I know that everyone says that BBTs are more accurate... but I'm still not sure what the difference is between that and a regular digital thermometer (that beeps when it has your temp.) This month is the first month that I've been charting, but I'm using a digital thermometer-- is this pointless? I'm on CD13 (I think I'm still waiting to O), and most of my temps. have been between 96.5-96.9 (a few in the beginning were a little over 97). Opinions?

I think BBT is best b/c it gives 2 decimal places like 97.39 rather than just 97.4, so it is more accurate. I use a digital b/c I haven't gotten extremely serious about temping yet. This is my 4th cycle TTC and if it doesn't happen by Christmas, I will go buy Taking Charge of Your Fertility, buy a BBT and a fertility monitor.

I agree, the BBT has 2 decimal places, and would give a more accurate result. The book Taking Charge of Your Fertility is AWESOME. I just got mine last week, and it's great.

Ok, For now I'll stick with my digital... it seems to be giving me some results that are aligning with my CM and OPKs (I know I'm obsessing... just wanting to MAKE SURE I was ovulating b/c at one point I wasn't sure I was). Today it was the lowest yet (96.2!)... maybe I'll be ovulating here shortly (I'm at CD 17)... we'll see. If it doesn't happen soon, I may go out and buy one. Thanks!
