It looks fine to me, keep going. Try and be as consistent as you can. And be sure to track cM.

Keep charting! It is okay to have a few temps that aren’t 100% accurate. You are looking for an overall pattern. Your open circles might be because those temps were taken at a different time than usual.

Kslim13 :  the open circles mean you didn’t take the temp at the same time which may mean the temperature readings aren’t accurate.  The more consistent you can be the better of a pattern you should see

Could be ovulation! See what your temp does tomorrow. If it stays high for a few days I would say you ovulated. If it comes back down it may have just been a fluke high temp.

Kslim13 :  if your temp shift is sustained, it confirms that you ovulated this cycle, but generally speaking, the temp shift occurs after ovulation and you’re no longer fertile by then. You should pick up a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility, it explains everything!

Kslim13 :  I was in the same boat as you. This is my first charting cycle, which happened to coincide with spring break (I’m a teacher) so a few days I accidentally slept through the alarm I set to take my BBT. I still recorded it though, and just noted what days that happened so that going forward I could not that those days might not be 100% accurate and therefore alter any pattern I might see.
