Just been reminded why I hate temping...

I really don't need anything else to fret about. It's been a long 5 months. Anyway...so as you can see from my chart I had a nice dip cd15 and got a bfp OPK on cd 16&17. From past experience and temping last cycle I O the same day as my first positive OPK. I had lots of O pain like normal for me on cd 16 as well. However my temps aren't jumping up. I put in some fake temps akin to the ones I've been getting (bc I have an obsession problem lol and always monkey with my chart) and as I thought FF is being a witch and not giving me my crosshairs!!! At the beginning of this cycle I was taking my temp an hour or so later as school has started back now and I have to get up earlier. So I tried discarding the two highest temps there and still no dice. I have been feeling icky from a cold or allergies lately and I know I was mouth breathing this morning but usually it doesn't make that big a difference in my charts. Sooo what do you all think did I O? We dtd again last night and will keep at it every other day for a bit longer I guess. Also I'm supposed to go get my progesterone tested Monday to see if it indicated Oing should I wait another day or so do you think?

I suck at charts because I never have charted but according to your info I would think you O'd CD16 or 17. If you had the O pains and usually O the same day you get a positive I would go by that. You know how you feel and I would trust that more than FF. It does seem to do some weird things sometimes. When I "charted" without temps I noticed that even if I got a positive OPK and had all the signs and put that info in it still wouldn't say I O'd so I always had to override it. Maybe that's just because I didn't temp though since that's pretty much the whole point of charting. I don't know. I mostly did it for the ticker. Lol.

I would definitely trust your body. I've had a progesterone draw as early as 5DPO before and it was pretty high then and I've had one has late as 8DPO. They're usually pretty comparable. It seems like if you did one Monday it'd be either 6 or 4DPO so you'd probably be okay but waiting until Tuesday won't hurt either. I would just base it on when you feel best that you O'd.

I'm having my progesterone draw Tuesday! Maybe we should get them done on the same day for good luck. Lol. I highly doubt I O'd since the doc couldn't tell and it would have been awful early to O when he thought I may have on fertility drugs. I guess we'll see though. I'm keeping fingers crossed for you sweetie! I hope you had a good super O and caught that eggie!

It looks like a rise to me! I don't care what FF says, I see a rise, hahaha. I'd say if you got +OPK's you probably O'ed.

Yeah I think FF can suck an egg too! However getting the crosshairs last month to confirm I Od when I thought I did was such such a satisfied feeling. Err. I think I had a rise too but apparently it isn't a good enough one for them. Im rather sure I Od on cd 16.

Ok Leah I'll go Tuesday with you! I can use all the luck I can get!! How long does it take to get your results? Mine will probably take longer them being them, they aren't speedy by any means. And FF never gives me crosshairs for positive OPKs either even when I wasn't temping. I would override too.
