Hey ladies! So I am still pretty new to this and have a question. I am going camping in the mountains this weekend, so I expect the temp to be quite lower than what I am used to. Should I still take my bbt while I am there, or should I just skip those days? Will being in a cooler climate hurt my regular temps?

Would love some insight!

Thanks!

I do still chart when we travel, but we use Billings and it doesn't require BBT.

I think if it's just one weekend, (2 nights?) - missing those temps won't affect your chart much. It's the overall pattern you're looking for anyway. If you do take your thermie, you'll want to mark those ones as *disturbed* anyway.

Hey there! That is probably what I will do. My chart is still so out of whack right now anyway, that hopefully it won't make too much of a difference.

I have a bunch of family in Idaho, btw. Love to go visit up there! The summers are gorgeous...it's the winter I can't handle. lol.

Nope I haven't been over there yet. I am still WTTC, so I was thinking of waiting until I am actually trying or have a LO on the way

I do, depending on where I am in my cycle. If I am anywhere near O, I do. I just plot it on my chart when I get home. I've been doing this long enough that I can see the temp and know if it's above or below the CL.
