Can anyone give me any advice or tips on charting BBT?

I am wanting to give charting BBT a shot. I'm just not sure were to start. Any pointer or tips would be great. This will be our third month TTC. I was hoping for a BFP this time, but AF came yesterday. :mad: Oh well, this just means its the start to a brand new cycle.

Have you already set up an account on Fertilityfriend.com? If not, it's a great place to chart temps. Also, get a BBT thermometer. You can find them at Walmart fairly cheap. They read in .00 in stead of .0, such as 99.45 vs 99.4. When charting BBT .05 can make a difference. Make sure you set your alarm for a time that you will be able to get at least 3 hours of sleep before waking and that it's something you can do everyday. It's very important to do this at the same time. Also, try to keep your therm beside your bed. You should try to move as little as possible since this raises body temp and can give inaccurate readings. Hope this helps :)
