Temp drop?

Hey mamas. Is this normal? Don't ask me why I'm still temping. Having a miscarriage in the past will so that to ya. I know its not a huge dip, but before my period it always dips slightly's my chart..
Thank my Motorola Electrify for any random words.

Wouldnt worry and would stop charting. I know the experience of the miscarry can make you analyze every detail, but I dont think your chart is going to be the first sign of a miscarriage. Isnt it your progesterone that makes your temp high? My progesterone varied throughout my first trimester and once had a 10 point drop. 14 weeks today and my baby is doing just fine.

Hopefully someone with pregnancy charting experience can chime in, but I really wouldnt worry about the temp drop.

It is highly recommended that you stop temping after a positive test. Your hormones will fluctuate greatly and temping will only stress you out. Fwiw I got a bfp at 9dpo and the next day had a huge drop well below cover line. That was my clue to stop! Things are fine here at almost 17 weeks. All the best.

Plus your "drop" is still so incredibly high above your cover! No worries.

I had temp drops for a few days (while waiting for the blood test results) and decided that was enough temping. I was just making myself crazy analyzing every .2 drop or rise
