For those of you who charted while TTC, can you please share what your average temps were after ovulating before your next period versus what your average temps were when you got pregnant? Is there a difference between that those of us charting should look for on our charts?

Because I’m a tiny bit of a hoarder (not in that crazy tv show kind of way), I thought I could just go grab my charts leading up to conceiving (I just used paper ones). Can’t find them. But I don’t recall my change in temps being any different. The highs just lasted longer after conceiving.

Supposedly there is sometimes a temp dip when implantation occurs (if I remember it usually would be about 7 DPO) but my chart didn’t really see that when I did get pregnant. Usually my average temps post-ovulation climbed for about 2 to 3 days and then stayed around 97.8 (pre-ovulation was ususally around 96.8). For me, by 11 DPO my temp was starting to drop in prep for the cycle to start again but when I did get a positive it dipped on 10 DPO to 97.3 but popped back up the next day to to average temps of 97.8.
I don’t know that I was able to give you an answer to your question since fertilityfriend.com said that some people show a triphasic pattern when they get pregnant but mine certainly didn’t. I think even the charting is still very individual.

I don’t have my charts on hand right now but I do remember that my chart was triphasic, and that was my first indication that I was pregnant. Mine was similar to the triphasic chart modeled in TCOYF, although my third temp shift was a bit more subtle than the one in the book.

From what I remember, when I became pregnant, my temp just stayed high with ovulation increase and didn’t drop like normal afterward.

I’m not much help: I stopped temping and charting the day we concieved because I “just knew” I was pregnant. 🙂

My temperatures were no different than a normal month, except that they stayed elevated rather than dropping as they would before a period. I did start to get some slightly higher temperatures here and there (by about 0.1 or 0.2 degrees), but that didn’t start until well after my missed period. As pointed out by others, you might see a triphasic pattern, however, I did not, and from what I understand, a lot of women won’t.
