temp drop today :S

Be brutally honest, what are your opinions about a temp drop like this?

We were going to announce this pregnancy to the kids and our parents this weekend. Now I'm wondering if we should wait a couple more days to see what my temp does, or if I m/c. I'm really trying not to worry. We didn't go to bed until about 4am, and I was FREEZING all night. But then I wonder if that would make that much difference...

I'm fairly new to charting so I don't know. I looked up other preg charts on ff but that didn't show much since most charts stop once someone gets a bfp. I would think the fact that you had different circumstances the night before the readin could affect it but I'm not sure. Did you take your temp at the reg time? I really hope it's a normal thing and that someone else can give a better answer. Until then, praying everything is ok!

I was looking at other charts too, of course I looked at charts that ended in m/c... dumb idea, lol. However, I do feel a little better after comparing to my own chart from last month. I am still well above my coverline. Last month when my temp dipped right before AF, it dropped below the cl. That's good, right? I'm thinking I'll hold off the announcing til tomorrow, and see what happens.

Yep, I always thought a drop below the coverline was something to worry about. I'm sure everything is fine but I understand your decision to hold off on announcing. I think tomorrow's temp will tell you more and then you can spread your good news Smile

Temps can really mess with our heads, can't they? :eek: Just my opinion here...If you went to bed at a different time from the usual, got up and temped at a different time (even after a similar amount of sleep) and you felt cold all night, I really wouldn't stress from just that temp. Temps can go all over the place, and can be impacted by so many different factors. Your temps have been jumping up and down quite a bit since your BFP anyway, and you are still well above your coverline. I can't tell you if you should or shouldn't tell family since that is a pretty personal decision, but I wouldn't base your decision on just that temp. :goodluck:

...and it's back up today! The more I read yesterday, the better I felt. So, we decided to go ahead and tell them. I put together a slideshow w pics of us, and the kids. At the end was a pic of the +test. Everyone was very happy! (...Except my SIL who's been TTC for about 6 years. My heart breaks for her Sad ....)
