what is up with the sudden jump in my temp today??? I have been averaging around 97.1 ish till OV but now I am 4dpo and suddenly jump to 98.4??? is this normal??? I have NEVER charted my temps before this cycle and I am sooooooo totally lost!!!
I don't know what to say, sorry. The only thing we can do is wait for the next few days temps to see what they do, kwim? I see a lot of open circles on your chart, do you get the min 3 hours sleep; do you temp at the same time everyday?
I have been sleeping from 4-12 hours a day (10-12 for the last 3 days) and since I don't have a "normal" sleep cycle (cause I have insomnia) I take my temp at about 3 hours from waking up every day (I usually lay in bed for 2 hours after waking)...
its harder to day because there werent a lot of temps before Oing. I really dont know why there is so much difference. I didnt really understand what you said about your sleeping? You dont take it at the same time every day?
ok basically... some days I don't go to sleep until 5am others I am asleep by 5pm... because of this big range I can wake up anywhere from 2am to 2pm... I usually stay laying down for about 2 hours after waking up... then I take my temp an hour after leaving my bed...
So while it's not exactly the same time it is the same time frame from when I wake up each day...
Ok this could be why your temps are all over the place.
#1. Make sure you temp BEFORE you start moving around and get out of bed!
#2. Try to temp after you've had at least 4 hours of straight sleep no matter what time it is.
I'm no pro, but this would be the most advice I could offer with your special situation.
So sorry you have to deal with insomnia.
