I was going to ignore yesterday's temp drop at 4 DPO. I had a restless night with my teething, co-sleeping toddler. But then it went down a bit again today. I can't help feeling this is a bad thing--even though the temps didn't officially go below coverline.

It's too early for implantation (I o'd in the wee a.m. hours, so my DPO is probably closer to 4 not 5). It also seems too late for a fall back pattern. And it's too early for AF returning. So what does it mean. My head keeps telling me a pg. chart would not do that. I read in TCOYF about a second estrogen surge that can cause a temp drop after O, but they showed that later, too--like 7-8 days.

Anyone else see this with their temps?

Well, I don't know what it means, but I'm showing the same thing right now. Yesterday at 4 DPO my temps dropped almost to coverline, and this morning at 5 DPO it dropped .3 degrees BELOW coverline! :

Like you, I don't think it's a good sign for this chart either. I guess I will just wait and hope they go back up tomorrow.
