No luck this recco's? — The Bump
TTC after 35

No luck this recco's?

I'm sad that we didn't make it happen this month but not depressed. Technically it was our first month REALLY trying. I never got a + I thought I'd try to chart. I'm just not sure what basal thermometer to get. Any suggestions??

  • I bought one at target it works fine, as far as I can tell, I do recommend getting one that beeps! because I usually fall asleep after sticking it in my mouth. Mine also has a short memory, so if I don't read it immediately I can look at it later, I think they are all digital.

  • Everything that Heather said!  I got mine at Walgreens for pretty cheap.  You should get one that has an extra decimal place if possible because the temp shift can be very slight in some women so this will help show the variation better. 
    Me 39 & suspected PCOS, DH 42. Went off BCP when we got married in 11/11, seriously TTC since 3/12.  Six cycles of clomid = BFNs.  Suspected endometriosis & HSG showed both tubes blocked.  Sept 2013 IVF 5D transfer of two perfect embryos = BFN.  Started acupuncture and taking time off to drop some pounds & get healthier before FET in April 2014.

  • It's been so long since I temp'd I don't remember what I bought, but I did check them on Amazon and looked at the reviews.  Some got absolutely horrible reviews and some were great.  I would start there!
