Is in the morning when you first wake up the absolutely best and only time one should temp? My work schedule is far from normal. My work pattern is 3-4-4-3. If that makes any Sense.
But anyways I get up at 5am on work days and around 7am on days off. But the days I work I get up so fast I don't remember to temp before I get up and on top of that I have a fan blowing right in my face the minute I wake up. (Wont this effect my temp?)
Is it possible to temp when I get up and away from my fan? Or when I get to the restroom after waking up?
I want to start temping this cycle but don't know if its going to work out for me.

Nope, soon as you get up out of bed the temperature changes. You aren't supposed to do more than reach out for the thermometer, even sitting up is a no no. Having the fan on your face is not a big deal as long as it blows on your face every single day.

And even on your days off, you need to temp at the same time. Your temperature rises by approximately .1 degrees every 20 minutes, but this varies for some people. You can go back to sleep after. Temping takes some getting used to, in fact they say 3-6m for it to become routine.

Try doing a "temping" alarm and a "have to get up alarm" make them just a few minutes apart.. after a few weeks you'll adjust to know first alarm means temp, second means get the heck out of bed.

*hugs* I know it's hard, I've been there... I dont' sleep more than 3 hours at a time... so temping was a night mare for me.

everything Ashley said. I too set myself an alarm so I gt up at the same day everyday as I would have otherwise had a lie in on weekends. It does take some geting used to but it worth it when you start seeing those patterns to your cycle

Thanks ladies. I didn't even think about setting two alarms. Lol. So since having the fan on me won't make my temp go all out of whack I will definitely do the two alarm thing and start my temping this cycle. Still waiting for AF to come so I can be that much closer from O.
Plan to start temping tomorrow before AF.
