Yes, this is totally normal. There is an estrogen surge, around 7dpo, which will often give you a temp drop, and also will cause renewed ferning. A good (although technical) explanation about all the cycle hormones, including this surge, is at <a href="http://www.endotext.org/female/female3/female3.htm" target="_blank">http://www.endotext.org/female/female3/female3.htm</a><br><br>
If you do get ferns again around the time your period is due, you could be pregnant. Although I do have a friend who did get them every month, even if not pregnant, so no garantuees. But it will keep you busy obsessing :) The best thing would be to figure out your own personal ferning cycle, so you know what you can expect.<br><br>
Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br><br>

Karen- thank you so much for your response, the article was very helpful- i couldnt find anything like that when i searched online! this makes sense as today i have EWM too, i looked it up in TCOYF and it too mentioned the second rise in estrogen, so now i dont feel so darn crazy! thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
