I've been charting this past cycle to kind of get an idea of whats going since my cycles have been of since my m/c in July and possible chemical pregnancy last month. My coverline is 96.7 and after an implantation dip I had at 7 dpo my temps have been about 96.9-97.1. I had a positive pregnancy test yesterday and another one today at 11 & 12 DPO (very faint lines but there, and darker today than yesterday); however I've kept on temping just out of curiosity and my temp today to a dip below my coverline it was 96.4 when I took it, didn't think that was right so I retook it right away and it was 96.6!? I keep telling myself it's because I woke up with all the covers off and I was chilly. I am very concerned now that something is wrong. Has anyone else charted into their pregnancy and also notice dips like this? I'm also taking prometrium (progesterone) so it shouldn't be because of too low progesterone. I've looked everywhere but can't find any info on what temps do when you're pregnant just that they can be erratic so I'm desperately hoping some of you ladies might know.

You'll drive yourself mad taking temps still. I stopped taking mine after I had a huge dip and now I'm sick so I'm glad I stopped. They'll be all over the place. It has to do with your progesterone so when the placenta is growing, it will jump around. The best thing to do is get an hcg and progesterone done, and stop temping.

Thanks! I feel better knowing I'm not the only one, I agree it's defintley time to put away the thermometer and just let things be. I'll be calling my doctor at some point today to see if he'll order some betas for me, hopefully I'll start to be able to relax then.
