Question about temping

Good morning All,

I started temping for the first time 4 days ago. I did pretty good the first two days - though admittedly I walked to the bathroom before realizing I needed to take my temp. I forgot the 3rd day until after I had my coffee so I skipped that day. Then this morning I carried my son downstairs first before remembering and it was .4 degrees higher than normal. Should I discard the temp from today?

I have a 2 year old who normally wakes me up so I am having trouble 1) remembering and 2) taking the temp before I go to get him once he wakes up.

Any tips or tricks for remembering to take temp before I go get my son out of his crib?

You can't count today. Only count the temps u do while lying down before getting up in the morning. I also keep it under my pillow and them immediately record the temp in my cell phone memo. Set an alarm clock. Good luck!

I set the alarm on my phone. I use a certain ringtone, that I only use for that. Plus the label on the alarm says, "TEMP TEMP TEMP!!!" LOL I picked 15 minutes earlier than when I normally ever get up. If it's a sleep-in day, I just temp and roll back over. It just takes getting into the habit. Even keep temping through AF (that way your in the habit) Good luck!

Put your thermometer ON your alarm, so when you go to turn off the alarm, the thermometer is in the way. Very hard to forget then. That's what I had to do when I started.
