Hello all,

I had a quick scan through but couldn't see any active ish threads. Just wanting to get a discussion going so we can help, cast eyes over your charts and offer advice.

I started charting 3 months a go and love it, knowing that morning my period will arrive as opposed to staring at BFN certainly is less disheartening and makes me feel more in control.

We have a MMC in May trying for baby no1 and I have a D&C cycles pretty much returned to normal however now I get the most hideous painful boobs now about a week before AF which I never had before.

Anyway, my chart this month has a huge dip 5dpo and a huge spike today 6dpo, have been having what feels like UTI symptoms but doctor said all is fine. Here is a pic of my chart

I am afraid i don't know about what your chat is donning but i am on my fourth month charting and have had almost exactly the same this month but the dip was on dpo4 then a huge rose the next day and it has stayed high. 8 so i now and dying to test! Fingers crossed it is a positive sign for us.

I have never had a dip like this after O! Have you had any other symptoms ?

I am trying to hold off testing until 15dpo and then I will see. I hate seeing BFN it just makes me feel awful.

It's coming up to what would have been my due date so I would ideally like to be pregnant before then but I know that it an unrealistic pressure to put on myself.

Off to the Bahamas in 30 days too. So would be a wonderful babymoon if it were to be a positive this month. FX for us both

I think anything different from normal can be a good sign! Generally my post o chart was very up and down but the past two cycles it was quite flat and I got my BFP this cycle!

Snowflake9 Tue 13-Nov-18 07:43:20

Congratulations on your BFP! How many dpo did you test ?

8dpo 🙊 had a veeeeery faint line on an internet cheapy. Confirmed with a digital at 12dpo.

Good luck!

My luteal phase is quite short though (I normally start spotting at 10dpo) so I feel like anything that didn't implant early would have no chance hence the early positive.

Giraffe888 Tue 13-Nov-18 08:47:45

I’ve just been looking at bfp charts and yours looks like an implantation dip!! Fingers crossed!!

Giraffe888 Tue 13-Nov-18 08:48:58

I was feeling positive about mine but I’m not now as I’ve not had an implantation dip

Snowflake9 Tue 13-Nov-18 08:52:00

I have read that the implantation dip isn't even a thing, some have dips and don't end up being positive tests. Some postivies don't have a dip. Yours has climbed nicely. FX for you!

Feel like I can go to work happy now I have your girls. My DH Doesn't really get it. Haha

It’s hard isn’t it? You become so consumed by it!! My DH is really on board this month and asking me every morning what’s happening!

When is AF due? Mine is 20th x

Daisypod Tue 13-Nov-18 09:18:15

Finally worked out how to get a screen shot of my chart. There was another dip yesterday but still way higher than I usually am at this point and back up again today.

Snowflake9 Tue 13-Nov-18 13:10:12

Daisypod looking good!! Yours is really high above cover line.

You do get consumed by it. DH doesn't understand but not really to talk and have a chat about it lol. He just likes to BD.

Charting is a way I feel in control of it. I believe my AF is due on 21st , next Wednesday. So we'll see. It's our first wedding anniversary this weekend so we shall see if we have a lovely anniversary present. smile

Aww how exciting! It’s my DH’d birthday next week so fingers crossed for good presents for us both!!! X

Snowflake9 Tue 13-Nov-18 13:44:17

Yes. This week is going to be torture though!

How do yours compare on overlay? Light blue is this cycle.

Giraffe888 Tue 13-Nov-18 13:51:02

This is the first month I’ve properly done my BBT so can’t compare! X

Giraffe888 Tue 13-Nov-18 13:51:19

Yours looks promising!!! X

Snowflake9 Tue 13-Nov-18 19:55:43

All my IC tests have arrived today. Let's see how long I can hold off for !! Haha.

How long have you been TTC if you don't mind me asking XX

Since Dec last year. What about you? X

Snowflake9 Tue 13-Nov-18 21:53:14

We started in March. And conceived first month. Had a silent miscarriage, find out at 12 weeks. Have been trying again since July.

I’m so sorry for your loss xx

Snowflake9 Wed 14-Nov-18 05:45:12

Thank you. It was probably the hardest thing I've been through. But we got through it. Just wasn't meant to be!

Temp is still up way above cover line for me. How about you this morning ? XX

I'd be keen to know how you get on. Rise for me this morning which is really unusual for it to be that high

Giraffe888 Wed 14-Nov-18 07:25:49

@snowflake9 mine has dropped .02 but is still way above x

@mrsof20118 yours is looking good! X
