okay I found my therm. I took my temp this morning. I was sitting still had been for about 2 hours. my temp is usually 97.5... this morning it was 98.5... I have one week left to wait to find out if PG... plus I have had other symtoms. I read to chart your bbt your should do it first thing in morn before you get out of bed... and to hold it for 5 min... okay I held in my mouth a minute ago for 5 minutes and my temp was 98.7. so ... what the heck? I need your imput..pah pah please!!!
To chart your BBT what you do is take your temperature in the morning before you get out of bed, the key is that this also has to be at the same time every day too. Say, every morning at 7am beore getting out of bed.
I think the hold it for 5 minutes you heard about might be keeping your mouth closed before taking your temp but I wouldnt worry too much about that. Is your thermometer digital? there is no need to keep it in your mouth for 5 minutes if it is, once it beeps the temp wont change anymore.
If you are already in the two week wait it might be a hard time to start charting. Check out fertilityfriend.com for more charting advice if you didnt get preggo this cycle.
