I don’t necessarily have a brand recommendation (I don’t even know what brand mine is – the end is lavender), but you should look for a thermometer that reads to the hundredth of the degree.  Some people say to the tenth is sufficient, but I think it’s worth it to have a more accurate reading.  So, for example, if I temped three days in a row and my temperatures were 96.96, 97.04, and 97.01, if my thermometer read to the tenth of the degree they would all be 97.0.  It’s not a huge difference, but when your total range of temps may be within 1-1.5 degree, I think it makes a difference.

Mrs.KMM:  I’m on my last pack of BCP too! I only have 3 pills left and after that will start charting, so this weekend, eeek yay! This is the BBT thermometer I bought: http://www.fairhavenhealth.com/digital-basal.html?cmp=shopzilla&kw=digital-basal&utm_source=digital-basal&utm_medium=shopping%2Bengine&utm_campaign=shopzilla

I haven’t gotten the chance to use it yet, but the reviews were good and it doesn’t beep the whole time it’s taking your temp, only when it’s done. I didn’t want to wake up DH every morning with annoying beeps. 🙂 (It says it guarantees temps to the tenth but it also shows temps to the hundredth and stores your last temp for the next time you turn it on for ease in later recording.)
