BBT Charting Begins

I bought a BBT yesterday, and today was the first time I took my temperature. I’ve decided to take the temperature vaginally because I have a slight overbite and sleep with my mouth open, which I’ve heard can throw off your temperature. The downside is that I went to bed early last night and woke up this morning at 3:30 AM, which is way earlier than I usually wake up, but I decided to take the temperature anyways. I then went back to sleep until 6:20 AM, took my temperature again, got a different reading. Decided to enter the first reading into FertilityFriend, even though I will normally wake up closer to 6:30-7:00 AM.

The bleeding has been much slower today. DH has been surprisingly supportive throughout my post-Mirena hormonal craziness, forgiving me for my irritability. For the first time in the course of our 9-year marriage, I made him go to the store and buy me tampons, and when he got the wrong brand and kind, I threw a fit and sent him back in a rage. I was apologizing severely by the end of the night, and he was cool about it. So good for him. I’m hoping this means he’s ready to be more supportive about this pregnancy.
