Temp the moment you wake up (5:30). The more you doze the higher/less accurate your temp will be. The fact that you don’t use an alarm isn’t a big deal. I often wake up a bit before mine.

i am the same way. my alarm goes off at 7, but i’ve been awake and snuggling in my warm blankies for 20 minutes by then. i did find my temp would be raised if i was awake before my brain woke up enough to get the thermometer.

so i temp at 4. i have two alarms… one for temping (then i fall back asleep) and one for actually waking up.

@Glasgowbound:  For most people that should work. Try out one cycle and see if you get a readable chart. You have to make sure you’re not sleeping though. I let myself sleep my first cycle charting and got temps ALL over the place. I now set 2 alarms like @rosworms: does.

I don’t ever temp at the same time of day.  I work shifts and don’t always sleep all that great (only 5 hours of sleep last night for instance).  What has worked well for me is to just temp first thing when I wake up as long as it’s been at least 3 hours of solid sleep.  I get clear ovulation patterns regardless.  🙂
