   I Had what I thought was implantation spotting nearly 4 weeks ago. I started taking my BBT again after several negative HPTs but no AF. In my past pregnancies I've tested strongly positive before AF, so I don't expect things would be different now.


 After temping for a little over a week, my temps have ranged from 97.3 at the lowest and the last 4 days at around 98.1. Thats a big range that seems relatively high for me. In the past, my pre-O BBTs are usually in the high 96's and my cover line hovers around 97.3-ish.   Its tough to tell if I O'd, because I have had many days with EWCM that just seem so random.  


I have inconsistent wake times (between 6-7:30am) and co-sleep/nurse my toddler.  I've had 3 ppAF's which seemed very regular and normal, and then this happens to throw me for a loop!  should i be concerned or is this just normal stuff since i'm nursing still.  Maybe I just have to have better consistency with temping times?

I do not know about the temps as I've just started temping myself but I have just had my 3rd PP AF cycle and it was strange, spotting for a few days and early (8dpo) so I also thought it was IB but has turned out to be an odd cycle as my body tries to regain fertility I think. Putting it out there so you know that it certainly happens. I do not know about the higher temp though. I say as hard as it is, just take another test in a few days. I've had three babies and each time I've been able to get a + HPT at different times (like for tow of them 14 dpo and 19 dpo), so it is possible. Good Luck!
