I’m just going to keep it to my regular time and put a note. I don’t think it will make that big of a difference. If you do ovulate this weekend, it probably would just be a little unclear exactly which day it happened, but you’ll still see that you did.

I don’t think an hour will make too much difference.  I set my alarm for 5 am rather than wake up time though, so I pretty much can assume I’ll still be woken up from deep sleep at “6 am” on a weekend.  If you do it at the time you naturally wake up, and still wake up and then lay there for an hour, it might be affected?

@psychdoc83:  Omg I didn’t think about this. I AM supposed to see a temperature shift tomorrow….I’m kind of freaking out. I will research and report back when I am done!

You’re not going to be able to do it this time… BUT for future reference, when you time change (due to 1 hr zone change or DST) you can do something like this:

I like the way the NFP book explains it over the TCOYF

“If you are in Phase 2 in the fall and you want tthe most accurate temperatures fo rthe transition, follow this pattern which assumes a 6 am waking time:

Friday: 6:00 am (Daylight Savings Time)
Saturday: 6:20am (Daylight Savings Time)
Change your clock before going to bed Saturday night
Sunday: 5:40am (Standard Time)
Monday: 6:00am (standard Time) “

Springtime is as follows:

“Friday: 6:00am (Standard Time)
Saturday: 5:40am (Standard Time)
Change your clock before going to bed Saturday night
Sunday: 6:20am (DST)
Monday: 6:00am (DST)”
