Trying to conceive

I posted my 'positive' IC OPK on the Wednesday TTC thread last night (the stick was from yesterday morning). Well, it looked positive, but my temperature has stayed the same this morning - 24 hours since the positive OPK.... and this mornings OPK was much lighter (i.e. negative). So what is that all about? . Getting worried, what if my temperature isn't going up because I don't ovulate, etc, you get the idea.
Here is my chart;

Pepperoni there looks like a very small increase on yesterday. I'd bet that tomorrows will jump up even further and keep going. You need three increases in a row for FF to agree you've ovulated although the positive opk will definately help it get to that conclusion quicker :)

Thanks PS. Yesterday was 36.11 and today was 36.12! Last week I maintained steadily at around 36.20 though so wondering if the dip over two days does mean something. I hope so. I played around with FF and even with a jump tomorrow and then staying there consistently until Monday it doesn't give me cross-hairs. Who knows! I haven't had sore boobs though... which makes me think its still a way off.

Pepperoni, I think your temp might rise tomorrow, fingers crossed for you x
I think I must be in the 2ww by now, I hope we are as we didn't dtd last night. Its CD21 and still no peak on the CBFM so I don't expect to get one, it just keeps asking me for more sticks and giving me highs!

Dolly - Reaaallly hope so. I think if I don't then I'm definitely calling the doctors and pushing them! There will be a reason why I'm getting positive OPKs then not the right BBT rise to indicate ovulation has happened. I think you are right with the monitor - I think you have ovulated and its not just getting to know your cycle. It will work so much better for you next cycle - although I'm obviously hoping you won't need it next cycle!

Pep - my rise was really slow after ov last month so fingers crossed you see a good shift tomorrow morning.
Im now using the opk's and have cracked open the new fangled CB dual hormone wotsity mabobs. As predicited a big empty "O" came up but thats good as our donor can't come (excuse the pun!) till Sunday so am hoping i will OV Sunday or Monday.

Vik - You always get a O on those on the first day... apparently its something to do with them getting to know what's normal for your body - then judging everyday from here on based on your 1st test day, if that makes sense.

Pepperoni - I'm rubbish with charts, but that opk yesteday did look like a positive to me...hopefully your temperature will go up again. I just use FF with the calendar and it confuses itself frequently so not sure it's to be totally trusted!
Dolly - fingers crossed this 2ww flies by for you
Vikster - Hope your ov times itself perfectly for you (and sorry - did laugh at the unintended pun!)
Afm, cd13 and got a negative opk yesterday (at 6.50pm - only just made it home in time!) dtd anyway. Last month I got a postive opk on cd14, but then negatives straigth afterwards so could have been a fluke. We'll see! Going to struggle to dtd as my parents arrive tomorrow until Monday, going to feel like a naughty teenager!

Hi ladies! Sorry I never do a AFM when I post in here - never remember!!
DollyP - Fingers crossed you've ovulated :)
Vikster - Hope your donor is free when you get the smiley!
LolaB - Hope todays opk is positive as expected but if not that it doesn't keep you waiting too long.
AFM (look I remembered!) - I'm cd56 and 14dpo - however my IC hpt this morning was a definate negative so I think my body is just messing me about. Grr!
10/10/2013 at 10:43
Pepperoni - I've got no clue about charts I'm afraid but fingers crossed your temp rises!
Vikster - All the best with the doner...LOL at the pun!
Dolly P - Fingers crossed for you...I shall be on my 2WW in the next few days! Hope it doesn't drag too much for you!
LolaB - Enjoy being a naughty teenager this weekend ;) and fingers crossed for OV
Purplestar - All the best for you, hope you're body starts cooperating better!
AFM - CD11 for me, DTD every other day so we avoid missing OV, will be doing another OPK test this afternoon as the one I did yesterday confused me (see other post)! I am having OV type cramps this morning though ... We DTD last night...does anybody else get cramps the morning after? I never do usually!! Sorry if TMI

Morning all! I am back from my lovely 2 week holiday, we had such a nice relaxing time but now I'm back to work which has been rubbish since I got back :-(
Hi Pepperoni - Not sure what the chart means but hope you have or do ov!
Purplestar - I hope your body stops messing you about it's so frustrating trying to work out what's going on.
DollyP - Good luck with the 2ww hope it goes quickly for you.
Vikster - Fingers crossed the weekend is a good time for you.
LolaB - Hope you get some more dtd in, it might be fun trying to be sneakly lol!
AFM I'm cd9 last cycle was back to a normal 28 days after 3 24 day cycles however I did get very light spotting for 3 days before af properly arrived, not sure if that is normal or not? I normally only get a day of spotting.
Hi to all that follows! x
10/10/2013 at 12:30
Pepperoni - fingers crossed for another rise tomorrow. Lots of dtd to cover all bases!!
DollyP - the fun part, eh? Hope you manage to keep good and distracted for the next ten days or so. FX for a nice end to it :)
Vikster - oh, I hope the timing goes perfectly for you.
LolaB - haha, should be an interesting weekend for you.
PurpleStar - hope it's just to early to tell. With long cycles can the LP be longer?
Blessed - I've heard of people getting cramps across two days. hopefully that is the case!
Lulu - I regularly/usually get 2-3 days of spotting before AF starts properly
AFM - CD19. Going by cm I think I ov'd Friday/Saturday. I hope that's the case as we dtd every day at the weekend but haven't managed since Sunday due to work. So I'm going to go with 5dpo. Think I'm going to try charting next month so that I know more precisely.

Late to this, hi ladies
Pep - your body can hear up to ovulate (positive OPK) but then not ovulate (no temp rise). It doesn't mean that anything is wrong or that you won't ovulate, just maybe that it will have another go in a few days or so. Or, maybe you will see a rise tomorrow. Either way, keep DTD if you can, and I'm sorry that it is all so confusing.
10/10/2013 at 20:49
Veecee - So far my LP has varied between 9 and 16 days but the average has been 12 days. Will just have to wait and see what my body is playing at this time round lol
10/10/2013 at 20:52
OH is out. Im watching location, location, knitting and giving myself a foot spa thing. Ahhhh. On-my-own time.

Hi ladies, it's a work day so I'm late to this,
Pep: It looked positive to me. I'm afraid I know nothing about temping so don't know what it means, but I really hope you've ovulated
Dolly: Fingers crossed it's the 2ww for you. Hope it goes quickly & you can keep yourself busy
Vikster: Hope all goes smoothly with the donor at the weekend
LolaB: Hope you get your +opk very soon & don't have to sneak around too much!!!
Purple star: Glad you included a afm as otherwise you'll just end up with just a hi from me! So frustrating but hope you get a good result soon
Blessed: Looks like a lot of us have had a confusing opk's, hope you get a good answer soon (will go & have a look at your thread now)
Lulu: I get confused with when my af starts as I often have a few days of spotting
Veecee: Fingers crossed you ov when you thought. Hope the 2ww (or what's left of it) goes quickly for you.
AFM: After confusing opk's yesterday today I've had 2 +opk so dtd tonight (& maybe in the morning if we get to bed early enough!) then on with the fun 2ww.
