Well, my temp went down again today It's not looking good. Now I'm crabby.
Mary and Elizabeth, thanks! Unfortunately, I've seen some really great looking charts end in bfns and really "ugly" charts end in bfps so there's really no telling! Ugh! lol
Belinda, I think your charts looks great! I wouldn't worry about a tiny temp drop. Also, like I said above, there's really no way to know for sure just based on temps. I mean, just check out some charts on FF, there are so many "perfect" charts that end with bfps and some really crazy looking charts that result in bfps so you just never know. I know it's hard to stay positive though. For me, this 2ww has been especially hard on me since it's my first cycle back to ttc. It's really hard not to get your hopes up....you know?
AFM, So I don't know what to do about my temp for today. I woke up suddenly at 4:30 and jumped out of bed w/o thinking and ran to the restroom to pee. Afterwards I tried to go back to sleep but I tossed and turned for 15 minutes and finally gave up. I decided to take my temp at 4:45 even though I normally take it at 5:30 every morning. I knew the temp was going to be skewed due to waking up an hour early, getting out of bed and tossing and turning. Anyway, the temp was 97.47. Right afterwards, I guess I fell back asleep until my temp alarm started going off and 5:30. I took my temp again and it was 98.14. I went back to sleep again until 7:45 and took my temp again and it was 98.34. Now I don't know which temp to use! Ugh! lol. I guess I'll just have to leave today blank. I'm tempted to use the 5:30 one and then discard it tomorrow just so I'll have some kind of record....what do you ladies think?
Jina, as much as I don't LIKE the temp you took at 4:45, that's the one I'd use. Getting up to pee doesn't really affect your temp as much as you might think. The temp was still low enough to convince me that it wasn't affected that much. However, if it was me, I'd be tempted to leave it off just because I didn't like the temp, LOL. Could be an implantation dip, though! Will be interested to see what your temp does tomorrow
Mary, haha! I don't LIKE the 4:45 temp either! So, you don't think getting up to use the (COLD...lol) restroom and tossing and turning for 15 minutes really affected the temp? I guess I could always just try to pretend that it's an implantation dip...lol.
Tested this am...BFN Hoping it's just too early. My temp did go up some though. Actually, have a question about this am's temp, similar to Jina's situation. I woke up at 5:30 (usually wake at 7). I laid there for a few minutes and then worried that I wouldn't go back to sleep so took temp just in case. It was 98.72. Went back to sleep about 10-15 minutes later and then awoke to alarm at 7:00. Took it again and it was 98.64. I used the latter but now wondering if I should have used the first since it was the longest stretch?
Belinda, I tend to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom all the time. I mostly fall back asleep right away and it hasn't affected my overall temp pattern. Personally, I would go with the 7 o'clock temp since you were able to fall back asleep and stay asleep for over an hour. Plus, I don't think .08 degrees is going to really affect your chart much.
Sorry for the BFN, Belinda. Don't give up yet, there's still hope until AF shows!
Jina - I see your temp went back up today! I also see that you tested and got a BFN, waaa. Like B, though, there's still hope!
