I'm very frustrated this morning as AF is due in 2 days. This wasn't the best cycle to start charting as a lot was going on and I would forget about temping, or checking cm/cp or doing an opk. However I've learned and I know next cycle will be better! I've got it all scheduled out! lol I'm just frustrated that I don't know when or even if I O'd.....ugh.

Your temps jump around a lot.  How are you temping?  Orally or vaginally?  If orally, you should consider switching to vaginal temping next cycle as its more accurate.  Oral temps can be messed up with things like mouth breathing.

Orally. Mouth breathing while I sleep, or while I'm temping? I make sure to always keep my mouth close while temping and breath through  my nose. Not sure if I sleep with my mouth open though lol I will consider vaginally next cycle. Thanks!

Your temps are definately everywhere but it appears you may not of ovulated. Which may through your AF a day or two, be prepared!

Hey Gwen could you message me with directions on how to temp vaginally. I dont think I have a problem with temps but I am thinking about trying vaginally just to see if there is a difference. Any advice about how to do it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Mouth breathing while you sleep seems to affect your temp since it lowers the temp in your mouth.  It does seem to help if you can put the therm in your mouth & close it for a few minutes before actually temping.
