My BBs are a little sore, but THAT'S IT. No other IPS. Most other months, I find 3-5 things that I hang onto to convince myself that I have a chance that month, but this month? Totally nada.
I don't even feel confident with how many DPO I am! With the disagreement between my CM, my temps, and my CBEFM readings, I could feasibly be 7, 8, or 9 DPO today...consider what FF says:
- Using the ADVANCED method, FF says that CD 21=9 DPO. The explanation of this method claims that it takes into account ALL fertility signs, but really, I think it's looking at my temp rise on CD 13 and the fact that my last day of EWCM was on CD 12. (If I switch to the FERTILITY AWARENESS method, it also says that CD 21=9 DPO. The explanation on this method focuses entirely on temps.)
- Using the RESEARCH method, FF says that CD 21 = 8 DPO. The explanation of this method claims that it takes into account all new discoveries in cycle patterns and can be unstable because it is constantly changing.
- Using the OPK/MONITOR method, FF says that CD 21 = 7 DPO. This method looks primarily at the results of any OPKs you take or your PEAK readings on the CBEFM...and specifically, centers O on the second PEAK.
So...9 DPO would equal testing on 2/14; 8 DPO would equal testing on 2/15; and 7 DPO would equal testing on 2/16. I'm just realized that NO method recommends testing on 2/17; I'm so superstitious on that date, as it was my LMP from my miscarriage last spring.
What to do, what to do? Well...I had a promising temperature jump this morning...perhaps that could mean that I'll have a triphasic chart. If my temps the next few mornings support that and stay high, I will go ahead and test on 2/14. If this morning's temp was a fluke and it goes back down to around what it's been for the past couple days, I'll take it as a sign to wait until 2/15. And if it drops and stays low, I'll probably blow off 2/16 and wait until 2/18 to make sure AF isn't screwing with me.
What do ya'll think?
