    Do you use Fertility Friend at all? I would be curious if you put your temps in there to see what is says…

    Nonetheless, I would probably continue to temp and see what your temperatures do after today. It’s hard to say what is right vs. wrong, but in this case I think I would trust the OPK more.

    topshelfprincess :  I would trust my temps more than an OPK, you can gear up to ovulate and then never actually O, whereas your temperatures tell you after the fact when you’ve O’d. What has your CM been like? Also, it’s a bit strange that your app gave you cross hairs already, typically you need 3 temperatures higher than the previous 6 to confirm O. Good luck,

    Trust your temps- the OPK can tell you that you’re likely to be ovulating soon, but not for sure. Temps can tell you that you HAVE ovulated for sure, but usually a few days later. Frustrating I know- I think I heard somewhere that the only way to confirm that you’re definitely currently ovulating is if you’re at the dr’s office getting an ultrasound or something. 

    Also seconding putting your temps into Fertility Friend. I used Ava and my dates were all wrong in the Ava app but when I put my temps into FF they were spot on. (Currently 34 weeks and confirmed via dating ultrasound that FF was spot on predicting my ovulation date.)

    topshelfprincess :  It can definitely be confusing, I agree! I third fertility friend, I’ve used a few different apps and have always found it to be the most accurate! Let us know how it goes!!

    Just my 2 cents… 

    Curious to see what your crosshairs would look like if you removed your high temp on CD16. I believe that high temp is averaging your data to plot your coverline higher. 

    I am more inclined to believe that you O’d on CD20. Removing that high temp might bring your coverline to around 97.2, so temps after CD 20 might be post ovulation, with a small fallback on CD 24.

    Adding.. 

    Generally when charting we look at patterns rather than one or two anomalous temperatures. However, I think your app is wonky anyway because you shouldn’t be getting crosshairs such a short while after a rise. You can only confirm O after seeing three raised temps in a row, so your app definitely has me confused.

    topshelfprincess :  very weird. I’d still go by the OPK for now because it matches your CM. I guess you’ll only find out if your temperature rises in the next few days. Waiting sucks. 

    Anyway it’s not a complete loss as at least you’ll have data for when you finally start TTC.
