    @ethorn13:  I used to have this dilemma too….As long as you get 2.5 to 3.5 hrs to sleep after your bathroom visit, then take your temp at your usual time, as it most likely will not be affect your temp. GL :))))))))))))))

    i would temp at 5:15am. if you’re consistant with temping at this time every morning, you’ll see a pattern in your temps even if you get up to pee in the middle of the night. i have get up sometimes too and it doesn’t seem to affect my temps.

    I would take the temp at 515, since you aren’t really ‘waking up’ as much as you are shuffling to the bathroom, with your eyes half closed, and going right back to bed. If you want to do an experiment, take your temps at both time and see if they are that off.

    Could you try to avoid the night-time pee by stopping drinking anything a few hours before bed?  I’ve had the same issue before, because I drink a ton of water during the day, but I make sure to stop drinking anything at least two hours before bed because I HATE waking up to pee at night.  Maybe this could solve your problem?

    I get up to pee nearly every night, and i find that makes no difference. I also find that as long as I’m asleep for an hour or so, no problem. It does make a big difference though if I;

    Drink alcohol – I have to have a drink or whatevr right when I get home. If dinner is late, I really should abstain. 

    Take my temperature outside my “normal” 30 minute window.

    I know some times avoiding peeing in the middle of the night is inevitable, but I found by keeping a night light on in the bathroom and not turning on the lights help in not affecting me temp. Maybe you can try that?
