I'm just wondering if there is any specific advice anyone has for me, with regards to using FAM with a baby who is still waking during the night? I would LIKE to temp (seeing as I bought a new BBT thermometer lol), but when we were TTC Gaby, I did fine just using my mucous observations.....

Gaby generally wakes up around 4am (for about 20 minutes) & then wakes again around 6.30-7.00am. I know you are meant to take your temp as close to the same time as possible, and after 2 hours sleep.... Rather than taking my temp at 6.30-7.00am, would it still be effective if I took my temp when I woke at 4am??? Between going to sleep around 10.30 & waking at 4.00, that is probably when I get my biggest run of un-interrupted sleep.

I have no probs using mucous only methods, but i prefer to use a temping method as well....

If you take it as close to 4am as you can, that would be just fine. If your sleeping pattern is erratic, your temps might be bouncy - but you should still see the overall shift when it happens.
