Hey Ladies,

I was hoping maybe y'all could offer some insight or opinions. I work a 24/48 schedule meaning that I work for 24 hours straight then I have 48 hours off. While I'm at work I cannot guarantee that I will have enough rest to temp or be able to do it at the same time. I want so badly to do everything possible to up our chances. Do you think that I still can do bbt? How would you go about temping when everything in my life makes sleep crazy? What thermometer do you recommend ?

Any recommendations or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Oy I don't miss that schedule at all. Best thing you can do is temp when you get a solid 6 hours (LMAO.... just made me think of the people with four cars in their driveway and calling 911 for a stubbed toe). That's the best you can do.

That call happens every shift! You would think after 7 years it wouldn't surprise me anymore but I'm still shocked at the 5 am call because your arm is asleep *smh*


Thanks for the advice. I don't understand with everything we can do in medicine there should be a simple answer do this this and this hold your tongue to the left... bam

No kidding! I feel like maybe if I start tricking myself into being terrified of getting pregnant like some little high school girl.. maybe that would work.

Sigh.

Ah well. Oh.. and a BD thermometer is pretty decent.

Don't know anything about BBT - I'm sure someone will be able to give some great advice. Just curious - What do you do for a living? 9-1-1 operator or paramedic?

I think honestly that you should just try to get a BBT when you can, but rely more on other fertility signs. Have you read Taking Charge of Your Fertility? It has a lot about the other signs and is pretty informative on how to track them. I rely on them more than my bbt.
