Pregnancy Symptoms (cont.)
Elevated Basal Body Temperature
The basal body temperature (the oral temperature measured first thing in the
morning, before arising from bed) typically remains elevated in early pregnancy.
An elevation in the basal body temperature occurs shortly after ovulation and
persists until the next menstrual period occurs. If pregnancy occurs, the
temperature remains elevated.
