Pregnant after a Loss

When did you stop temping?

I was thinking about tommorrow being my last day to check my bbt. I'm hesitant and wonder when everyone else made the decision to stop. I have never gone longer than cd32 with out a temp drop. I have had two bfp and I think my chart looks triphasic.

I guess I know I'm pregnant, it has just become so routine & feels odd to just quit. Is it silly to keep temping to look for a drop as a predictor to a m/c??? Did you do anything instead to take its place early on? Your thoughts much appreciated.

Re: When did you stop temping?

  • I stopped as soon as I got my BFP. Your temps will flucuate in pregnancy and it will just cause you more stress watching them go up and down.

  • I think I stopped 3 or 4 days after my BFP (char in siggy).

    It felt weird to stop for me to, but after a day or two, I enjoyed the sleep. If you keep temping, your temps may fluctuate and you will lose your mind with unnecessary worry. 

    Oh, and congratulations!

  • You should stop now.  I kept temping for a couple days, and I had a HUGE temp drop 2 days after my BFP that really freaked me out.  After that I decided to stop.  Of course, I'm still here and everything is fine so far, so that temp drop didn't mean anything.

    I stopped right away. Being newly pregnant you have enough to stress about, don't give yourself additional stress purposely.

  • I stopped pretty much after my BFP b/c I wasn't temping on the weekend and I got my BFP on New Year's Eve and didn't want to deal with temping that weekend.  Its hard, but I decided to just let go and enjoy this pregnancy (which hasn't been easy).  Congrats on the BFP!!

  • This morning was the 1st time I didn't temp and I'm 20 DPO.  I wanted to wait until I had at least 18 temps above the coverline.   I may or may not temp again.  lol

  • The morning I got my BFP was the last morning I temped.  You'll find plenty of other things to worry about - quit the temping :)

  • I don't plan on temping once I get a BFP because with my missed miscarriage my temps stayed high. So I think I will just worry to much. Today you are pregnant.
