When temping, it should be first thing in the morning, after a solid 3 hours of sleep at least. It’s needs to be rested sleep to be accurate. Waking up to go to the bathroom can make things out of wack. You should also ideally be temping around the same day every day to get an accurate reading of temperature shifts. 

I never read anything about mouth breathing. I tend to breathe through my mouth, and I don’t think it made a different. I saw clear temperature shifts. Have you read Taking Charge of Your Fertility? It’s a great resource.

I used this thermometer: http://www.amazon.com/3M-524560-Digital-Basal-Thermometer/dp/B0000533AY/ref=pd_sim_b_2

@AlmostMrsShield:  I temp during my period. I think it’s easier for FF to pick up on the trend with more dates, but that’s just my impression. At this point I could probably temp only for the few days around the shift, but I like to stay in the habit so I don’t forget or let myself sleep through it. 

Definitely check out the “Charters of the Hive” threads. Those ladies are fantastic and some of them/us have been charting a while now. ; )
