Q: 8 dpo and temp is 98.90

Do you know what causes a temperature like that? I take my temps at the same time every morning. I ovulated on Aug 3rd and my temps have been going up everyday since. here are my temps: 98.04, 98.18, 98.34, 98.48, 98.34, 98.48, 98.62, 98.75, and 98.90. I'm not sure how long my luteal phase is..I assume 12 because I have always monitored my period when they start and stop. When do the temps start to go down if no pregnancy?

Sounds promising! At least you know that your progesterone level is high, so if you did conceive, there's a good chance it would stick! I think usually temps start to drop a day or so before you get your period if you are not in fact pregnant (because the progesterone level drops, causing your body to shed the uterine lining), but I have seen mine stay higher into my period too. Try testing in a couple of days. TWW is the worst, analyzing every little temp shift and symptom you feel! Good luck!

That could be a great sign, although it is not certain. Some women see a triphasic pattern on their BBT chart when pregnant, however this is not a definite sign as some women who became pregnant do not have a triphasic pattern. For me however (currently 4 weeks 6 days pregnant) my temp spiked up around 8-9 DPO just like you. It was in the 99ish range and I ended up getting a BFP at 11DPO. My temp remained 99ish and is still above the coverline as of date. Sounds very promising. Hope you get your BFP and try not to test until at least 11-12DPO. GL.
