I tried to post this last night but it didn't work out. I'm going to post again.

I have a basal body thermometer and I'm curious as to how exactly you would use the second digit from the decimal in helping to record your temps.

For example if your temp was 97.25 would that be recorded as 97.3 or 97.2?

Would you round up or not until the tenths place actually did change to the next number up?

Thanks

A program like TCOYF will round it up or down. .5+ is rounded up, .4 down is rounded down.

Since the exact temperature isn't important, it's the pattern a cycle's worth make that is.

You can record it to the hundredth on FF, but most other software will round it, but it doesn't really matter what the software does because it's the overall picture that matters.

Actually, in my experience, TCOYF and Attain have rounded my temperatures up even when it's been something like 97.33 (to 97.4). I realize it's poor math but that is what they've both done for me a few times. Other than that, the other ladies have it right.
