Anyone still temping?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am a bit obsessed and am still taking my temp in the am. My question is this - does anyone else have an abnormally high temperature? M normal is 97 degrees, but I have been ~99 degrees since I found out I was pg. At first, I thought it was because I was sick, but now I am not really sick but my temps are still high?!?

I've been occasionally itching to temp just to make sure it's still up there, but I'd really rather try to sleep in (so far no luck! ) I stopped temping around 22-23 dpo, as my confidence rose that this one's a sticky.

I think 99 is fine, really.

I've been wondering about this - when others stopped temping. So far, I still am - in obsessive, is-it-still-up-there mode - but I'm only 15dpo... I want to stop & not have to think about it anymore, but I feel like if I don't check, something will go wrong and I won't know it.... Maybe once I get a little more confidant that the little bean's going to stick...

I'm still temping, and I'm also still obsessed ;-). I'm not sure how much longer it's an indicator, but continued elevated temps = pregnancy! I keep meaning to look that up. I feel pathetic about this, but I need all the reassurance I can get.

I am still temping, not every day, but every other. I have taken 3 hcg tests, too. A bit OC, but it makes me feel more confident.

I would keep temping, especially if you're concerned about m/c. I stopped temping as soon as I got the BFP, then m/c and wished I had continued temping for at least another week, for reassurance if nothing else. If it's still high in the morning, you can pretty much rest easy the rest of the day. I still ocassionally get the urge to temp just so I don't have to worry that day.

Guess I'm the odd mama out. : I stopped temping the day I got the no-doubt-about-it positive test. I did continue to temp for a while with my first pregnancy, but I just haven't felt like bothering with this one. I did over-buy on the pregnancy tests. I have 2 digital ones in my bathroom that I'm itching to take (I've never used one before and they just seem so very *definite*!) .... I'll probably use one this weekend, just so I can take a picture of it!

i'm still temping because i--- well, i don't know-- i guess i want to get at least 18 high temps before i feel secure in stopping-- i'm still above the coverline (14dpo) but i dipped again this a.m. and it's got me very very nervous: my temps have been on the lower side until i started the natural progesterone cream(and still not as high as alot i've seen) and you can see the highest temp on my chart reflects the morning after i started using it-- i'm continuing using it thru my 2nd trimester

I'm still temping every morning- I'm at 21 DPO. In addition, I'm still taking a PT every morning with FMU..... thank God for Dollar Tree tests! Last time I went to the Dollar Tree, I bought 12 at one time. I stacked them up neatly for the cashier...I guess it did look kind of funny. This grandmother-type was the cashier and when she saw them to start ringing me up, she said..."Oh! Want to make sure, huh?" She wished me luck as I was leaving.

I'll probably continue temping and taking a PT until I start getting some real symptoms (nausea is the main one, which I don't have...yet) and/or once I see a midwife for confirmation and prenatal care...that'll make it "seriously real", I guess!

If I was "an old pro", I'm sure I'd stop temping as soon as I get the BFP, but this is my first pregnancy, so it's all really new to me!
