I need your help ladies. I’ve been charting for the past four months and the first three months were pretty similiar in my temps and CM, but this month (the first month we’re TTC of course) my cycle has been different. My average ovulation day is day 13 and this cycle (on day 18 today) has yet to detect an ovulation day. Has anyone experienced something similar to this?
here is this cycle’s chart so far…
last cycle’s chart…
2 cycles ago…

It’s possible to have CM patterns like just prior to ovulation multiple times in one cycle before actually ovulating. Have you been under a lot of stress/been getting a lot of exercise this month? Probably just delayed ovulation. Don’t sweat it… keep BDing! 😉

I didn’t know that about CM patterns, thanks! I don’t think I’ve been under too much extra stress maybe a little and a little more tired because of work. And I have started exercising more so maybe that’s it. Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it!

Are you temping at the same time every day after a good night’s sleep (at least three hours uninterruped)? My temps were erratic but I realized I was temping at the same time but I get up several times over the course of the night and never got a solid three hours. I started temping in the middle of the night (pain in the neck) but then the temps started making more sense.

@sarahmc521: Well you probably O’d on 17. You won’t get cross hairs until you have 3 temps above the cover line. Lots of things can make your follicular phase longer…maybe you were battling a bug and you didn’t even realize it. And if it really is 17 then it’s not a ton late…

@Littlebean912: I’ve been temping at the same time everyday without waking up beforehand, but thanks for your help!
@JaneyD: maybe you’re right, I am around a lot of germs so that could be right. I didn’t know abot the 3 temps above cover line thing, so I guess I’ll find out in a day or two hopefully. Thanks for your help!
