Huge BBT temperature dip?


So this is my first cycle temping. I'm CD 12 and woke up about 30 minutes early today, but went ahead and took my temp even though it was early, since I didn't want to take it after tossing and turning (I usually stay in bed until DH is out of the shower). But this morning, I had what seems like a rather large temperature dip... over 1.2 degrees. Is this normal? Does it signify O coming? I'm having watery/EWCM but not near as much as last month (sorry if tmi), and am trying to figure this timing out.

Half an hour probably isn't the culprit. I usually experience a temp dip around ovulation. I agree, though, seeing your chart would be helpful!

My best guess is I usually O right around the 12th, although this month is the first I've tempt, and am not using OPKs yet. Last month, my CM made it pretty obvious, never had that much before... this month is definitely it a redo, thankfully.

Oh, that is unusual! I'd probably go ahead and exclude that from the data. Something must have gone wrong this morning.

Though if you are expecting to ovulate today, leave it in for now.

Thanks Dill! I am expecting to be ovulating in the new few days, so I guess I'll leave it in for now, and see what happens. I did end up falling back asleep until DH got out of the shower, like normal, and my temp was back up, but I wasn't really "asleep". At that point, and it was only like 39 minutes or so.
