Erratic Everything

Okay, I have NO IDEA what’s going on with my body this cycle. My last couple charts were looking better, but this one is all over the place. It doesn’t help that I haven’t been consistently temping either though.
Days 2-5 I didn’t temp b/c my thermometer was broken so I had to buy a new one (plus days 4-5 we were camping and I knew my temps would be way off anyway). 
Days 8-10 – I have NO idea why those temps would be high like that??? Not normal for me.
Days 11-12 was the weekend of our housewarming party – drinking + waking up late = I didn’t even bother temping those mornings. Didn’t think it was a huge deal b/c I usually ovulate much later in my cycle.
Days 17-18 I woke up late and temped 1 hr and 2 hrs late (I normally temp at 5:30), so I’m thinking maybe that’s why the temps were randomly high again?? I “discarded” them for that reason.
On CD18 I think I got a positive OPK… but I dunno, those damn lines are hard to judge. If so, I THINK I possibly ovulated CD19, but I guess I’ll just have to wait a few days to see what my temps do. I have no idea where to draw a coverline this cycle, so I guess I’ll just wait and see what FertilityFriend does.

If my temps stay high and it shows an O day, I’ll make an appointment to get my progesterone level checked again at 7dpo. The earliest I’ve O’d was CD22 – and I’m thinking this MIGHT be CD19, but we’ll see.

I just wish I could have a night of drunken indiscretion with my husband and get accidentally KU like normal people.


  1. Well go home and have your drunken night if indiscretion tonight! hahaha. Fingers crossed that you O'ed. But keep up the BD and the other version of "O" until you know for sure what's going on with your chart.

  2. You might want to invest in the digital OPKs. I know they are more expensive, but you can get 20 off of ebay for about $20 and that's a great deal! If you have an idea of what day you O around, you only have to use a few per cycle so they'll last you a while. Keep BDing and hopefully your chart will even out soon.

  3. Yeah – the problem is that I've O'd between CD22 and CD53 in the last three cycles, so it's pretty much cost prohibitive to buy the digital ones until my cycle evens out. Grr!

  4. Hahaha, I had to laugh at the last line. I always say that. Why can't we just be like all of our other friends and get pregnant after drunken sex?! I wish it worked that way. 🙁 I'm sorry your cycle is so wacky. I've had cycles like this before and it drives me insane. It looks like you probably ovulated on Sunday, but give it a few days. FF should straighten itself out.

  5. AAHHH! To go back to the good old days!!

  6. I know how frustrating charting can be…its like a piece of paper is staring at you saying "Your body is not cooperating"!!!

  7. my temps spiked on my clomid days, too. hmmm, when charting just makes things more confusing! Hopefully today's spike is THE one and you can go get your levels checked!

  8. Jill – I didn't even think about that, but I was having hot flashes at night by those last couple of Clomid days…maybe that accounts for the crazy spike on CD8-9. Thanks for the suggestion!!
