Temp...... 99.0!!!!

Category: Two Week Wait - Symptoms
Posted by cjpalaska » Feb. 1, 2011 1:47pm

So I have always had a low body temp.... even when I was little and I had a fever my temp was always 98.6 with a fever..... and usually 97.6 normal for me; I took my temp this AM and it was 98.2 which it has been for a few days- I just took it now after sitting for about an hour after work and it is 99.0!!! And I am not sick with anything!

Is this a good sign perhaps????

I would say it is but you should really test in the morning when your body has been at a full rest for 3 hours or more. I know how you feel about getting your hopes up with all the signs but just let it take its course for now. One of my friends who just got pregnant did bbt charting and her temp was always in the 97's and then when she was pregnant it was in the 99's,but she didnt get a postive on her hpt until being 7 days late for her period so that should give you some more hope!

have you gotten a 99 before this? Did you get a bfn or bfp? I still got a bfn today ...... so the waiting continues..... are you still in for this month then?

I wish I could get your high temps!! My normal body temp is only 96.98 so I have no chance - I hope it is a good sign for you

What is this BBT chart about ?
Follicular phase
Before a woman ovulates, the basal body temperatures range from around 97.0 to 97.5 degrees Fahrenheit (36.1 to 36.3 Celcius). This is due to the presence of estrogen, which keeps temps down. Temperatures will vary from person to person, but should stay below your coverline.
( Coverline shown on the sample chart as red __ __ __ dashed line )
Luteal phase
Once ovulation has occurred, the temps go up to a new, higher level, usually ranging from around 97.6 to 98.9 F ( 36.4 to 36.6 C ).The day after ovulation, the temp generally jumps up by at least 0.2 degrees F ( 0.11 degrees C ), and then continues to rise somewhat. This increase in temperature is caused by the progesterone released from the follicle after ovulation.

It will become apparent after a few days that it is in a new, higher range. The temps themselves will continue to rise and dip day by day, but will remain in the higher range. ( Above your coverline )

The actual temperatures are less important than noting a pattern showing two levels of temperatures. If there is no pregnancy, then your temperature will stay elevated for 10 - 16 days, until the corpus luteum regresses. At this time, progesterone levels drop dramatically and you get your period. Your temperature normally drops at this time as well, though it is not unusual to have erratic or high temperatures during your period.

If your Basal Body Temperature remains elevated for 18 days or more after ovulation, you should probably test for pregnancy.

thanks sara that helps a ton; but I don't think the temp. thing helps me much since I do opk and by the time your temp stays risen long enough to tell if your pregnant then you probably would get a positive preg. test so I don't know if it really helps at all.....

My temperature has been low for a few days now like as low as 95.3 and the highest 96. What does that mean?
