Re: bbt thermometer....
does it have to be a special termometer? Or can it be a regular one?

It doesn't matter the brand of thermometer. BBT thermometers usually read the the hundredths place instead of the tenths, but either will do. :) It does need to be an oral thermometer though, not the ear or forehead ones.

Re: bbt thermometer....
It should def be a basal thermometer. Those you can use orally or vaginally. vaginally gives better/more accurate readings. ive heard and read horrible things about the walgreens kind. I have two BBTs. One is the purple rite aid one and the other is the pink and white up&up target one. i like them both. they both seem accurate and work well. the rite aid one takes about a minute to read, and the target one takes only about 25-30 seconds. ;]

Make sure to temp at the same time every morning, right after you wake up, before you get out of bed. I used to temp at 6AM, but my son kept waking me up earlier than that and I wouldnt get my solid 3 hrs of sleep before temping... so what i do now is set my alarm for 4:45am, temp and go back to sleep. works so much better and now i have way more accurate temp readings. Well, im preg now, so i guess I should stop temping, but im so used to it now!

Re: bbt thermometer....
This is my 2nd Walgreens one (because I mysteriously lost the first one) and I love it. It was about $20. It looks like a normal theromometer only it's pink. The one I had before was a little better because it saved the last temp. This one doesn't do that so I have to make sure I write it down as soon as I take it.
