“usually when temps are high it means you are pregnant”

 

NO NO NO! lol, High temps simply mean you ovulated! Now, if you should be on your period and your period doesn’t come AND THEN your temps REMAIN high… it’s a sign of pregnancy. A week after your cycle however don’t stress.

Because it’s only been 3-5 days since your period ended and you only have 3 temps to go on i wouldn’t worry. It may be that your baseline is higher. It takes a few cycles to really get used to what your true patterns are. Don’t forget, you need to read all your signs together too, so your CM tells you the story about approaching ovulation and the end of ovulation… your temp just confirms for you in essence. 

Whether you are charting to achieve or avoid pregnancy, you can’t rely on temp alone.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions!

Like KLP said, you can’t base any conclusions off of those temperatures alone. What you need to look for is a rise in conjunction with changes in cervical mucus, which together signal ovulation. It could be that you are ovulating now, or it could be that you just have a higher baseline. You can’t know yet because you don’t have even temps to establish a baseline (you need at least 6). Regardless, as long as your sleeping conditions are consistent, it doesn’t matter whether the heater is on. And it definitely doesn’t matter for your temps that you’re working out the night before :). I’m sure everything is fine, just give yourself a little longer to get used to the method.

Like the others, I say just give yourself some time to gather more data and get used to temping.  The heater and whatnot shouldn’t matter as long as you are consistent from night to night.  My temp range doesn’t change based on the season.

One thing I have read is that temps out of the standard range can be indicators of thyroid problems (low temps=hypothyroidism, high temps=hyperthyroidism).  If your temps over a few cycles seem consistently higher, it might be worth checking in with your doctor, and it only takes a simple blood test to check your thyroid function.

@JustLikeHeaven: Thanks! Also, I meant to type “you don’t have enough temps to establish a baseline” in my post above, not “even temps.” Feel free to PM me if you ever have questions.

I don’t know if I consider that a temp shift.  My temps go from 97.1/97.3 to 97.9 after I ovulate.
