18 DPO?!?!?!??!

I am totally puzzled by this chart. My temperature rarely stays as high as it's been for the past week and I still have no real signs of AF showing up. I have gotten way too excited too many times, and the fact that I've now taken three HPT's (including one of those stupid digital ones that smacks you in the face with the words, "NOT PREGNANT,") is becoming beyond confusing to me. The more I look at it now, the more I think maybe I didn't O until CD 22 or 23, but the not all of the signs match up. Who am I kidding, the signs don't match up anywhere. I keep thinking every morning when I wake up that my temp will take a complete nose dive, and it just keeps hovering.

So, what do you ladies think? Was it really day 12, where we have a bit of a chance, and I just am slow to show a positive (I really don't think so), was it day 22 or 23, where we also have a chance, or was it somewhere in between, where we absolutely have no chance outside of immaculate conception because Grouper was on a fishing trip for 8 days and I didn't see him?

Just when I thought I was somewhat regular.....BAM! Thanks, Mother Nature, you suck a big one rock.


  1. I'd have to say I think you're right, Gidget, and you had a later ovulation this month. Have you considered opks? I find the CBEFM more straightforward (and less laborious) than charting was.

    How tiring all of this is.

  2. Finally breaking down and buying OPKs for September...I'm sick of this.

  3. I agree. Chart with the opks even the Internet cheapies. I think you did O later - the fact that FF has given you dotted CHs mean it's not too sure either. Blah.

  4. I honestly don't know. Compared to earlier charts, it would seem this O date is right. But if that's the case, then it totally looks like a positive chart. And sadly, I think theres not much else to do besides wait right now. :o( Maybe give it 3-5 more days. If there's no AF or BFP by then, I'd say it's time to head to the doc for some blood work. It's just crazy! I don't understand! And I'm so frustrated for you!

  5. WTH? I think you might be right - CD22/23 looks more promising than 12. I'm so sorry - what a bummer. :( Grab those OPKs and hopefully they are the key you need to get that sticky BFP!
