@cvbee – are you using fertility friend? I don’t know if this applies to you, but I  thought I ovulated last week and was so disappointed when the chart did not give me crosshairs the next day. It turns out, even though I ovulated on the friday, it takes 3 days of sustained temps in order for them to count the day as ovulating (so, by the time it told me I ovulated I was 3 DPO). Not sure if that helps you, but there is still hope that you ovulated yesterday if today’s temp was higher! Fingers crossed for you πŸ™‚

I never ended up trying it and don’t necessarily recommend it, but I did read up on taking soy isolflavones (sp?) to initiate ovulation… it’s supposed to be nature’s chlomid or something? 

I was/am one of those women with irregular cycles and sometimes don’t ovulate until CD20-30 (while other times I O pretty much right on time). I was going to try taking soy if I had difficulty getting pregnant, but I didn’t end up needing to.

@cvbee: Yay!  

I wanted to say something about soy real quick.  I wouldn’t just start taking it.  Soy mimics estrogen in the body, so it can actually interfere with normal hormone processes.  I imagine for some people it might be in a helpful way, but I wouldn’t take more without talking to a doctor.  I’ve actually cut out almost all soy from my diet.

Isn’t sex guilt the worst?  I had the same thing happen.  I didn’t get a temp rise when I thought and Darling Husband had one 2 day gap, the rest were all every other day.  But that was the important one!  Oh well….let it go…  See my mantra of the month in the TWW thread: No Guilt!

@cvbee: I agree with Mrs Green Grass to talk to your doctor first, and do a lot of research. It’s also not just the soy that you can eat, like soy food products, but it’s super high levels of soy (pills) and you have to take them on certain days of your cycle, like 3-7 or something. You can’t just start taking it. That’s why I said I don’t necessarily recommend it… I probably would have wussed out because I just get worried about messing up my already messed up cycles. But I hate waiting to O when you have long cycles. Super glad you got your temp shift though, congrats!!!

I am glad you got your O rise.  I am in the same boat right now.  This is my 2nd month charting without bc.  First month was textbook perfect.  This month is all over the place.  I am currently on day 21 without a temp rise yet.  However I feel it coming soon.  Either tomorrow or Sunday is my guess.  Which is perfect for me because my hubby was away on travel and obviously no time for BDing. I was on edge every time I took my temp this week because if it went up there was pretty much 0% chance.  Thankfully he comes back today so maybe our hopes of this month arn’t out the window.  Fingers crossed  πŸ™‚

@cvbee:  haha  Well the hubby came home last night and no spike yet.  I am thinking tomorrow which would be perfect.  Fingers crossed.  How great would it be with we both conceived this month.   I’m hopeful for the both of us.  πŸ™‚

@cvbee:LOL. I’m too type A for it, too.

I’m “almost finished” with my miscarriage, according the blood levels at the doctor, but still temping and what not… today I have EWCM. Um, body, what are you DOING?

@Jane_Doe:I agree–unfortunately you can mostly tell if you O by the data the few days *after* in other words, too late for the BD this cycle. I wish there was a better way to know before hand.

Still waiting. I’m CD 17. And I can tell I’m close to O, maybe tomorrow or Saturday… Dumb long cycles!

How about you ladies?
