I got a BBT thermometer to use for next cycle- But just for kicks, I used it this morning. I'm 11dpo and it was 98.89...... I used it at 6am when I was still in bed and hadn't spoken/ gotten up yet. Is that a high temp? Seems odd to me.
It's on the higher end, but it's hard to tell anything without having any temps around it. Did you sleep in a warm room or with a lot of blankets? As long as you hadn't done anything before you temped, then that would be your BBT for today. If they are high when you chart next month, it *could* be a sign of a thyroid issue, but I wouldn't be concerned over it if it's just today's temp.

As rlh27 said, it's kind of difficult to know without other temps around it. A BBT thermometer is much more accurate than a regular thermometer. For example, sometimes my BBT registers a whole degree higher than my regular digital thermometer.
All that said, don't be alarmed by that temp. During your 2WW, your temps will be significantly higher than during your follicular phase.
