Goldenmom? need temp help please!!
i need your help again-you will have to start charging for this before long!!
Im confused about the temp thing. This is my first month charting and im unsure about the ovulation temp rise. When they say you need to see 3 days of sustained raised temp, do they mean higher than all your other temps so far (as recorded from CD 1), or just higher than the day before the 3 higher temps? (hope that makes sense!)
I havent found much help about this on the website im using and have looked at other peoples charts and found this has confused me even more. Some people have had a higher temp, then dipped even lower than some of their previous ones, and then risen a bit higher again and they have still detected this as ovulation.which has really puzzled me.
This is whats happening on my chart, on CD22 i noticed EWCM and got a positive OPK, my temp that morning was 36.19 which was quite a bit lower than normal (its normally 36.30-something or sometimes a little higher). Then both CD23 and today, CD24 its been 36.38. So even though its risen higher over the past two days, its still not higher than the average temps ive had in the first half of my cycle. No ovulation has been detected on my chart yet but then i guess they need to see the 3 days.
Im really confused and am thinking about stopping BBT as im not understanding it. any help you could give woud be great!
thanks in advance
