I temped in at 98.2 today!

The basal body temperature method is a quite common method, but one that I’m realizing a lot of people don’t know about or understand. I was surprised at the reactions after I released my blog, as readers asked, ”I still don’t understand, are you pregnant or not?” The answer is, I don’t know. Your temperature has to remain high for a minimum of 18 days straight when using the basal body temperature method. My temperature has remained high for 8 days now. It is also following the same pattern as my first pregnancy. If the basal body temperature holds to a pattern, tomorrow will start a 10 day run of my temperature being much higher than normal, as well as staying consistently at this this new spiked temperature.

Right now, it is too soon to take a pregnancy test as home pregnancy tests rely on the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to indicate whether one is pregnant or not. The pregnancy hormone hCG is created by the cells that form the placenta after a fertilzed egg implants in the uterus (http://www.womenshealth.gov/FAQ/pregnancy-tests.cfm). Once the egg implants the hormone hCG will double every 48-72 hours (http://www.americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/hcglevels.html). This implantation is not instantaneous after you have sex. It can take anywhere from 6 days after the egg and the sperm merge until the first day after your missed period. The home pregnancy test is designed to detect whether hCG is in your system.  This is why I cannot be 100% sure that I’m pregnant as I don’t know if implantation has occurred, nor do I know if the hormone is being produced. I do know that I have begun to break out in acne and I can only contribute it to the change in my hormones. Not a “for sure” sign, but one that does affect a lot of pregnant women, as hormones change during pregnancy, after birth, during nursing, and when weaning the baby off of you. Your hormones shift and you can see it happening on your face! For the most part, your skin gets better.

If you were to ask me what I belive at this point in time, I’d say I’m about 80% sure I’m pregnant. I tend to have a good strong positive attitude when it comes to my body. I know that sounds pretty gutsy to say so soon but I know my body and the pattern is the same so far. We will know soon enough.
