MAYBE Preggos? Chart help please!

Hi all,

Well, I officially just decided to "wing it" this month and just let whatever happens happen, but now I'm confused. I've had pretty steady 28 day cycles for a while now and today is CD 29. I always get my period in the morning on CD 29, but today there's no sign of it so far! I'm faintly crampy but otherwise I don't feel as though I'm getting my period. Also, a couple days before, I usually have VERY watery CM. This month though, it's mostly creamy or maybe a tad watery.

Finally, my temp usually drops down quite a bit on CD 29 / 1 but this month it's still up. Can you look at my chart and tell me what you think?

THANK YOU (fingers crossed)

And no, I have not POAS yet. I'm waiting!

Woman! POAS!! Do it NOW!! You have a lot of self discipline and willpower if you have temp jump on what would normally be CD 1 and you haven't POAS!!! Craziness.

I think, based on your chart, that you have a VERY good shot this month! It looks great!

:goodluck:

It looks like you could of O'd late. Last month you O'd on CD 16 this month CD 18, I'd give it a couple days then POAS.

Godd luck!!!!

I think your chart looks awesome, and that dip on 7DPO could be a lovely implantation dip. Your April-May chart did have you start AF one day later, and your temp pattern is very similar to the last chart, so I'd give it that extra day before POAS.

That said, you have way more restraint that I do...I would have done it already! :goodluck:

Well, it's seven hours later and still absolutely no sign of AF! I don't want to get excited but I've never been even one day late ever since I was about 20! The DH and I agreed on Saturday as test day, but if I don't get it in a few days, I'll probably cave earlier.

The reason I haven't POAS yet is I was so sure last month was it and I was horribly disappointed! Don't want that again.

Do you guys want updates? Wink

I hope you have good news coming, but I understand wanting to avoid disappointments. Based on LP, I still think you have until tomorrow until you are actually late (it looks like from the last 2 charts your LP is usually 12 days?) That doesn't mean you aren't pg...just that you might not be "late" quite yet.

6 AM... No sign of AF... and check out that LOVELY temp spike!

No, I did not POAS. Still holding out!

Also, here's an overlay of my charts from last month and this month:

I'm off for a pre-breakfast run to clear my head. Lots going through it right now!

On a side note, my boobs have NEVER hurt so much during a run. Hope it's a good sign! Yahoo

You have a very nice chart! I commend you on your patience. My butt would have been down to the Dollar Tree for one of their $1 pink dye tests yesterday. Lol

So far so good today! 3:45 pm and no sign of the witch! Also starting to feel incredibly bloated. Not sure if that's a good sign or the sign of a whopper of a monthly visit. DH and I decided to test tomorrow morning, so look for an update and a pic if it's good news!

Ugh. I'm sorry. :bigarmhug: Did you temp today? If it still up, I wouldn't throw in the towel quite yet.

Sadly, I've been in your shoes...I've had a lot of times where my chart has "fooled" me. I've learned there's a certain DPO I have to wait for before I can take temps seriously. For you, it looks like getting past 12DPO is key. Give it a few more days, and if the witch doesn't show and your temp is still up, test again. There's nothing wrong with getting excited...it's half the fun of going through this! But, I know the disappointment is brutal. Hang in there.

I agree with this exactly. Don't give up just yet. It's not over till AF rears her ugly head.

Unfortunately it went down about .6-.7 degrees. Haven't seen anything yet today but I'm starting to feel as though AF is on the way. Well, there's always next month, right?
