    I know they say you should stop after confirming pregnancy, but past miscarriages have scarred me. If you're still charting, do you mind posting the link to your chart? Thanks!

    I am 6 weeks today and woke up with a considerable dip in my temp...just a "little worried" is an understatement at this point.

    Put the thermometer away! Your body is going through so many changes - inconsistencies like this are bound to happen.

    As first tri goes on, believe me, you will find new things to worry about. After a couple days, you will have completely forgotten that bbt temping is something that you even did. I temped for about 7 cycles and gave it up once my pregnancy insomnia took over my sleep patterns.

    I know I should- I know! But I guess I feel like I am never going to have a normal pregnancy, and that inevitably this one will end as well. How negative, right?! Just trying to be honest though. Infertility can definitely ruin the joy of pregnancy...

    With my first two pregnancies, I charted for almost the entire first trimester. So, I understand. This time, I was surprised and I wish I had charts. Still have them for my other two; they are helpful. But, I'm sure you're ok to stop. I'm 6+ weeks as well. :kiss: :flower:

    It's hard, I know. We were told that we probably wouldn't conceive naturally 4 days before I got my bfp. I had my fertility specialist appt made and everything. My family doctor also wanted to send me for an MRI as he wanted to check to see if I have a pituitary tumour (my LH and FSH were off and the pituitary controls those two hormones) - my MRI appt was scheduled for December 4. My pregnancy is a miracle for so many reasons. Treat yours as one as well.

    It's hard to get attached when you worry about losing it. But for your own sanity, take it one day at a time - every day that passes is a milestone. :hugs:
