Hi there -

I just started cycle #3 of TTC our first child. I just went off birth control 2 months ago, got pregnant on the first month and unfortunately had a chemical pregnancy. BFN this month. I just want to make sure I'm actually ovulating when my OPK tells me I am. However, this month, my husband is away and I'll be going to see him on weekends, so I'll be sleeping in a different bed, in a different house etc. Will that affect my waking temperature? Should I bother to temp this month?

I would temp just to get in the habit and get used to it. My first month of temping probably wasn't very accurate, but now that I'm used to it, I think I can reasonably trust my chart. So then next month when it's not a crazy month you'll be more confident.

Just a little tid bit though- most people's temp rises the day after ovulation, but that's not true for everyone. Your temp really only tells you IF you ovulated, and not necessarily when. If your OPKs, cervical mucus, and temp all direct you to a certain day, then you can be confident that was O day, but if your CM and OPK say one day and your temp says something different, you could just have a body that responds slowly to progesterone.

i agree. i would do it anyway. i dont think the whole different house different bed thing will make a big difference.

keep an eye on CM too and hopefully this month with the combination you will have able to confirm you are Oing.
