Hello everyone I have been lurking on the forum for a while now so I guess it's time to introduce myself.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I am 27 and my husband is 29 and we don't have any kids yet but are very excited about trying to conceive are first child this year.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> My husband and I tried to conceive for the first time this month May 2, and May 4 2007. I had ovulation pains that whole week. Sat May 5, I had very light spotting. Sun May 6, my breasts were swollen and heavy. I started having very mild cramps On May 10, and I still have them every once in a while now. The cramps are in my lower abs area. I have had a very very mild case of nausea a couple times this week and last week. I took a pregnancy test yesterday May 17, and it was negative. I took my BBT today and it was 97.25. Is it possible to be pregnant with a temperature that low??? I have not been charting my temps yet but I'm going to start tomorrow. I'm going to wait until next month to take the pregnancy test again. I'll appreciate any advice and information you ladies can give. Thanks in advance.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

Hi<br>
I'm not very knowledgeable, however, I think it is very hard to make temp judgements on one temperature. You need to examine the pattern over your cycle. Many many things can affect your temp making it higher or lower then 'normal' (especially if you don't know what your normal is) even after ovulation when temps are usually higher. Also, it can take a while for some women to get a postive pregnancy test.<br>
Anyway, I hope that helps!

I've been pregnant twice since I started charting, and my temperatures rarely pass the 97 mark, pregnant or not (literally- I've had two days of temperatures that high). The only consistent sign of pregnancy is if your temperatures stay high for 18 days or more.

Thank you Gillian28 and Flapjack for the quick responses. I just had my first real case of nausea last night. I got up around 2:00 am to get a mid night snack and after I ate it I had a deep wave of nausea before I got to the stairs. I also felt a little dizzy. I had to stop and sit down on the stairs and breath deep for about 5 mins before the nausea went away and I could go up the stairs. The rest of the night I had cramping and a slight nausea feeling. I had a little nausea this morning but not as bad as last nights episode. I have never been so excited about having nausea before.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I hope with all this signs that I'm really pregnant.
