Im kinda the same way with this.  My alarm clock goes off, but I don’t really “wake” up for another 15-30 minutes.  Is it still ok to take my temp after this tossing and turning period?

I’m (or was before pregnancy) a fairly good sleeper so I didn’t have this problem.  But my best friend who was instructed on how to temp by her fertility doctor said to make sure you take your temp before your feet hit the floor in the morning.  I would imagine that if you aren’t getting out of bed every time you wake up, you’d probably be ok.  But if you don’t want to get pregnant quite yet, perhaps using a back-up method of birth control wouldn’t be a bad idea right now.

@candicemcc:  I agree.

Try to take it the same time every morning and don’t actually get up.  Also, you’ll want to rely heavily on other fertility signs–cervical position (softness/firmness, open/not open, location) and cervical fluid.  Also pay close attention to see if you get other signs (sore breasts, mittelschmerz, etc).  You can also add in OPKs.

EDIT:  Also look into Billings and Marquette methods and Creighton Model.  They’re a bit different that the sympto-thermal method explained/taught by Catholic diocese’s Couple-to-Couple League and TCOYF.
