    Am really confused with my BBTs at the moment-I'm in my 2ww and as normal am waking up like clockwork at 3am take my bbt and it's high around 36.8 but then when I take it at wake up time at 6:30 it's dropped to about 36.65/7. In previous months I have adjusted it at 3am and taken it again at wake up and it's been spot on. I'm confused now at what temp I should be recording?

    You have to temp at the same time every morning or else it will be inaccurate. 30 minutes can sometimes make a +- .1 difference. Record the one closest to your regular temping time.

    Thats where I'm confused as my awake temps are at my cover line-I've always adjusted them in the past if I took temp earlier but it doesn't seem to be matching up this month

    Yours is pretty normal. I noticed you have a few open dots, try really hard to temp at the same time each morning, it will make it so much easier to understand! xx
