I have a resting temp of 96.3 or 96.5, but I'm not sure why your temp would be so low and your pregnant. I wish you luck and hope it's nothing. Could it be the batteries?

I do not think it is the batteries. I can tell that my temp is down, b/c I am freezing..like I said ti feels like when you have a fever, but my temp is low not high. Thanks for the comment and I hate to be a worry wart, but just wanted to ask.

Your welcome. I have had a low temp since birth, but I am always hot, that's weird. I hope maybe it's just because it's cold out, I do hope everything is going to be fine. Make sure you let us know how it goes.

OMG! You are describing me to a T! I keep telling people that since I've become pregnant I feel like I have a fever and my body temp is low, usually around 97.1 to 98.1. I will anxiously await an update to see what your Dr. has to say! Good luck!

Ok well I just talked to the nurse at my docs office and she said not to be concerned, just to increase my fluids. It seemed like no big deal to her and she said it is not low..Ok well what is low then? My one friend told me to stop being a hypocondriat?????....um I def am not, but being pregnant they tell you to be concerned over some things. Well from now on when I worry I will not share it with my friends only BG...LoL

It sounds like you could be slightly dehyrdrated or even have low blood sugar (which would explain the dizziness and lightheadedness). Do as the nurse told you and drink lots of fluids, and also try to eat something with protein in it. Also, have they checked your iron levels recently? Having a lower body temperature can be an indication of anemia (low iron). Try increasing your intake of deeply green colored veggies (like broccoli) and/or bananas. Since both naturally contain a high level of iron, they can help your body replace what the baby is taking. Even though the nurse said it's no big deal, I would make sure to tell your dr at your next visit. And don't worry- you are NOT a hypochondriac! When you're pregnant everything out of the ordinary has to be something major, right? :wink:

It happens to me constantly! The only thing that changed for me in pregnancy was that I would occasionally have a hot flash, but I am ALWAYS the cold one wrapped up in many blankets while others think I'm nuts. I have low blood pressure and have an issue with my thyroid. (that and dehydration CAN do it too) I am sure you will be fine, but if it is a genuine concern about your child, NO ONE can call you a hypochondriac. If you are still concerned I would ask your doctor for more answers, considering you are absolutely entitled. Tak care and good luck! :D

Have you found anything else out about your low temp? I am pregnant and my temp was 97.5 today, and I just feel kind of funky and foggy

I've had a low temp since my 2nd trimester and someone brought up that it may be a hypothyroid. I had the blood test done and sure enough, that was my problem! I guess it's really common for woman to have a hypothyroid and one of the symptoms is a low temp! So, I thought I would just pass that on. :o)

Myself and my son (4 years) have always been on the low side we typically run at 96-97, so when I am at the average 98.6 I feel like I have a fever. And its the same for my son. When he is running an "average" 98.6 he feels abnormally warm and I know that he's running what is a fever for him. That being said...I just barely broke 99 when I got pregnant the first time, now I'm waking up with a consistant 98.9 for the last couple days. I know I have to wait a while longer before my temperature will hold steady and then its pretty much a sure thing, the added problem is I'm on Yaz, I ovulate during my period so I may be very unexpectedly pregnant and feeling aprehensive. Any support or simular stories would be a real help.
