AAHHHHH!!! This is only our first month of TTC, and already I'm feeling crazy lol I can definately feel something going on down there.
Yyyyyeeesssss I like to POAS often. VERY often. lol I did 2 Crystal Clear tests because with how I've been feeling, I thought that maybe I was already pregnant. And let me tell you I squinted and stared and studied those tests, for any hint of a line - BFN's although, the first one, you could see a really faint sort of line...... I'm pretty sure it was an evap. lol *sighs*

Anyway I am still feeling really weird - very strange... I am crampy and my bbs are tender, and I am absolutely EXHAUSTED, so so tired... My LMP was on 20th Dec, and my usual cycle length is 25 days. I had a blood test recently to check my iron levels - normal.

The thing that is bugging me is my temps! It is summer over here in Aussie, but the weather has been a little cooler than normal, I wouldnt think that would affect my BBT though? hmmm i'm not sure. I want to start charting my BBT but I don't know if my digital thermometer is either accurate or the right one. (It's the one that you put under your armpit) This morning I checked my temp, it was only 35C! So then I thought - nope! Can't be pregnant then??? A few months back I had a full blood test, and the doctor also checked my thyroid - all's normal.
Does anyone else get temps this low??
Is my thermometer useless for charting?
If I was charting, what would a low temp mean??

Sorry if these seem to be silly questions, but I am feeling frustrated/moody/weird... grr lol poor hubby

Cheers
Elise

Have you tested! You can't get a acurate temp using a reg therm. You really need a BBT. Charting also helps alot too. You can use charting software online too. I use fertility friend.

You have to get a thermometer that is specific for taking the BASIL body temp, not just any digital one.

But you can use it till you can get a good one Temps might be off a tad.

As for temps outside and such, I ahve TTC throughout the year and my temps have always stayed around normal.

GOOD LUCK!
