BBT Chart + opk.. Ovulation?! Nyxie Lynn Carnahan Due January 19; 17 kids; Rochester, New York 977 posts

I am 2w1d past MC, and trying to track O so hubby and I can pinpoint it next cycle to TTC. I haven't charted or used OPKs before now, so they are both slightly confusing to me. Can someone look at my chart as well as my OPKs and tell me if I have ovulated yet, or if I will soon??

Your temps are all over the place. Are you for sure taking your temp as soon as you wake up, before your feet hit the floor, no water etc?



Your OPKs are all over the place too. When was your last negative HPT? You may still be showing hormones from the pregnancy.

Yep. I don't even roll over. I sleep with my thermometer under my pillow to make it simple. I am on anti biotics for a uterine infection, though, and my temps are all in the morning before I take my meds so maybe that could have something to do with it?



I took a HPT 3 days prior to the first OPK and it was -

Also, the discarded temps in my chart are all the ones from before I started the antibiotics. If that makes a difference.

Are your cycles normally regular? I don't think antibiotics would have anything to do with it but you don't want to take them before temping if you take them with water. Your hormones may just be crazy still. Mine are and it's been almost 7 weeks and I have yet to ovulate.

They aren't exactly 28 days but they're usually between 26 and 28 every month.

Just keep going with it. It sounds like you've read up on how to do it and you're doing it right. I know so very well the urge to get pregnant right away after a miscarriage but it makes cycles so unpredictable. So don't stress out if you aren't able to chart ovulation in this cycle. Your next one should be a bit less crazy.

thanks *hug* It is very frustrating. We wanted to TTC again right away but decided to wait until my infection clears so we don't lose another one. So hopefully it will be gone soon and I can pinpoint ovulation next cycle. :/

We never let a cycle go by without at least trying, even though for us the odds are very, very low. We really shouldn't even be trying at all since I won't be having surgery until April which will prevent another loss due to incompetent cervix. After that though we'll be able to legitimately try, which for us means an embryo transfer.
