If I ovulated, I'm going to assume it was on Sunday and I am 3dpo today. My temps are completely useless so I can only go by my opks. There isn't any point in waiting for a temp rise now because my opks are negative and my cm is no longer fertile. I took out Saturdays and Sundays temps because I had been drinking the nights before. That makes a Sunday O look possible. I wish I had more pre-o temps to go by but I didn't bring my thermometer when we were out of town. Honestly I thought I would have plenty of time to collect pre-o temps when we returned, but my opks surprised me. I thought with the digital opks and bbt I would have more answers, but instead it's just another cycle wondering if I even ovulated. Oh well, as with any other 2ww I can only wait and see... Maybe I will get lucky.

Huge temp spike this morning. It makes no sense at all. I half woke up early, and tossed and turned until temp time.. but I do that most days so it doesn't explain the jump today. I would love to blame it on implantation, but if I did ovulate on Sunday, I am only 4 dpo. Oh well, nothing to do but wait. The good news is, dh initiated a bd session last night. I don't know where that came from, but I'll take it! So... if I ovulated Sunday and my temp decided to spike 4 days later (what!?) then we are covered. And if I ovulated yesterday, 4 days after my first positive opk (again, what!?) then we are covered. I can only fantasize about a 2ww where I actually knew the day I ovulated. I see this as a good thing for the obsessive poas addict. My first bfns can be rationalized by the theory that I must have ovulated later. This means I can pee on twice as many sticks! Yesterday I had an enormous appetite and by the early afternoon I was so exhausted I couldn't think straight, then this morning I am feeling queasy. If only there was the possibility that I was more than 4 dpo so I could call these symptoms... but that isn't possible so I have to attribute it to not eating well or getting enough exercise. Too bad Sad
Okay, I don't know what I was thinking but decided to look for bfps at 5 dpo on FF. There were 12 results. The logical side of me says this is physiologically impossible and these ladies probably had their O date wrong. But the more dominant insane side of me is saying "oh, so I can test tomorrow morning!" I think the earliest I have ever tested was 6 dpo... always resulting in a bfn of course, whether I was pregnant or not. Then again, I didn't have the more sensitive 10miu tests handy, like I do now. LOL

5DPO? BFN.
I know, I know. I am actually emabarrassed as I type this. It's those crazy ladies posting their supposed bfps at 5 dpo on FF. I put all the blame on them. I knew what would happen, and was not at all surprised, nor disappointed. Temp dropped this morning but is still higher than the low erratic temps I had up until yesterday. It's like I can see a shift on my chart now, but it occurs a few days after my positive opks and fertile cm. Very weird. I had it in the back of my mind that this could very possibly be an anovulatory cycle... I had all the signs leading up to O, and then nothing happened. But this thermal shift now is throwing that possibility off as well. I'm definitely annoyed, but defeated as well. There is just no sense obsessing like this. What's done is done. Now I wait...

Thanks davina, glad I'm not the only one Tongue
For no reason, I looked up bfps at 6 dpo and there were 33 results.. much better than the 12 for 5 dpo! Of course I can't even be sure I'm really 5 dpo and most likely I am not. But I will probably test tomorrow anyway. I have a million cheap internet strips, why not?

7DPO?
Do I see something? A streak? An evap? A faint bfp? I wish I knew. I have to remember these 10miu strips did some funny things last cycle. Not too hopeful but maybe I will test again this afternoon...

UPDATE: 2 more tests, 2bfns. Silly streaky tests. Hoping for better luck with fmu tomorrow.

Yes, I have noticed it with the 10miu strips too, not so much an evap "line" but a lot of pink streaking, and sometimes where the line would be. I have a few left, and while I liked the idea of the more sensitive test, I don't think I will buy anymore. They just encourage me to test way too early lol
