    @SadieBee:  I hear ya. Practice makes perfect. 😉 I have also gotten extended O pains! Longest was two full days. Most of the time I don’t even get them so that was crazy.

    @Tomato22:  Yey for the smiley face!!!I think getting a negative OPK means that your reached your LH peak, so likely you already ovulated or are about to. Time to get busy lady!

    @SadieBee: 

    Yep, before ovulating, I get very light cramps for a few days. Your body is probably gearing toward ovulating. OMG what if your body knows you will receive good news in the next few days and it’s holding itself for some great BD. 🙂 I wish mine will hurry up. 

    I’m waiting a few more days to start taking OPKs although my temp today went down.

    @FreckledFox:  By Valentine themed I mean “My Bloody Valentine” by Ale Smith or Stone’s “Enjoy by 2.14.14”

    @SadieBee:  I wish I had some sign for my O date.  O pains sound terrible but pretty cool at the same time.

    AFM, got another BFN. ugh.  I swore I saw something on the one I took last night and I looked again this morning ( I know, I know) and it was still there.  I honestly think it was an evap or just my head playing games.  Tomorrow I will use a frer if AF doesn’t show.  My temp is the exact same as yesterday which kind of gives me hope that it won’t drop.

    @Tomato22:  That means that Lutenizing Hormone peaked. Your follicle will burst or has burst and release an egg  and then 24-48 hours later estrogen will take over and your temp will rise. So you have not ovulated yet but it could be the same day or in two days. Just watch your temps!

    @princessbelle:  Sorry about the BFN. Always feel free to post here if you think you see something! FX your temp stays up and AF stays away!

    Question: my opks went back negative, but I got very little temp increase Today. on e it goes back negative does that mean we are too late to bd? So confused on this timing thing.

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Depends on when your surge is… you could have an early or late one. If its late then Ovulation follows fast! If early, then you might have the average 24 hours. I was looking at your chart today and it looked like your temp was already up there. I’m thinking O day was CD16! I usually O on the first day of +opk.  Or it could be a fake out and you could do a dip then shoot up. Hard to tell right now but if its a fake out then I’d BD just to be safe!

    @FreckledFox:  Today is higher than the last six days, but just barely. I don’t think it was CD 16 because a) it only brought my temps back up to normal. and b) Our heat was wonky those two nights and it was freezing in our house. CD 17, it was actually super hot. (I live a life of extremes). So I’m thinking we got the temp down from 80-something, but that brought the temp back up to normal. 

    Idk. I think we’re out for this month though. I have an inkling that I’m about to get a yeast infection. (second this year and second ever, what the hell?!)

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  I was reading about Echinacea for sickness and I heard its suposed to be good for yeast infections!! I hope you dont get one… but… something to think about. Looking at your chart I say CD16. But if you don’t feel it, then it could be wrong. I don’t think you are out yet! You haven’t confirmed anything!

    Hi ladies, can anyone have a look to my chart and help me out? 

    I’m on CD 12 and I was expecting to ovulate on CD 13 or 14.  This morning I got dotted crosshairs saying I ovulated on CD9!  What??  I had no symptoms of ovulatation, my CM was very scant/creamy, and my CM is now becoming watery, borderline ewcm.  I usaully have a 26-28 day cycle and didn’t even think to take an OPK around CD9, let alone BD (I just finished spotting and was in no mood to BD!). 

    I know the dotted CH means FF is unsure but I just want other opinions.  This new coverline is higher than my previous month and also the temp spike on CD 11 is from very little sleep and drinking, so I’m not sure if it should count…. I’m really hoping this isn’t right and we didn’t miss our window.  I’m going to continue to test OPK’s and BD as much as possible to be safe.  Has anyone else gotten a curveball like this before?
