Triggers and Temps

Yesterday, I had my 1st IUI at 11:00 AM.  I triggered Thursday morning at 1:00 AM.  I have been temping for almost a year and it's become a part of my TTC routine.  My question is, does BBT still "work" with triggering?  My temp spiked yesterday morning.  But this morning it's back down to a pre-O temp.  WTH!?!  Chart stalk if you'd like.  DH told me to quit temping because it's going to cause unneeded stress.  For those of you that trigger, do you temp anymore?  I'm just worried I didn't O....even though I know I must have.  On CD 14 my u/s showed two mature follies, one 22 and one 18.

On a side note...very proud of DH S yesterday for the IUI.  He had 96 million!  Plus his morph on his last SA went from 5% to 14%.  I thought my RE was lying to us, but she swore it was real.  DH has been taking Fertil-Aid for a few months and I truly believe it's making a difference.  Just wanted to pass on that info.

    I stopped temping once I started meds--it messed with my temps..  I'm monitored so it isn't necessarily.

    I still chart with clomid and trigger. I know it stresses some people out but for me I like to know if something funky is happening. I also like to know if I am most likely getting my AF and be prepared for a BFN. I don't think the trigger messes the BBT b/c its been pretty consistent for me but I could be wrong. Its a good question to ask the RE though. Good Luck this cycle!

    I'm not familiar with triggers and temps but I just wanted to add a little something.  I always try to remember that "stress" itself plays such an important role in your body and affects temps sometimes too.  That is all. Wink
