Charting question.

Hi everyone! I'm SO glad I decided to look for this board :) DH and I are TTC #2. We are currently on cycle 8. To make a long story short, my progesterone is WAY low (4.9...should be 15!) so I will be starting natural progesterone supplements on CD 16. I've been using OPKs for 4 cycles now, so I know when I ovulate, but my OB wants me to chart as well. Here is my question:

AF started Monday afternoon. DH forgot to wake me up and I didn't hear the alarm go off so I didn't temp Tuesday or Wednesday. When I temped yesterday, I was at exactly 98.6. Today, at the same exact time, I was at 96.8? How in the world did my temp drop 2 whole degrees? The chart my doc gave me only goes to 97.0 on the grid. Has anyone ever had this happen?

Sometimes your temps stay high for a few days at the beginning of a new cycle, and then drop as AF leaves the house.

Thank you for the reply! I've set the alarm on my phone since DH can't remember to wake me before he leaves for work. I've taken my temp at 6:15 every day. It's always been 96.whatever since my second reading. I'm using a BBT. I'll just chart on Fertility Friend and print it out for him to see. I'm guessing it dropped that low when AF left, like you suggested. Thanks again :)
