Holy hot water bottles, @Finngarian! That is amazing. I’ve seen those numbers on warm afternoons, but nothing like them first thing in the morning.
Furthermore, my “basal” reading isn’t as strict as yours. I use an analog therm which takes several minutes, and I always get up and pee first, and I move around to start breakfast, etc., while taking it, it’s way too boring otherwise. I would love to see basal temps consistently above 98 (got some 98.2’s last cycle post-ov, but that was my record for basal) … maybe this ovulation will kick it up there? C’mon egg!!
@YarnJess — good for you taking the initiative. It’s amazing how committed to certain flow-chart procedures and tests medical people are … it’s hard to interest them in something that’s objectively unusual, unless you’re bleeding and missing limbs. But, you can always get a prescription for SSRIs and birth-control pills, that is never stinted. I’ve become a little jaded lately!
