Can you post a link to your chart, or a picture so we can take a look? 🙂 Could be a variety of things why there are no crosshairs, it will be easier to get a full picture once we can see it. 🙂

@mrspitcher8:  They will generally appear 2-3 days after the rise in temp after a suspected ovulation.  When I charted mine sometimes didn’t appear until 5-6 days post rise.  Some charts never do because they are annovulatory.  It took me 6+ cycles to get the hang of my natural cycle so I would know when to expect an O date and rise in temp so don’t be surprised if the first few cycles are confusing.  A recognizable pattern should emerge after you have charted for a few cycles.

@mrspitcher8:  Because your temps have fluctuated so much you won’t see if you O’d on the 17 or 18 until you have at least 3-4 more days of high temps.

Do your cross hairs appear right after you input your temp for the day or later on?  I’ve had 3-4 days of my temps going up and no cross hairs yet.

I get my cross hairs the same day I get my temp spike so usually a day or two after O.  But my temp spike is very clear.  Your temps are pretty close so you probably wont see the cross hairs until a few more days of consistant 98deg tems, but I’d guess you O’d on CD19.
