My mom was in the hospital for about a week. I had trouble sleeping that week. I was up and down half the night. Could that have affected my temps? I was also taking my temps earlier than usual does that have an affect?

Yes, both of those issues could have affected your temps. You can use a temperature corrector for the days that you woke up early to give you an idea of what your temp would be had you temped at the normal time. I don't think there's such an easy solution for restless nights though.

Here's the corrector that I like to use: http://www.beamommy.com/welcome/BabyTools/...60/Default.aspx

Yup, it can affect it... but I wouldn't use a temp corrector, since temps really vary from woman to woman. I would just make note of being sleep deprived in my notes section. If you do decide to temp, I'd use a back up chart to keep track of what your original temps were so you can look at it, if the corrected temps end up looking funky after awhile.

Thanks lady's. I have one more charting question. I promise it will be my last. This morning I took my temp and it was 97.83 I took again (I just wanted to see if it was the same,) and it was 98.19. What would cause such a jump?

The thermometer was still warm from the first time you took your temp, and that will make it inaccurate.

Did you move around between the time you took the first and second temp? If you moved abit then your body would produce some heat and make the temp go up.

Did you put the thermos in the same part of your mouth the second time? Sometimes I get a different temp if I put the thermos on right cheek or left cheek but it's only a 0.1 deg difference.

Are you using a basal thermos with speed-read? If it's the speed read type then the room temp would affect the temp reading. It's Ok to post lots of questions, we can all learn from each other.

I put in the same part of my mouth. I don't understand all of this charting stuff. Last month I was sure I didn't ovulate, but FF gave me cross hairs on day 19, and my doctor said day 15. This month I am so sure I did O, but still no cross hairs.
