Re: Low bbt, thyroid? Waiting to ttc?

Huh, weird. I don't think that I've EVER averaged 98 or higher. The only time I've had my thyroid checked was at my prenatal bloodwork with this current pregnancy, and I came back with an "almost" underactive thyroid, but not underactive enough to need medication. My charts are in my signature from over six years ago, now I'm curious to go look at them, lol.

ETA: The several most recent charts have a pre-O range of 97.0 to 97.5 and a post-O range of 97.5 to 98.0, so yeah, there's no way I'll average higher than 98.
