So this is my chart. This is also the first time I’ve ever charted my bbt, much less taken it to begin with! Lol! So, does this look correct??? I’m supposed to ‘O’ within the next couple of days I think, as I have (TMI) watery CM, and my cervix is super high, soft, and open. Also, when will crosshairs appear in my chart?

Are you taking your temperature at the same time every morning (and before moving around, drinking water, getting out of bed)?
You will get crosshairs after FF detects three consecutive high temps.

Yes I am. My alarm clock goes off at 5:55, & by 6am I’m awake and reach for the thermometer and temp. Then I record it, and get up and go to the restroom, etc. I’m just really new to this, and I’m not sure I’m doing it right. FertilityFriend says the open circles are inaccurate info, but I’m not sure how? I do the exact same thing every morning…???

Are you logging it at the exact same time each day and are you using a basal thermometer? Strange that you have had a series of lower and series of higher temps before ovulation.

Yes, I’m taking it at the same time each morning. 6am on the dot. However, when I first started temping, I didn’t know there was a basal thermometer….so I started with a regular one, and did it vaginally. I decided to stick with that exact method so I wouldn’t have to discard the entire month, because I switched thermometers. So with knowing that, can anyone explain why I have wonky first temps prior to ovulation??? I am unaware of any medical issues that would cause an odd cycle. However, I have my first obgyn appt Tues morning to get a check up since we haven’t gotten pg in over a year. Me (30) DH(39)

basal thermometers are more accurate for this purpose because they operate on a smaller range. I would guess using a fever thermometer is why you have wonky temps. I don’t think regular thermometers are accurate enough to the small decimal places to detect ovulation.
