The moment I wake up, before I put on my makeup…
I take a little temp for you:
My chart is simply out of control. I have no idea what’s going on, and after talking to my girlfriend who’s temped for years, I’ve realized there isn’t a way to know. The Mirena has me all screwed up. I’m not even sure when this last cycle started because it stopped me from having real periods. I just had to pick a day.
Oh men. I am SO SORRY. Do not read anymore. ((hugs))
Go bleach your eyes.
Anyway, every morning I wake up and stick the basal body thermometer in my mouth, then snuggle down and wait for the beep. After, I grab my cell, click the Fertility Friend app, and record the degree. I’m still learning about all of this. Last week I found out that taking your temp at the same time every day means like no more than a half hour difference. That can be really hard since Sam leaves for work really early sometimes. I’m never quite sure what to do if I have to pee so bad, and I usually don’t temp till around 7. :/
This makes me quite crumply.
TCOYF says to use only the first number after the decimal when recording (ex: 97.3) but my thermometer and Fertility Friend use both (ex: 97.34). So I’ve recorded both ways and I can’t tell if it’s really changing anything?
It’s all over the place. I’m recording other signs, but felt like that really was TMI so I cropped it out on the pic.
What is interesting about all this is seeing my body adjust. We’re not in a hurry to get pregnant. In fact I’d be fine if, unlike with Bella, it took a few months this time. I’d really like to know what’s going on before it gets all whacked out again.
Hopefully things start to smooth out and I see some sort of a pattern up there.
