I am. I am 14 DPO today and have continued to take temps since I got a BFP on 11 DPO. I have read conflicting opinions on this: some say that continuously high BBTs confirm a healthy pregnancy, others say that this is a waste of time and will only drive a pregnant woman crazy if there is a slight drop in BBTs. So I think I find temping reassuring while BBTs are high but if they go down, I would be very concerned. What do other charters think about this? Thanks!

I'm temping and I think I'm going to keep doing it for a while. I'm 14 dpo and today developed a mild backache that is freaking me OUT. But my temp was up this morning, which is really the only thing that's comforting me. (You probably aren't miscarrying when your temp goes up, right?? I hope so...)

I think I'll keep temping for at least another week. Or maybe until I get some strong morning sickness!

Me! I'm still temping. My temps are ridiculously high, so at this point it's like a game for me. But I know that it could easily drive me crazy, so I may stop soon. We'll see. This whole cycle has been about doing what I feel at the time (not telling myself I will or won't test by a certain day, etc.) so if I feel like I want to keep temping, I will... if I all of a sudden decide I'm sick of it, I'll stop.

Lol. Totally not a woman with a plan these days!

Boxcar, don't be freaked out by a backache. A friend of mine had severe backache at the beginning of her pregnancy, and she is now 6 months pregnant. I know this is anecdotal evidence but I don't think you have anything to worry about with regard to the backache.
