Temp every morning at the same time. I always set my alarm for a few hours before I normally woke up, temped and then went back to sleep. Read up on charting on fertility friend, they have great tutorials! GL,, have fun

Ok, thats out of the way. Ok OP- everything she said^^ lol I would recommend deciding now how you are going ot temp. Oraly or vaginally. IF you snore or breath through your mouth start vaginally. Try not to obsess over your chart (says the total hypocrite) and just try ot get the first month all temped out before you go evaluating it and all the signs. I recomend you chart your cm from day one. Do it everyday also near the same time but preferably an hour or so after you wake up. I dont know about anyone ese but i have a lazy cervix. If i checked it every morning first thing it would alway sbe the same, medium medium medium. lol, it needs to wake up just like me. lets see.. forgetting anything? feel free to ask questions

Thank you so much ladies... I have been consistent with my temp times and am doing them orally. I believe I O on or around cycle day 9 which is early, but just because that was true with the MC I had in Dec, doesn't mean it still holds true today. I look forward to being even more in tune with my body. Before "trying" to conceive, I thought I was super in tune, but this experience has shown me otherwise.

Using OPKs too... LOL already getting a decent line, looks like I was right I am a cycle day 10 or 12 girl... Waiting for the line to get as dark as the control... A couple more days :) This is exciting. Maybe I know my body better than I originally thought. :D

When should I notice a temp dip since my temp has been elevated since the 10th?

Here is how my chart is looking so far at 4-5 dpo... Anyone want to chime in and tell me what I am looking for or whether this looks like a promising chart?
