restless sleep and temping


So, i was so anxious to take my temp this morning, that i woke up every hour from 3am to 8am! Now not sure what my temp should be. Does restless sleep cause higher bbt or lower??

Usually temp at 6am Woke up at 3 to pee. Woke up at 3.45 thinking it was 6 and time to test Woke up at 4.30 took test bc couldnt sleep...temp was 97.7 Woke up at 6 took temp 97.3?! Woke up at 8.30 took temp 98.0

Any opinions?!?!

I did the same fricken thing. Usually I temp at 7:00 am, but I woke up at 5:00 and didn't go back to sleep until 6:00, so I know my temp today is all effed up. I took BBT once I woke at 7:20- 97.65. Took my temp 10 minutes later out of curiosity, and it was lower 97.45 (and that was even after getting up and letting the dog out). So I just wrote it in as 97.55 (right in the middle).

I would use your 6:00 temp, as it is the usual time you wake up and you had slept a time of 1.5 hours since last being up. And also check "sleep deprivation" under secondary in FF

I am sort of a newbie at temping, but what's the rule about the low temps? After O if you're pregnant, temp will stay "high," right? Is staying above coverline considered as high? Was your 6:00 temp above or below coverline?

Yes temp should stay high and drop below coverline when af is close. My temp yesterday was 98.2 today at 6 was 97.3 so thats one degree lower and below coverline which means af is knockin at my door! My earlier temp was 98 which is way above coverline

I am in the same boat! Tomorrow I expect the witch so today was I portent temp date for me I woke up at 3:30am and my temp was 98.1 then woke up again at 6 and it was 97.7 then again at 8:30 and it was 98.3....I just put down the first temp, they are all close but either way the first two are lower temps than the last few the third temp I don't think is reliable since I didn't have enough sleep. Also when I say I woke up and temped, I don't get up at all, I just wake up, temp, and fall right back to sleep lol
