It looks like you have a lot of open circles… Are you taking your temp at the same time every morning? It’s hard to tell anything for sure if your temping time fluctuates. 🙂

I’m not sure what your question is? Are you wondering if you ovulated?

@Kellylovesanthony:  I agree with PP – it’s going to be tough to tell if your patterns are reliable because of all the open circles.. try setting a “temping” alarm for the morning so that you temp at the same time every day!

Also, FF isn’t going to show that you’ve ovulated until you have 3 temps in a row above your ‘coverline’ – yes, you have a dip at CD13 and then 2 ‘higher’ temps, but they aren’t very high in comparison to all of your other temps.. It’ll be easier to tell what’s happened once you have a couple more days of temps.

@Kellylovesanthony:  Your thermometer reads to the tenths place (97.1, 96.3) – you are wondering about getting one that goes to the hundredths place (97.13, 96.35)… the 200th place doesn’t exist… 🙂

My thermometer only goes to the tenths place as well, and although it does seem to jump a lot, I think that has more to do with the fact that I sleep with my mouth open at night than how sensitive my thermometer is.. I think your thermometer is fine.

@Kellylovesanthony:  🙂 That’s ok! As for the inconsistent temp timing goes, just because you set an alarm to temp at a certain time doesn’t mean you have to get up! My temp alarm goes off at 6:30 every morning, and I always sleep a few more hours after that on the weekends.. I just have my phone on vibrate under my pillow so it doesn’t wake DH, and I pop in the thermometer (I have it stuck between my mattress and boxspring right within easy reach) and then put it back when I’m done and go back to sleep!

@E_Lynne615:  Ditto!

I wake up, stick the thermometer in my mouth, wait for the temp and then go back to sleep. Mine is 7:30, which is when I wake up for work during the week. And my thermometer only goes to the tenth and it’s totally fine – there’s a definite shift anyway.

tenths is fine. if you’re asking, it doesn’t look like you’ve ovulated yet b/c your temp hasn’t gone up significantly.  you can sign up for this tutorial thing on fertility friend and learn a lot from that. also the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility is great/highly recommended for those ttc
