    @Turtle Bride:  My DH actually suggested it. I usually don’t bother him with this stuff but I was so confused! Fertility friend does also state that lower temps could be caused by lower room temperatures!

    @Turtle Bride:  Oh! This made me think:

    So what do you guys plan to do with the whole “fall behind” thing? Afghanistan doesn’t do daylight savings so I just switched the whole 8.5 hours when I came back. 

    7 am is my normal time. thinking about doing 6:20, then 6:40, then 7 am? Think that would work? I remember reading how to do it in TCOYF, and i think it reccomended something along those lines…

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Aw darn! I forgot about that! I know it messed me up a bit, but I just kept going with my 6am wake up!

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Thanks!

    Well my OPK is less positive this morning if that makes sense. Yesterday all day the test line was much darker than the control but this morning it is lighter. I am guessing that I O’d yesterday at some point. Didn’t notice a spike or increase in my temp though. I ‘m new at this charting thing so I don’t really have a reference for past months. Will do a few more OPK’s through today and tomorrow to confirm.

    Thanks ladies for all your help. You are such a wonderful source of support and knowledge!

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  I’ll keep my same waking up time since I need to be at work I hope it doesn’t affect my chart…

    @Turtle Bride:  Right, but with time going backwords, waking up at your regular time is like waking up an hour late. I don’t know if that affects your chart.. It doesn’t matter too much with mine, but might be worth thinking about if it does. ; )

    @Treejewel19:  If you didn’t see a temp spike, you likely haven’t Oed yet.  The positive OPK doesn’t mean you were ovulating right then, just that you were having your LH spike – you will likely O 12-36 hours after the spike, so it could be today or tomorrow even.

    ETA – For what it’s worth, I’m not using OPKs anymore, but when I was I Oed 2 days after I got a positive (both months that I used them regularly).

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Hmmm, I hadn’t thought about the time change!  Since it’ll be right toward the end of my cycle (during the TWW, although I won’t really be “waiting” for anything but AF, since we’re TTA right now), I think I’ll just continue as normal.  It’ll make for a weird temp pattern this month, but since I’ll have already confirmed O by then (hopefully!), I don’t think it should matter much.

    @SadieBee:  Thanks so much!

    I got my first positive on Sunday afternoon/evening. Here’s hoping that I O today (have cramps, blech!) and have a temp spike tomorrow.

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  good call on the open circles… I woke up a little later those days (55 and 60 minutes later than the closed circles) but ff gave me open circles (even though my normal wake up time in there is set for smack dab in the middle so I wouldn’t get open circles) and ff moved my crosshairs… not sure how accurate it is but it looks like it makes sense… though that temp for CD19 isn’t reliable (I forgot the therm in the bathroom so I got up then temper… oops). We’ll see I guess. Thanks for the perspective, I wouldn’t have thought it would make a difference!

    @FreckledFox:  I will, definitely, and I’ll let you know what she says. I really think my issue is not ovulation strong enough. I mean, I get great definitive opks, but then my body seems to fizzle out.  We’ll see what she says though. I go on Halloween, can’t come soon enough!

    @wandering_gypsy:  Yeah. Never know. But if you think that 19 was not reliable, that also points in the 14. 

    If you don’t mind me asking (I don’t see where you said before – it might have been when I was gone) what makes you think your O isn’t strong enough? I’ve wondered about this with myself before although I don’t have any evidence necessarily. I just see other people’s OPKs and see how dark they look when positive. Mine is never darker than the control line, and when they’re both equal they’re both quite light. Just makes me wonder…

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  the only reason I wonder if because I have a consistently slow rise after my last positive opk each month, for about two (sometimes more but not much) days then it dips really low for a few days before finally rising again. Also, my opks don’t get darker (at least not noticeably) than the control, just as dark as the control for two days.

    My body is being weird this month. Maybe the traveling? Still waiting to O and enjoying the vacation BDfest!
