I'm going to start temping. Did you take your temperature whenever you first woke up after your longest sleep, or did you set an alarm for the same time each morning? I often wake up around 4-6am and go to the bathroom, then go back to sleep until 7am.

I'd take it when you wake first

Thanks. Does that mean taking it at 5am if I wake up then? Even though I'd go back to sleep until 7, guaranteed? I keep reading conflicting advice - most suggest trying to keep it the same time everyday, which is only likely to happen if I do it at 7am (but I could have only been back asleep from nipping to the bathroom for 30 minutes some days).

It should be immediately on waking if you have slept for more rhan 4 hrs and should be the same time each day. So I'd do it when you woke for the loo

Id take it the minute you open your eyes. If you get up, go back to sleep then wake again after a few hours I dont think it'll give you an accurate reading. I took my temps as soon as I woke up, before I moved an inch lol :-)
