I would use the first and use a temp adjuster and use that temp and make a note of both temps.

Something like this http://www.whenmybaby.com/basalbodytemperature.php

Eventually you will be able to tell how your body reacts to waking up earlier.  If it were me I would probably use the 5:45 temp as long as I had gone immediately back to sleep because I don’t seem to have big temp differences as long as I’ve gotten at least 45 min in bed.

Do you have a link to your chart?   FWIW the first few months I temped my charts were kind of wonky due to waking up at different times and trying adjusters and whatnot.  Eventually what worked best for me was temping at the same time every day (7am) regardless of whether or not I got up at 5:00 or 6am as long as I still got that 30-45m of sleep and wasn’t up ALL night long feeling exhausted.  But it’s diffferent for everyone.  What were your other signs, how did you know you O yesterday?  Yesterday as in last night?

jfair:  Oh ok, I would say you should look for a temp jump tomorrow.  I have O pains and FF usually pinpoints O as the next day based on temps (I also get O pains in the evening so my temp is not going to jump immediately the next morning) since it can take a day or two for your temp to rise.  I would probably put the lower # but make a note of both temps and then see how your temps look for the next 3-4 days.  If you’re in FF, I usually go to Sharing and the Get Code section but their layout can be sort of hard to wade through.

You can come join the Charters thread if you’re charting- there are a lot of helpful people who can interpret your chart and answer questions while you’re learning.
