Hi all -- I am 36 and desperate!! I have a chart that from FF -- not sure what to think -- am I out?? Currently I am 9dpo - but my temp dropped today - still above cover line -- I think I am triphasic -- help? fertilityfriend.com/home/1e6433

Kind of looks triphasic but it's difficult to tell (4dpo could be an implantation dip). I wouldn't obsess too much about the drop, your temps are rising overall so that's a good sign. Fingers crossed it'll keep going that way for the next few days. When is af due? Let us know how you get on.

Hey...is this your first month charting? This is my first month charting...here's my chart...fertilityfriend.com/home/1e4ff4......my chart is triphasic...look at mine and compare it to yours. What happened with mine is that on cd 18 it said I o'd then FF suddenly recognized that I went triphasic on 9dpo (past o day cd18) and it changed my o' day to cd12...so now I'm supposedly 17dpo...so I'm not sure what to think either....I think that you're going to have to do this for a few months so that FF can get to know your body better and give you more accurate info. I understand desperation..I think most of us are...just try and stay centered...and give yourself a few more months to chart. I'm hoping all the best for you sweetie!

I have a question about your chart. Are the dates off? It looks like the chart started Dec. 7 and the latest date is Dec.31st. Am I confused? Or is there a newer chart that I can't see? I think it's looking ok yet, but give fertility friend a chance to learn your cycles. When I first started tracking mine it kept switching my o date all over the place. Try to relax about it. (Gee, I wish I could take my own advice, lol)

Tonigirl -- I looked at your chart -- you are def triphasic -- give it a few days -- have you considered a Beta test? how long are your cycles typically? needababytaylor - (Blush) yes, my dates are wrong but by the time I figured it out I didn't want to go back and change it and screw it all up!! hehe -- the DATES are correct and so is the info -- but the month is off - hehe !!

Hey Girlgonefishing...are you from Minnesota? That sounds like the name of a person from the Land of 10,000 lakes!LOL! Actually, I'm in Minnesota...but originally from AZ...so fishing isn't something we did very often!LOL! Okay...you asked me if I've had a beta...what is a beta? I'm still so knew to all this as well. I've been TTC since May when I went of b/c. I got pregnant right off the bat in June and m/c'd in July. Since then nothing. I'll be 29 next July and I'm concerned that maybe something's wrong. I'm gonna go see a doctor next Friday to just talk about what's going on in my body. I have a history of ovarian cysts (the kind that grow and grow, don't pop and need to eventually be drained for fear it will pop and take the entire ovary with it). I have really heavy periods too...I actually had to have a blood transfusion because my period was so heavy one month. So...I don't know what to think about this month. Last month I was 3 days late and had odd off and on spotting throughout the month. This month has seemed more normal though. I'd say I'm usually 28-30 days with the occasional 31 in there. If I were to go by the original day that FF said I o'd then I wouldn't be considered late until Monday...so I think I'll just wait it out...if I can...and test Monday...a__suming AF doesn't show her ugly face first!LOL!

I am 9 dpo and had the same type of drop as you! Here is my chart: fertilityfriend.com/home/nikki44481 I've been cramping but af hasn't showed. We'll see!

Tonigirl -- Nah -- from IL -- but we are stationed in Germnay :) Beta is a blood test that could let you know if your serum (blood) hcg is rising. We have been ttc since August where I had a "chemical" pregnancy - -the fertilized egg just didn't stick around. I was shocked. My AF's run anywhere from 30 - 34 days, but in the last 6 months have been as long as 35 & 44 days! I saw a Dr who told me all my bloodwork for thyroid, hormones and stuff was great -- I tested at day 8 -- of course it was BFN...I want to test again, but feel that this month was a bust as I am already down another 0.1 this morning -- aarrgghh! Still above cover line though -- maybe there is hope yet for this cycle! BABY DUST!

babe #2 - I looked at your chart and WHOAH!! It does look similar!! Looks like we're both 10 dpo today!! I dropped another 0.1 today - but I am still above my coverline, so I am not sure if I am out yet. How long have you been ttc? When do you plan to test? Baby Dust!!!!

what does triphasic mean?

 

Tonigirl - February 1

Hi Kelbabe...here is a direct quote from Fertiliy Friend.com..."A triphasic chart shows three levels of temperatures: pre-ovulation, post-ovulation, and then a second rise around 7-10 days after ovulation. Some women with charts that show this pattern turn out to be pregnant. But many do not. Likewise, your chart does not need to show this kind of pattern for you to be pregnant. Whether or not you are pregnant, progesterone, the hormone responsible for raising your temperature after ovulation, generally peaks in the middle of your luteal phase and this can cause this kind of pattern whether or not you are pregnant. ...Hope that helps.

Girl....35-44 DAYS!!!?!?!?! WHAT!?!?! Wow, that would be a pain in the a__s for sure! Isn't it so frustrating when you go to the doctor and you're like, "What's going on with my body?" and they tell you "LOOKS GREAT! NOTHING WRONG!" So, then why do our bodies act so strange sometimes. So, you are 10dpo today or 11dpo today...if you're in Germany what's the time diff from Germany to IL? If I go by my original FF chart (before FF re-evaluated it) I'd be 12dpo today..so we're really close in that respect...Babe#2 is as well...so hopefully we all get our BFP'S! Niki how are you doing today? I'll prob see you on our other thread!

 

girlgonefishing - February 1

Tonigirl - Yah! It's a pain -- espcially when my RE was a woman -- my 44 day was my chemical pregnancy -- makes it hard to know when to do a pregnancy test!! I am still above coverline -- but dropped 0.1 this morning (BTW -- I am 7 hours into the future from IL) --how do I know if that knocks me out for this month ?? Am I still in the "maybe" category??? FF never marked my chart as triphasic - but when I look at it I think I see it is -- also -- no implantation dip is also what FF is telling me---I am praying -- BabyDust!! When are you going to test?? I thought about either Monday OR if my temp spikes back up.

have you compared your chart to others in the gallery? You can choose several categories to compare your chart. You can choose charts that show pregnancy with long cyces and the same post o temps. This will show you just how many women really do have dips in their temps...but are still pg. Check it out. Oh, and LOL!!! 7 hours in the future! So, what are the lottery numbers!?!?! Help a sista out!
