so.  yesterday.  cd12.  i had a significant temp shift.  i did temp at 5 am, instead of the usual 7:30ish. opk was negative. i chalked it up to being sick, and crappy sleep. today is (natch) cd13, and temp is up for a 2nd day. opk was ridiculously positive. test line was twice as dark as the control. obviously, we are going to insem tonight.

my question lies with yesterday’s temp. i have never had a temp shift before a +opk. i usually ovulate the day after my first +. oh charting masters, when do you think O day will be? today? tomorrow? how would you plan insems if you were in my ovaries shoes?

i said this last month too.

in flagrant violation of rule 13 of oneofhismoms’ how to inseminate at home guide, i am cocking my head and wondering: is this an implantation dip? could it really be true?

or. did i fall asleep with the thermometer in my mouth yesterday morning, only to find it underneath my belly when i woke up?

we’ll know the truth in a few days.
