The cycle I conceived as rather strange. I had been charting my temps and thought I had actually stopped ovulating! I O'd on like, cd 38! (my previous cycles were around 30 days with O usually occurring around cd 20-21? I usually had a rather short luteal phase too, around 9-10 days).
My body obviously knew what it was doing, as my DH was away the week I would usually O. I had some work stress that month too, so I think that caused O to be delayed. Was excellent timing, as 2 days after DH got home, I O'ed (of course had got in a few BD sessions just before!).
I think I started taking Vitex and Vit B6 the cycle before the successful one, in effort to try to lengthen my LP? I am not sure if that is what did the trick, or it was just a matter of lots of things going right and mother nature taking over?!
I was 33 at the time (now 34), it was cycle # 7 for us and we got our first BFP. I'm now 33 weeks along and awaiting our baby!
Becca I found the above post in another thread, thought might give you some hope? x
I think my lowest ever temp was 35.8 and that was on ovulation day. I get a pretty big dip on that day. 33 seems wrong....

My lowest temp was about 35.6. Also oral temps will always be as much as 0.5-1C below your actual body temp, if you're interested.
