I decided to temp this cycle even tho I originally wasn't going to since it tends to drive me slowly crazy. But now I'm glad I did I forgot how satisfying it is to get CH! I wanted confirmation that I was Oing besides the OPK. Side note I was pretty sure from my O pain that I usually Od the same day I get my first + OPK and from temping it appears I do! Most OPKs say you will O 24 hours later right? I cant remember if I was this way before or not. We are leaving on vacay at the end of this week so I will be getting home right around 10 dpo. Hopefully that keeps my mind off the 2ww some. I even had EWCM this month the last two months I didnt just watery was my fertile. I even Od a day earlier than normal! I am wondering if my new regimine of EPO, vitex and maca root helped!
Yay for crosshairs! I always liked to temp with OPK's too...it is satisfying to get those CH's. Looks like you have great BD timing too.
Your OPK results would definitely be misleading without the temps...I usually found I O'd the day after my +OPK, I also only had one day of positives. I would guess your O day a day late from your OPK results. But your temps seem to clearly confirm an O rise the day after your first OPK with O being the same day as your first +OPK. Anyway, hope the 2WW goes quickly for you with a lovely BFP at the end.
What will be your EDD if you are successful this cycle?
Ooooh exciting! I usually don't temp either because it reminds me first thing in the morning, every single morning, that I am TTC and it makes me nuts, but I remember when I was temping it was extremely satisfying to have FF confirm the day I thought I O'ed. Your timing looks great too. Good luck to you, and hope to see a BFP next week!

Yay for crosshairs! I'm having fun with temping so far. It's only my 2nd temping cycle though. That with the opks make me feel like I'm a scientist. I try to explain it to DH and he gets so lost. Haha.
You do look like you had good timing. Maybe you O'd at like midnight of CD13...I think I did that this cycle. Because my 2nd day of positives were only positive in the morning. And it was positive but not quite as dark as the day before. I read that you can have LH in your system for a couple hours after ovulation. I kind of wish FF would let you input 2 opk results a day. Or would that make us all that much crazier?
Hope you caught that eggie!!!!!!
