I wouldn't get too hung up on what time you're taking it.... Usually what matters more is how long you've slept before taking your temp (recommended for best results is at least 3 hours).

so - should i do it then the first time she wakes up? since that is usually the longest stretch?

Waking up to nurse should not cause a problem with your temps, just record it whenever your comfortable with it. People get too caught up on the "3 hour rule", just pick one, about 5 or about 8 and also whether you take it at 7 or 8 won't matter, as long as its "about" the same time.
