What am I actually looking out for when I temp? What time in the cycle do you expect it to go up/down? I have finally managed to get into a routine of temping and have about 10 days of temperatures. Not long enough to see much I realsie but it would be nice to know what I'm looking for as I build up the chart.

When your temp rises consistantly for three consecutive days your temp app will prob be confident in saying ovulation has occurred and give you crosshairs. If your temp beyond ovulation stays above crosshairs that's a good sign that AF is staying away but if it begins to dip again towards the end of the 2ww (days 10- 14 after ovulation) it prob means AF is on its way - hope that helps :)

I can highly recommend Fertility Friend website for learning about temping. I found I learnt from their tutorials and from looking at LOTS of other people's charts. Hope it brings you results :)

Ok, thanks that is helpful. I'm using fertility friend so will the cross hairs appear automatically? Today was my third concecutive rise. ( though nothing on opks)

FF, will plot the cross hairs automatically.
The opk thing may confuse it though, if you don't get a cross hair in the next couple of days and don't have a +ive opk it may be worth deleting them from your data.

Thanks BG, I haven't added any info other than the temperature & when my period started. Still working out how you add stuff so I'm taking it one step at a time.
