Hi so I've started charting this month, I didn't start til CD15 tho. I know that because of this I'm not going to know what by base line is til next month. With that being said my numbers are everywhere, but everywhere consistent. I'm a Personal Trainer so my schedule isn't the same everyday. Some days I test at 4am when I wake up and other days I get to "sleep in" til 6am. What I noticed is that all my temps for the 4am days are around 97.2 and the other days of 6am or weekends at 7-8am are higher more around 97.7.
I'm just curious if this is just a coincidence or if anyone else has that same problem. And if this is a because of the varying times do I need to get up every morning at 4am(Ugg)?

this is pretty normal. i can't remember the degree change per half hour but that looks about right. i am almost always 97.7 at 6:30 but 98.1 a ittle later. i would not worry about getting up any earlier, just realize the change is the time.

Consistency is EXTREMELY important when temping, and your temp can creep up by as much as .1 of a degree every half hour later that you temp. And unfortunately, it's hard to tell how much different wake times affect your chart until you've been doing it for a few cycles, since every woman is different. While it is possible to adjust your temperature to make it all seem like a consistent wake time, this should only be reserved for "emergency" situations (like you woke up early and couldn't fall back asleep, your alarm broke, ect.) and should not be a regular occurrence. So yes, unfortunately you should get up every morning at 4 if that is when you usually wake up. You can always just take your temp and go back to sleep, though. Otherwise you'll have a hard time interpreting your chart.
