So! This is my first month TTC. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my thermometer (ordered from Amazon) until literally the day I O’d (got my positive OPK). So I’ve been keeping track ever since (well, I forgot one day).
Basically, I’m just looking for opinions on if it looks ok? Like how it should be looking? I know it’s missing a bunch of stuff, but I kind of don’t know what I’m doing, plus I didn’t start tracking til I O’d. I have no idea what I’m doing, and don’t have anyone in real life I can ask.. Any opinions? I’m obviously going to keep it up each cycle from now on.

Also, I’m assuming my O date was the 18th, even though I got my first positive the night of the 17th..is that right? So technically I’m 6dpo today?
Lol, what a mess!

Are you taking your temp. at the same time every morning? The open circles mean that you have a time that is a big differance from what you usually enter. You want to make sure to always temp at the same time. Other than that, there isn’t really antyhing to look at. You seem to be doing fine.

The chart is so incomplete that it’s difficult to say anything about it. OPKs are not always accurate at detecting ovulation (they never worked for me ever.) It’s likely you O’d somewhere in there but without temping and charting symptoms every day, it’s difficult to tell with certainty which day you O’d.

those two today’s were an hour early. I woke up and HAD to pee, so I thought it would be best to take it early, instead of getting up, going back to bed and then trying? Should I have not done that? Thank you for looking!

Yeah, I wasn’t even sure if it was worth starting so late, but I kind of just wanted to get in the flow of things.

I would definitely not say you ovulated day 18. OPKs can mean anywhere between 12-48 hours or not even at all. To me, I would say you ovulated on CD 19 or CD 20 but it’s impossible to say for sure because you missed CD 20.
Do your best to take your temp at the same time every day, it looks like you’re off to a great start. There’s just not much we can say at this point since it’s so new. Good luck though! And feel free to join the Charters thread. It pretty much rocks.

@AnneTossy: I will say you ovulated on CD19. It would have been easier looking at the pre-ovulation temps, but just by doing a quick look, I can say that CD19 is when you ovulated. Good luck!

@AnneTossy: I don’t think you should expect to learn much at all from your chart this cycle, but just count it as practice for next month. It takes a little while to get into the practice and habit of temping, so I think it’s a good idea to get started before a new cycle 🙂 good luck!
