by jazzoboe » Nov 14, 2017 Hi, BM! I didn't see your post until just now. Yes, I have been temping this cycle. I started opks at CD 12 and got positives on CD 16 and 17, and my temp dipped a little on CD 17 and popped up on CD 18, kept climbing through CD 21 and has stayed high since. It also matches up with exactly when I thought I ovulated last month. So I think that's putting me at an 11 day LP, which is not as long as I previously thought it was but should be okay, I think. Anywho, 8dpo today and trying so hard not to obsess over symptoms, though I've given in and taken a couple wondfos (negative so far of course). My chart is still looking good (coverline is around 97.9 and my temp has been hanging at 98.4-98.6) and I don't know if I feel different from last month. My boobs are a bit tender, but nowhere near as bad as they were at this point last month. It's also kind of hard to tell because I've had some serious pain in my mid-upper back the past few days, but I suspect that is due to my mattress and not a pg symptom at all. Expecting AF Saturday, maybe Sunday. I promised myself I won't touch a FRER until Friday unless I see something on a wondfo because it's a slippery slope to wasting all my money on hpts Also, I did something probably dumb and tested with a cheapie opk today just for kicks, since I've read some people saying they had positive opks when they were pg (sometimes before a + hpt). Annnd yeah, it's definitely positive. I KNOW that doesn't necessarily mean anything at all (although I am confident I'm not having delayed ovulation because my cm is scant and creamy.) But it is keeping my hope alive enough that the bfn hpt isn't bothering me. Plus it's still super early. Also TMI -- my cervix dropped after ovulation but the past maybe 3 days has retreated back up high. Unfortunately, I wasn't monitoring close enough in past cycles to know if that's normal for me pre-AF but at least if it starts dropping it might be a warning AF is on the way. So that's me just trying to stay sane over here!
