The only one that counts is the one immediately on waking, after at least 4 hrs sleep. Yes, your temp will vary when you move/take covers off/talk/shower/get up!

The thing with temping is to ignore each individual daily temp. You are looking for a pattern of averages over months. It will take a while before you can see the wood for the trees. Be consistent, take temp at same time every day, log it, then forget it.

Where do you take temp from? Orally is not very reliable. Vaginally is usually best reliable option.

You really aren't going to be able to tell what a surge looks like until you've been doing it a few months, temps vary day to day. Try not to become obsessed with what every little thing means, that way madness lies.

I agree that you need to do it for a few months to see a pattern. And there is no point retaking it. Take it as you awake, record that and wait to see if a pattern develops.

I've never felt the need to stick the thermometer anywhere other than under my tongue and have always got a clear chart, but each to their own. smile

Euro I know it's not the nicest thought grin but I had the same problem as OP and asked the same question on here, was advised to take vaginally confused I have to say the idea didn't really grab me but I gave it a go and the results were a lot more consistent.
