You should only be taking your temp once when you first wake up in the morning, before you get out of bed. It`s important to try to get this time as close to the same time each day.

Your temp will naturally flucuate during the day and night.

It’s normal to have it vary a little bit each day.

You are right that temp rises when you oversleep but if you are waking up and then falling back asleep / trying to temp later it won’t be accurate. Also 4:30-7 is 2.5 hours and you need atleast 3-4 hours of solid sleep to temp. I would just use the 4:30am temp its not too far from your waking time.

As for your title question likely your body and thermometer are both normal 😉

@skipper2010:  I have been thinking the same thing about my thermom. What is up with two of us charters having wonky ass temps tHis cycle?! I blame it on the moon. I don’t know why but I do.

@skipper2010:  Double checking will drive you crazy – it will nearly always be wrong. 

Once in the morning, then lock it away until tomorrow!! 🙂

Oh, and if you’re ever in doubt, check your thermometer batteries. I always found I go strange readings when they were on the way out.
