@PumpkinSpiceChai:  I would definitely get professional help with these types of questions.  This chart looks different than the norm to me, but all in all, I wouldn’t adjust your temp.  It’s a very imperfect thing and I just chart what I see on the thermometer each morning.  Are there many charting Bees on here?  I had no idea!

I never adjust my temps, even if I have to wake up early or get to wake up late. I try to get within a half hour of my “normal time” but I never correct it.

I wouldn’t adjust the temp because really, you have no idea if by adjusting it you’re making it more or less accurate. I suggest like you said, getting a basal themometer next month. Also, do you take your temp orally or vaginally? It’s more recommended to do it vaginally as it’s more accurate. Anyways good luck! You’ll get crosshairs eventually, just let your temperatures ride out for a few more days. 🙂

First things first, you need a basal thermometer. I wouldn’t adjust though… mine never seem to be affected by waking up in the middle of the night (it seems like as long as you don’t get up and run around or something, it’s not a big deal). 

Are you just coming off of some sort of hormonal BC? If so, you can expect your temps and your CM (especially the CM) to have a weird pattern for a few months.

I wouldn’t adjust. Mine makes no difference really if I wake up before. I get up in the wee morning nearly every day to go to the bathroom. It’s fine. The only thing that really affects mine is alcohol. I would leave it where it is. Think of it this way: If you adjust your temperature and you DO get CH on it, it wouldn’t necessarily mean you ovulated anyway. You would never really know whether it’s correct or not. Good luck!

I wouldn’t adjust, and quite frankly, I wouldn’t wait until next cycle to try a basal thermometer.  You could always temp twice (once with the reg and once with the basal and see how close they are).
