Have you tried using medhelps temp tracker, there is another web site that records temps and tells you what is going on during this time, i cant remember what it is called. From what i can recall when i was taking my temps is that you should take it the same time, same way etc. everyday, sometimes when you do it a diff way it can cause a temp change, also, they sorta recomend taking your temp for about 4-5 months to really see a pattern, Month 1,2, and 3 temps were weird for me, but for month 4, 5, and 6 i was really able to see a pattern, see what my baseline really was because month 1,2 and 3, baselines were not the same. If i could have done things different with ttc(being i tried a whole lot of methods within 6 months) i wouldve just stuck to using opks and BD'g, everything else just brought on a big headache and unnecessary stress and lack of sleep. I hope the little info i gave helps.
Sending you much baby dust
Yeah, I use the medhelp tracker and the fertility friend tracker. I kept researching on it after I posted this and may have found what it can be. Possibly a "fallback rise". Apparently some women will ovulate and have the high temp right after, only to have their temp dip again immediately. I'm still not quite sure why it would do this but I also read that it doesn't affect fertility. So it may be that, but since it was a three-day dip, I'm not sure if that applies to me or not. This is definitely kind of stressful and I try not to over-analyze every little thing when it comes to ttc, but it's easier said than done. Sometimes it just takes over!! Thanks for your help though!
You are right about looking at temps at hindsight and I believe that it's not just looking at one cycle, but at several cycles (like Latrice said) to see the pattern. It's hard to say with only 2 cycles worth of temping.
Plus, I have also found with my temping (over a year of it) that it can sometimes be affected by the season. For instance in the spring when some nights you can have the windows open and some nights not. Sometimes you have more covers on, some nights not. Sometimes you have to pee at midnight and some nights not at all. So all of those things can have some sort of small variation on your temps, so try not to stress about them too much.
You're right, I think I'm trying to predict my own fate here even though I know that isn't how it works. I need to figure out a way not to let this tww thing run my life, lol. Thanks for all the advice though!
