So FF says that “Your chart data does not allow ovulation to be pinpointed to within a 24 hour timeframe. Your temperature suggests, however, that ovulation may have occured between CD 9 and CD 13. ” Background: this is my first cycle off BC (ocella) and so far everything has seemed to go back to normal (fx) in terms of CM etc.
I’m also wondering if maybe I should change my start day from the 2nd to the 5th. I screwed up my last pack of pills and gave myself some spotting that was my first period off the pill. It started April 2 but typically I’d get my period on April 5, do you ladies think that changing the day my chart starts makes sense? I think this link should work from FF:

I’m by no means an expert, but your body may have taken a few tries before it sucessfully O’d. Because you don’t have any pre-O temps, it is hard to determine the baseline.
Also, I thought that CD1 is the first day of full flow, so spotting doesn’t count as CD1.
While I hope you get your BFP with this cycle, once you go through a full cycle and chart the temps and changes, you will start to see the pattern and can better predict O.
FX and welcome to TTC!

Thanks! I know, I’m kicking myself for not getting out that thermometer and temping right away!

@hoogirl05: Spotting doesn’t count as CD1, @KH:
is right. CD1 is the first day of flow, or the first day you wake up with flow. So I’d definitely change your CD1 to the 5th. From what I see here on your chart, you haven’t ovulated yet. Your body is leading up to it with your fertile CM and your almost-fertile CP, but I don’t see an ovulation yet. Keep up with the BD and doing your OPKs, it looks like you should get a positive OPK any time now. Good luck!

Thanks! I’ll change the day and I bet things will make a lot more sense!
It’s the first month off BC for us and we’re sort of taking the NTNP route – just see how it goes when we BD (can I even call it that when we’re NTNP?). We found out some really good friends are due in October and that night DH was like, well, I guess you don’t need to take your pills. Both of us didn’t want to be the first in our group to jump on the baby bandwagon, it will be fun to have friends with kids around the same age!
That said, we did BD this morning (sorry Too Much Information, my libido’s back off bc that’s for sure!) and part of me is like, eek, holy crap, this could really happen! Part of me just really doubts it could that easily.

I just wanted to check back in and say thank you for your help with my charting! FX, I think my O day may be today, which makes a lot more sense with my updated start day for my cycle. My wondfo strip this morning looked noticeably darker – not as dark as the control, but darker than the others. Hoping this afternoon/evening’s gives me a positive!
