Help with my chart please?!

My Chart Here


I am Jessica. I am still nursing my 10 month old baby boy. I got a first PP Menses in July (the beginning of this chart) and 3 times it has predicted ovulation and then took it back! We would really like to try for a boy this time around and I seem to ALWAYS have EWCM. I have read TCOYF cover to cover and I'm still at a loss. I know I'm missing some days - DH and I were feeling discouraged and stopped charting for almost a week. The other inconsistency is that my temp time is not always the same OR after 3 consecutive hours of sleep but I have a baby boy with chronic ear infections, so we are as consistent as possible.

TIA

Im sorry your chart looks to me like an annovulatory so far :( You should really temp every morning at the same time before even getting out of bed! I know it challenging sometimes but it is gonna give you some idea, right now a lot of informations are missing :( Sorry, good luck!

Ya, that's definitely an anovulatory chart...  Even if a few temps were off due to schedule etc.. a cycle that long is almost always without ovulation. Good luck to you hun!

I do temp every morning before getting out of bed. It's the time that is wonky! Sometimes we are up for the day at 5am and sometimes not until 9. And also sometimes Kol sleeps through the night and others he is awake every 2-2 1/2 hours.

I don't know what the best case senario is for temping there. Any advice?

Should I just set an alarm and temp every morning at 5, regardless of how long I've been sleeping?

You could try setting your alarm at 5 & temping regardless & see what happens.

tcoyf.com will adjust your temps to your standard waking time, too.  I prefer to not have too many mornings like that because I wonder if it adjusts accurately for me.  But it might be worth doing that, too, for you.  I know its hard to temp at the same time when you have a nursing baby who needs you.  Or any baby/child who needs you!

I know some women in your case just chart their CM & CP.  Of course, then you can't confirm ovulation happened.

It does look annovulatory so far.  But I wonder what you would see if you put your temps into tcoyf.com & let it adjust to whatever your standard waking time is.

 Welcome to the group! I hope you get the help and advice you are looking for and get a BFP soon!

I agree it looks annov.  It might take until you are done weaning and for some women a while after that before you start ovulating.  But you could ovulate any time before that.  :/  Charting and BFing is hard, stick with it though!
