I've been doing lots of reading and researching about how to chart and when to take temps etc. I'd love your thoughts on a timing piece since many of you have been charting for a long time.
So I wake up a lot of mornings before I need to be up. Sometimes an hour or so, but every morning it's different. The first morning I temped at 5:45am, but I'd been in and our of sleep since about 5am. Today, I tempted at 5:35am, but again, in and out of sleep for the hour and a half beforehand. I'm thinking I'm just screwing myself over because of this. I mean I don't get out of bed at all, so I'm not sure if that changes things. I'm only on day 4 in my cycle, so I'm thinking I still have plenty of time to get this temping time figured out.
So what would you do? Would you temp the minute you open your eyes or wait till I'm ready to get out of bed? I've read about needing at least 3 hours and that's where I think I'm going wrong since I'm waking. I just worry that since my eyes pop open at different times I won't get a good read with charting.
Thanks so much for your thoughts as this go around I'm charting since I'm coming off of mirena so I feel so new to this.
