Flat temperatures?
Tue, 08-24-2010 - 4:53pm

Hi all. I am very new to charting my BBT...just started this month.
So, some background about me....I am 26 and my DH is 31, we aren't TTC just yet, but AF has been a weird (only lasted 1 1/2 days rather than 5) in the past couple of cycles, so I am trying to 'get a feel' for my body. We did have an 'oops' though on 1DPO - our condom broke! We know that chances are pretty slim for us to get pregnant on this day, but I would be over the moon happy if we were.

So anyway, the past 4 days (7DPO - 10DPO) my BBT has been exactly the same (98.34F), creating a 'flat' line on my chart. This temperature is well above my coverline (97.8F). All of these temperatures and several before it were all taken at the same time in the AM after a full night of sleep. Has anyone ever had flat temperatures like this before?

I know the temperatures are NOT from a malfunction of the thermometer. I had my husband take his temperature with it yesterday morning to see if he got the same reading I did and he got something totally different, and I have also checked at other points of the day and gotten readings that were not 98.34.

Thanks in advance for any insight!

I've seen flat line temps before.
