    Default does temp tracking work in a busy life?

    So I'm going hard on TTC #3 in 2015 and after scoping out O tracking options at the chemist I bought, among other options, a thermometer to do temp tracking. When I got it home and read the instructions it said to test first thing in the morning before moving, and that I'm looking for a half degree drop in temp to identify O. Seems like that would be hard to spot, and hard to do with 2 kids to get up for in the mornings!

    Do they work? Do other ladies pick up a half degree temp drop? Does it have to be before I do anything in the morning? I've got my doubts I can manage that! Good thing I've also got a First Response Pregnancy Planner kit, and a Clear Blue Ovulation tracker, so I'm probably all stocked up on alternatives...

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    I work shift work and found that I still got pretty accurate temps. Try to take it after a minimum of three hours sleep and it should still do the job.

    I do shifts too.. Wake up all different times and it works. I can see a,shift after o. As soon as I wake up i take it. Takes less than 30sec and I have fertility friend app that I record it in. So exciting waking up each morning finding out the next piece of the puzzle
