Ok... So I know this may sound silly. But how many ladies here have temped with more than one pregnancy? If you did, were your charts very similar to each other? Or were your charts with each pregnancy totally different?
I know that BBT charting only helps with detecting ovulations...blah...blah..
But I was wondering if there was a similarity between pregnancy charts when its your own chart. Does that make sense.
I feel like my temps should be higher if I am pregnant, but I guess they don't neccessarily have to be.
Just wondering if you ladies that have had more than one pregnancy and charted both pregnancies had charts that were the same with both pregnancies or if they were totally opposite.
My temps spiked all three times and reached 98.6 to 99.0 degrees each cycle. Like you said, though, your temps don't have to be really high to be pregnant or vice versa. Have you checked out FF's chart gallery?
I have looked through them... but I see some charts that are non pregnancy charts that look a lot like the pregnancy charts. It is really hard to gage because you can relate your chart to both. I saw some BFP charts that were barely over the coverline. So Idk... My last pregnancy bbt chart I had high post o temps... nice little implantation dip and then dip rose right back up. But Never "triphastic" like they say... So am just wondering if most women that have charted more than one pregnancy...if the charts look the same or if they look totally different.
Like Adrienne all my charts have the same trend whether they were pregnant ones or not.
The charts really are for confirming ovulation and determining cycle and LP length and such. You cant look at one over another and say this one is a pregnant one and this is a non-pregnant one.
YOu can have an implantation dip or not, be triphasic or not, have a long or short LP or not, have high post O temps, a fall back rise, a slow rise.... all these can lead to nothing or a baby... There is no set criteria though we all wish there was
The difference between a pregnancy and non pregnancy chart should be that your temp doesn't drop.
