I'll just have to stick it out and see what happens. I'm actually thinking about doing both (I have 2 BBTs...I actually think I have 3 or 4...I keep losing them, lol) and tracking them on two separate accounts so I can see what happens. Thanks for your help ladies.

Lol more things to try haha
I agree with others -- temps can be wacky up and down a lot -- that doesn't mean it's wrong The key is to identify a sustained temp rise post ovulation which is above your personal coverline (essentially an average of the prior temps). Are you charting on paper or using a tool?

Stephanie - I try to check CM but when we are DTD a lot it's just not that clear for me. never checked cervix but no real need to on my end, temping is pretty darn accurate for me. I've only had one or two cycles where i've questioned it.

My Ovulation Chart
Yep me too
Although I agree with Mel, when doing the deed often then it's too much going on
I don't think I have anything new to add but the fan/window/heat shouldn't affect your temp unless they are enough to make you shiver or sweat in which case they are probably disrupting your sleep too. I set my alarm for 5am, use a thermometer that saves the temp, and just go back to sleep. I still miss temps due to my daughter waking up sometimes during the night but never because I get up early or late. Also, what the others said about the temps jumping around is very true! Please don't look at mine because I am very much an anomaly in that area. I would stick with one method for a month or two, as long as you can get a coverline and O line you are good.
