Best thermometer to buy?

Just that really. I am going to start to chart temperatures next cycle (only on cycle#2 but am 35 and clock ticking!). I'd like to buy a digital basal temp thermometer but as usual there are LOADS to choose from and I don't know which to go for.
Can anyone recommend one?

I've recently started temping - first I bought the babymad 2 decimal place thermometer from Amazon and initially thought it was useless as my temps were pretty low, averaging 36.40 at 6am. I then realised the battery was really low! I replaced it but my temps were still low, so I bought another one (off amazon again, can't remember the name) and my temps are STILL low. I am now wondering if that's just my waking temp, and so have persevered with it. It only my first cycle of temping and haven't ovulated yet so have to wait and see if there will be a temp shift when that happens!

But I would recommend buying some batteries when you get ur thermometer as even the 2nd one is now showing as low bat hmm

....I can't seem to find a 2 decimal place thermometer in the shops though. Would prefer this as would trust its reliability a bit more....if anyone knows where you can buy in the shops I'd be interested!

Lucinda that's a pretty normal temp for an adult smile

Thanks ladies, I've ordered the babymad one from Amazon as it was only £5. I really resent the name though! I'm not babymad because I'm charting, I'm baby focused! :-)
