I've mentioned before that I'm a chart stalker. The truth is, I'm totally addicted to bbt. You know how some girls out there in IF land are addicted to POAS? Yeah, that's not me. I couldn't care less about repeating OPKs and HPTs. I take one when I need to but I don't really get a thrill from waiting for those lines to appear. I could discuss BBT forever though. Trends, averages, triphasic patterns, don't get me started! I wake myself up during the weekends too even though I can sleep in. I can spend 30 minutes putting in dummy temps just hoping that those crosshairs will appear. For instance yesterday I figured out that if I got a temp today between 97.59° and 97.72° that would mean I ovulated on Saturday. Over 97.72° and it would say I ovulated on Sunday. So this morning I found myself awake at 5:30 (much the the annoyance of Kevin — the lightest sleeper ever!) and had to keep reminding myself that I needed to wait till 6:00am to take my temp and that I need to keep very still and get back to sleep quickly. Finally when the music started playing, that thermometer was in my mouth quicker than it took Kevin to wake up. And it came up 97.86° - so most likely ovulating on Sunday. And you better believe that I'm playing around with FF today trying to figure out what my range is so that I get confirmation tomorrow.
Also, now that Andrea got her BFP I have no other charts to look at! For sanity's sake, if you're on FF let me know! I need to feed my addiction.
**Update: I need to have a temp of at least 97.61° tomorrow in order to confirm ovulation on Sunday. I've already checked.
