Hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful Sunday, is do sunny here in Melbourne!
I have some questions for you experienced charters!
Ok, firstly, my basal temp seems very low - ranging 35.4 to 35.9.. Anyone else low like that, does it mean anything? Also I am on my 4th day of positive opk do I am hoping I get some higher temps soon.. 4 days of positive is that a bit weird?
My cycles seem to gradually get longer and longer.. The last one was 62, prior to that 34 and 33.. So maybe I have a longer luteal phase.. Not sure..
If you are still with me, thank you!! My last question is for recommendations for good accurate basal thermometers? I have one but it seems to vary a bit so am after one that might be more consistent.
Thanks heaps xx
I can't really help much with the temps but I can tell you that I got my therm from chemist warehouse it was about $20 and it has a pink tip the packaging says 'ovulation thermometer' and so far I've found it to be really good
@Vegielove - not sure if the lower temps mean anything.....you might find a difference with a new thermometer - one of the ladies on here had higher recorded temps once she changed.
Can you post a pic of your opks? This cycle I've had two positives, pretty sure tomorrow's will be neg. It just might be that you have a longer surge.
Hope that helps!
Ooh and I'm the same as Joeeee - I bought my thermometer at....Good Price Chemist - under $20 and it had "ovulation thermometer" written on it....brand is bodicheck. I think some of the ladies on here have bought theirs online.
Hey Joeee, sensational weekend in Melby wasn't it! Hope you had a beautiful walk, thanks for the tip on the bbt, will check it out.. Mine was about $5 on eBay and I think in this case you get what you pay for....
Hi Littleduck I just had a naughty typo with your name! Lol! I have used clear blue and cheapie sticks, will post a couple of pics and my chart so far I am hoping for a neg and higher temp tomorrow.. Just trying to see what my cycles are like and hoping for some normalcy after discovering that every few months I seem to skip a period! Here goes.. First attempt at uploading pics:
Yes the first time I saw it I was so excited for the rest of the day! I got a pack of 20 for about $60 online.. Will use them just here and there to verify the cheapies until I get to know my cycles more but I agree the cheapies do seem to work well, today's cheapie actually would be read as neg as the test line was fainter than control line, but I still got a smiley face.. The pic is from tests yesterday or Friday.
@Vegielove I used to have low temps like that until I changed thermometer.
Afm my crosshairs have gone dotted. About time as I'm cd80/21dpo it's the longest I've kept my crosshairs but I don't think I ovulated. I've already accepted that fact so I won't be devastated when ff removes them.
Hi all is it normal for temp to spike in luteal phase I did wake up a few times last night and took temp an hour earlier so it may not be exact.. Would this be what caused it?
