Ok charters in all honesty is a thermometer that goes to 2 dp going to really make a difference to my chart? I’m starting a new cycle tomoro (boo AF is def coming – too heavy for spotting now but too light to want to call CD1 today) and figure if I “need” a new thermometer then CD2 is a good day to start using it :S I think my thermal shift was noticeable enough but *shrugs* anyone used both and found a benefit to the 2dp?

Had a big sulk (and a rant) about AF and how everyone we know just gets pregnant accidentally and we can’t blah blah blah but bounced back better than last month – maybe boxing class helped that hehe

you know what my tv is rubbing it in thou (no seriously) – every other ad has a baby in it – nappy ad, cream ad, health insurance ad *sigh* mean tv, just mean πŸ˜›

Good morning, everyone!  I’ve never posted in this thread yet, I usually post in the POAS thread but I need some help.  This is my second month on clomid but my first month charting.  Within a day or two of charting (once I got the hang of it and starting charting at exactly the same time) my temperatures got very regular.  When I look at other ladies charts I see more of a range of temperatures.  Is it wierd that mine is so predictable?  

I am not using a thermometer that says “basal” but the pharmacist at target said it would be okay as long as i got one accurate with a tenth of a degree.   This  morning when I got the same temp for the third day in a row, I was so confused.  I had my husband take his temp and his was half a degree lower than mine so the thermometer definitely recognized the difference.  By that time I had already been up to pee and moved around a bit so I took my temp again and this time it was a tenth of a degree higher and that reassured me a bit as well.

Anyone care to peak at my chart and let me know if this is unusual?

@PumpkinSpiceChai:  Hi! Welcome.  πŸ™‚  I hope Clomid does the trick for you this cycle! I looked at your chart and your pattern isn’t that off! The only thing is that most Pre-O temperatures are lower, and then hit the 98 degree area post O. A BBT thermometer is the only true way to get your Basal Body Temperature, or else, you are just taking your normal temperature, which doesnt fluctuate too often. I would finish out this chart with this thermometer, since this is your first cycle charting, these high temps and pattern might be YOUR pattern, and not mine or any other Bees.  πŸ™‚ Sorry for the long response. In short, your pattern looks fine, but I would get a BBT thermometer next cycle if this one doesn’t look right!

@candy11:  That’s a hard decision, but you gotta do whats best for you and your husband always. I still have my FX for you, and I hope you end this monster of a cycle normally.

@ShellVee:  I would say yes, and no to the 2 decimal places. Haha, yes because you’d see more of a flow of temps rather then jagged or straight lines, BUT some ladies have perfectly fine charts with only 1 decimal place.  πŸ™‚  I perfer the 2!

@FreckledFox:  Aaah well while I’m buying out half the preconception section at the chemist I’ll check out the 2dp and see… Or maybe I’ll just price up for the next month and get one ready for next month hmmmm

@FreckledFox:  Thanks!  If I have to do another cycle, I think I’ll be switching thermometers.  I did notice that my temps seem high compared to others.  But, I am on clomid and have been having tons of hot flashes.  Don’t know if clomid could be affecting my temperature in general as well?

@PumpkinSpiceChai:  I’d definitely get a BBT thermometer for your next cycle, they are so much more precise, and it really does seem to matter! One thing to look for – get one that reads temperature quickly. Mine says a minute, but I swear it took 4 minutes this morning (and it was a morning where I could have gone back to bed, ugh). 

Also, I’ve always though my temperature seems low compared to others…I think it’s just that everyone’s body is different. Here’s me: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/kate02121

@candy11:  That must have been a tough decision, but I’ve been following your story and it sounds like it’s the right one for you both!

@ShellVee: It shouldn’t cost much to replace it if you want to! Mine is the generic brand from the drug store and it was less than $10 I think.

@PumpkinSpiceChai:  I’m sure it could be! Hopefully clomid does the trick and there is no next cycle!!

@candy11:  Thank you, its good to be back, although hard to keep with everyone.  Sorry about your journey.  Can I just tell you that after looking at your chart, you might have O’d on CD67 instead?  IDK it could be a possibility and it could also be that you didnt O at all.  The fact that you were taking B6 and your temp went up with that pattern, makes me question your O time. I would just a b/w and see your progesterone level at this point and see if you can get a b/w pregnancy test.  Just a thought!  I think testing on a stick at this point, with all your doubts, makes no sense.  GL to your hubs and with everything! πŸ˜‰

@PumpkinSpiceChai:  I think when you are on Clomid, your temps could be a bit off at first.  Also, it could your thermometor.  Are the batteries new?

@Utopia4us:  apparently I don’t have a range of choice here (quick search online) and it’ll cost me around $20 to get a bbt *ouch* makes me realise how pricey TTC things are here… We don’t have cheap HPT either (I had to order mine online from East Australia (I’m west)) hmmm I might have to suck it up :-S
