be so bad on your first cycle as you wont have anything to compare it to but last month I was constantly comparing to see if my temp was higher than the previous month. It can get pretty all consuming, and that in itself seems to throw my temps out!!!

I don't think I am going to be able to resist taking my thermometer away with me. Id like to have the time off, but don't think I can cope with not knowing whether I'm 3dpo or 6dpo. Still not entirely decided, will see how I feel on the day!

Any indications that you have ovulated/are about to? I got some nice EWCM today so think it might be on its way.

PS mummy2o, my thermometer is only 4 months old, so shouldn't be a prob. My lowest temp previously had been 35.7, but usually between 35.9 and 36.3 pre o. Hmmm, we shall see what tomorrow brings

citrusfruit,
CM wise, i thought O would be today, but my temp this morning stayed relatively high, so i got cross hairs:

My Chart
and am now at 3DPO.

so my question now is:

do i just have a really long LP?
my cycle is very regular at 28-30 days but if i Oed at CD10, that means that 14DPO is still only CD24 and FF is predicting i get my next period on CD25. i assume the default in FF is 14 days for LP, which is why FF is predicting that...so maybe mine is just longer?

but then, FF is marking my "test day" on what used to be CD30, based on last month's 30 day cycle, but assuming i'm not pregnant and predicted to get my period on CD25, that's actually the CD5 of my next cycle. do i have to wait that long?!

seems like 10-14DPO is pretty average for people getting BFPs?
