Background: I've been charting my BBT for 11 cycles (out of my 19 TTC) and have gotten a clear temp rise each of those months...until this one.
Here are a few typical charts for reference.
Typically my coverline is at 97.4 (above is 97.3) and my post-O temps are 97.6 or higher.
I don't typically get an O dip, but I did the month above.
And here's this month.
My IUI was on CD12. The 2 temps before that were 97.6 that I disturbed because the puppy and then Mr. GG's snoring kept me restless all night. The next day was 97.5 which is the day we triggered. And then ever since the IUI it's been 97.6....EVERY....DAY. I was also on Estrace for the 2 temps pre-IUI.
Now 97.6 is typically a post-O temp for me. I also felt ovary pain on CD11 and 12 and it went away after that.
I am just slightly freaked out that I can't see a clear temp jump, that somehow this is the first month in 19 that I haven't ovulated (even though I saw the 21 and 18mm follies with my own eyes) and that somehow we mis-timed everything.
Mr. GG and I did it the old-fashioned way on the night of the IUI and the night after, but we didn't last night (long story).
Can anyone provide any reassurance?
Sorry if I sound crazy, and that you have to read through a rambling mess, but you get it right? I know I could have solved this whole problem by either temping the entire month or not temping at all, but because I have, I'm frustrated. Mr. GG keeps asking what each temp "means" and I keep repeating that I have no idea and then give him my half-baked theories.
What I really want to know is:
1) Does Estrace (Estrogen) 6 mg vaginally increase temp?
2) How long does it stay in my system?
3) Is there any way to not ovulate after a trigger shot?
4) Am I nuts? : )
