Trying to conceive

Hi. This morning I took my temperature, switched it off, then forgot whether it was 35.XX or 36.XX so quickly switched it back on and put it back in my mouth. The reading changed from 36.48 to 36.32 within a matter of a minute. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my thermometer? I hadn't moved etc, it really was my arm to my mouth to switch it off, then switched it back on with same arm and plonked it back in my mouth..... Thanks!

That's perfectly normal, as it's to do with how awake you are. Hence why it needs to be taken the moment you wake. I would use the first temp.
Also, are you putting it in the same section of your mouth each time? If not, you should be.
