So charting savvy ladies I need some insite again. My temps have been looking pretty txt book (I think....I'm still trying to get the hang of this). It even looked like I maybe had and implatation dip a few days ago but the passed three days my temps have been flat......97.90 accross the board. I've worke up the same time as usual, not doing anything different. I was reading on FF and they said the culprit could be my thermomator but I don't think it is because

I'm still a temping rookie so I'm not too sure what the flat temps mean but have you tried comparing your chart to similar charts? You can compare it against others with flat temps that ended in bfp's. *but only if you're a VIP -if not then this advice won't help you at all*

Based on recent bfps it looks like counting yourself out is an early prego symptom so fx'd it's the same for you :)

I tried that but I'm not a VIP :( I've been looking at FF's chart galleries tho and I've seen some w/ flat temps that end in BFPs. I'm still holding out a little hope.....but not much lol! So maybe I won't be completely crushed if AF shows. It does seem that counting your self out is an EPS lol! Maybe that's a good sign....who knows?!? This TTC business sure is TRICKY!

Not trying to get your hopes up but that's how my temps were this cycle. My plateau was 98.2 and it stayed there consitantly after ovulation except what I believe was an implantation dip it dropped at 7 DPO to 97.6 and then it went back up to 98.2 steadily until I got my BFP at 12 DPO.

Tricky is an understatement lol! I played around with my chart & entered 3 flat temps & ff didn't say anything about it in my analysis & I also compared it to other charts & saw lots of bfps so fx'd! Stay high temps :)

Have you tried retaking your temp right away? Maybe it'll be different? Just a thought...

Laura.....I've been doing nothing but looking at charts all afternoon lol! Can we say OBSESSED! And I've noticed quite a few ladies get temp plateaus in pg cycles, so my hopes are much higher :) Maybe we really did finally catch that egg this month!! :smileyvery-happy:

Oh and Angela I have tried to retake it right after and its veried VERY minutly like went up to 97.91 or 97.92 which I attributed to moving around a little. Maybe things are looking more promising than I thought! *KEEPING MY FINGERS CROSSED* Thanks for the help :)

I'm trying to hold out until Friday or Saturday that's when AF is due. I may change my mind tho lol! I've been keeping hpts outta the house so I wouldn't test early, but I work next door to a pharmacy and it's REALLY hard to resist running over there on my lunch break and buying their whole stock of tests!

Day 4 of the same temp! Hope that's good news :) I did some fiddling with my thermometer tho just to be positive it wasn't the cause. I took my temp last night after coming in from feeding the dog...it was chilly outside and I didn't wear a jacket...and it was 96.98. Then I took it this morning after eating a hot breakfast and it was 99.67. So it can register other temps!

I'm feeling kinda yucky today. Really tired and nauseous :( And have heartburn like crazy! Getting ready to go to work now so maybe that will keep me from obsessing all day, but tomorrow and Thursday I'm off work. Hopefully I can keep busy and keep myself from scouring the internet all day for symptoms and charts similar to mine lol!

Hope ya'll have a great day ladies! I'm off to go make cakes and sweet treats all day :)
