and with elevated temps… I would have probably already taken a pregnancy test by now (but that’s just me.) If you are then it would definitely come up as positive.

why all the open circles? is my first question.

how different was this period than your other periods? Like was it heavier/shorter/lighter/longer?

I would just take a test. Last thing you need is to wind up on “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant”!

hmmm I’m thinking it has to do with temping at different times. and if you didn’t see a difference in your period then I agree I doubt you are pregnant. (still possible but I’m with you) Also you may just be having a late ovulation… gotta love when that happens :-/

It is really hard to make anything of your charts because there are only two months visible and last month has a ton of missing data and this month has a ton of open circles. I think you ovulated on Monday or Tuesday (FF says Tues). Especially with sore breasts, that’s an obvious ovulation symptom for me that comes after it’s happened. Sounds like you just had a light period this cycle, that happens to me every once in a while.

Ok, I’m confused. You just ovulated today (or in the last day or two). Why are you taking pregancy tests? Are you thinking you might be pregnant from last month???????

If you just ovulated, a HPT won’t register a positive until 10DPO or so. You generally can’t rely on the test until after AF is late.

@andreanb:  one thing to keep in mind is that all of the charting in the world won’t help unless you’re consistently temping the instant you wake up. Recently I’ve had a bunch of events where I have to get up early for work than I usually do, but to avoid that altogether, I temp an hour before I actually have to get out of bed. I have an alarm on my phone, temp, and go back to sleep. That works for me, but I know it doesn’t for a lot of folks. That might help make your temps more consistent and your pattern more clear.

Also: higher than usual temps can be affected by a lot of things: stress, exercise, drinking, cold/virus. So those things may be a factor. Have you exclusively used FAM, or have you been on the pill any time in the last six months or so? Some people say that it takes that long for a cycle to even out.
