@rosworms:  it sounds like your thermometer has a case of the favorites. you can still see your temp shift, so I wouldn’t worry too much. Consider upgrading thermometers if it bugs you though 🙂

two extra things are contributing to your flat graphs, beyond the temps themselves – your thermometer looks like it only measures to 0.1, which always makes graphs looks flatter, and the fact that you have that dotted line between days 10-14. CD9 is a white dot too, so if that was done at the correct time/in right conditions it might have been different. As Chuck said, as long as you can see ovulation its not too big a deal.

And regarding your other question, 97.3 looks about right for the first two days post-O compared to your previous chart, it’s sort of an average of the two last cycle 🙂

All the best!!

I haven’t bought a basal thermometer yet for charting, but I thought you were supposed to use one that measured to the 1/100th of a degree instead of just a tenth?

@strawbabies:  I think TCOYF says that a 1/10th thermometer is okay, but most use a 1/100th thermom. There’s a big difference between 97.3 and 97.39 or 97.31 and the 1/10th ones aren’t as accurate anyway.
