BBT Slow rise......

My charts always have a distinct higher temperatures, like, it'll rise like 0.4 after O, then another 0.2, then another 0.2, etc...and they rise and rise and then level out. But this is my first cycle TTC and my temp rose 0.4 after O, but has had a very slow but steady rise, like I've never had before on any of my other charts

.I have been taking my temperatures a little earlier after O (I have been waking up in the midde of the night for some reason, about 45 minutes or so before my usual temp time---which is why all the open circles after O-------Instead of taking it at 4:30am, I've been taking them around 3:45am)

It's rising, but only in the hundredths, when it's usually in the tenths.

Hmm, could be the early waking/sleep disturbances that are causing your temp to not be as high as usual after O. It IS still going up though... :-)

Shawna, of course the one cycle I start TTC, I have so many 'issues' with my chart. haha. Usually it's very easy to interpret, but I think where I've been really anxious about the 2WW, I haven't been sleeping well because I keep thinking in the back of my head "I need to go to sleep....I need 3 hours in order to have an accurate temp" and of course I've been waking up like every hour in the night. Ugh! This is irritating me. haha. Thanks for the input. Maybe I'll go to bed a little later tonight so maybe I won't wake up as early and I can get an accurate reading tomorrow morning.

LOL, probably! Good luck with getting more sleep tonight!
Why do you wake up so early anyway???

LOL, Shawna....I am a stay-at-home wife but my husband usually gets up around 5am for work. I usually set my phone alarm to go off around 4:30am so I can wake up to take my temp and give me time to fall back asleep before he wakes up, because once he is up and getting ready, if I haven't feel back asleep, he'll wake me up for good and I can't go back to sleep all day. I've got irregular heart beats often, and it gets worse if I don't get lots of sleep, so that's why. I need my beauty/heart sleeplol. Just here lately, I have been restless thinking about possibly being pregnant and I keep waking up like every hour. Thank you, I hope I can get more sleep tonight...I just wish I knew YES or NO! haha. :smileytongue:
