Charting question related to pregnancy.....

As you guys know I took two tests at 10dpo and they were positive, light but positive. I took another one at 11 dpo and it was also a light positive. I've only got one test left so I'm not taking it until tomorrow morning. I'm having a lot of white, creamy discharge, sorry tmi, and this morning at 12dpo my temp. went from 97.8 to 98.6...a pretty high spike. My highest temp post ovulation has been 98.2. I've heard about a third temp rise with pregnancy. Anyone had this? I'm going to go to the doctor tomorrow morning but I'm nervous. Since my first miscarriage was so early and the next so late in the first trimester, I've never had beta's checked or anything like that. What do I ask for or what kind of questions do I ask? I know she will refer me to my ob but until then should I have them check something? Also, I'm really nervous about going back to my ob b/c I have so many bad memories there with the last m/c. I keep telling my husband he will probably have to drag me into the u/s room b/c I can't even forsee myself going in there again. Thanks for all of your support!!

This article should help you...the bottom line is murky as it is most of the time with TTC. The presence of a third temp rise can mean something sometimes but not always. Only looking back on it in hindsight will be you able to tell that it was related to pg. You can have a 3rd rise and be pregnant and you NOT have once and still be pg. On the other side of that coin, you can NOT be pregnant and still get the 3rd rise. It just can't be relied upon, sorry. There is almost nothing in the 2WW that can reliably indicate pg for that matter as almost all symptoms are also symptoms of AF impending.
