Will that ‘gear up but no O’ my body did on CD 17 have an affect on my chances of getting pregnant this month?

No. Your body can gear up to O many times before actually O’ing. My body geared up 2-3 times usually before O’ing which is why I had long cycles. I O’d on CD35 and got pregnant just fine and am currently 17 weeks. It’s more annoying I think than problematic. I used Wondfo OPKs from Amazon to check ovulation (cheaper). I could see them get gradually darker then wane back down to barely there a few times before actually becoming positive with O following a day or two later.

Your chart looks good and your timing is great. Good luck when you decide to POAS after the TWW! Also, your O date determines your cycle length. Your LP will usually be about the same amount of days each cycle. If your body takes a little longer to O, your LP will stay the same but your cycle will be a little longer. If you have to chart a few cycles before getting a BFP you’ll see the pattern and what is normal for your body’s O dates and LP length.
