I have bought them at drug stores, Target, Walmart, online, and from friends who had extra ones. Any digital therm will work.

If you want a classic mercury BBT therm, I know the couple to couple league carries them online. I keep one of these as backup...I am forever deleting my last digital temp by accident

I got my bbt therm from Drugstore.com. Cheap and they send it to you.

I would advise that you get a bbt though. You can do it with a regular one - but they don't register changes quite as well. (I though you could use anything until I was a FF guide, and saw the differences between a chart using a regular therm and a bbt.)

Here is a link to the one I use (and have been using for two years), it had a light, keeps your last temp.
BD Basal Therm
