Martha, if it's your first month temping, what makes you think that it's so high and not just normal for you? What temps are you getting exactly (just to be clear)?

Martha......my temps are the same as yours, actually usually higher. I haven't bled a normal af since January 5th... spotted in Feb. & March. -- but I still tested negative last week. My tems are 'usually' below 97.6, though.

Your lookin' pretty good...from what I can tell. Relax.

Charting your temps is always harrowing for the first month. It is where we learn about our bodies and unexpected things can pop up. I freaked out my first month b/c i did not O until cd18! After six months of temping i have found that that is normal for me. We are all different and you may just normally have high temps. There's nothing wrong with that. Also i see that your last 3 temps have open circle, was that b/c youwere sleep deprived or temped later than usual? Not sleeping through the night, and/or taking your temp much ater than usual would cause higher temps. So does drinking alcohol the night before. Also your other really high temps were during AF that's normal too. Many women find that their temps are high while they are still bleeding. The first month is the learning stage, don't get all worked up, it will take a few months for you to really understand what your body is doing. Hopoefully you'll get pregnant in the mean time!! Good luck!

martha, your temps look normal to me, try to relax....also about the opk, if your cycle is normally 27 days, you should ovulate around cd 13 which means you should get a + opk around cd 11 or 12...just hang in there, opks can be frustrating...and i would suggest doing two a day, maybe at 2pm and 8 pm so that you won't miss your surge. goodluck!

thanks a lot ladies...I purchased many OPKs on line so I can afford to do as many as required. So far I tired 2 a day at 12pm and 6pm....is that ok? I know that since it is only my cd8, it is only showing a very light line (therefore-), but I am so paranoid to lose my surge....

Martha- no one knows what normal is for you....but these are definately not really high. They are within a very normal range. If you had several months of temps in the 97's then they might seem high, but if this is really your first month then I wouldn't worry about it at all. Usually it takes a few months of temping to find out your own body's normal pattern! Relax and try to think of this month as a learning experience! I think 2 times a day is good for OPK's.....like mrose said- you should get a positive till like cd 11 or 12.....just keep taking 2 tests a day and you should probably catch your surge. Good luck- just try to take it easy!

danimarie: I am honestly trying to be sooo positive:) It is hard though...the waiting is killing me....but the outcome is so rewarding:) I love babies so much!!!:)

Hi Martha. I had very light lines and then got 2 days of lines about half as light as the control, then got my positive, then got no line at all. When you get lines about half as dark as the control, go ahead and bd to be sure if you can talk him into it. It's long, but I just posted details on another thread... I'm going to go copy it and paste it here for you as it's a good summary of all I've figured out so far.

OPK's as they work for me: Last cycle I never got a +, just several days of lines of various shades lighter than the control line. This cycle I bought dollar tree opk's. CD 3- no line. CD 6- so slight it all most wasn't there. CD 8,9,10-extremely faint. CD 11-a bit under half color. CD 12-darker than day before but not positive. CD 13- 1st am p darned near positive in 10 minutes (left for work and left it at home), 1:30pm +, 5:30pm neg, 11:30 pm (and better urine hold than the 5:30 one) more neg than the 5:30. I looked at the 1st am one when I got home and it was more positive than the 1:30 ever got, so I'll absolutely keep them all regardless of the directions; the others I used (which I also still have) never darkened that way. CD 14- 1st am p, extremely neg. Those results: 3 darkest lines on cd's 11, 12, &13, and much lighter than cd 11 or 12 by the evening of the 13th, put my surge on those days (it lasts 40 to 50 hours). We're supposed to O about 36 hours after the surge starts, so if I'm not pg this cycle (and I tried, I tried!!) I'll be using 3 to 4 opk's daily next cycle to try to zoom in on the surge hours a little bit better because by the time I got the + I think I O'd within hours and we need the swimmers the 2 to 3 days BEFORE O and the day of O. I used cp, cm, and bbt, and O feelings to try to pinpoint my O more precisely. Again, I'll be much more thorough next cycle and check several times daily. I got my +opk at 1:30, dh got home late in the evening (and we did bd), but I had O twinges beginning at 2:30 (and those can apparently happen before, during, or more likely after O), my cervix was lower by 8pm the following evening (cd14), and my temp began to go up on CD15. All that said, I think if I'd ignored those 2 nice lines that weren't +, I'd have completely missed by best bd days, which were CD 11 & 12 (and the am of CD 13, but there just isn't time before work usually, so I missed that am opportunity.) If I were just going by bbt, I'd have been days off. I don't have enough cm to rely on it, but I did buy a speculum and convince dh to a__sist me in getting digital pix of my cervix so I can observe the cm there. It's also easy to tell position in the pix. CM was good on cd11, perfect on cd12, and I didn't check on cd13 because I just wanted swimmers now and was afraid to disturb any that might still be in the mucus in case they could still make it through. Of all the signs to watch, the one that works best for me is CP. The day I O and the day before I O, I can't reach it, and it's enough different that dh even has it figured out and can tell too. The opk's and temps just confirmed that for me. I'll do them again, and more, next cycle to be sure, but I've reached the end of the google search on every key word I could think of related to ovulation and that's the best conclusion I can reach at this time (still looking of course.) I hope that helps.

sososleepy: then in that case all you have to do is to bd on cd10 and 12...that shoudl do it...of course just ot make sure I would add cd 8 and 14...
