Just wondering from those of you who are testing your temp, is it normal for your temperature to still be high 2 days before your period?? Mine after period was roughly 97.5...didn't notice a specific spike (shift worker) but do notice that my temp is still 98.3 and 99.1 during the day 1 more than normal.........can anyone help me with this???

Usually if your watching you will notice that during ovulation your temp rises..if you concieve it stays high...if you dont it returns to normal...(usually)...unless you just have a cold or something...look it up under ovulation

Thanks Christine, There is so much info out there that is somewhat conflicting... I read a chart on some site that said your temp stays high right until your next period comes.....so now I'm really unsure. I definately don't have a cold though, at least not one that I have noticed!!! Your trying TTC obviously...how are thing going for you?

http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/bbt/bbtfaq.html (take out any hyphens that creep in) The chart shown here stays high until just a couple of days before it takes a dive at menstruation. If you do a search on BBT triphasic you will prob come up with a reference to the temp climbing to third level with pregnancy. The whole BBT thing depends on taking your temp on waking each morning. I imagine a shift worker might have probs with this on account of non-work days.

Thanks Grandpa Viv This chart sounds similar to the one I was looking at. I have been doing well taking my temp...there were a few days I didn't though. I initially didn't want to do all this stuff I just wanted to let it happen naturally. However my target date is nearing so I'm trying to stay calm but also take a more hands on approach. I will do a search on BBT triphasic and see what I come up with. Thanks Allot!!
