my temp is still up?

I'm very confused. AF showed yesterday (red) then was gone for the rest of the day. Today I had a temp rise???? and i still have some spotting but no cramps. I took a test just in case and it was a BFN but i'm super confused. It looks like I ovulated by my chart but arent' u supposed to get cramps when you have AF after you O? I have had sore bbs so I thought i would have a strong period. Not that i like the pain but I was excited that my body was working... I also had a short LP only 10 days Sad

Hmmm interesting. I noticed you put "Medium Flow" on your chart for today, does that mean you have flow again and not just spotting?

There are two possibilities:
1) You're having implantation, which would explain the temp rise (which happens after), and it would still be too early for a BFP. Or....
2) It's just a lighter period and today's high temp was a fluke.

KUP! Smile

sorry that was a goof. i changed both days to spotting since i never really got my cycle. Now I'm confused as to weather or not i should start clomid tomorrow. dr said to start on the 3rd day of bleeding and that bleeding is the 1st day you see blood. so does that count with spotting?

Ooohhhh..... interesting. I'll be stalking.

I would call the DR for advice before starting clomid.....

The instructions I've gotten is that bleeding is when you see a sustained flow of red...as in needing a pad. Until you have a real flow, you haven't had day one. I personally would be on the phone with the Dr and explaining the situation and asking for advice. If you are not sure if you've really had AF, I would NOT take the clomid. It is not safe in pregnancy! Just my opinion, and I know you don't want to miss a cycle, but if there is any question about whether you could be pg, it would be better to lose a cycle than take the chance on the negative fetal effects.

ok if AF doesn't pick up overnight or if my temp stays up I'll call tomorrow before starting clomid. I agree... it's not worth the risk! thanks ladies!

ok so i called the dr this morning and the nurse said to take the clomid since i'm supposed to consider this my period even tho i'm still spotting on day 3. I decided not to take it and to wait to see if AF picked up tonight. then...

OMG good thing i didnt' take it yet! the nurse just called me back and said that she talked with another dr there and since my dr isn't in yet she said to wait for the 1st day of full flow! ahhhhhhhh! I told her i wouldn't even be worried about it but since i did ovulate (i can tell from my chart) i'm worried i could be pg and spotting from that. I spotted for 2 weeks when i was pg with alyssa so you never know. she's waiting till this afternoon when my dr gets in and she will get back to me. even if he says to take it tho i'm gonna wait till AF flows full force. it's just not worth it.

I think you are making the right decision. I came on this morning to see where your temps where. Thinking of you!

sorry it's been so hectic i didn't update! Yes I started a light flow yesterday so I took the clomid. My temp was still up but i was clotting and all so i figured there is a good chance i'm not pg. I took 3 tests too with FMU and they were all BFN so I'm pretty sure it's over. I'm still bleeding today and didn't temp because with the clomid i know it will be up and I had to pee at 5am LOL so today is off. I manipulated my chart to show that I had a light flow 2 days before today so i could be on day 4 today which is what i'm on with clomid so i don't get screwed up LOL. they told me to take it and to count yesterday as day 3 so i'm all caught up Smile
