Always do it at the same time everyday, before you get out of bed, and get at least 3-4 hours of sleep before temping

Ditto! Also, temping is good at telling you you've ovulated, AFTER you ovulate. Do you use opk's or anything?

Don't move before taking it. Temping vaginally is more accurate than orally.

I am this cycle but I think I missed the surge with my OPKS because I didn't use them while I was on vacation (I brought them with me but just didn't use them...was never near a bathroom long enough to test) and when I got home they were almost POS for 2 days then yesterday it went back to being NEG

I know for me my temp is always 96-96.7 ish before ovulation. Then about a day before I ovulate it will dip lower (under 96 usually) then the next day it jumps to 97.0 or a little higher. then it slowly increases until af and then drops again. When I'm pregnant I've noticed that it shifts higher again around the time of implantation (usually above 98) and gets higher until I get my BFP. :)  (I think it's called a triphasic shift, it jumps at ovulation and then jumps at implantation)   :)

This will really help you! You can also read the book Taking Control of Your Fertility. It's the book that fertility friend is based off of. Make sure to use OPKs as well to help you know when O is getting closer.

Dumb question, but how exactly do you temp. Vaginally?
