I’m back. 3 months ago, I posted about my journey. I became pregnant and had an early MC. It was devastating; my husband and I decided to try again in June. I spent the last 3 months doing a ton of research, charting my BBT and using OPKs. I felt like I was FINALLY starting to get the hang of my cycle (O on CD15). I channeled my heartbreak from the MC into getting my life together. I even began eating healthy and working out and lost 15 pounds. So, you can imagine my excitement when the time FINALLY came to TTC. When I got PG in March, it was literally a 1 time try, during what I’m pretty sure was an unfertile time; it seemed crazy that I actually conceived.
This month I was ready to go!! However, EVERYTHING has gone wrong this month. I got strep throat RIGHT when we were going to start trying. We got 2 BD sessions in, but I felt awful. To top it off, I have gotten NO + OPKs! I am now on CD20, and still have not had a +. My chart reflects a temp rise today, but I woke up an 2 hours later than normal today, so I’m thinking that had something to do with it. I’m going crazy! Everything is going wrong. I am having cramps and my moods are CRAZY, but I don’t know if I will even O this month. I’m so frustrated! I am currently on Clindamycin, but my doc said it should not impact my cycle. I am attaching a picture of my chart. Can you guys look at it and give me any thoughts on whether or not you think I’m totally out this month? We were able to BD on one day that I had EWCM, so I’m hoping something is working in there. Grr…

I think your BD on CD17 is promising, you won’t know if that temp rise is a true O temp shift until you temp for the next few days but it looks promising. I’m sorry about your MC, I just had one too. I’m glad you’re trying again and I wish you the best!!!

@want2beeamom: 3 days of high temps and you should get your crosshairs on your chart. I have a really hard time waking up at the same time everyday to temping, but even on the days when I temp a couple of hours later I haven’t had that high of a temp rise. What time are you taking your OPK’s? You could be missing the LH surge on the OPK’s which is why you didn’t get a +. If you want more feedback you could post the same question on the Charters of the Hive thread. The ladies over there are seriously awesome & have great info! GL

+1 to the ladies above! Some people have very short LH surges and can miss it on OPKs if they only test once a day. Your high temp is promising for an O on CD18, but only time will tell – if it stays up, great! If not, it was likely a fluke. Either way, you’re definitely not out this cycle! If you didn’t O yet, you likely will soon. Being sick will commonly delay O by several days, so keep OPKing (twice a day) and keep BDing until you get a for sure O. Good luck!!

i think you might have O’d yesterday. that’s a really big rise and waking up 2 hours later most likely wouldn’t make it rise that much. i think you’ll get your CH in a few days. if you did O yesterday, you guys got good timing wth O-1! FX!
