    @MrsDiddles:  i would think that if you have your anemia under control and your hemoglobin levels are normal, it shouldn’t affect your temps!  BUT i’m not a doctor.  πŸ™‚

    @MrsR4ever:  I didn’t realize anemia could impact pregnancy and/or conception. :o( I have been taking prenatals with a high level of iron and folic acid to better prepare my body, but I guess I should make an appointment with my PCP.

    @FreckledFox: That’s what I thought too. But I’m not too sure anymore… DH and I have been NTNP for the better part of 2 years and throughout all of that time we have had little to no pregnancy scares. So something has to be up.

    @FreckledFox:  FF said it was the 17th originally (cd13) then changed it to the 18th (cd14) for no real reason. I did the override because I’m 100% convinced I O’d overnight or early morning CD12/13, by the end of cd13 I had low/closed cervix and more C-CM than watery. But I marked it for what I had that morning (I check my CM like 3 times a day because I’m crazy. lol, I usually go with what it is by the end of the day, but didn’t change that day… I guess I could?)

    ETA: Just edited my chart for the C-CM CD13 and removed my override and FF gave me crosshairs for the same day. so I’ll stick with that.

    @MrsDiddles:  My mother was VERY anemic growing up, and it got worse when she was pregnant with my sister and myself. Her doctor just had her increase her iron supplements and she also had to have iron shots once or twice. As far as i know, it didnt really affect her too much as long as she took her iron (from what she tells me) but its great to get your levels checked!  Too much iron is bad too… see what your Doctor says about it.  πŸ™‚

    @FreckledFox:  Thanks!  I didn’t even notice; I have been exhausted due to my allergies, so I am barely awake when I take my temp and put it in in the morning.  So far it is following the same pattern most of my cycles follow; it is nice that I have enough cycle history to really see a pattern.  I got way too excited over the little things last month, so I am really trying to avoid it this month.

    @wandering_gypsy:  oh it’s red Cross Hairs now! Did you change things? I would avoid overriding until you are pretty far into the cycle. FF usually will adjust accordingly! It can adjust your O date at 12DPO if it likes!

    Right now, cycle day 13 Looks right, you probably ovulated Overnight/ Early morning! Also regarding your your CP and CM, you should mark down the MOST fertile signs throughout the day. if i have a Low- firm-closed cervix all day, then at night it gets soft, I’ll mark it soft for the day. Same goes with CM, always mark the most fertile one!

    That being said, 7DPO is really early! My magic number is 12DPO, but since one of your luteal phases is 10 days, and another is 13 days, Maybe test at 11 DPO? Or when AF is late?

    ETA: (Ladies, correct me if i’m wrong) i’m Pretty sure that FF relies on your temperature  99% and if your cervix and mucus do not correspond, then it’ll just dot the crosshairs. So since yours are solid, there is really no doubt here!  πŸ™‚

    @FreckledFox:  I did to see what it would do.  On cd13 morning CP was about  medium across the board with inbetween watery and creamy CM (tmi but texture of C-cm but clear like “watery), but we had BD’ed the night before so I kind of wrote it off and by the afternoon it was firm/closed/low and creamy CM, so it was kind of a crap shoot, which is why I hadn’t changed it, but I’d rather not override my O date if I can, so I’ll leave it the way it is now.

    @wandering_gypsy:  I think your chart looks great, and when you and FF agree, that makes it even better!

    @FreckledFox:  Oh trust me… my crazy doesn’t need the fuel.  I think since last month was my first TTC, I went off the deep end a little bit.  It probably made it worse that we made a snap decision 5 days before I ovulated that we wanted to bump up TTC a month; it all just happened so quicly!  I feel more sane this month though.  DH even made a comment about how calm I am about the whole thing this time.  Your temps do seem fairly similar to the previous cycles though, so that is good!

    @FreckledFox:  haha definitely and thanks for the help.  It’s so hard to decide what to do when everything is “up to user interpretation”, you know?
