Here is my chart. Temps have been staying nice and steady but a little drop today. Is that bad? I'm new to charting.

I'm not familiar with this app, but a slight drop around 8dpo is normal.

Even when trying to get pregnant or normal for AF on it's way?

Yes, even when trying to get pregnant. It's because progesterone is what causes your temperatures to be high after ovulation in the first place. Progesterone is created by the corpus luteum, which is the follicle that released the egg. Well progesterone production peaks around 7dpo, so many women see a slight drop in temperatures around then, regardless if they are about to implant or if AF will come. Some women call this an implantation dip if they ended up pregnant that cycle but in all actuality it's really the corpus luteum reducing it's progesterone production. Now if you end up having an embryo implant, the hcg the embryo releases will tell the corpus luteum to keep producing progesterone, which will cause your temperature to go back up (hence the "implantation dip"). Hope this helps. If you want to learn a lot about temping you can go onto fertilityfriend.com, even if you don't use their chart. There is tons of good information on the site.

The best thing you can do for yourself while TTC is to become informed about how your body works! So I try to give as much info as possible. :)
