    Default basal body temperature thermometer recommendations???

    What basal body temperature thermometer to you use, like, recommend? I bought the Exact brand one at No Frills thinking I was saving a few bucks, and it is very inconsistent.
    Thanks.

    I used an equate brand cheapy. As long as I took my temp before getting out of bed and at the EXACT same time (set alarm) it worked great. If I was more than 10 min off from the time or had gotten up I couldn't use the temp that day.

    Thanks. I actually just went to Shoppers and bought a Life Brand one out of the pregnancy test section, it says for family planning, and the Pharmacist said that all Life brand are a full money back guarantee if I'm unhappy with it.
    I have a 10 month old so its hard to take it at the same time every morning. Do you think it makes a difference if I had been up a few hours in the night with him?

    I would say so, yes. When you have a little one, don't get a full rest, are up in the night, and can't lie in bed totally relaxed to get a temp, it's hard to get a true read. I remember my temps being all over the place until my DS was about 2 and mostly sleeping in a long term pattern ( he always got up at 3:30 and 5:30). When he slept through the 3:30, I got a good read before we were up for the day at 5:30.
