I am new to this site- most of my friends and family have gotten pregnant easily with counting days and opk tests. I see lots of people with the ovulation charts with temps. If I do not get a bfp this round, is this something I should start charting as well?

Temping is the only thing that can confirm O. If you get positive OPKs and AF a reasonable time afterwards you can be pretty confident you're Oing but not certain. I love temping. That said, it's not for everyone and sadly it's not a magic fix either.

Thank you for the response. That is very interesting to know. Is this something that needs to be documented over a long period of time before you can see a pattern? Is there an app that you use or prefer?

Fertility friend is great and the app has lots of helpful tutorials about temping, if you decide to go that way. You should be able to confirm O your first month temping, predictions about O dates and things take a little longer but if you kind of know your cycles, that's not really so important.

Blo- I wonder if you just had a short surge and missed it? But temps definitely look like o happened!

Good luck, pinklemom! It sounds like your timing has been good!

Temping seems very useful for those who can do it. I wish it worked for me! I've tried but being a restless sleeper (can't count on getting the suggested 3+ hours of continuous sleep at any given time) and an anxious person (I sleep even worse knowing I'm trying to temp because of the pressure :P) makes it hard to get consistent temps.

Thank you Sosha- I am definitely going to look into it if we do not conceive this month. I feel more hopeful this month than I have recently. I am trying to stay positive but cautious also.

Pinklemon - welcome and Good luck! This is my 3rd cycle charting and I feel like I learn a little bit more with each cycle. I used to track in 3 or 4 different apps but settled on FF. It's not the prettiest to look at but I find it seems the most accurate for me.

AFM: Yay for crosshairs I got this morning! Officially 3dpo and TWWing. I've given myself permission to start testing Sunday (9dpo). FF moved my expected AF back 2 days to August 5th.

TB - are you a POAS addict like I am? Lol since we are cycle buddies I'm hoping we can be testing buddies too.... but if you have more will power than me I completely applaud you and will NOT try to peer pressure you into my craziness. (much)

Yay! Welcome to the TWW!

AFM - 7DPO, I had terrible nausea on Saturday. I was in the shower thinking about making eggs for DH and my 8 year old cousin who was staying with us and almost got sick. Later that evening on our way to dinner it happened again. I had a headache as well. Yesterday I had some dizziness. Yesterday & today have been better. Still some nausea but nothing like Saturday. And my boobs have been sore since 1DPO.

Owl - I also love temping! I'm glad it's not just me. LOL.
