Temp & Nightshift


Is it worth temping? I do 2 night shifts a week obviously this will effect.

Anybody done it?

No must do that. That's the problem i miss out on sleep 2 night a week. With 2 boys at home i rarely go to bed in the morning after a night shift. I just grin and bear it lol. Off to look at google.

I was wondering the same thing, i sometimes work 3 nights a week so i think it would just mess up a chart unfortunately.
I charted when TTC no1 but i only worked the odd night then.

I'm wondering the same. I wasn't on nights with my first two. Work two nights a week and barely sleep (only when kids nap) when I get home. I either don't temp those days and rely on other signs too, or if I get a good nap I temp then. If it's way off I'll just discard it later.

I used to temp after nightshifts. In order to get an accurate reading you MUST have three hours sleep.

That's wishful thinking. I would very rarely get my head down for that long after a night shift. If i'm out this month think i'm just going to start opks next cycle.
