The Heat Is On - Welcome To The 2WW

I woke up this morning (after dreaming about checking my temperature all night - seriously!) to discover that my temp had jumped up from 96.9 to 97.9 - a whole degree! If that's not an ovulation rise, I don't know what is.

My only concern is that my temp had been at 97.9 already earlier in my cycle, and I was always under the impression that the rise had to be at least 3-tenths ABOVE what it had been at any other point in the cycle. But then I looked online at other chart examples, and I noticed that not all ovulation rises (at least the first temp in the rise) were above all the previous temps. In fact, this case seemed more the norm than the exception.

Anyway, I'm happy to announce that I'm officially in the 2WW. Today is 1 DPO. I feel good about it. We certainly had enough sex so I think our chances this cycle are as good as they can be!

Now I'm going to focus my mental efforts on implantation. I'm going to try to take it easy over the next week and get plenty of rest, to encourage that little egg to decide that my uterus will make a good home! I'm not sure what else I can do to be proactive here.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to up my chances of a successful implantation?
