So, this month (midway through my cycle) I decided to start keeping track of my temperature. I know that my “normal” temperature is 97.3. ANYWAY. I believe I O’ed between 23-26. We BD every day during that time period (and a few days afterward, too.)
My temperature was around 97.5 for the first few days after O’ing…and since then it has steadily risen. I’m 14DPO, and I’m up to 98.11. Should I be feeling a little optimistic? I’ve taken three POAS (it’s addicting) but I’ve gotten BFN so far.
Oh. And for the last week or so, I’ve been experiencing this weird pain in my stomach along the lower sides. It isn’t actual OMG I’M DYING pain..more like weird pulling, aching.
AF is supposed to arrive on Monday. THE 2WW IS HORRIBLE D:

Do you keep a chart on fertility friend? I’m curious to see it because I’m wondering if you truly ovulated when you think you did or if it was more likely when you started seeing the 2nd rise. Fingers crossed either way!

@dodgercpkl: I didn’t start tracking until CD20. But before I got off the pill when I was younger, I ALWAYS knew when I ovulated (though I didn’t know what it was then.) I get the “panging” feelings in my ovaries every month around the same time. And the last two months, I’ve felt it around the same time (CD11-15). I wish I would have started charting from the begin D;

@Peffy: I really hope you get a positive by Monday. If not, you always have next cycle to start charting fresh from the start, you know. My temp usually stays pretty high up until AF is about to show, so unless you can compare it to another cycle, it will be hard to tell if this is normal temp for you or not, you know. Either way, I wish the best and hopefully you get your BFP
