This is my first post, but I've enjoyed reading along - I've been charting waking temps for two months now since starting TTC #2 and they've been really low - under 97 before the shift and now just over 97.5 Is this strange?
Actually your basal temp is lower than your reg body temp. PP is right that thyroid or progesterone deficiencies will cause lower than avg body temps also. My BBT is right around 96.0. My guess is that yours is very normal.
