    If its still up tomorrow then you may have ovulated, if not then it was probably jsut a one off.

    Its better to look at a chart as a whole rather than jsut one temp

    Temps can change for different women - Not all my charts were 'close'!!

    Late AF would suggest a test maybe? :wink:

    Good luck hun - On the up is good but not a reliable way to detect pregnancy.

    Hiya Claire

    Your temperature rise could well be because you have ovulated. A dip in temperature followed by a rise (at least 2/10's of a degree) higher than all temps the previous six days and staying at or beyond this level for at least 3 consecutive days shows that ovulation has occurred.

    Typically first phase (Preovulatory) temps will normally be between 97.0F (36.1C) to 97.5F (36.4C). Right before ovulation occurs the hormone estrogen is produced causing lower temps.

    In the second phase (Luteal Phase) which begins after ovulation temperatures generally will rise between 97.0F (36.4C) and 98.6F (37.0C)....Allow for 1/10 of a degree out as I've had to convert to Celsius and I always hated maths!
