Hi Ma, yup i take my temps within 20mins of eachther, no idea why the open circles are there, cos all the times are within 20mins... Its been a weird month temps wise, all over much lower than usual cept for the last 3 days which are heaps higher... i guess im lucky my cycles looked normal last time with the first natural cycle, with clear pre O, O and post O...samwe this time just this month low temps until now, even FF is calling it triphasic... who knows!! hopefully its good news FF says to test sunday so will do assuming Af stays away! Thanks for the welcome
HopefulMaiden - Welcome!! I stopped the pill in February so I can totally relate to the "rollercoaster" feeling. This month is the first month where my chart actually resembles a normal cycle.
I've just checked out your chart and notice you have a lot of open circles in your luteal phase. Are you taking your temp at the same time every morning? It's hard to interpret otherwise. However, your high temp today does look promising but a single temp shouldn't be analysed by itself. Your chart should be analysed as a whole pattern to gain a true understanding of what's going on.
FutureMa - Seriously... I'd poas again today, on an internet one chances are it'll make you feel a whole lot better =)
Futurema - Please - POAS again!!! I cant stand the suspense...it may still be too early but your chart looks great...
Hi Hopeful Maiden - after about 10 years + on the pill, I stopped it about April last year, and I feel that my cycles only settled down about 4 months ago..it's crazy. I don't think I will ever go on the pill again...12 months later ttc , I don't think I will need to LOL!
Hey everyone - Happy Friday - clomid is making my pre- O temps go nuts...hope everyone is fine
HopefulM: I was on the pill for 17 years - came off last June just before a cone biopsy. We didn't try that cycle (for obvious reasons!!) but I was UTD the next cycle. Didn't end well, but since then we've definitely had a fert egg 5 times...! So it's very different for different people and it's very possible to get UTD v fast In some ways the pill helps, as it's tricking the body into thinking its pregnant while you're on it, and there's a theory that for some people at least it helps them get UTD afterwards.
afm... I think my OB is trying to poison me. I'm suffering from the normal preg constipation issue and she's suggested Epsom Salts. I've waited til the weekend to try them in case of extreme effects (not good at work - I'm a swim teacher now) ond *dear god* they're disgusting. Really utterly gag-inducingly foul. The taste and sensation in my mouth is still there after half an hour and I think I might which worries me as it'll put it all back in my mouth!
Yup... only isn't violent enough to describe it You know when you think your toenails are going to come up too? And you're left retching with *huge* spasms afterwards...?
I think I need to find another "safe" cure... I think she said movicol was ok too...
Oh hugs Cat! That sounds horrible!
cat, i dont envy you... thanks for posting tho its good to hear others experiences... so sorry to hear of your losses.
Weird how much coming off the pill can convince you of UTD cruel also..
for this cycle, got some weird symptoms which i know are also pregnancy but dotn want o get my hopes up... im officially late tomorrow assuming my last 2 cycles are a pattern of course!
Anyone else felt twinges in their bellies not really cramps but pulling kinda feeling? Very differnt from AF cramps... happy to say so far no sign of her
im scared that just cos ive had a predictable pattern thus far that itll all go out the window and it wont be a baby i hear ladies who take ages to get into a pattern after the pill, but mine went right into one based on last 2 cycles....
Will POAS tomorrow as FF suggests assuming im AF free and my temps high again Good luck to anyone else in the same boat!!
Good luck to you
