Down to the 1ww - 1 day dip in temp?

I am abot 8dpo, and think I'm reading too much into any and every sign. This is our first real month trying since I had a mc in April. Yesterday, my bbt dipped a good .8 degrees (like back to pre-o levels), but today was back up a full degree. I'm not sure if that is usual or what. Normal pms symptoms would be feeling teary, a bit of bloating, larger bbs...but this time, I had a brief bit of feeling emotional, and not much bloating or bbs yet.

We dtd the day before o, but then dh was out of town so we couldn't follow up - so I'm just not really sure what to think. To make it worse, my cycles have been off - 29 days 2 months ago, 39 days last month (which I attribute to the stress of a move and starting a new job). At this point, nothing to do but wait, right?

It is so hard to wait, isn't it!! Well, it could be the implantation dip, as it can happen around 7-10 days post o.  I found for me it happened on the 7th or 8th day for my 2 pregnancies.  Or it could be a fluke temperature.  Is there any reason why your temp would be lower (a colder night, a longer length of sleep before taking your temp)? Good luck to you!
