I Am Going Crazy

So FF wanted a o date of CD 13 which would put me at 16dpo with BFN's and normal luteal length is 13-14 days. I think venus said it looks like I could have o'd on the 15th instead so I manually overrode FF and now we are on 14dpo. So I will see if I get AF today ro tomorrow. I haven't tested today, ran out of tests. And still no AF. I have creamy lotiony discharge, feels like I am getting AF, but when I go to wipe, nothing but the discharge. have had a headache for three days and counting. Very gassy, not actually passing gas, (sorry tmi) but just stomach is acting like a volcano. Other than that, absolutely nothing. For being an off month, I sure am going crazy again.

Kerylynh, I wouldn’t have overridden what FF had…you should’ve just left your chart the way it was. Remember, FF is not 100% accurate…it just gives you an estimate…if you look at my chart (home/venus) you can see that FF have my O date later than when I got my positive OPKs (but I’m not changing a thing). Bottom line, I feel if I’m pregnant I will know at some point…you just cannot be in the dark forever. Trust me I know how frustrating this can be but please don’t let it get to you so much. You know as well as I that stress can mess with your body. I do hope you get to know for sure real soon. GL!!

I honestly think it is very possible you O'd on the 13th. That really is what it looks like to me. Maybe there are more veterned FF experts that can give you there opinion. Now, the single blue dot today what does that mean?

Brenda, it really has nothing to do with being an expert in reading charts. Getting a positive OPK really doesn’t mean you O on that day. You can a__sume you will O within the 12-24 hour period. FF course tells you it’s like a snap shot you just don’t know what part of your LH surge you catch when you get that positive OPK. It could be the beginning, middle or the end. Again, FF just gives an estimate…that’s all it does.

Oh Kerilynh, how do you know you Oed when you did...do you use OPKs? I didn't see that on your chart.

 

kerilynh - February 14

no I don't use OPK's. and I just overridden the chart temporarily to see what it looked like if I really didn't o until the cd15. I must have forgotten to change it back. I believe I o'd on cd13 like FF said, but like you said, it is possible on the cd15 too and I just wanted to see what it looked like. Plus, I am not too stressed about it. Either I am going to get Af or I'm not. The dot today was because I was up most of the night so I didn't get a good read on the BBt thermometer. I didn't have more than an hour of sleep at a time last night, so I discarded today's temp.

That sucks Kerilynh! I hate nights like that, especially when i want to get a good Temp! Venus, I dont know why you are acting so offended I am just giving my opinion to her as I see it. Not trying to contradict you and you seem like you are taking it personally or something. I know about the positive OPK thing, i never said ANYTHING about OPK's. I was ONLY talking about her temps. I was under the impression that when the egg is released it causes your progestorone levels to rise, therefore giving you a higher temp~ Therefore if you have a definite spike like kerilyn, it would be safe to a__sume that you ovulated. Maybe i am wrong. And people that have been doing the temping thing for awhile would have a better understanding of it for the most part.

 

BrendaW - February 14

Okay, so Progestrone is what makes OPK's positive right? And Progestrone also makes your temp spike? THen if you progestrone is elevated enough to show positive on an OPK but doesnt necessarily mean you ovulate that day, then the same can be said for you temps? IS that what you were trying to tell me?

 

kerilynh - February 14

BrendaW, when there is a clear thermal shift you that is the sign that you ovulated. Opk's detect an an LH surge of when the egg will be released. OPK's can give you a read up to 72 hours I beleive or 48 hours before Ovulation has in fact begun. That is why I beleive I O'd on CD13 but at the same time the temp spike on CD14 could have been a fluke in my body and really not have O'd until day 15 when it drop for a day and went back up and stayed up. I don't know how long you have been trying to conceive, but after a while, unless your a fertilty doc and know everything right away, it takes awhile to figure everything out with what is what. I still don't know what what means, and by all means, don't take what I say as definative, but good luck in trying to everything out!

I was not getting offended at all…I was just stating facts. I know you didn’t mentioned anything about OPKs I was just pointing that out for Kerilynh because she believes she Oed on a certain day. But, as you can see she’s NOT using OPKs so, there isn’t any way she can know for sure she has ovulated or not. The hormone that triggers the LH surge to give positive OPK is estrogen (not progesterone) After O your body produces progesterone. And, if your temp stays elevated for at least three day in a row then you can a__sume you’ve Oed. But again, without using OPKs you cannot know for sure.

 

BrendaW - February 14

ok then you got me all mixed up with the OPK thing and worried. So Progestrone surge is AFTER O and that makes your temps go up, without the progestrone surge your temps would not go up. Cool. I think that temping is the only way to know for sure that you Ovulate. I do believe that using someother form of O test such as cm, OPK's and Ferning devices gives you a better chance to judge it before it happens.

 

VenusdiMilo - February 14

Your primary fertility signs really are BBT and CM…but even that can be off sometimes. OPKs and/or other devices are considered secondary. Personally, I think these three methods go hand-in-hand (BBT, CM & OPKs) can’t get more accurate than that.

 

BrendaW - February 14

:) I totally agree~ Not sure ;about the saliva scope anymore. It had a full ferning pattern days before i O'd. Had me tripping and i would have missed it if that is what i was relying on! Never had much luck with OPk's either and there d__n expensive!! lol I guess if I bought them on line it would probably be cheaper

 

VenusdiMilo - February 14

I’m currently using the ones from early-pregnancy-tests and they work for me. Plus, they’re cheap lol!! Never used the scope before…
