    or am I just a big saddo?

    I just find it reassuring that my temp is remaining high. Alhtough, I have no clue if it is supposed to drop at any point!

    I dont hon but Ive heard its best to stop charting your temp because if it drops for any reason it will make just send you into a state of panic :hugs: :hugs:

    So a drop it temp doesn't mean a bad thing then? As my temp hasn't dropped before 98.4 since 7DPO

    I never temped. I found it horribly stressful and inconsistent but that's just me. : )

    I stopped right after I found out I was pregger. Too much work for me. It was hard to be consistant when TTC much less now.

    I'm wondering the same thing! I had an early m/c at 5 weeks in Feb, and only started temping after that, probably just to give me something I could keep a permanent eye on (control freak alert! although I know I can't control it!!)

    I'm 4+3 today, and won't consider myself properly pregnant until I get past my mini-milestone on Saturday. I'll probably keep temping until then and then stop. Although I agree with Jen that if it drops at all this week I'll probably go straight into panic mode, so I'm a bit scared. But I know it'll be just too tempting to resist this week.

    Same reason my dh has confiscated my last pee-sticks!

    Best of luck to all xxx

    I stopped the day I got my BFP.

    I've read that temping doesn't tell you much when pregnant and I knew that I'd freak out if I had any slight dip in temp (which is quite normal).

    I read that temps in pregnancy can rise and fall for a number of reasons - and that can make you panic unnecessarily.

    I was glad to put the thermometer away on 14 dpo.
