Hi there
I chart my temp and have a bbt that also beeps, i have been advised that you have to take your temp before you sit up in bed or even talk, if you talk then you take in air which can alter your temp. Im not sure weather you would get accurate temps if you got up and went to the bathroom.
Im sure OH would get use to the beep, my DH doesnt even hear it now!
Dont know if I have been any help but good luck x

lol. when we agreed to bring our ttc date forward, i promised him that i wouldn't let it take over my life and get obsessed with it... but that's exactly what's happened. i rattle when i walk because of the vitamins i take, i spend hours on here reading threads, i talk about my cervix and cm way more than is deemed appropriate by most normal human beings...

he doesn't think i should be charting anyway. he thinks we should just leave it to nature and that it'll happen when it happens...

i think the idea of being woken up every morning by a beeping thermometer is the last straw. lol.

If I wake up extra early then I just hold my hand around the thermometer when it beeps, mine does 3 little beeps when it has finished recording my temp. That muffles it quite a lot.

Do you not use an alarm to wake up anyway if you need to get up early? It certainly isn't as loud as an alarm and has never woken up my husband.

But I wonder whether you could put it in a bit of fabric or something round the body of it, with just the tip left sticking out. They keep your temp recorded until you next switch it on, so you could take it out of the fabric and look at it later to record the temp.

Could you get one and do it for one month? They are only 3.99 or so, so if you end up having to stop because it does annoy him then at least you haven't lost much.

I would think getting up and going to the bathroom would make the temps inaccurate though.

I take my temp vaginally (which I believe is more accurate/less erratic anyway). My hubby also veto-ed the idea of the beeping early in the morning.....esp since I get up 1.5 hours before him most days. Anyway, I found with vag temping I could get up and tiptoe to the bathroom to temp so the beeping didn't disturb him. This didn't not make my temps erratic at all. I am quite careful to to leap up and dash about - I always just get up, dressing gown on, walk to bathroom and temp before I pee or anything.
Also found it didn't matter if I was in a hot country or at home on a cold winter's day my temps were still pretty predictable.

I also found my thermometer changes my temp if I switch it off and back on again even though it advertised that it remembered the temp

i think i'll buy one and see how bad the beeping is... maybe give it go taking my temp vaginally.

who knows, maybe i won't have another cycle!! although, i think that's a bit optimistic - i think b-complex vits have messed up my cycle i think i ovulated much later than usual (around cd28-30). i'm on cd42 now and tested yesterday - BFN i know i'm not out until the witch comes, but i'm 99% certain i'm not pregnant, and even though b vits have increased my lp, i think they've also messed up my cycles and made everything more confusing.

at least if i start temping, i'll have a better idea of whether i'm ovulating.

Just going back to the glass bbt thermometers, from what I remember I believe they keep the temperature until it is shaken, however a glass thermometer takes longer.
