Hey everyone!!!! please help I am very concerned with my basal temperature. Here is the deal I started taking my basal temperature first thing in the morning 2 days after my period which was the 24th of March and ever since my basal temp. seems to stay in the 97 range and for what I have read your temp. will be between 97 post ovulation and my concern here is if I am even ovulating since my temp. has been at 97. something all these past days.
here are my temp.
day 8 temp was 97.90
day 9 temp was 97.45
day 10 temp was 97.05
day 11 temp was 97.18
day 12 temp was 97.33

to me it looks like you might have ovulated on CD16. you have a rise that is more than .3 degrees on CD17, and a dip on CD16 (lots of people have dips on ovulation day). If you continue to see temps above 97.3 chances are good. I would suggest joining fertilityfriend.com (it's free) and plugging in your temps there. It won't confirm you've ovulated until 3 days after you've ovulated, but it is a pretty handy tool. I hope that's helpful. Let me know if you have questions.

Thanks so much for your help it's just so hard trying to figure out how all this temp. things work. If it's not much to ask do you think that if I had intercourse on CD14 it might have been too far off from me being able to conceive?? I'm very stressed out because I have been ttc for about 5 months already and it just doesn't seem to happen Sad

yes it's possible!! the 2 days before ovulation are actually your most fertile days...sperm can live in a healthy environment for 3 days or so... it takes them about 14 hours to get to the egg and the egg, after ovulation, will only live for 12-24 hours so just before and on ovulation are fertile days. It's definitely stressful and frustrating when you just want it to happen already! Hang in there...try to have faith that it will happen.
