Do you use a basal thermometer that reads to the 1/100th or to the 1/10th?
I was so excited about charting my first month off the pill that I got one from CVS that reads to the 1/100th. I had totally forgotten that the TCOYF book highly recommends getting a thermometer that does 1/10th b/c she feels the 1/100th can be ?confusing?.
Well after about 14 days of charting, my thermometer has gone bad. I was wondering why since the first day of use it said ?Lo?. I did not know what it meant at the time and kept using it, but now in retrospect I thought ?Duh, of course it meant a low battery!!? J
The past few mornings I have not been jotting down my temp after taking it, but would write it down after getting dressed. I was thinking that it was funny that the past several days after hitting the ?recall temp? button on the thermometer, that my temp was always 97.7. After I finally figured out that the thermometer is going bad, I tried to pull the battery out with no luck. So I figure that it?s easier to just buy a new one.
All of that to say??I?m trying to decide if I?m going to exchange my thermometer (since it?s less than 2 weeks old) for a new one, or get a different brand. If I get another brand I was wondering if I should get one to the 1/10th instead of the 1/100th.
