If you don't know anything at all about Natural Family Planning or the Fertility Awareness Method....I'll try to make this simple for you. If you do understand NFP or FAM you'll get right away, why I am TOTALLY psyched!

I have a clear and present OVULATION on my chart! (the little bird's nest with the egg in it) I am in the infertile phase & my temperature is still high. This is a CLASSIC TEXT BOOK CHART! Everything is EXACTLY as it should be!

I have never had a chart do anything even remotely close to this.

I am scheduled to start my period on Oct. 28. That's 14 days past ovulation. That's a pretty standard guestimate. If I have not started by Oct. 31...I'm most likely PREGANT! I can take a pregnancy test starting at 9 days past ovulation (DPO) but I don't know if I will. There is a chance of it being negative that early...I'd love to think I have the willpower to wait.

What should I do?
I am trying very hard, not to get my hopes all the way through the roof, so that if I'm not pregnant, I won't be AS dissapointed. Right now, the biggest thing making me happy is CLOMID worked! I ovulated thanks to this drug! If I don't end up pregnant there are 2 options, try again & temp/and "try" better or have Tim tested & then temp/and "try" better. There's always the possibility that his car accident could have hurt his fertility. He was pretty messed up in that whole region.
Wish me luck...If you pray, say a prayer. Tim and I BOTH want a baby so badly! Just to give you a comparison. This is just my temps from one of my "normal" cycles. This is over a span of 131 days! Up, down, around, and back again....all the time.
