    I tink without consistently putting in your CM, it saw the large jump in temp and watery CM on CD24 and changed your O date.  Based on your charts in previous cycles, does CD17 or 24 fit more closely?

    I think temping is not so accurate. go buy ovulation preditors kits…


    you can get them for $.88 each at walmart. it tells you the exact day you ovulate. no tempting or wondering

    yellow7404:  Actually, that’s not true – OPKs do not tell you the exact day you ovulate.  They tell you when you’re having an LH surge, which means there’s a large chance you will ovulate within the next 24-48 hours.  But you can actually have more than one LH surge in a cycle (meaning it’s possible to get a positive OPK without ovulating), and you still won’t know the exact ovulation date without temping.

    Magpie86:  It’s really hard to tell without consistent CM data – this is a great reason to add CM and CP to your daily charting, because those tell you a lot at the time (before your temp spike) about your fertility, and they really help clarify when you have confusing temps like this.  Honestly, I would say either of those O dates looks possible to me.  Do you remember why your temp on CD17 was an open circle?  It might not make a big difference, but at the same time I have to wonder how it would change your chart if that temp was different.  Honestly, I’d say if you get 3-4 days out from now with no signs of AF, test.  If it’s a BFP, yay!  And if it’s a BFN, I think you likely O’d at that later date and can adjust your timeline for testing/AF accordingly.

    I voted 17 but both are possible. 24 could be your O and watery cm was because you were in your FW, or watery could have been a second surge of estrogen. Only time will tell.

    Magpie86:  Yeah, it’s weird what actually ends up making you more neurotic about this fertility stuff!  For me, charting temps, CM, and CP actually keep me pretty calm because I usually know exactly what’s going on with my body.  OPKs made me nuts, because I was always obsessing over “Is that line darker than the last one? Is the test line actually as dark as the control line? Is that really positive?”  I know some people love them, but OPKs made me psycho!

    Magpie86:  I would say between the 17th and the 20th so it’s look like you BD’d during your fertility window.  FWIW OPKs never worked for me while I was charting; I never received a positive test even though I had clear ovulation temp shifts.

    Magpie86:  I think FF’s predictions are stupid sometimes. When in doubt, go with around CD14. As human females, our cycles can vary… but not THAT much. You have a nice regular cycle it looks like.
