okay i dont' know that anybody was really talking about temps yet but anyways..... i know everybody has different temps and a high for one may not be a high temp for another. I know after you o, if your temp remains high that is a good sign of preg, so does that temp have to be as high as when you o'd or is it just higher than your average temp??

If you're nearing when you'd expect af and it's dropped down closer to your coverline, then the chances are af is on her way. Sorry to say that. In pregnancy, temps normally stay up or rise. Your temps may not drop below the coverline until a few days after af starts. Are you charting online? If so, post your chart!

i'm not charting online yet but it peaked of course at ovulation dropped just a bit and now its been steady at a few degrees higher than my "average" temp (by average I mean my temps after af and before ovulation) but not as high as when i ovulated, so i'm sure i'm just reaching still but just wondering if its even a possibility of pg :)

How many dpo are you? What's your coverline? How high and when was your highest temp? When did it drop to where it is now?

 

kleighw - May 8

I am 8 dpo, i dont' know what coverline is, my highest temp was 98.8 about 9 days ago, it dropped about two days after it peaked and now it is about 98.1-98

Wow, that's a bit strange. What a big range of temps! If you're only 8 dpo, then scratch what I said above. I don't mean to insult your intelligence here, but you *are* using your basal temps and not just any random temps, right?

thats okay not insulting but yeah, well and when i replied earlier i didn't look at my chart i was just trying to remember, so i got my chart out and put it on fertility friend, but i dont' know how to share it where you can view it

With the links on the left side of your charting page, go to Sharing-->Home Page Setup to make your home page. You can change the last directory in the url if you want. I made mine 'lin'. Once you've created the home page and view it, just copy and paste the url here. Here's mine, so you can see what it looks like: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/lin

thanks lin, here is the link to my chart http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/kleigh let me know whatcha think

That looks like a pretty normal chart to me. I personally wouldn't look at changes of only 0.2F as peaks or dips, because random fluctuations in your daily temps can be that large. In fact, if you ignore that point at 4 dpo altogether, the rest of your temps are pretty consistent. Some women get a secondary estrogen surge after ovulation, so that could be what that dip corresponds to...or, as I said, it could just be a random fluctuation. The only real changes that might indicate pregnancy from here on out would be another rise in temp or gradual rise or a large one-day dip below the coverline. Those can all occur between 7-12 days after ovulation and imply implantation. That said, I've had all of those before and not been pregnant, so always take it with some caution. It would be wonderful if there were some sure-fire signs of pregnancy, but unfortunately there aren't. That's why it's the dreaded 2ww! Best of luck to you, kleighw! If you like, join us over on the Fertility Friends thread and post your chart there!

My temps have been all over as well they started out at around 97.1 and now have been 98. My af is due on friday is that why the jump?

 

Lin - May 9

Snoopy, how long have your temps been up at 98? Are you charting online? If so, post it!

 

snoopy - May 9

I'm not charting on line but they have been that high for about a week now. I had a blood test done last Friday because I was in a car wreck and it said neg. I've been told that it was too soon to tell, is that true?

 

Lin - May 9

You are referring to your basal temps and not just any old temps, right? If so, then high temps for a week means that you ovulated a week ago. I'm not sure when the earliest is that a blood test can detect pregnancy, so I can't really answer as to whether or not a week after ovulation is too early.

 

snoopy - May 9

yes they are basal. I've been taken them twice in the a.m just to make sure. I always take the lower of the two.
