Hey guys, I need help with FF settings —
I just started my new cycle, and have decided to start temping at 6:30am in stead of 7, since I kept waking up at that time and it was probably messing up my temps. My question is, how do I change the default time in FF, so that it knows I’m taking my temp at 6:30am?
I’m pretty sure when I signed up, it asked me at what time I would temp, and I put 7. And if I temp outside of that range, it gives you white circles…so there must be a default time setting somewhere…I just can’t find it.

BFN for me today @ 12DPO. Oh well. Sad but nothing you can do. Not even a faint little line, just nothing. Guess maybe we’ll wait and start up again in the fall like we had originally planned.
ETA: temp was still way high but probably because i didn’t sleep much…. that is one dissapointing/good looking chart. LOL.

@luli29: When you click “Enter Data” button then in Primary tab you should see a “Set Default” next to Time: If you click it takes you to settings where you can change the default. Hope this helps. FX this is your month!!
@bunny: Sorry 🙁 keeping fx you don’t have any cycsts and can start next cycle.
There is still hope until AF. Hoping you get BFP soon!!
I am a bit disappointed we had to cancel IUI since DH woke up too tired from work and late nite. We are just going to get in some extra BDing today & tomorrow and hope it covers all bases. My temps have been up and down pre-O guessing that is effect of clomid not so pretty!

@chastenet: Thanks. It’s good to get some reassurance that this could be just my normal temps. I guess our body just doesn’t work like a textbook all the time.
Hopefully you’ll have a plan what is next soon.
I’m sorry for your BFN. But as PP said it’s not over until AF shows up and your temp is still high. Do you know how long your LP is?
I’m sorry you had to cancel IUI. But who knows maybe this will still be your lucky month. FX!

i am new in posting in the TTC… I am in my first month of charting my temperatures, basically just to keep track of my cycles so that I am more aware of my body when we are ready to TTC… but I don’t think we were really safe in preventing the possibility of pregnancy…
My previous month I had an “annovulatary” cycle according to my GYNO… I got my “period” on day 20 rather than my normal 30 day. So I wasn’t 100% sure that I was going to even O this month…(I didn’t start temping yet)
I have an increasing temperature since O on day 20…. and keeps increasing with today it jumped .3 degrees? Ive been temping at 8 am with 2 days at 730 Should I be preparing for pregnancy tests? I been reading TCOYF and is this a starting pattern of a “triaphisic” cycle? Is this a normal increase?? Sorry if this is a dumb question and if Im worrying about this too early in the cycle….. ( Also, I really wasn’t putting my CM in the stats)

@Petor2011: Hi and welcome. No, you were def not safe in preventing a pregnancy. At 7dpo it is still very early to say anything and it could go either way. You could prob test at 10dpo but if you want a more accurate result I recommend to wait until 12dpo or even longer if you can. I hope you’ll get the outcome you are hoping for.

@elchalten: Not sure, as this was my first cycle charting. Last cycle (which was the first off BCP) AF arrived on CD34… however I would say probably around 15 days?

Thnks for the input… just a quick background…I was using the Iperiod app months before I started charting to keep track of my period days and it was pretty accurate into predicting my AF start days.
So I was using both Iperiod and FF to keep track of my temps etc. I convinced myself that I had PCOS or was infertile because of the month before and according to the IPeriod my fertile period was a week earlier than FF ( since my temps never increased until day 20, I figured I was annovulatary again… since I didn’t have the CM signs).I figured we were safe ..yup the next day the temps drops I realized the “oops”…. Either way we will be happy, we just wanted to get through this year before TTC…
I causally mentioned to DH that we BD’d during the fertile window.that i got confused with the Iperiod information.. but I don’t want to worry him of a possibility of being preg. too early if not necessary.. Just good to have some support in the waiting time 🙂

@JCar: I’m sorry about your odd waking habits, I can related because I’ve done that the last two nights too!!
I just keep changing it to 540 every morning, I dunno how to change it! I would like to know also!
A BFN doesn’t mean your out, I didn’t get my BFP until the day after I missed my period. =)
Welcome!!!! I’m a newer charter too =) Everyone’s different when it comes to temps and pregnancy, some experience a dip, some consistantly go up, etc etc. I think on FF I read that it’s too common for not-pregnant women to get the triphasic pattern for it to tell much, and too often did pregnant women not get the triphasic pattern, but you know…definitely some risky BD haha. I would recommend testing. I am trying to be a huge promoter for waiting as long as possible (I just think it’s better for mental health…though as the other ladies know I am not good at what I preach because I started testing at 10 DPO last 2 cycles lol…I will
be different this cycle!!!) like at least 12 maybe even 14 DPO like Elchalten said. Were you on any hormonal birth control when using the iPeriod app??

@ChuckNorris: I really needed to stick to our deal!! LOL. I was literally losing sleep last night LOL. One side of me is glad i tested as i’ve been able to focus and be a normal human being however i guess a little uncertainty is still there.
When you got your BFP had you tested prior to the day after AF was due and get clear BFN’s?
Post # 42
@StaceyA: Yes, I tested every other day starting at 10 DPO with FMU.. The day I got my BFP was faint =) Yeah, I feel like when I test early and get a BFN, it gives me more motivation to go a couple days without testing. I will try to hold on to that feeling whenever I ovulate next…if ever… urghh. Had a rough sleep night last night, woke up at 520 when my alarm is set for 540 for temping, but in my sleepy confusion I thought it was 1 am (why???) so I got up and let the dog out. I realized that it was 520 as I wake up so I temped, it was 97.18 (hi favorite temp!)… I didn’t open my mouth but I did stand for like 30 seconds when I temped. So I retemped at 645 and it was 97.58… Here’s what my charts look like:
With the temp at 520 after standing:
And the chart with the temp at 645 after standing at 520. FF didn’t make it a white fot so I’m tempted to use that temp
Boo for me being so incoherent when I wake up! Which temp should I use bees?

@ChuckNorris: Well that gives me a little hope still. 🙂 I won’t be testing again until Monday when AF is due or Tuesday if she’s not here yet. I’m assuming it’s not going to happen so i won’t waste any more pee sticks 🙂 ! AF always shows first thing in the morning so if i’m ready to go to work Monday and she’s still not here, i’ll test then. FX for me.
I think i’d use your first temp, your 97.18… but I am not a pro at this LOL. I think that one will be the more accurate even though you had been standing for a brief moment. I think by the later time your temp would have gone up naturally….
Maybe @bunny can help!
Post # 44
@ChuckNorris: I would use the lower temp as I think it is more accurate.

Anyone else POASing around May 12? I’m going crazy at 6DPO, and I’m looking for a TWW buddy.
Post # 46
@redsmarties: Me! I’m the same exactly. Though as I said on the MayPOAS thread – I’m planning to test Friday morning the 11th because my parents are coming into town that night. Just hope I can even hold out that long!
