Hi ladies-


All is well since I got my BFP two weeks ago.

FWIW, I would put the thermometer down. I temped for a couple of days after I got my BFP last year, but then I made myself put it away. We do tend to flip out over one low temp and one low temp almost never means anything. I just don't see any really good reason to continue temping.

Ideally, your temp should stay above your coverline in pregnancy, but it is very likely to bounce around a lot.

I always stopped temping in the first tri. It really doesn't mean much after you have your BFP!


Congratulations again!!

Thank you for the insight; I think for my sanity I will step away from the themometer...LOL.

Congrats on your little girl! How exciting! Thanks for the advice; I'm going to put away the themometer.
