My temp looks so low to me... I'm starting to wonder if I'm a lizard :P. Why don't they go up? I know I sometimes have up to 37C... just getting anxious for ovulation to happen. OPKs are still looking very negative. The funny thing was that the first day I tested CD8 it looked like the test line was darker than all the other tests I have done since... but the temps did not spike so I could not have Oed so early. I just have to be patient I guess... At least they're somewhat consistent. Has anyone had temps this low??

As you've only been temping a short while, you wont see a pattern, and it will look out of place. Alot of people atre different, not all have perfect BBT reading to coincide with there ovulation and such! And some women are cooler or hotter then other women. You'll start seeing a pattern soon. Try not to stress about it.... SSBD! ;) x

Thanks Louise! Yeah, I'm trying not to stress about it. I am quite petite so it's not surprising that my temps are so low - not enough blood going around :P hehe. I'm just hoping I don't have any thyroid issue or anything of the sort. That would suck! But the last time I've had a body check up the doc said I was fine so I just need to stop letting my crazy mind take the best of me.

How are you feeling? I noticed you got a BFN (sorry!) but like I said it may still be too early to tell. Any signs other than the BB feeling?

I have also just read that a dip in temps before ovulation could happen right before the rise so I'm taking this as a sign I will need to jump my boy as soon as he gets home tonight :D!! Woohoo baby dancing time! I can't wait for that BFP for all of us really :) xx

I am having the exact same problem - check out my temps this month compared to last month.  I think maybe I didn't ovulate but I did get an almost positive opk - It didn't go as dark as the control line in the mentioned time frame on the box but it did after about 10 mins.

a positive OPK doesnt always mean you ovulated, it just detects the surge, and some women can have a surge but then bot ovulate. I hope it isnt the case for you dscoqn because its just plain unfair!

Yes that's true. But also some women will have a surge and ovulate but not reach the levels that would be needed for a positive OPK so I would not lose my hopes :). I guess the main thing is to just keep BDing - that is the only way it will happen anyway :D. Good luck girls! And thanks for the reassurance :). xx and loads of SSBD to all!!
