Hi

I am new here - my name is Paula. I was pretty good at charting back on the days when I was TTC # 1. Now, we are thinking of TTC # 2 and I want to start charting again but I am not sure how to do it because motherhood has somewhat disrupted my sleeping patterns. Typically, DS will wake up at least once during the night and I will go to him, give him dummy and go back to sleep without having really woken up. I know I manage to get between 6 to 7 hours of sleep but I never know if, and when (or how many times!), I will be getting up during the night.

So, any ideas about how to chart? Should I just try to take my temp at a certain time in the morning regardless of what has happened during the night? Should I just forget about temps and simply rely on CM?

Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks!

Paula

Since you rpetty consistently get up during the night, I think you should still be able to see a thermal shift. I'd temp every monring and make sure you pay particular attention to your CM as it iwll help quite a bit.

Still try to take your temp at the same time each morning. That one will be the most reliable one to use. I had an odd night a few nights ago and to avoid causing software problems I asked FF what temp to use to avoid causing misreadings. They told me to use the one closest to my normal waking temp because the others were simply too inconsistent with the norm. I hope this helps!

You can do either one! If you want to give temping a shot, go for it - not everyone is affected by erratic sleep patterns. Just try to take it around the same time, no matter what your night was like.

I agree, you could at least give it a shot for one cycle and see how it goes. If it's really frustrating you could just do CM patterns or OPKs.

Good luck and !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would give it a shot. It might take awhile to see a pattern but it might be worth it.
