Some people are more sensitive to time changes than others.  Just being awake can change the temp for some.  What I do is set my alarm for a time before I normally get up any day.  I wake up when my alarm goes off, pop my thermometer in, record my temp, go back to sleep.  It all takes less than two minutes.  The only time I miss temping now is if I have to be up stupid early to get to the airport or something like that.

LunaRose101:  It’s hard to say but you could be sensitive to what time you wake up. I know that my BBT is different depending on what time I wake up even 15 min makes a difference in my case. Perhaps, you could try to set your alarm to an earlier time such as 6 am, take your temperature and go back to sleep.

Just wanted to chime in to agree with both of the PP. My temperature seems to be quite different even after lying awake in bed for 15 minutes or so. Even though I don’t have to be up at 6am during the summer, I set my alarm for that time, take my temp, and sometimes just get up then, but other times go back to sleep.

Agreed with PPs.


I also find alcohol REALLY affects my BBT- definitely raises it.  I even ‘discard’ that temp if I have more than 4 drinks the night before (oops. Only once a week though!)
