Try not to worry.  I’m new to charting too, and I think it will take a few cycles to get the hang of it and predict better. Good luck!

I would not rely on a temp dip alone to signal ovulation is impending.

The best predictor is previous cycle length.  Since you are new to charting, next month you will have a better idea of your O day.

I would also suggest getting OPK’s so that you are better able to pinpoint the days that you should BD, based on your LH surge.  You don’t want to wear yourselves out during a week that isn’t your “good week”.

Best of luck to you!!

Don’t rule today out totally.  Usually we BD’d in the days leading up to ovulation but when I finally did get pregant, that month we didn’t stop BDing once I ovulated like usual.  Could it have had something to do with it, you never know.  And don’t get down on yourself.  Some months timing just wont’ work out and you just need to look forward to next month.

I agree with @panterapeach –

I would not rely on the dip alone to indicate ovulation is ahead. Of course, it may, but it also may not. I also agree not to wear yourself out before it may be the right time. I think it is safe to BD every other day until you know your cycles and can BD every day around when you think you ovulated. If you BD every other day, you should still catch it. Also, even if the dip is accurate, you can still BD tonight and probably be just fine.

Good luck!

There can also be an implantation dip.  Were all of the temps above your coverline?  That’s the important part.  If your temp rose, you prob already ovulated.

You definitely can’t judge based on a single temp or two.  You need to get a temp just about every day from at least week 2 of your cycle…. Lots of things can affect temps though.
