BBT during Pregnancy

Hello Ladies,
I was just wondering. I have been BBT during my whole cycle and now since we are pregnant I am not sure what should my BBT be. I know that my cover line BBT is 97.3 and my BBT after OVL has been 98.2 or 98.3. Can my BBT fluctuate during pregnancy or should it be steady at one point. Should I be concern If by any chance my BBT starts jumping between 97.5 to 98.3 or as long as it stays over the cover line 97.3 it is ok? Thanks a lot and please use it as Open Forum for TODAY! Baby dust to you all!

Hi there,
BBT's mean nothing after you become pg.  It only causes you needless stress by continuing to monitor it.  Pack that thermometer away.  :-)

That is what I think will happen! It is stupid of me to even keep it around. Just more to stress about! Thanks

You can continue to temp during the first few weeks of pregnancy.  It is a good way to determine if you are experiencing a m/c.  Your temps may flucuate during pregnancy, but they should stay above the coverline.  It's only if you see them continue to decline that you should worry.  Again, this is only useful during the first few weeks of pregnancy.  I temped until about 6 weeks, then stopped.  It can be stressful b/c when your temp goes down a bit then you start to worry.  It's just a personal choice on whether you decide to do it or not. HTH.

My temp fluctuated a lot, and never really got as high as I thought it should have, so I was a wreck worrying about another miscarriage.

I quit taking my temp, and I'm now 22 weeks.

Thanks Amy. That makes me feel ok. I was starting to worry this morning. I will put it away and whatever happens, will happen. It is not worth the stress to take BBT in the morning and thinking-is it too low or hight enought?!
