How do you take your bbt?

If af comes this cycle I'm going to start charting.  So I was wondering, how do you take your bbt?  Orally or vaginally?  Is one way better than the other?  And what are the specific rules on taking it?  Thanks ladies.

Orally here. I set me alarm 1 hour before I need to get up for the day so I can take my temp and sleep a little more lol

Orally. I'm usually half asleep when I temp. I would probably hurt myself if I did it vaginally, lol.

I took mine orally. Make sure you take it at the same time everyday or close to it. Don't switch from oral to vaginal. Make sure you get at least 3 hrs of undisturbed sleep. Don't move around before or while taking it just lay still. Keep thermometer next to your bed so it is within reach. Don't drink anything before taking your temp. FertilityFriend is a good site for charting. They offer a free charting course which is very helpful.
