confused? drop in temp day after spike??

Postby bostonbirde » Tue Jul 19, 2011 6:33 am

Has this happened to anyone? Had a dip on day 13 to 96.9 the went up to 98.2 on day 14. Now today is day 15 and I went down to 97.7.
So confused? 97.7 is like my norm. Is this a good sign or is this month a bust already??
OR was that a false spike?

Any thoughts? Any experience with this?

Wait a couple days and look at the pattern. Sometimes I will ovulate and my temp will spike, then do the same as yours. It's sometimes called a "fall back rise". Like I said, wait a few days to see if there's an upward trend. Good luck!

Do you use an online charting system? Fertility Friend is a GREAT website! :) You should check it out if not. I have a link in my siggy if you'd like!

I agree w/ pp. Definitely sounds like it could be a fallback rise. It appears as though you may have had a pre-O dip, then O spike, then your temp fell, and now you will most likely see it start rising again (fallback rise) like acceptgodlove said. I have only been charting a few months now since we decided to start try for #2 and I now see a distinct fallback rise pattern w/ my cycles. Check out my fallback rises in my last few cycles.
