11:09 am - Help with determining when I ovulated
My chart is doing funky things this month (I feel like charts do funky things every month though, amirite?). Generally I ovulate anywhere from CD16 to CD19. This month, I originally thought I Oed on CD17. Then there was this crazy temperature drop below my CL on 4dpo (which is most likely a crazy estrogen surge or maybe due to the fact I drank the night before, even though the other spot I have marked as drinking the night before elevated the following temperature -- whatever, bodies are weird), and even though a part of me is like "well, that's strange, that's the first time in 2 years of charting that that's ever happened" I'm trying to remind myself I'm TTA and that we're using condoms on fertile days for this (though there may be some unsafe fooling around beforehand, not with any actual finishing inside me, but I have heard stories of women getting pregnant on precum).

Anyway, it's probably just an estrogen surge, but the drop below CL confused FF and I went in to override it with my assumed original O date of CD17. I just wanted to see if other FAMers were in agreement with my interpretation (since I've never really gone in to manually place a coverline, I just wanted to be sure I was doing it right). Thanks!

ETA Also, I marked yesterday's CM as watery, though I sometimes have a hard time determining what actually qualifies as watery CM. It was all hanging out on my cervix (which was pretty wet), though on my fingers it looked very thin and slightly tinted white. It wasn't thick and creamy/lotiony or what would otherwise be obvious creamy CM. Would you call this watery as well?

Did you place that coverline or did FF?
Usually drinking increases the temp the following day.

I did, but I put it where FF originally had. Also, I thought it might be due to drinking the night before, but the other note on my chart was also from drinking and it elevated my temperature. So I don't know. :/

Did FF take the lines away?
What is the reason for the open dots pre-O?

FF took the lines away at 4dpo, and today I added them back in. The open circles were from waking up too late due to forgetting to set my alarm or before my alarm.
