Is this your first cycle charting? First off BCP? It’s a little all over the place with those open circles, did you temp at a different time then normal? (I’m guessing so since it was the weekend). You need to set an alarm and temp at the same time each morning before getting out of bed to get a reliable temp chart. And it doesn’t look like you’ve O’d yet either based on those rollercoaster temps and no other supporting data. Keep working at it and you should see a pattern eventually.

ttcbbnumb2: I can’t see your chart but I really advise you to keep at it. IMO it’s really worth it to see the pattern and get to know your body better. I had really all over the place temps last month but I persisted and eventually I caught O (reckon I’d have given up on opks earlier thinking I’d just missed it). I knew I hadn’t Od based on the chart. I try to be as consistent as possible when temping but I dont set an alarm (except at weekend)as I never go back to sleep. If I’m more than 30 minutes out I get a temp converter to adjust it to what it should be.

Ah, I see it now. Make sure you keep using OPks so you know when you are about to O.

I agree with PP. The open circles could really be throwing off your chart. You need to make sure you are temping at the SAME TIME every day, even weekends. It can’t just be when you first wake up. If you start doing that, hopefully the chart will become less wonky 🙂

I agree with PP too. Open circles are bad news! Also the point of charting is to see an overall pattern month to month, not just figure it out from a few days. And for what it’s worth, I had a butt ugly chart the month I got pregnant!
