OH OH OH OH....I really did!

Well...after convincing myself that my chances were ruined...it turns out that I definately did O. I wasn't sure about which day at first. I have the interpretation method set to Research (VIP) and it gave me crosshairs and said O was on CD19. When I switch it to Advanced it takes them away again. I put in a dummy temp for tomorrow and then the Advanced setting also gives me crosshairs for the same day....so apparently FF thinks it's fallback rise!

Very cool. I'm so glad we didn't miss out on the good timing. I just sent my husband an email to let him know. He'll be very happy.

Fallback rise is a BBT chart pattern in which your temperature rises after ovulation but then falls back down immediately. This usually happens at 2-3 dpo. It then goes back up shortly after.

Before O, estrogen levels peak and then drop, causing LH level to peak and then drop, causing ovulation. One theory of fallback rise is that the estrogen level is still dropping after the LH level has dropped, and the progesterone levels have not risen high enough to push the temperatre up. Estrogen causes low temps, progesterone high temps. By the next day, the estrogen level is down and the progesterone level pushes the temperature back up. The result is a chart that looks like mine this time.

This pattern doesn't happen all the time but happens often. I think it depends one what time you O compared to when you take your temps, and how high the estrogen level really goes.

Unfortunately, until you have more high temps after the drop at 2dpo, it's very difficult to figure out whether or not you have ovulated...like me!

Hope that answers your question!
