Hi Evie's Mama,
Some womens temps jump around but you have to take some other things into account.
Is the temp in your room consistent? Do you sleep with your mouth open? (possibly congested type thing) Did you happen to have the covers stolen from you in the middle of the night??
My temps were very "peaky" a couple of months ago, and I think it had to do with the fan in our room being set to auto... it would turn on and off according to the temp.. but now, my temps are very consistent. Almost flat.
But bottom line, I think everyone is different and what is normal for you might not be for someone else. And ultimately, the only way to see what normal is for you is to keep charting
