Is it normal to have temps this low after ovulation? I just had a dip to 97.7 today, which leaves me a bit worried. We are ttc.

tmonee, thanks for the explanation! It should be viewable now. A funny thing happened this morning, though, and my temp went up a bit, but it was a strange morning, so I don't know if it really counts or if I should have used the rule of thumb. I woke up an hour earlier than normal (seems like that should make it lower, though). I was a little stressed upon awakening, though, trying to get my boy someplace that he was supposed to go to, so maybe the stress first thing when I woke up caused a higher temp, or maybe my temp was simply higher.
I am hypothyroid, but taking synthroid too. I actually didn't take it for the 2 days prior, because we were so busy, I kept forgetting to get to the pharmacy, then I took it yesterday, so maybe that made my temps go up? I wouldn't think it would happen so suddenly, though.
I'm confused, but I guess time will tell.
It seems like the temps in the book are all higher than mine, but maybe I'm worrying about nothing.
Here is my chart:
Your temps look fine to me. They are above the coverline and that's what matters. ROT won't apply after ovulation. You should worry if your temps are consistently at or below the coverline, but you are fine
Well, you definitely ovulated, so if you're TTC, then you are set!
As for how low they are, you may just have low temps. Are they usually like this for most cycles? (97.7 is still well above the coverline, though, so you clearly ovulated.) Btw, I've found that different thermometer brands are calibrated differently - one brand I used consistently gave me lower temps than another. Both showed a clear temp pattern, so they both worked for FAM; it's just that one kind might be set a few tenths of a degree lower than another.
Thanks for the replies! For the past couple of days my temps have been a bit lower, strange, but they are still above the coverline.
I guess I'll see what happens this week.
