Hi ladies! I started temping yesterday b/c I just can't take the suspense anymore. And to stop myself from POAS every day, I guess I'll pop a thermometer in my mouth instead. Heh heh.
My question is this: my thermometer is a digi but it doesn't beep when the temp is ready. :-/ I *think* I let it go for at least a min this morning (could have been a little longer) Well today, just to test it, I kept it in my mouth for 3 mins and it continued to rise the whole time. I thought digis only took one min to temp? How long should I let it go for? Do you think I should throw out this morning's temp? I'm so confused. Stupid thing!

Hi! Welcome to temping! I find it really rewarding, and it gives you a lot of information about how your body works. If I were you, I would go to Target or Walmart and pick up a Basal Thermometer. It's made for taking your Basal temperature in the morning and will give you a more consistent temperature. They usually cost ten bucks or less. I don't know the answer to your question about the thermometer beeping, because mine beeps when it's done.

Hi Marie! I'm pretty new to this myself so not sure about whether or not to keep the temp but I agree about getting a new thermometer. Then you won't have to guess at the time and each reading will be consistent. I think you'll really like temping. It tells you so much!
