Attempting to Repeat Temp

So, later yesterday after my high BBT, I decided to check my temp to see what it is normally. I usually temp lower than 98.6F.

I attempted to setup some favorable conditions for the retest. I got in bed and covered up. My cat volunteered to lay on my chest. And after awhile I took my temp.

It was less than my BBT temp. So, I thought, maybe if I give it some more time (snuggled warmly in my bed with the cat). So I watched a great Frontline on PBS about the Presidential candidates and retested after about an hour. Same as the first, and still lower than the BBT.

I'm not sure if it is common to get a BBT greater than your normal temp in the luteal phase or not. At this point, I don't think it was my wiggling that caused it. Perhaps seeing Sarah Palin on SNL got my blood boiling enough to screw up my chart.

And my BBT this morning was elevated, but still lower than yesterday's BBT.
