    So, I wasn't going to track BBT after yesterday... I failed, miserably. πŸ™„πŸ˜’
    Before bed, DH asked, "Aren't you going to put your temperature tracker on?" (* Referring to my TempDrop) I told him I was going to take a break for 6 or 7 days and he responded with "Well, I was curious what would happen since it was down for a couple days." πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ Since when has he had any interest in my BBT?!?! πŸ˜‚ - Never ... that I knew of. Anyway, I humored him (and myself. I'm not going to lie. πŸ˜‰πŸ€£) and wore my TD to sleep. This morning my temp was the highest it has been all cycle at nearly 99Β°F! And TMI - I woke to copious amounts of CF. So, NOW, DH and I agreed that I will track one or two more days "just to see" if the BBT increases (triphasic) or falls. With that stated: I AM A FAILURE AT NOT TRACKING (& DH is a terrible influence)!!!! πŸ™„πŸ˜’πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

    @Kaohinani: I know it would be good for you to stop temping for a while if it makes you anxious, but on the other hand there might come a "why didn't I temp, it would have been so much clearer" moment...

    Not temping has worked well for me during the summer, because our waking times have not been consistent and I don't have a wearable tracker. The down side is I don't know my OV date and never know how many dpo I am.

    It's great he's interested and invested though!

    @Kaohinani: Can you provide a "10 Tips for Getting DH Invested in BBT Tracking" It would be so nice to have someone else invested and along for the ride (besides all you lovely Bees of course)

    @Kaohinani: that’s so funny and great! I hope you keep seeing hopeful temps as long as you keep it up

    @paranundrum: Thank you! I do need to set perimeters on my BBT tracking though because I become extremely obsessed. πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚ I do agree that, knowing me, I will have a "woulda/coulda/shoulda" moment if I put a hiatus on tracking. πŸ€” Perhaps, I wear my tracker (which automatically puts my temps into my OvaView app) and I do not check it or enter it into FF after tonight's temps? It is an idea and may save me from any reservations as to whether or not I should continue or regrets if I do stop. My only concern is my will power NOT TO peek πŸ‘€. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

    @yellowbeach: DH is a really caring, enthusiastic, and curious partner. I scored big time my second time around getting married! πŸ‘ He nearly always takes atleast a minimal interest in whatever I am doing or what affects me. Right now, he knows he (and my kids) is/are my only TTC support outside of you all because we became frustrated with everyone telling us to just stop trying ... we decided to keep going but to keep everything to ourselves. It may be lonely at times, but we are "in it to win it πŸ˜‰" together. Anyway, I really wish I could provide tips on getting a SO more invested in all things TWW but I guess I just got lucky.

    @bhbee: Thank you! My plan has been modified (* read what I have proposed while responding to Paranundrum). I just hope I have the self control to not cheat and take a peek before 12 dpo after tomorrow's temp! πŸ™„πŸ€£

    @Kaohinani: I think that's a great idea. Your temps will still be recorded if you need to go back and check them, but you won't have to analyze them every day.

    @paranundrum: Exactly! πŸ‘ You and I are simpatico with that thought. Of course, this morning (7 dpo) my BBT hit 99Β°F so, now I have to decide whether or not to fully track BBT tonight [to see if I have a 3rd high temp which will make my chart triphasic) or just let my temps record on OvaView and remain blissfully ignorant. It's a tough decision.

    πŸ€” Not putting much stock in THIS as Pili has led me astray one too many times πŸ˜’:

    My puppy BFP detector is highly fallible... 😢😢😢🀣

    P.S. Dont judge me on my black top and navy sweats - I came home from work and threw on the nearest pair of "comfy pants" within close proximity. Unfortunately, they dont match. πŸ™„πŸ™

    @Kaohinani: People worry about matching their home outfits?!

    You don't have to worry, we really don't care what you're wearing as long as you are comfortable.

    @yellowbeach: @paranundrum:
    Thank you. I am [usually] ALL about coordinating my garments (and I wear A LOT of black) so I was actually embarrassed a bit to post my "black-&-navy mish-mash o' comfort!" πŸ™„πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
