I have a question about my chart that I am hoping someone can answer. I'm a little worried because I'm 4dpo and my temp has dropped slightly below the coverline. Furthermore, it also dropped yesterday (though not below the coverline).

What does this mean? Is it possible to be pregnant under these conditions?

Thanks so much.

It could mean that you didn't O where you thought you did and your temp is going back down for that reason. Maybe you geared up but didn't O? If it stays under the coverline for a few days then ff will probably take your CH away. Hope that isn't the case though. I can't think of too many other reasons off the top of my head but I am sure others will add them if they can think of them. It is possible that it is an implantation dip or a dip from a hormone surge but if your temp was already on the way back down at 3dpo then it sounds more like you might not have actually O'd. Do you have a link to your chart? It is hard to work it out without seeing it. More temps will tell you what the go is though, you may just have to wait it out.

Have you charted many cycles? I've found over time that mine are always all over the place, lots of dips before and after ovulation. The cycle when I conceived my son was that way, and I was much more consistent with my temping then! But as pp pointed out, it could also be a later o than expected and you may just have to wait and see.
