I got my BFP yesterday and I’m seriously considering quitting my thermometer unless something comes up/goes wrong with the pregnancy. Part of it is because I don’t want to worry if my temperature goes down by a teensy bit and I don’t want to over-analyze. I’m also getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night so often already that it feels like getting an accurate temperature just won’t work for much longer.
So, if you charted, how long did you continue to take your temperature? Did you never stop?

I stopped right away. I didn’t the last time, and I wish I had.

Yay!! Huge congrats on your BFP! I hope this baby is super sticky!! I stopped temping as soon as I got my BFP, and I’m glad I did. In My Humble Opinion continuing to temp will only increase any anxiety about the health of your pregnancy if your temperature starts to drop at all. (My temperature actually did drop somewhat on the day I got my BFP, and here I am 8 months later with a wonderful sticky baby.)

Okay, I’m officially quitting the thermometer. Just texted DH and told him to hide it from me before I get home from work 🙂

Horray for you! I am so excited for your BFP. I stopped temping a few days in. It’s freedom from thermometer time! Good plan on getting DH to hide it. Congrats again! Enjoy!

OMG congrats! I didn’t know you got a BFP!! I kept temping for a few days but was driving myself nuts so I stopped. *Sticky baby dust* to you! 🙂

Wait. What? CONGRATS!!!!
I think I stopped temping about a week or two so I voted 18 DPO.

Ack, congrats! I actually clicked on this thread to see if you were asking hypothetically or because you’d gotten a BFP, and here you are!
I temped for probably another couple of weeks, and when my doctor found out about it, she told me to flush it down the toilet if I had to, or else she was going to tell my husband to take it away from me.
It was really hard for the first few days I didn’t do it, but continuing to take it was even worse. You made the right call!
Praying for the stickiest of all sticky babies for you.

@Running Elley: Oooh!! A BFP?!! Congrats!! I’m thrilled for you! 🙂
As for me, I kept temping for about a week and a half post-BFP…probably just out of habit. Then I realized I was being ridiculous, and I stopped! HAha. 🙂

I stopped immediately–didn’t want to have to stress and worry about it. Congrats to you! 🙂

I temped until 18DPO as per TCOYF and every now and then I take my temp in the afternoon when I get home from work…. It’s like a bad habit I just can’t shake!

I temped everyday until about 20 dpo to make sure it wasn’t a chemical, then I temped every once in awhile until I reached the point where I had miscarried previously, after that I stopped. So happy for you Elley!!!!

I stopped as soon as I got a BFP. Step away from the thermometer … it’ll just stress you out! Think of it as a perk to being pregnant, you can sleep in without worrying about taking your temp every morning!
And CONGRATULATIONS!!! Sticky dust!!!
