When do you take your temp?

FF says to take it first thing in the morning before getting out of bed.... I always forget!

Re: When do you take your temp?

When I temped I always did it before doing anything else when I first woke up. THat is when you are supposed to do it. Took me awhile to get used to remembering, but once I did it was second nature. I even did it while cosleeping with my 2nd baby to get my 3rd.

Re: When do you take your temp?

You have to do it first, before your temp rises. I used to keep it in my pillow, and would put it in my mouth and take it before I got up. But my kids would play on the bed and it would fall out sometimes. So then I started keeping it on my dresser, and tried taking my temps as I got up and went potty. I put it in when I put my glasses on, and take it as I go to the bathroom, fill DH's coffee cup, etc. I discovered it didn't go up even though I was starting to move around, so it worked better than trying to stay in bed and take it.

Re: When do you take your temp?

I have a notebook and my thermometer on my night stand next to my phone. My alarm goes off at 7:30 every morning and I grab my thermometer and take my temp while still lying in bed and then I write down the result in my notebook. If its a weekend, I go back to bed! I usually put my temp in ff later in the day. It's not so hard when you're all set up to do it!

Re: When do you take your temp?

I take mine at 7:00 am every morning because that's when I have to get up to get my son ready for school... so I just set my alarm for that time every day (even on weekends) and have the thermometer on my night stand... reach over, take temp while still lying down before I actually get up out of the bed... I try my best not to roll over much or anything and just be still... record temp, then get up.

My alarm is set for 5:15. My thermometer is under my headboard. I wake up, stick it in my mouth, and input the temp into FF and then go back to bed until 7:30.

I put my thermometer on top of my phone before I go to sleep. Then I grab both in the morning, stick my thermometer in, and then check my phone till it beeps.
