Hi there, I was wondering if anyone has been tracking their BBT and if you find it helpful. I find mine is a bit off the wall and I experience huge leaps on a day to day basis sometimes. Is that normal?
Hi Jen, i being tracking my temps for a month now and i love it. It told the exact day when i ovulated. I think is a good think to do if you are trying to conceive, it makes it easier to pin point which day you have to have sex. Hope i help sweety!
I've been Charting for 13 mos. and the charts have shown me some patterns I wouldn't have necessarily picked up on. I've learned that I do in fact ovulate each month as opposed to anovulatory bleeding. I've learned the length of my luteal phase so I know when to expect AF. I also learned that I had a chemical pregnancy - something that a hpt won't usually detect. It's been a great personal resource of info.
I will confess that I do the lazy lady's charting method, in that when AF starts I won't take my temps for about a week then start back up on CD7. This week gives me a little break to take my mind off another failed attempt at TTC and gain my optimism to try again. Good luck to you!!
iv been tracking mine for like a week or so. and i have noticed that its kinda wacky too. but i had a D&C July 26th 2011 i was the pose to be 10w4d but miscarried 9w2d. but all day iv been feeling kinda worm than normal.
I find tracking temps really helpful too. It helped me know that I had ovulated when i had unregular cycles. it helps me know when my period is coming. I'm also a bit lazy and start taking temps about a week or even up to 14 days after as longer cycles.
I have been tracking for a while now and I find it really helpful. I had a chemical pregnancy in May 2011 and my doctor suggested it after that. I have learned alot about my body. When I am stressed my temperatures are all over the place, but I can still pin point when I ovulated. Also, now that I have been less stressed, my temperatures are starting to regulate a bit more. You also notice other patterns that you woudn't otherwise. Further, hopefully you wont have to go through this, but it is a great thing to take in to show your fertility specialist. My RE looked at it, and mentioned that I might have something going on with my luteal phase. However, you need to find something that works for you. Good luck!
