Did anyone else find their temps drop significantly after the time change? My coverline dropped 0.4 degrees F!

My temps don't seem to change at all with the time changes. I've been charting for 3 years. But I think some people's temps are more sensitive to time changes (such as waking earlier or later) than other people. I also don't see much difference if I take my temp a little earlier or later.

When I first started charting,mix would temp around 6:30-7:00am...then a few months later I changed to 4:30 because I inevitably always wake up to use the bathroom then (my cats wake up then!)  I noticed my temps went down a bit, but the pattern was still there ans. pre-o temp was still a pre-o temp.


it looks like you're waiting to ovulate this month. You say your cover line dropped but until you complete a chart or at least O, you can't really set I our cl.  What I like about ovusoft software that no one else has is the shifting cl. It moves with your past 6 temps as you wait to o.  So really what you are seeing right now is a group of lower than usual temps for you. It could slightly be related to change in time, but more likely just a patch of lower temps,..could be gearing up to ovulate or just normal fluctuations.

Last time I see a clear O is chart 54. I looked at when the DST occurred and did not see anything that I would credit to that as the temps are lower prior to that point. There is actually a recommended schedule for change to prevent the initial drop that many see from temping an hour earlier.
