Temping while pregnant? Is it worth doing?

Hello all

This is very exciting as it's my first post in the "pregnancy" section!! I had a bfp (first one ever smile) yesterday after charting some very high temps (36.97 this morning!). Should I continue to temp and if so what is normal temps for pg so I don't start panicking over nothing.

Thanks in advance smile

Ooh no, don't bother temping.

Congratulations smile

grin I thought you meant going out to a temporary job... <jogs on as have nothing interesting to say> blush

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Mon 06-Jul-09 09:54:11

I thought you meant temping as in the job

No - unfortunately I have a full time job that was hoping to leave (had a very positive first interview last Friday but I guess will have to decline if I do get it!) - still much rather stay where I am and be pg!!! smile

Congratulations! With both my BFP's I temped for about a week or two afterwards just so I could make sure AF wasn't going to appear and it was a chemical pregnancy or anything - but the issue there is if you sleep with your mouth open one night you have a total panic the next day!
So probably save yourself the stress- although I did like how on fertility friend if you got 18 raised temps it would tell you you were probably pregnant.

Congrats on your BFP! No need to temp while pregnant - I know some women who have (to get to a minimum of 18 high temps as recommended by fertility friend) but as Thandeka says it can cause you so much stress! The main reason to temp is to check when you ovulate (by seeing the temp rise) and of course you've no need for that now!

Come and join us in the due in March thread in the Ante Natal section smile.

Thanks Thandeka and Caitni - think I will give it a rest then as liable to panic at the slightest drop in temperature!

Will see you in the March thread!!!!

Ok I thought you meant temporary employment too!

Congratulations though! grin

Josie - I agree with Caitni and Thandeka. Not worth it! You've got your BFP, so just relax and try to enjoy! grin
