Hi Ladies - I'm new to this board - 2 early m/c since May and 5w along tomorrow - so VERY nervous. I'm kind of looking for anything that will either differentiate this pregnany or signal another oncoming m/c. So, here's my question. I temped while we ttc'd and told myself once we got pregnant again I would stop temping as soon as I got my bfp. Of course, I'm a bit addicted to temping and so I have not. I'm 20 dpo today and am still temping - I was planning to stop tomorrow, but this morning my temp took a bit of a dive (it has been pretty steady between 98.2-98.4) to 97.7. My typical day before my period starts is 97.7 and then it usually drops to 97.2 the day my period starts.

I'm trying not to freak out - I've heard that temps can sometimes fluctuate while you're pregnant, so I'm wondering if any of your have experienced a temp dip and still went on to have a healthy pregnancy (or heard of this happening) - or whether you all did what you were supposed to and stopped temping once you got your bfp? Just curious...

Our C-section is scheduled for Feb 16th! Then we'll know whether Baby Bennett is a BOY or a GIRL!!!

I took my temp for a few weeks after my BFP. On thing I did do was to switch to vaginal temping. I know it sounds yucky, but I found there were a lot less dives that made my heart drop temping vaginally.
Just so you know, for my miscarriage, my temps were very steady and with this pregnancy, my temps were pretty much all over the place, so I think after a while, temps don't matter as much.
Good luck!

I kept on temping for a few weeks after I got my BFP and my highest temp was 36.8 and lowest was 36.1 so far everything is going well in this pregnancy.

I continued taking my temps after my BFP and I would recommend against it. My temperature dropped for a few days and I was completely freaked out for no reason at all. I posted about it in the November DDC at the time. Don't worry if your temps went down a bit. I think your temperature flactuates when you are pregnant.
