Sometimes charting is very reassuring, and sometimes it is just maddening. I think you'll need to see another day of temps at least before you can begin to conclude what is going on.<br><br>
One chart pattern which is fairly uncommon, but completely normal and well documented, is called a fall-back rise. After a temp rise signaling Ovulation, the next day it falls back, and then rises again the next day and continues to climb.<br><br>
Unfortunately, you can't conclude too much just from one temperature (I'm so good at giving this advice and so bad at taking it!!)<br><br>
If you can, keep BDing until your temp rise is sustained for at least a few days.

BTW - I don't know if you've ever tried this, or if you are currently using it... but fertility friend is free online software that can help you make sense of your temps. I've learned so much using their website.<br><br><a href="http://www.fertilityfriend.com" target="_blank">www.fertilityfriend.com</a>
