So, during the week I usually temp between 3:30 and 4:30 am. Can the difference of an hour cause my temps to be wacky? This morning I didn't wake until 5:30 and my temp jumped pretty high from yesterday. I then wanted to test this theory after getting up, going to the store, smoking a cigarette and brushing my teeth. My temp was down to 97.77 after all this activity. I didn't hear my alarm at 4:15 this morning to take my temp at the same time as usual. So....how does timing make a difference?

For some timing is more sensitive then others. I work night shift so I temp during the day and at night depending on my work schedule. When I wasn't working nights I found for ME, I could temp any time after being asleep for a while just so long as the sun wasn't up. Once the sun was up, my temp would go up.

Temping after all your activity would definitely be considered inaccurate though as it is not your basal body temp and there are too many things that could be making it higher or lower.

I have noticed that my temps don't differ that much if I wait an hour. I have woken up and taken them at my normal time of 5:30 and went back to sleep and taken then when I got up at 7:30 or 8(on weekends) and there has been very little difference in my temp.

I like temp at my usual time and then again if I go back to sleep and wake up later, just to see how sensitive my body is. I noticed some mornings my temp would drop and then rise after my original temp, sometimes it would just rise and other times (like this morning for example) it was exactly the same. So, I wouldn't recommend it unless you test the theory for a few days and it is exactly the same each time...

As said above, it would definitely be inaccurate after all that activity because its not a BBT.

Mine don't differ too much. I really don't go crazy if I temp an hour before usual or later than usual. But whenmybaby does have a useful link to BBT time syncing!
