So i’m working in celcius – i appologize if this is confusing for people – it’s the only thermometer I could get at the drug store here.
I started temping on CD7 it was 36.15 at 6:30am – 3 days within 15 minutes were 36.15/36.12/36.20 then CD11 was 36.38 at 8:35am. Was that an ovulation spike or should I through it out? I missed day 12 and today at CD13 at 6:15am it was 36.09
I also have fairly regular 28-30 day cycles and always have on and off BC.

MsGinkgo: I wouldn’t throw it out just yet. I would keep temping and see how your temps go the next few days. If they stay low, then you can discard it if you would like. Even if you don’t discard it, I don’t see it being an issue. Though if it gave you crosshairs because of the high temp and you clearly didn’t ovulate that day, then you can discard it.

MiJeS1104: Don’t have crosshairs at the moment – we’ll see what happens. I slept in on Saturday, usually i still wake up at 6:15/30 and roll over go back to sleep, that didn’t happen this week so I don’t know if the 2 hours screwed something up or what.

MsGinkgo: I was going to say that you’re lucky that your temps are in a general ball park! I just started temping this month (I’m on CD 5) and my temps are all over the place. So far, I have: 36.12, 36.32, 35.82, 36.09 and 36.15
I have consistently taken temp at 6am each day and it feels like my chart looks like a roller coaster. People say that it will make more sense as you go along, but right now it just looks so up and down and difficult to interpret!

MsGinkgo: That’s most likely the reason why it’s higher.

Can we see a link to your chart? Numbers are hard to visualize. 🙂
My chart is all over the place as well (http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/jammer62) I don’t think it’s anything to worry about… especially for your first month charting.
