BBT Temp Low???

Hi Everyone,
I have been tracking my BBT for a month or two and I have noticed from other trackers that my BBT is kind of low. Let me explain a bit. Before I ovulate I'm hanging out right around 96.6 ish. When I ovulate I spike to about 97.5ish. I have notice that most woman are hanging out almost a degree higher before ovulation at 97.5ish and at a peek in the 98 degree area. I guess my question is, is it ok to have a lower BBT temp? Maybe I'm doing something wrong. If someone could look at my BBT chart and let me know what you think that would be awesome. :) Thanks all.

Hi there i just looked at your chart,i wouldnt worry about other womens temps,they do vary,however im not sure i agree with your chart that you ovulated,i dont see a clear thermal shift as of yet..are you taking your temps the same time each morning before getting out of bed..

yup. Every morning before I'm even awake I check my BBT. How will I know there is a shift? I'm confused! Thanks.

Hi if you look at my chart im pregnant now,but you can see the shift,this is when i ovulated cd18..although ovulation tests are good,they are not as reliable as charting,as you can see it gave me positives after my temp shift,basically when you have ovulated,your post o temps will be higher than pre o temps.

Copy and past this link it will show you a typical chart example,but dont assume your temps should be the same not the case,everyone has different body temps,for myself if i leave the window open,my temp will be down,here is the link..
