    @MrsGrayIndy:  Not at all! There really is no normal in the TWW. It could have to do with progesterone levels I believe, so as your boy makes more it may go up again. As long as your LP is long enough, and you aren’t droppping below your coverline excessively you should be fine!

    @MrsGrayIndy:  This site explains the temp dip at 5DPO pretty well along with other FAQs.  http://www.amandabears.com/faq.html#.UMEdjYZ_Cdl  I’ll copy the part specific to your question though, this seems to be coming up for a few bees lately. Seems it is a normal part of our hormone fluctuations during our cycle.  The only time a temperature dip might mean you are out for the month is when it occurs close to the time you would expect AF to arrive.  However, as we all know, even then anything can happen and you aren’t out til AF shows!


     Q. Temperature Dip at 5DPO? A. This is your Corpus Luteum dip. This is NOT at all related to an implantation dip. You will see this dip happen at (some women) between 2- to 5 days passed ovulation. This is when your estrogen dips (drops) and your Corpus Luteum takes over produce more progesterone. Notice how after the dip your temp will shoot back up?

    Cross post from POAS: As for me I’m on day 6 of the flu from hell. Got AF 5 days early this month. May be POAS at the end of the month. I think I need to increase my cm. How should I do this? Green tea, grapefruit juice or mucinex? I’ve been lurking and I’m sorry I haven’t responded, no energy. GL to everyone still waiting to POAS!!!!

    I have missed you all! 

    @MrsPuddingface:  I’m sorry about the bfn. It isn’t over until its over!

    @NewfieBullet:  Welcome and GL !

    @glittermoon:  Any update???

    @LuluH:  For your CM, I don’t really have much advice. I tried Mucinex and it did nothing for me except leave a nasty taste in my mouth and make me puke. I drink green tea, and haven’t noticed any CM effects from that at all either. Sorry!!! Maybe someone else will be able to give you some tips! Glad to see you back! Hope you feel better soon! 🙁

    @LuluH:  I’m just lurking, but saw your question about CM – I had lots more this cycle, and I’m not sure whether its the Green Tea i’m drinking (just one cup a day) or the herbs/supplements that my Naturopath has me on. But either way, it was noticably more this time, which I’m thrilled with, seeing as that seems to be one of the biggest ‘keys’ to gettings pregnant. All the best this cycle, and hope that your flu leaves soon.


    Hi everyone else – been following along, but my exile is good for me because it stops me lessens my over analysing every symptom and temp rise/fall 🙂 See you at the end of the week.

    Tentatively hopeful that ovulation has occurred. Maybe possibly perhaps?




    Anyone else find themselves constantly searching for exceptions (ovulations where the temp doesn’t rise immediately, pregnancies where there was no clear temp shift, etc)?

    @canadablue:  Yes! It’s easy to obsess…but stupid advice: try not to. LOL. It gets easier the more charts you do! Your positive OPK on CD15 confuses me. Was it def positive or almost positive? I think you may have O’ed, but not when you have CH’s, I’d guess CD20 since so many temps are on your coverline, which is weird.

    @canadablue:  If you take out watery CM on CD21, does it move your CHs?
