Hi girls,
I had a big drop in BBT last night and I'm trying to figure out if something I did or didn't do caused the drop.
Normally, I get in the shower about 3 hours before bedtime.. last night, I did not.
I had been wearing heavy flannel pjs but last night it was warmer here so I just wore a t-shirt and pj bottoms..

OR.. maybe it seems like a big drop because the night before (when I had a temp of 36.7), I woke up kind of over-heated feeling and then took my temp.

Do you think either of these could have caused the drop?

Also.. I was wondering about the time of temping.. I normally temp after 3 hours of sleep (around 3am) but last night I was up late and made sure that I had 3 hours of sleep before temping (so I ended up temping around 4am). What's more important - getting in 3 hours of sleep or temping the same time every night regardless of how much sleep?

You know.. I think you girls are right, I should do FF's course and buy the TCOYF.. I'm sure either of those would help explain these things to me!

It really helps if you can temp at the same time each day regardless of whether or not you've gotten your full three hours. Any changes in your home temperature, pajamas, blankets, etc. can affect your temperature. Your shower habits shouldn't make a difference. Other things that can make a difference are the position of your thermometer, if the batteries are getting low, and (if you temp orally) making sure that you do not breathe through your mouth when taking your temp. Definitely take the FF course at the very least. It does help and they e-mail you a lesson a day so it isn't overwhelming.
~Thanks Babydoll213 for my awesome siggie!~
