What brand thermometer do you have? I think its a bit odd that its giving you the same temperarture all week even at night.

I think that’s really odd too. My temperature has never been the exact same thing two days in a row, it’s always at least a little different. And at night it’s always different than my normal wake-up temperature. I’d probably try out a different thermometer and see if it gives you different results.

I would have said it was odd in the past, but this month I’ve gotten 4 of the same temps in a row and today it changed.  I guess I would wait a little while to see if it changes. I’ve also seen on FF a number of charts where women’s temps plateaued some where through out the month. 

And just to make sure, you’re temping before you roll around, turn on the light, anything, right?  🙂

I think it’s odd. Mine is rarely the same even an hour apart – like if I roll over and go back to sleep and then take it again when I wake up, it’s different.

I think it’s odd too.  However, I’ve had the same temps two days in a row but never for this long.  Another option is to take your temperature vaginally, but once you do that you want to use that termometer only there.  Don’t switch back and forth.

I’ve had the same temp for 3 days in a row, so I don’t think it would be impossible to have it 7 in a row. Just keep waiting! (Or- are your cycles normally longer than 28-30 days? I’m sure you know this since you’ve read TCOYF, but if so, you may have to wait a bit longer to see the big spike!)

I’ve had the same temp like 5 times in a row.  I don’t think it’s totally normal, but it can happen.

While you guys are talking about charting- may I ask what types of temp ranges you have?  Mine seemed really low, so much so that I thought about buying a new thermometer just in case mine is old and the battery is about to go…

@DaneLady: Mine are really low. They start in the 96s, move to the mid to high 97s after O and have only been over 98 when I’m on extra progesterone pills to supplement.

@Running Elley: Thanks.  Mine was just under 96… but to clarify we are TTA.  I need to be more consistent with actually waking up enough to take my temp without waking up my FI- apparently I am a bad charter 🙁

I don’t think it’s TOO odd, simply because that’s usually how my charts look. Pre O I typically have 7 or 8 days of the same exact temp. On occasion it will only be 5 or 6 of the same, but you get the idea.

@DaneLady: My temps are also on the lower end. I’m usually at 96 pre O and anywhere from 97.6 and to 98.0 after O.

To clarify, I think it’s odd that your BBT isn’t any different from your end of the day temp. I don’t think it’s necessarily odd to have the same temp a few mornings in a row.

My temps are kinda low too… usually between 96.4-96.8 early in my cycle and 97.2-97.9 after. I am always cold, so I do plan on asking my doctor about this.
