Congratulations to lactatinggirl and bentlaj11 on your BFPs! It is so encouraging!
On the subject of temping while co-sleeping, I was also wondering what other people's experiences are...I'm glad nstewart brought it up. I thought I read in TCOYF that you need 3 hours of consecutive sleep... Can anybody confirm this? It's so hard when you are co-sleeping and your little one is waking up all the time to comfort nurse!
With my 9 month old DS, I can get this number of hours-- but, usually when it is from about 10pm to 1 am. This is because he sleeps in his crib for the first part of the night, then when he wakes around 1 am I go and get him and bring him into bed with us-- so before I get him, I take my temp. Then, the marathon of on/off comfort nursing for the next several hours begins, until it is time to get up! So I'm not able to get a temp for my 'normal' waking time in the morning (before, when I was ttc, I set my alarm for 6 am 7 days a week). Adding to the issues I'm having is that I'm temping only if I remember... I'm in such a fog because of all the interrupted sleep, so I'm getting temps for every 2nd night or so. I should add that there is the odd time when my DS has slept longer, so instead of 1 am I'm taking my temp at 3 or 4 am.
I need advice on how to approach temping, when it is like this. Does it still work, for the most part, regardless of you take your temp at 1 am or 4 am? Or does it need to be at the same time every morning? I know that skipping the odd temp is okay, but what about a large number of days? Is it still possible to get an overall picture of what is happening in my cycle? If I don't get a BFP this cycle, it will be my 4th ppaf.
