If we are not pregnant this cycle I am really thinking about starting to temp but I have an issue. I wake up at all different times durning the week. Mon is 615am tues and frin are 545am and weds thurs is 830am. I know from being on here you need to temp at the same time every day. Oh an not to mention that DF and I are up all sorts of hrs on the weekends. I just do not know what to do if I decide to temp. Is there something else I could use? confused

If I were you, I'd temp at 5:30 every morning. Just set an alarm, temp, then either go back to sleep or get up.

On the weekends just make sure you temp after at least 4 hours of sleep.

It just don't temp on those days unless its around your predicted fertile window.

Could do that but I have no clue when my fertility window is. I have only gotten one positive opk in december that was it. Still using them and nothing so far

This. 
I temp at 7am every morning. Sometimes I have to get up anyway and other times I just reset the alarm and go back to bed. Even on the weekends. However I did forget to set my alarm Friday night, so my Saturday reading was at 9am and WAY different, but luckily I don't NEED to be temping right now. I just keep up with it so it is a habit.

I had the same problem. I work overnight every thursday night and just started temping this cycle. My reading friday afternoon when I woke up was super high so I am not sure what to do about this.

Honestly I take a temp when I wake up. During the week I take at around 5 25am cause go to work. On weekends is whenever I wake up cause as long as you sleep for 3 hours. I temp to make sure I ovulate so I will see a biphs graph. I never want to drive myself nutts with precise time. Ttc is hard enough

Just cause I wake up at different times it will be ok? As long as I do not get out of bed and check it? How do I chart it. Yes it is very hard TTC and trying to find the right meds too
