10dpo is generally when I start testing- and mostly that is because after my miscarriage my lp went down to 11 days. Yeah if you are 10 dpo it is very early but not insanely early lol.. Anything before 9dpo is insanely early to me.

Well if I am only 10 dpo now when I was testing before (what I thought was 9 and 10 dpo) was way early. Do you use soft cups for your insems? I have heard that it helps. I didn't even really know what that was until now. I might try it if it really would help. Do you know of anything else that might help increase chances?

I don't use soft cups myself but use a syringe and will even leave the syringe in several minutes often. I try and lay still as well for at least 15 mins. I have looked into soft cups and similar but honestly think it would be way too hard to get one in me.

Yeah. When you mention insemination lots of people (even donors) go on about soft cups and how well they work. To me it seems like if a guy just gets sperm in you the natural way (people used to get pregnant just fine without soft cups) and you can get pregnant, soft cups are unnecessary. They also seem like a pain to mess around with. I have been using syringes as well, and I also leave them in for a little bit.

Either way works, the soft cup way you can just get up again right afterward. Whereas with the syringe only it's best to lay for awhile before getting up to let as many sperm swim into the cervix as possible.

Does using a soft cup increase your chances of conception? Does it make a difference? Do more sperm have a chance of getting through the cervix if you use a soft cup? I thought based on what they look like once you get up it all goes down into the cup part, and I was always kind of confused about how they were supposed to swim out of the cup? Also is the material the cup is made out of inhospitable to sperm? Did you ever finish fixing your bike? Have you tried it out yet?

After I talked to you yesterday I fully expected my temp to keep dropping and AF to show any day. I took my temp this morning and it was up, the highest it's ever been. It went from 98.01 to 98.33. I really thought it would drop, I had in fact resigned myself to it. I'm supposed to get AF in two or three days. I guess more waiting and seeing... Also I adjusted my chart to reflect more of the probable ovulation day.

There is really no confirmation on if soft cups increase anything but the general idea is you are inserting the soft cup and it should be holding the semen close to the cervix and therefore it should get a fair amount of your cm on it and the sperm can swim out. Women have done the syringe (turkey baster) technique for decades successfully.

My trike has been disassembled to change the back tire and I'll be changing the tube today and hopefully put it all back together to give it a ride tomorrow. I have to ride when my guy is up as he doesn't like me going out alone. I'd have to do it without telling him I was going or he wouldn't sleep. ( He works the night shift and sleeps in the afternoon and evening. )
Your chart looks great overall. If you get a few more higher ones your chart could be triphasic which is usually a good sign

I look forward to seeing how everything goes for you with your trike. Yeah, I remember the night shift days. My ex used to work the night shift.

Well I am keeping my fingers crossed, but trying not to get my hopes up too much.

I also had a question about LP. If I ovulate around day 14 and my avg. cycle is 26 days would that affect my LP length?

Yeah that would give you an 11 or 12 day lp which is still fine. Anything 10 or greater is fine

Your LP should stay the same by a day or two no matter when you ovulate.

So what does the LP mean in regards to pregnancy and charting? Like if you are charting, they say if you have elevated temps past your usual LP, that is a good sign, right? Sorry if I seem kind of stupid about these things. I just have never charted or even paid attention to these things before. I never actually thought I would ever need to, so I don't really know anything about, well anything, lol. I took my temp this morning and I really wasn't sure what to expect because AF is supposed to come tomorrow. But it was up even higher, so I don't know...

Are you going to be able to go for a ride today?
