oooh! i didn't know that! maybe glass thermometer is the way to go then! i could take my temp without a beep waking him up and then i can just take the thermometer out of the room with me when i get up to check the temp.

and in answer to someone's question earlier - i don't use an alarm, as such. i use my mobile phone and have the alert set to "vibrate" and i keep it between my pillows. lol. i can feel and hear the vibrating through my pillow, but OH can't

how he'll cope if/when we do have a baby, i have no idea!! i'm not allowed a clock in the bedroom because the ticking keeps him awake!! lol.

I have a glass thermometer but it doesn't take temperature to 2 decimal places. It also have the disadvantage of not knowing whether it has been in place long enough to take the correct temperature.

I use a digital BBT thermometer. It does beep but it's not that loud (DH is also a light sleeper). So I just take my temperature roughly the same time every morning and as soon as it beeps, I put it back under the pillow and read the result when I get up. DH has no complaint so far! Maybe just get 1 and give it a try?

Hope that helps.

I temp vaginally and dh doesn't even hear the beeping. It is well muffled by the blankets and as soon as it beeps I turn it off. Usually it might only beep once or twice. The beeps are quite soft, softer than my ordinary fever thermometer. Then I put it on my bedside and go back to sleep and check it when I get back up

I take mine vaginally and find that if I close my legs it muffles the sound - boyf has asked a couple of times what the noise is if I dont do this and I tell him its my iphone......he hasnt even contemplated why my mobile would be down there hahaha

I think if you woke up, went straight to the bathroom and did it that would be accurate enough

you have to do bbt before moving in the morning. thats why they say before you even get up to the loo to take the temp

I don't think any of them don't beep.. but I have a CVS one that's pretty quiet that I doubt would wake him up. Just tell him that if he wants a baby he's just going to have to get over it.. plus a baby would be much much louder xx

Another thing is you could do it vaginally. If it's under the sheets you can BARELY hear it. Whenever I temped vaginally I could barely hear it, sometimes I never did. xx
