My chart has little white dots on some temperatures. Not sure you all can see it, but do you know what the heck it means?
Also... got a different brand OPK and started testing early because I was feeling some weird cramping. Here are the past 2 days of OPKs. Any thoughts? And I haven't been able to really check CM because after Bd'ing I use the instead cup (I hate mess).
The first two are yesterday afternoon.
This one is the afternoon before...
If you look at those and my temps, what do you guys think?
I just finally found this....
Open Circles and Dots:
If something in the data indicates that the temperature may be slightly inaccurate (either by events selected in the Special data area or by a time difference larger than normal), the temperature is plotted using a circle instead of a dot. Please note that these points do not need to be discarded. The circle will just indicate to the reader areas on the chart where the data may be less accurate.
I guess they think something is off....?
No biggie about the open circles, it just means those temps could be less accurate, but not necessarily. Now, if you took your temp say two hours before your normal temping time, then yes, that temp might be a little off. But it's the overall pattern of temps over a long period of time that matters more.
As for the opks, I don't "think" you've had a positive opk yet (though it's hard to tell for sure since the pics are a bit blurry), but I'd say you're getting close.
Have you taken any opk's today? I had one that was almost pos on cycle day 8 (looked a lot like your first pic). Got all excited at maybe o'ing early. But then they lightened up again before finally getting a blazing pos on cycle day 14. And since my temp jumped today it looks like I indeed did O on day 15. I'll be watching your temps the next few days!
Did you retest? From your chart, i'm guessing O will be very soon!
I had one lighter and one the same shade of darkness. Today I am very cramps and had two episodes of cm that I could literally stretch in my fingers. DH mustered up the energy for BDing tonight and I am hoping for a repeat tomorrow night.
Belinda- tell me why you think I will o soon? I don't fully understand my chart yet.
Yay for fertile CM and a successful BD!! It looks like you're getting pretty close to O time! How many days of fertile CM do you normally get?
